How should running shoes fit?
The best running shoe for you should feel like a natural extension of your foot that’s comfortable, snug, but never too tight. Ideally, your running shoe should fit with a ½ to a full thumb’s width of room between the front of the shoe and your big toe, leaving enough room to wiggle your toes freely without the shoes feeling loose.
How do you best wash running shoes?
Spot cleaning is the best option for cleaning your running shoes and encouraging longevity. Opt for dish soap, hot water, and a rag (or an old toothbrush if you’re dealing with stubborn debris) to spot clean mud and stains from your running shoes. Then, stuff your shoes with newspaper and let them air dry—position them in front of a fan for faster results.
How do I pick running shoes?
The process of finding the right running shoe is as unique as every runner. The best idea is to thoroughly research your options and determine what your unique fit needs might be. It also helps to evaluate how you will be using your running shoes. Do you plan to use them for a competitive edge on race day? Are you more interested in a supportive shoe for trail running? Filter your searches on our site to explore running shoes that prioritize stability, motion control, cushioning, and beyond.
What are the best running shoes for women?
Like most shoes, finding the best running shoe for your preferences will depend on unique factors like your foot, arches, goals, and stability needs. The best running shoe will offer the ideal balance of softness and stability, comfortable fit, and the preferred amount of cushioning for comfort and longevity.
How do you break-in running shoes?
The perfect-fit running shoe still might require a bit of a break-in period for optimal wear. Before you head off on any long runs, it might be beneficial to wear your shoes for shorter runs, activities around the house, and for low-impact running exercises to give them time to properly break-in. While this break-in period will likely be short, it’s best to allow a little time before lacing them up for a long run or a big race.
