ALPHASPORTS HAS GAINED A REPUTATION OF EXPERTISE - TRADING SINCE 1986

The original store opened in 1984. In our first years we sold general sports goods and fashion sports clothing including items by Lacoste, Sergio Tacchini, Ellesse and Fila. With high profile stores in: Walsall, Merry Hill and the Gracechurch centre. The shop and its custom evolved over the years to become what it is now, a sports specialist. 

RUNNING
Ok I admit it, it all started to keep my CV levels up during the off season, but then it grew into an obsession averaging 150K per week. I was picking up injury after injury, and not surprising the state of the art running shoe was inter silver shadow. I ran in a shoe called Adidas Boston, it would be known now as a racing flat. In those days there was no knowledge of bio mechanics or gait analysis, most runners took pain killers and gritted their teeth. 
As running technology increased, so did my appetite for understanding. I now receive daily referrals from: Hospital Consultants, Surgeons, General Practitioner's, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors etc. for gait related medical complaints such as Plantar Facitius and other functional disorders. 


GAIT ANALYSIS
For road running purposes we recommend a motion video analysis. The service is £20 of charge however, is free when purchasing trainers on the same day. Gait analysis takes approximately half an hour and involves a few 20 second runs or walks on the treadmill.
