In this follow up to Episode 11, SSPC Podiatrist Scott Murray looks at the topic “Fit For Purpose” and outlines how important it is to find a shoe that fits your activity.


Many topics are covered relevant to shoe selection including:

the type of activity you are performing

younger vs master athletes

the relationship of shoes to injury prevention

the importance of variety – and not just in your shoe

footwear in kids

the ideal lifespan of footwear

running and osteo-arthritis


… and the single most important factor running athletes should be looking at to reduce injury risk – and it’s not footwear!


By the time you have listened to Episode 11 and 12, you should be able to confidently walk into any retail store and come out with the shoe that is best suited for you.
