Workout Shoes: the quick guide to getting it right

Selecting the Right Pair of Workout Shoes–

selecting a workout shoeNo matter what your fitness level, whether you’re just getting back in shape, or if you are a die hard, there’s nothing quite like picking out a new pair of workout shoes. But with advances in technology and so many choices, it’s good to have a quick mental checklist to consult as you look at a wall of shoes.

Talk to an expert. Do not hesitate to ask the salesperson questions and to explain your current fitness level, and what you want to achieve. They are there for a reason. This is no time for vanity or pride.

Shoes do one thing. Select your shoes based on your activity – the salesperson will know exactly what you need. If you walk, you need a stiffer pair of shoes. If you run, you need something with extra cushion for impact. Avoid making one pair of shoes do everything.

Bring your socks. You will most likely be wearing socks while you workout. So bring a pair you own. Doing so will provide you a more exact fit.

One of a kind. Your foot is unique to only you. So understanding the dimensions and unique qualities of your foot is important in selecting the right pair of workout shoes.

Instant gratification. Your new shoes should fit and feel great the minute you put them on. The days of “breaking in” a workout shoe are long gone. If the fit feels wrong, move on to another pair. Walk around the store, not just in a two foot circle.
