Top 5 Running Shoes and Why It’s Important to Have Good Shoes

admin January 27, 21

Wearing a good, supportive shoe when you’re running long distances is so important! Good shoes provide foot cushioning, arch support, prevention of injuries, and can even promote improved performance. Here is a list of the top 5 shoes we recommend for you before you start training: 

  1. Hoka Clifton 7

Provides a cushion in the sole of the shoe and are good for runners who are looking for a cushioned midsole and a responsive ride.

  1. Mizuno Wave Rider 24

Soft shoe that has a good responsiveness, especially for runners who are running at faster paces. The shoe also has great traction and is durable.

  1. ASICS GEL-Kayano 27

This shoe is great for runners who prefer a softer underfoot feel, while also being bouncy and responsive enough to give you a nice boost while running.

  1. Brooks Glycerin 18

This shoe is perfect for runners who need lots of support on their feet when running, and are also built for runners who go on longer runs.

  1. New Balance FuelCell TC

Light and breathable and has a special technology to direct sweat away from the foot while on long runs. 

Remember, not every shoe will fit everyone the same. It’s important to take your time, and find the perfect shoe for your feet and that feels the best when you are running.
