Having a video of your feet taken from behind as you walk on the treadmill would enable you to choose the right shoe. Instructions on doing this are on www.runningwarehouse.com under "gait analysis" on the right side of the page. At a running store you can also find out whether your feet turn IN or OUT (at the ankles).

If you google it, there are more guides online for to find out what shoe you need - that could stop the knee pain.

I like my Spira Odyssey shoes. they have springs in heel and forefoot. I walk about 180 minutes a day on the treadmill.

It is disastrous to confuse them.

Recently I started a very aggressive workout on the treadmill, varying grade and speed for 50-60 minutes daily. However my knees have started bothering me. I know some of that has to do with weight, some with age, but can anyone recommend a good shoe that might help? Thanks! emoticon
