Good Running Shoes: How to Find Running Shoes that are Right for You
How do you find good running shoes? Well, it’s pretty simple and easy as long as you know a few basic ground rules.
Just like with running apps, I very frequently am asked, “What are the best running shoes?” or “What running shoes are your favorite?”
While it’s not necessarily “hard” to find good running shoes in the sense that there are so many different top-quality running shoes available, these are still hard questions to answer because quite frankly, the answer is different for everyone. And just because I personally like a pair of running shoes, doesn’t mean they’re right for you.
I’ve actually written about how to choose good running shoes in the past (waaaay back in 2012), but since this is a pretty important running topic, and since Daniel Ayers from the extremely helpful running and fitness blog, Walk Like a Butterfly, kindly shared a very detailed infographic that outlines each important step in the process, I wanted to revisit it.
Before we get to the infographic, though, I want to re-highlight what I personally think are the two most important steps when it comes to finding and purchasing good running shoes.
OK, now that we’ve got those two important steps covered, check out this infographic to learn some of the more in-depth details you may want to know about before heading to the store!
