Athletic footwear

The athletic shoe is commercially available in many styles, designs and colours. In fact there are over 400 different footwear models available to the consumer. How do you know what shoe is best suited to your feet, running style, or injury? Our team has vast experience in footwear prescription.

Dr Michael Kinchington PhD has developed the innovative footwear app Shoe Buddy The App provides current information on a range of running shoes and allows you to scan your foot, enabling Shoe Buddy to determine the correct shoe for you based upon your weight bearing foot shape.

The Centre obtains regular briefs from all the athletic footwear companies and liaises closely with specialty running shoe stores. Furthermore, podiatrists within the practice are involved in post graduate footwear related research.

Let our team to prescribe the shoe for you, provide a list of suitable models matched to foot type, and a shoe matched to your lower limb kinematics, injury history and body shape.
