About

Hi, Craig Payne here. I started this website to document all the running shoes brands (all 192 of them!). It really started out just being for my own reference. I started using the list to track the search engine popularity of the running shoe brands and reported on that on my running research blog.

For those that do not know me, I typically describe myself as University lecturer, runner, cynic, researcher, skeptic, forum admin, woo basher, clinician, rabble-rouser, blogger, dad. Follow me on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Academia and via Flowcode or Everlinks.

In addition to that, I co-host PodChatLive (and several episodes have been on running shoes); I also blog at Its a Foot, Captain and Podiatry Soapbox. I also teach the Clinical Biomechanics Boot Camp which is now available online. I am the Admin at Podiatry Arena, edit at PodiaPaedia and occasionally work clinically in Croydon.

My most widely used quote:

I am also partial to a Breakfast of Champions.

Current running shoe rotation:
Brooks Adrenaline GTS
Hoka Ten Nine
Hoka Carbon X
Hoka Gravita
