This Is How Running Shoes Should Fit

HOW TO CHECK YOUR RUNNING SHOES FIT

Before you choose a shoe you need to know your size.

“The heel should feel nicely locked into place during the stride (not slipping), and you should also make sure the toe box is wide enough to allow the toes to splay, somewhat naturally, during each step,”

Your running shoe type depends on your foot shape, goals and experience.

If you’re a beginner, extra padding can go a long way to supporting your joints and help exercise without hurting your knees.

”You should never think that a running shoe can be worn-in to fit your foot, it should fit well on day one,” says Sharma.  “Ideally, we would like to see people in a zero-drop shoe – the heel sits at the same height as the toes; it will allow for your foot to function more like a foot should, and reduce forces through your joints by promoting a foot strike closer to your body.”
