How Do I Choose Better Running Shoes?

Any athlete knows that the right type of running shoe is important. Choosing the right shoe can enhance your performance, but it can also increase your comfort as you are running. But what are the features you should be looking for when you select running shoes? And what are the things you should be careful of? Let us take a look at how you can get the best running shoes with minimal effort.

Why Can't I Buy Some Normal Sneakers?

The problem with regular sneakers is that they are not designed for running specifically. In fact, sneakers are often designed for fashion purposes, which means they do not include the features you need for maximum performance.

When running, you will perform actions such as speeding up quickly and stopping suddenly. Regular sneakers are not designed for these things, which means they will be less effective. In addition to that, sneakers do not protect the runner against injury either, as they do not have enough shock absorption.

Are The Most Expensive Running Shoes Always The Best?

This is a common misconception. Even though good running shoes can cost a little more than the average pair your find in stores, they are certainly not the most expensive shoes. In fact, decent running shoes can be quite affordable.

To get the best type of shoes for running, it is always a good idea to look at the provided features. For example, additional shock absorption and cushioning could be incredibly useful for your runs. So, do not look at the price to start with, always look at the features they come with.

How Do I Get Running Shoes That Fit Me Correctly?

Choosing shoes that fit you right is all about knowing your feet and considering some basic rules. Below, we have listed some basic guidelines on choosing running shoes and guaranteeing a proper fit.

Take measurements later in the day - Some people take their foot measurements early in the morning, but this could lead to shoes that do not fit properly. Runners should always remember that feet tend to swell during the course of the day, so a more accurate measurement can be obtained by taking your measurements in the evening.

Room between your heel and the shoe - There should always be sufficient room between your heel and the shoe. Ideally, you should have at least the width of one finger between the heel and the shoe. If you do not have this, you might have a size too small.

Feel the shoe - One of the best ways to guarantee a good fit is by feeling the shoe around the foot. If you feel pinching, it is likely you need a bigger size. On the other hand, if your shoe fits too loosely around the foot, you may need a size smaller.

Consider your foot type - It is possible that certain athletes have a specific type of foot. For example, some athletes have feet that are considerably narrower, while others have wider feet. If you have feet that are either narrow or wider compared to the standard, you should take this into consideration when you look at different shoe designs.

Athletes who have a narrow foot will need a shoe that can provide more support and stability, this to prevent the foot from slipping around inside the shoe. On the other hand, athletes with wider feet can obtain running shoes with a wider sole design and more flexible upper material. Of course, laces are recommended for both, as there provide the best kind of support for the entire foot.

Evaluate your current running shoes - Looking at your current running shoes can help you determine if you need to change your shoe size in the future. When you have gone out for a run, do you often get blisters or chafing problems? If so, it may be necessarily to measure your feet again or to determine if you may need a narrower or wider shoe.
