    There is this running shoe shop in London call Run and Become. You go
    in there with your old pairs of running shoes, and they get you to run
    around while they watch you. Then they make recommendations on what
    shoes fit you best. They carry all sorts of brands... I know you don't
    live anywhere near London but is there any chance of finding something
    similar in your part of the world? Ask the people in running clubs /
    societies and they might know something.
