Tips on how to choose the right and Best Womens Running Shoes?

So here are a few tips on how you should proceed with purchasing your pair of running shoes! Understanding that sales may be lost due to contents below, but that's not what is important, what is important is that you choose the correct running shoe for yourself, and you are happy with the purchase and performance!

  1. Do you run? know what your looking for when choosing your shoes? if you do then that's fine, but if not you need seek advice from a professional before buying your running shoes. A good store will have the appropriate equipment to test your running habits (gait) when you try out the various shoes, this is also a great moment to feel the comfort level.
  2. What you will need find out is how you run, the experts will be able to tell you this in store. They should be able to say if you land on your heel or forefoot first, I know when I got tested for my Men's running shoes that I was amazed at what they can reveal. Most runners appear to land on their heels first, as I do, so this was the area I was most concerned with and wanted additional cushioning, a must to reduce the amount of force that makes it's way up the leg on every stride!
  3. During my running days I placed a great deal of strain on my joints, especially the knee area, this is what caused me to purchase a more expensive and well made shoe from a reliable company and where stability, cushioning and motion is seriously considered when producing!
  4. So apart from the above and as you are probably aware, shoes come in many different categories, specialist shoes created for various conditions, those such as racing, of which are much lighter and have less support and cushioning or those designed for trails and a much tougher environment, now these are the shoes that you need pay particular attention too!

Avoiding those nasty Injuries!

  1. If your just starting out take things easy - no need to rush into things, running is just not about getting fit, enjoyment also plays a part. Your going to build up stamina in due time and work yourself up to a nice stride! Remember to talk with the Doctor if your just starting out.
  2. Talk with a friend or neighbor who you know runs a lot, ask if you can join them, seek advise about what shoes they wear, do your due diligence, in the long run you will be thankful that you did. Remember choosing a mediocre and cheaper pair of shoes is not always the answer. Hit the stores and get the experts to check how you are running, get them to check your posture, you know it makes sense!
  3. What to wear when running - Your clothes really need be comfortable and fairly loose fitting allowing for natural movement. Check the weather prior to leaving, you might have to take additional clothing, especially if it's a cold one. Your going to be running, so your going to warm up sooner or later, then you can take those additional layers off. Probably a good idea to wear a hat and sunglasses if the sun is expected, keep those nasty UV rays from hitting you.
