DO YOU KNOW THE TYPE OF SHOE THAT WORKS WELL FOR YOUR SIZE, STRIDE AND PREFERRED RIDE?
Proceed directly to the grid below. The reviewed shoes are arranged in terms of cushioning, weight, sole height, flexibility and stability features, as measured in the RW Shoe Lab in Oregon, US. You will find the lighter, less supportive shoes in the bottom left and the highly cushioned, more stable shoes in the top right. Shoes in the middle provide a balance of performance and protection features, and can work well for many runners.
Put yourself into a runner group using the Runner Group table on the right. When you’ve decided on a colour-coded group on the bottom of the table, locate it on the grid below. Shoes in that encircled group tend to work well for runners like you. Start your search with shoes that fall well within your group, but feel free to consider models along the border or in a neighbouring group. With a little care you will find the running shoe that suits your needs.
