Look For That Shoe:

  • Provides support and cushioning for your activity and foot type (especially arch height)
  • Is just flexible enough to bend near the ball of your foot
  • Offers stable heel support (the heel cup doesn’t easily collapse inward)
  • Has a thick enough heel to absorb shock

Size It Up:

  • Get fitted at the end of the day, when your foot tends to be the biggest
  • Have your foot measured at an athletic store each time you buy shoes
  • Wear your usual athletic socks when trying on shoes
  • Allow a finger’s width of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe
  • Walk or run around the store in the shoes for about 10 minutes

Bonus Round:

  • Replace when the tread is worn down or uneven, usually after 350 to 500 miles of running
