CHOOSING THE RIGHT RUNNING SHOE

Tips, tricks and advice for finding the perfect fit.


The right running shoes can make a world of difference – they affect your running experience, performance and comfort. It makes sense, then, to carefully consider what footwear is right for you and your running style.

When it comes to weighing up the options, there’s a lot to think about. To start with, it’s important to know the basics of shoe sizing, width and measurement.

To get the most out of your performance, a good understanding of the way your foot moves (and how this affects your running style) is also essential. Trying different lacing techniques is a great way to address common issues, and on top of this, it’s always important to be aware of when (and why) to change your running shoes.

SHOE SIZE GUIDE

Shoe sizes can be confusing, and it’s really important that you’re wearing the right one for you, so that your shoes are as comfortable and supportive as possible.

It’s not only the right shoe size that’s essential, but the shoe width, as well. People often wear running shoes with a width that doesn’t fit them, which can cause tightness, discomfort and even injury.

Check out our useful shoe size and width guide for men, women and children.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR SHOE SIZE

Having running shoes that are a really good fit for your feet can help improve your performance, decrease your risk of injury, and actually increase the durability of your shoes!

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, this can actually increase your risk of injury. If you’re thinking about changing your running shoes, check out our common signs you need new running shoes.
