How to Choose the Right Running Shoes
Road vs. Trail Running Shoes
Road running shoes tend to be wide in size, and they are designed to use on pavement. Its sole has slight irregularities, and it is very flexible. Because pavement is a tough surface, thick cushions are essentially integrated for the user’s comfort. On the contrary, trail running shoes are designed for off-road routes with very aggressive outsoles for substantial traction. Since off-road running can vary from different terrain, these shoes are reinforced with underfoot protection to fortify support and stability.
When Buying Shoes
Buy them at the end of the day when you feet tends to be enlarged. When trying them on, make sure that you have a gap the length of a thumbnail’s between your toes and the shoe box. The gap provides room for normal swelling to occur during a run.
