Shoe Size Guide

Getting the right sized running shoe is the first step in ensuring you'll be comfortable and well supported on the run. 

It's not just the shoe length that's important, but the shoe width, as well.  Wearing shoes that are either too narrow or too wide, can cause discomfort and even injury.

We provide a detailed foot measurement guide, involving a good old fashioned pen, paper, and tape measure. This way, you can be sure that the shoes you decide on really are the perfect fit.

When to Replace Your Running Shoes

Like anything in life, your running shoes will eventually run their course. Over time, usage will wear down the features that make your shoes effective, like their cushioning and stability structures.

Though it can be tempting to hang on to old favourites until the very end, doing so can increase your risk of injury. If you’re thinking about changing your running shoes, learn the common signs to know when it's time for a new pair.
