Proper Running Shoes

Recommended Posts

I procrastinated in buying new running shoes because I didn't want to spend the money. I recently purchased new ones (which I love) but it's too late.

Because I was running in shoes that no longer had the support or cushioning the metacarpal in my big toe got aggravated and has swelled up to the point I can hardly stand and walk.

 

My tip is to pay attention to your shoes and make sure that you have enough support in them!

 

I haven't been able to continue my training, but am hoping that in a week I will be back. Let's hope this anti-inflammatory prescription works quickly.

Great advice! Thank you for sharing your cautionary tale. Its true proper running shoes are very important but they are also very expensive so I can definitely understand why people put off buying them. 

I hope you get better soon kat! good luck :)

Get the right running shoes.

Wearing the right running shoes is the key to comfort and injury prevention. Visit a running specialty store to get fitted for the right running shoes for your foot type and running style. Also, make sure you don't run in worn-out running shoes – they should be replaced every 300-400 miles

i did just this.  went into a running store (fleet feet) and they measured my feet while sitting and standing.  they watched how i walk and how i run.  i told them around what i wanted to spend.  the woman helping me brought out 3 pairs to try on.  watched me run in them.  none of them felt "really" good, so she got a pair of new balance 880's and they are fantastic.  the whole visit to buy 1 pair of shoes took just over an hour and was totally worth it.  i cant recommend it enough.
