Buy The Best Running Shoes For You
Are you a road runner? A trail runner? A cross-training runner? The type of running that you intend to do will both frame your shoe choice and the level of shoe support needed.
Fit is super important. Shoe sizes vary by manufacturer and even from one shoe model to another. You may need a half-size or even a full size smaller or larger than you think. If you’re unsure, have your feet measured.
We advise always paying special attention to the quality of material used and the overall finish of the shoe, including the technology of the midsoles, outsoles, overlays and uppers. These details ensure top shock-absorption, arch support and overall durability of the shoe.
If you own a well-used pair of running shoes take a look at the pattern on the soles, this will indicate your running mechanics and where you place most of your weight. This is called pronation and just how heavy you are in your balance will dictate the type of shoe build that is suited to you. If your wear pattern is centralized towards the ball of your foot then in general you’ll need a lighter, less supported shoe, whereas a heavy wear pattern at the sides or backs of your heals would indicate that a super-cushioned shoe is probably the way to go .
