Hi Jeff, they sure do but it is no where as good as the Mizuno tool. I saw it in my issue of Runnersworld and in all honesty, I wasn't impressed with it. The Mizuno tool takes into account everything from gender, weight, how you stand, how you run, how many miles, type of foot, how you strike, how your flexibility is. But it is only a tool. Ultimately, we know what is best for us. Take care.

The September Runner's World features shoe ratings this month.

They have a shoe advisor tool, too:

Hi Ace, The best shoe is what works for you. You can't always go by what the magazines say or what a shoe clerk might say. If you have a RoadRunners Sport nearby, go see them and have them do a complete analysis of your feet and running style. It is free. They will video tape you with your current shoes, analyis your running style and then make a recommendation for a shoe. Then they will re video tape you with the new shoes. I have the flattest feet in the world. You would think that I would run in a motion control shoe but instead, I run in a neutral shoe. Using a motion control shoe makes me roll horrendously and puts so much stress on my shins and knees. With neutral, I have superb form. Suprisingly, it was this precision fit that recommended neutral for me a couple of years ago and with that analysis, I went to Roadrunners Sports, they did the analysis and confirmed that I do best in neutrals.
Good luck to you.
Faith (ducky)

Faith (and Love)

Thanks. I have never run in Mizuno shoes. This tool says I'm neutral but when I go to stores they always say I need a stability shoe for overpronation. I think I'll have to test these out.
Ace.

I agree with you Sheryl. I only use Mizunos and I love them! They have made all my problems and injuries literally disappear and these have been the only shoes that don't give me black shoes. Which do you run in? I love the enigmas. I feel like I am flying and they are so comfortable.

I just love Mizuno shoes, I have a few (to many) pairs of them. They seem to fit my feet perfectly.

Here is another great tool that may help you get the right shoe. Unfortunately, the recommendations are limited to Mizuno shoes but the information that you will derive from this is exceptional and good to know.
