I really want to get into running but my feet are preventing me. I understand when you run a lot of force is put through your feet which can make them ache. I'm quite a light person, small and athletic, so compared to the average runner this shouldn't be much of a problem.
I bought a pair of £95 running shoes (if you want to know I'm a 'neutral' runner) but my feet still hurt after a while. I'm not sure if my feet need to 'get used to running' or whether something is wrong. What do you think I can do?

If you've never done any running before, it's bound to have a shock on your feet, that should go without saying.
Start slowly, work your feet into a state where they can take the stresses and strains, google workouts to strengthen your feet.

This happens to my feet too. I think it may have to do with how low the arches of my feet are. I'm looking into buying some orthotics

Go to professional running shop and get some shoes fitted for your feet - shoes are complicated beasts... It can take a while to find the right pair.
