Running is the latest hobby exercise and if you want to join the gang, you first need to get the perfect pair of shoes. While they might feel comfortable when you are trying them at the store, they just might not feel right when you go running wearing them. Remember these things to get the best fit • Go shopping for shoes at the end of the day when your feet are normally a bit swollen, making them feel the largest. You will thus not go in for small shoes. • Leave some extra space at the toe since you might need it for a growing thumbnail. So the shoes should not be tight, but give you a snug fit. • Keep in mind your running style and the type of running you might want to do. Different shoes are designed for different types of feet, so the level of activity should determine your purchase.
