Things to Keep in Mind When Finding the Right Running Shoe

What Kind Of Shoes Do You Run In? I run in new balance shoes for running and love the Asics Gel Trabucos; I've tried others but keep coming back to these. I also wear Injinji Socks, use Sole orthotic insoles and Dirty Girl Gaiters. During Arkansas Traveller I ran in the same pair of shoes the entire race, never changed my socks and my feet felt great (it's all relative).

To keep the narrow feet locked don, the shoe has 360-degree wraparound laces and for wider feet a three-fourth length plastic frame is added for overall stability and control. It's cushioned enough to keep your joints safe and is equipped with explosive and springy rubberized EVA midsole.

Pair your socks and shoes. Don't assume your heavier socks will work with your summer running shoes. Some individuals wear heavier socks during the winter and this may lead to the toes being cramped in the front of the shoe causing discomfort, numbness and sometimes jamming of the toes, leading to blood under the toenails. Blood under the toenails can lead to discomfort, to loss of the toenail and even to the dreaded toenail fungus.

High quality new balance shoes for running have become more affordable as the hobby has become more popular. You should look for a material that is water resistant, not water proof. A water proof fabric such as Gortex doesn't breath and will retain sweat and moisture on dry days. Also look for a tough outer material, such as cordura nylon. Something that will last more than a few scrapes and bumps. If you pronate or supinate, that is, your ankle rolls to the outside or inside when your foot strikes the ground, then pick a shoe that has a rigid upper and is torsionally stiff.
