Shoes are the most crucial element in running.No matter how impressive your physical abilities may be, if your shoes aren't comfortable and suited to your body type, you're in for a rough ride.

Finding the right shoe is a key to successful sports practice. It ensures enjoyment and, more importantly, helps prevent injuries. Conversely, exercising with poorly fitted or chosen shoes is a surefire way to demotivate yourself.

How to choose your running shoes?

Several factors come into play when choosing your pair of running shoes, including

  • Training frequency: If you train 1 to 3 times per week, we recommend opting for shoes that can handle at least 30 kilometers per week. For more than three sessions a week, prefer shoes designed for at least 50 kilometers per week. If you're training for high-level competitions like marathons, go for dynamic, all-distance shoes without hesitation.
  • Runner's build: Your choice should also consider your build. The heavier you are, the more you should focus on the cushioning of the soles to prevent injuries and joint pain. Remember, a high price doesn't necessarily mean effective cushioning.
  • Shape of the shoe's upper: Each brand designs different uppers. Depending on your needs and desires, choose a thin, wide, or substantial upper to ensure the greatest comfort.
  • Shape of your foot: To identify the shape of your arch, simply wet your feet and stand on a colored sheet.

Are there running shoes suitable for all distances?

If you're accustomed to training over both short and long distances, on roads or marked trails, we recommend opting for versatile models, such as the Brooks Ghost 15 and the Nike Vaporfly 3.

Whatever model you choose, take advantage of the running sales on i-Run to run with quality shoes at affordable prices.

Finding your stride

With about 800 strides per kilometer, it's crucial to choose your shoes based on your stride type. Ignoring this criterion can overburden your joints, risking disabling injuries. Therefore, it's important to know whether you have a neutral (also called universal), pronating, or supinating stride.

Explanation: It's easy to identify your stride; just look at the most worn parts of your old shoes, if you have any.

  • Neutral stride: If your shoes are worn at the front of the foot, you have a neutral stride.
  • Pronating stride: If the wear is on the inside of the foot, your stride is likely pronating.
  • Supinating stride: If, on the other hand, the outer part of your sole is worn, you belong to the minority of runners with a supinating stride.
