Google running stores in your community. The best thing you can do is go to a reputable running shoe store (not necessarily a big box sporting good store) and let them analyze your gait. I have wide feet and it is not easy to find shoes in widths in the box stores. A store for walkers and runners will have a wide variety of shoes (not just Nike) and will talk to you about your activity level. Don't worry about being "big" - runners welcome all shapes and sizes. I go to our local store called Elite Runners and Walkers and they couldn't be nicer! I started out in New Balance because I pronate, then I moved to an Asics. My legs are stronger and I don't pronate much anymore. The pronate shoe was making my knees hurt and the running folks realized that after watching me walk again. They recommended that I move to a Brooks and it has made all the difference in the world. Some people think independent stores are move expensive than the box, but I have compared their price to Dick's Sporting Goods and they are usually the same or less. The locally owned store also keeps track of our purchases and after every $250 spent we get $25 off our next purchase.

i'm just starting out. i know nothing about running. I always wanted to be able to run for more than a bus. So I'm trying. But I have got a bit of a problem. The shoes that I have make the tendon in the bottom of my foot hurt. My knees hurt a bit too. I have no idea why. It makes things difficult when you're trying to be active. Can any body tell me why and what kind of shoes should I look for. I'm a big girl so I don't know if there are certain types of shoes that are better for big people.

Thank you
