If you’ve been don­ning the same shoe brand and style for years, you prob­a­bly won’t have any prob­lem run­ning a race in a pair that’s fresh out of the box. You know what works for you. On race day, you want a shoe where there won’t be any ‘sur­prises’, mean­ing no blis­ters, no rub­bing, no pain. How­ever, it’s al­ways wise to run a few work­outs in a new pair. For longer races, like a half or full marathon, al­ways do a few long runs in a new pair, just to make sure you won’t en­counter any prob­lems on the course. – Nikki Reiter, biomech­a­nist and coach with the Run SMART Pro­ject
