Buyer’s Guide

How to Buy Running Shoes. The shoe dramatically improves the comfort of a running shoe on local trails, forests or marathons. The right partner can help prevent accidents and injuries, and the wrong partner can increase the risk of injury. Buying the right running shoes is a good decision, especially for keen runners. Know what to avoid Avoid buying trendy shoes. You shouldn’t buy shoes just because they are brightly colored, spectacular, or look as light as a feather. Shoe manufacturers use these properties to entice consumers to make spontaneous purchases without worrying about whether the shoe is the right choice for their needs. In the end, it’s much better to buy simple shoes that fit like a glove and give you the support you need than cute, trendy shoes that will hurt your feet from the first week of running. Avoid gadgets. You should also avoid believing that “specialty” shoes will help you run longer, faster or better. Many shoes advertise properties such as shock absorbing cushioning or claim that they will help you lose weight or even heal an injury. However, experts say there is no significant difference between this shoe and the simpler, no-frills sneakers. Even the minimalist barefoot running shoes that have become so popular in recent years have no scientific proof of a runner’s risk of injury. Remember to test your shoes before you buy. On average, a buyer selects a new pair of sneakers in 10 to 15 seconds. However, it is strongly recommended that you test your new shoes for at least a few minutes before making a decision. Try on both shoes and spend a few minutes strapping them on, walking around, and trying out different moves. If possible, run on a treadmill or walk to see how they feel while you are running. You also shouldn’t limit yourself to the number of pairs you try. A good salesperson will know how to find a sneaker that meets your needs. So take the time to try each of them and choose the one you like the most. Remember to ask for discounts. Many specialty stores have specials and discounts at local running or jogging clubs, so be sure to ask before you pay! For example, these offers may include a 10% discount or a special price if you buy more than one pair of shoes at a time. Don’t wait too long to buy your next pair. Remember that even good running shoes are rated at 400 to 500 miles (640 to 800 km). As a result, your shoes should be changed about every six months (for the average runner). Whether they look good or not when the bandage is worn, the risk of injury is much higher. Whenever you buy a new pair of sneakers, write down the date so you know when you should buy a new one.]
