Dr Michael Kinchington PhD has over 20 years experience and personally reviews every shoe against the latest scientific research in sports medicine across the areas of performance, injury prevention and comfort.

Across running, football, netball, tennis, x-training and children’s sports footwear categories, Shoe Buddy’s market leading technology ensures you always get the right advice and the best match for your athletic requirements.
