ASICS: Choosing the Right Running Shoe

Choosing the Right Running Shoe

Choosing the right running shoe is a challenge for both emerging and advanced athletes. Factors to consider include running requirements and goals, past shoe brand/style experience, foot shape, foot problems and weather/environmental issues. One thing for certain, choosing the right running shoe will help avoid injury and lead toward a much more enjoyable experience.

Where should you shop? While chain store bargain purchases may be tempting, go to a local specialty running store for your first purchase. Salespeople in these stores are highly knowledgeable and are usually runners themselves. Bring your old shoes and socks that you plan to wear when running. Shop in the afternoon when feet are at their largest and make sure to measure both feet, as there may be differences. Definitely share your running needs, goals, schedule, running locations, future events and specific foot problems with the salesperson.

Please take your time. Make sure that you are not rushed and have ample opportunity to run in the store. Some stores will provide a small track or running strip for this purpose. Finally, do not leave until you are certain that you have the right fit.

So what brand should you buy? With so many to consider, this is a personal choice. However, ASICS Running shoes for 2011 offer exciting new lines to meet and even exceed your running needs and demands. Finding the running shoe that fits perfectly and meets your personal needs will surely make you a happy and healthy athlete. Happy running to all!
