Steps for Selecting Your Running Shoe (part 4)

Step 5: Visit your local running store

Have you known better about what type of footwear you are searching for after referring to the above step? Then, now, without any further ado, visit your local running store! Below are some tips and tricks which can make your trip much more comfortable.

– Bring your old footwear to show the salesperson

– Put on or ask in terms of purchasing the proper sock kind to run in (You know, decent socks make a world of difference)

– Purchase the latest and most fantastic shoes. Also, look for what fits YOU most.

– Get the salesperson to measure your feet. You see, one foot is, most of the time, slightly bigger. It would be best if you fitted your bigger foot so that you will not lose your toenails on your run.

Plus, before you try on any models, the salesperson may ask you, at least, the following questions.

– What did you run in previously? Did you love them?

– How long have you run?

– Where do you often run?

– How many miles weekly would you run averagely?

– Do you have any foot problems – say, flat feet, overpronation, and high arch?

Depending on your answers to such inquiries, the salesperson should be able to suggest you some shoe models which fit your specific demands

Step 6: Call it done by trying on and guaranteeing the proper fit

Last, try on the footwear. Different companies make use of various technologies to attain the same goal; thus, try on some different pairs for the feel comparison. 

When you try on, be sure that you have adequate room in the toe. As a rule of thumb, have one thumbs width or so between your toe’s top and the end of your footwear. What is more, be sure that there is sufficient room in width.
