1. How to Find Properly Fitting Running Shoes
Your running shoes are your most important gear. But choosing your running shoes can be tricky.
With countless brands and styles to choose from, there’s no single best running shoe for all people. The Brooks running shoes that fit your friend might not work for your sister who is more comfortable in Nike running shoes. So, finding the right ones comes down to doing a little research. And, since trying them on isn't an option right now, we're here to help.
The running shoes you buy should feel comfortable right out of the box. Don't buy shoes that are too tight and run in pain until they break in—if they break in at all.
To find running shoes that fit correctly, check to make sure the length is right: Your running shoes should have about a thumb’s width of space between the end of your longest toe and the tip of the shoe.
Next, get a feel for the shoe’s width. Running shoes should be snug in the heel and midfoot, but they should have enough space in the forefoot to wiggle your toes.
