WHEN IT COMES to run­ning a 2:39 or 2:40 marathon to win the Iron­man World Cham­pi­onship, Pa­trick Lange pulls out all the stops, wear­ing the same shoes many of Canada’s elite road run­ners choose for 5K and 10K road races. That’s a trib­ute to how much the in­dus­try has man­aged to pack even the light­est shoes with in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy the pro­vides enough sup­port, cush­ion­ing and com­fort for even the hard­est marathon ef­forts our sport can throw out.

That doesn’t mean that ev­ery triath­lete should be look­ing for a fullfledged rac­ing flat as their shoe of choice. What it does mean is that thanks to the huge choice avail­able to run­ners and triath­letes th­ese days, it shouldn’t be hard to come up with a shoe that pro­vides the right blend of sup­port, cush­ion­ing and flex­i­bil­ity to en­sure you’ll be com­fort­able out on the roads for train­ing and rac­ing. The key to find­ing that shoe? A rep­utable shoe store where ex­perts can guide you to some­thing that is best likely to meet your needs.
