Agree with running style. I was a heel striker for 95% of my running career. Then I had hip discomfort bad enough to force me to change to a mid-forefoot striker. I have either bursitis, a damaged labrum, or both. Heel striking means all impact goes straight into the hip joint, and is not absorbed by quad, hamstring and calf action.

The style change made a big improvement in speed/efficiency and comfort. But the damage was done to my hips after 20 years of poor form. I stopped running and switched to biking, hiking and swimming.

Running form is a big deal! I forgot to mention previously, I was a heavy heel striker and over strider, working on landing made a pretty significant difference. It took awhile to break the muscle memory to run with more cadence and with more of a forefoot landing.

Been a big fan of the Mizuno Wave Rider Knit. They just introduced a couple years ago and with arthritis in my big toe, the knit upper is nice and roomy but great shoe. Typically do 15-20 miles a week in them. Only compliant, and not sure if the shoe or me, as have been in these for the last 4-5 pairs is I eat the liner up in the heel of both, but some moleskin and duck tape patch it upon
