Andy Barber

Andy has been involved in analysing and reviewing footwear for more than 15 years. He currently writes the footwear guides and reviews for magazines such as Running fitness and Ultra-Fit. Andy works with a team of shoe testers and has written guides on racing shoes, running shoes for women, shoes for heavier runners, track spikes, footwear for personal trainers, trail shoes... you name it, if you wear it on your feet to run in or train in, he's written about it.

Andy's been taken behind the thick security doors at brands such as Nike and adidas to see where the shoes we wear are dreamt up and tested. He has his finger on the pulse of all things running shoe related. Hey, it's very sad and geeky. But it beats working for a living.

You

We want you to join us and give your feedback on all the shoes you have run in.

The idea is that you can use this site to find out which shoes are most likely to suit your needs, but that other people will value knowing about your experiences to help them choose their shoes.

So sign up to be updated on the new launches you should know about and to be asked for your views and reviews on the latest products.

You can review the products you already own and could even be asked to test the latest launches before they hit the stores.
