Whether you’re a beginner or an avid runner, having a decent pair of running shoes to train with is key.
Your footwear is probably the most important consideration if you want to successfully achieve your fitness goal – whatever that may be.
There are plenty of important things to think about when buying running shoes, from where you’ll regularly be training to what type of distance you’ll be covering – all will determine which shoes are best for you.
Understanding your feet is vital too – do you have a low or high arch? Is your pronation (rolling of your foot from heel to toe) over or under active? All this information will help you find the most comfortable running shoes to suit your needs.
