How to Pick the Perfect Pair of Running Shoes

By Genevieve Cunnungham

Running is an excellent way to stay fit. It works every muscle, improves cardio, and best of all … it’s really inexpensive! As long as you have some good shoes, you’re good to go. But how do you make sure that you find the perfect pair of shoes to support your habit? To buy the best running shoes for optimal support, take a look at these tips for picking the perfect pair.

Buy the Perfect Fit

Running shoes are the one pair that really need to fit perfectly. If they’re a little too big or a little too small, you’ll wind up with sore toes and blisters. Try on your preferred pair in your size, and then try on a pair a half size bigger and a half size smaller. Walk around for a few minutes in each pair to determine whether they’re going to slip up and down or whether your toes are going to hit the end. It’s also important to lace them up tight to get the full effect.

Buy Support

Running shoes should be super supportive. Most shoes that are classified as running shoes are fairly comfortable, but you should still try them on to make sure the support they offer is exactly what your particular feet need. There should be cushion underneath your feet, support for your arch, and laces that can be pulled tight. If you find that your shoes are not as supportive as you would like, move on and try another pair.

Find Your Style

Running shoes go through some serious wear and tear. Because they’re going to be on your feet often, it’s important to choose a style that suits you. If you like snug, low cut shoes, then find running shoes that fit the description. If you like higher cut, flexible shoes, then find running shoes that fit the description. It’s important to like whatever you buy, so choose a shoe that is 100 percent your style.

If you’re into running, you already know how important it is to like your shoes. You’ll use them often and put a lot of miles on them. If they're uncomfortable or unsupportive, you'll notice quickly. Use these tips to help you choose the perfect pair so that you can keep up your healthy habit for years to come.
