The Importance of Good Running Shoes

Quality running shoes are critical for injury prevention! You avoid blisters, pains, and have shoes that correctly fit your feet. You also are less likely to suffer a strain or fracture. Your feet will benefit from having arch support and cushioning!

I find that Nike Frees, while great for walking around, do not have enough support to run in.

I usually buy Saucony or New Balance, but there are tons of other brands out there that work well. Running shoes have various levels of cushion and feel, so be sure to pick what feels best against your feet. I highly recommend going to a speciality running store, where they size you and tell you what shoes is best for your feet.

Running shoes should be replaced anywhere from 300 to 500 miles. Ask an employee at the running store or a coach for more advice. Without a doubt should you prioritize comfort over looks when it comes to running shoes. It is more important to be a healthy, strong runner than to have “cute” shoes. Additionally, it is easy for quality shoes to get expensive… However, investment is definitely WORTH it.

Running shoes get muddy… easily! Wash them and then stuff old newspapers inside for them to dry quicker.
