2. Do a Free Run Test 

Whether you’re a runner or like to take longs walks, having the correct shoes is crucial. Did you know we have different pronation levels and if your legs pronate while walking, jogging, or running you risk being injured? It is crucial to wear correct running shoes, and that’s exactly why ASICS offers Run Analyzer, a free screening to select the right shoe based on your physique and pronation levels. It takes about 15 minutes to get done and is available at key locations in Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Mall. You just need to show up, ask for Run Analyzer screening, and do a short walk on a treadmill.
