PT03 or other brand

#1
If all goes well I should be starting basic training within the next 6 months, I'm due a new pair of running trainers and just wondered if it is worth buying a pair of the army issued PT03's to get used to them (if thats possible) or just to stick to what I know for the time being?

I used the PT03's and they are without a doubt the best trainers I have used so I would definitely recommend them, however there are a new model out - the PT - 1000 so they might be worth looking at.

So where is currently the best place to buty new PT-03's if your TA and cant access PRI and dont want to pay regular silly civvy price ?

PT03 are good, robust trainers no doubt. However I would advise you to visit a specialist running shop and get a gait analysis. This will point out any problems with your feet and if any particular trainers would help sort them out (or not make them worse).

In my case being a big lad I tended to go for cushioning in my choice - a couple of years back a woman in one of the shops persuaded me that gait analysis was a good idea. Turns out I have VERY severe overpronation, a diagnosis that was later confirmed by a physio in camp. Basically I had been running in the wrong type of trainers for god knows how long, doing my legs and back a bit of damage (my left leg is always in pain now, probably due to this).

Get your self looked at and save a lifetime of problems - the people in the shops are all runners and really keen to help in any way.
