Whether running professionally or just for fun, the shoes that you use play a vital role. For the most part, your running shoes will determine how long you can run comfortably and the feeling after as well. In this post, we give you some tips on how to choose the best running shoes. Read on.
1. Buy Your Shoes In The Evening
A scientific fact that many pro athletes know about is that our feet start swelling from around 5 am in the morning until 4 pm in the evening. This process of the feet swelling can greatly impair your ability to pick the right running shoe. Experts advise that you should instead buy your running shoes in the evening when your feet are not swelled and thus end up picking something comfortable.
2. Consider The Size
It may seem like common knowledge that anyone buying a shoe will consider the size. While that is true, most of us who engage in sport running do it wrong. The size of a shoe will depend to a large extent on the brand. That is to say, if you wear size eight of Brand A, your size may be bigger or smaller when you buy Brand B. The reason for this difference is the design of the running shoe in question and the material that the manufacturer uses to make the shoe.
3. Take Along A Previous Pair
The best advice you can get when it comes to buying running shoes is to carry along a previous pair. Additionally, also tag along with any socks or inserts that you have been using with that particular pair. It helps to fit shoes with such inserts to help you choose the right size. Moreover, carrying a previous pair will help the seller assist you better as you shop for a new pair.
