Your shoes must fit to your foot type, First what type of arch do you have?
MOTION CONTROL (LOW TO FLAT ARCHES)
Recommended for runners with low arches who are moderate to severe overpronators and who need maximum rearfoot control and extra support on the medial (arch) side of their shoes. Also best suited for bigger runners who need plenty of support and durability.
Suggested Motion Control Shoes:
• Brooks Beast
• Brooks Ariel
• Brooks Addiction
• Mizuno Alchemy 9
STABILITY (LOW TO NORMAL ARCHES)
Recommended for runners who are mild to moderate overpronators and who generally have low to normal arches. These runners tend to need a shoe with a combination of good support and midsole cushioning.
Suggested Stability Shoes:
• Brooks Adrenaline 10
• Mizuno Nirvana 6
• Mizuno Inspire 6
• New Balance 1225
• New Balance 760
• Nike Equalon+ 3
• Nike Structure+ 13
• Saucony Guide 2
• Saucony Omni 8
CUSHIONED (NEUTRAL - NORMAL TO HIGH ARCHES)
Recommended for runners who need maximum midsole cushioning and minimum medial support. These shoes are best for biomechanically efficient runners (minimum pronation) and midfoot or forefoot strikers with high or normal arches.
Suggested Neutral Shoes:
• Brooks Glycerin 7
• Mizuno Wave Rider 13
• New Balance 1064
• Nike Vomero+ 4
• Nike LunarGlide+
• Nike Pegasus+ 26
• Saucony Ride 2
Recommended either for racing or, if you're biomechanically efficient, for training. They have varying degrees of support and cushioning, but what characterizes them is that they're generally lighter (most weigh around or under 10 ounces) and have a snug fit.
Please ask our experienced staff about what performance or racing shoe in our stock that is right for you.
Spikes are best suited for runners doing speed workouts on soft surfaces or competing in track or cross country races. These shoes built low to the ground with a glove like fit and are designed for speed. They offer no support and very little impact protection.
You should wear racing shoes if you have a biomechanically efficient stride, don't have any current injuries, and want an exceptionally fast, lightweight shoe for races. Many runners use performance training shoes or their regular training shoes for races.
You should wear trail shoes if you are a runner who frequently runs off-road, and are looking for rugged shoes with great outsole traction and some weather- and water-resistant qualities. Many trail shoes are built low-to-the-ground for added stability on rough trails.
