I will assume that pain when running might not be good for starters. Here's my thing, I have been trying to begin running and do great until one foot starts to hurt in the same place every time. If I ignore it then it spreads to other areas like my hip in that same side. I am guessing its the wrong shoes but I don't know.
The store I got my shoes at watched me walk, and measured my feet then advised me on the best shoes. Its either my stride or the wrong size. The smallest size in shoes I normally wear is a 8.5 wide. The people were nice but pushy and I ended up with a size 7 or half size bigger I think. They are tight too me but that's my experience and have no idea how running shoes should fit. I tend to wear wide widths in almost any shoe if anyone's curious. Dress, casual, doesn't matter.
I'm not sure whether to go to a different store or to just figure something else out so my foot isn't killing me for the rest of the day after running. Any advice would be appreciated.
