When buying new running shoes, there are many things to think about. Most importantly, don't be afraid to ask questions. Many runners would be happy to give advice on finding the right shoes. And salespeople in shoe stores are there to answer all of your questions. If you are planning on using your shoes for running, invest in running shoes. Cross-trainers and other sneakers may look stylish, but they are not best for running. It is a good idea to wear a pair of socks that you would wear if you were to go running. That way, you can make sure you're getting the right fit. As comfort and fit are the most important thing, make sure everything feels right. Is there enough room for your toes to move comfortably? Is the shoe wide enough for your foot? Is your heel comfortable? If you are choosing between two sizes, go with the larger size. You can always wear thicker socks! Once you find the right shoes, running will be as enjoyable as it is healthy.
