About Us

Runbl was set up with one goal in mind – to help guide runners through the maze of running shoe options available on the market today.

Written by experienced runners for runners of all experience levels, we hope to provide you with no nonsense, honest reviews of the latest running shoes.

Our Story

When Paul first started out running he quickly realised that he needed a new pair of running shoes.

With no specialist running store close by he headed to the nearest sports shop in the hope of finding a new pair.

After chatting with a sales assistant for a few minutes, they recommed he go for a top of the range pair quoting the old addage that you always get what you pay for.

However things weren’t so straight forward.

After the first run, Paul found that his ankles and legs were aching more than usual which was very unusual!

Heading online to find out what might be the cause of the problem, someone mentioned on the runners world forum that the pains might be due to wearing incorrect running shoes.

Disaster

Rather than recommending the right shoes for his foot type – the sales assistant had simply sold him the most expensive pair – even though the fit wasn’t right.

After spending hours looking for information about foot types and researching the best running shoes for his foot type, Paul quickly realised that there was an opportunity to build a website that could help others looking for the right running shoes for their foot.

Runbl was born.
