Break In Your New Running Shoes Effectively

Having the right pair of running shoes is the most essential factor to consider for any casual or professional runner. Taking the proper steps in selecting and breaking in a new pair can make a big difference between a smooth run and an uncomfortable run which will give you blisters and foot pain.

The first thing you need to do is determine your foot type and choose the appropriate running shoe. Before you buy your choice, make sure to try them on. It is essential to break in the running shoes before buying them. Choose the pair that you like and walk them around the shoe store for half an hour to determine if these are the right pair for you. Don’t forget to wear the socks you usually wear in your runs.

Select the size with half an inch of space between your longest toe and the front of the shoe. If you run frequently, it is important that you invest in one of the best running shoes according to your foot type to avoid injuries. You can buy two pairs and rotate them on a regular basis to extend the life of each pair. Break in your new pair by at least 50 to 60 miles. You can break in effectively in your new running shoes by running at least on long run and add several shorter runs. If you intend to prepare for a marathon you need to break in your new pair of running shoes at least 2 to 3 weeks before the event.

It would be wisest to get your new pair of running shoes from a retailer with a resident running shoe specialist. These retailers can determine your foot type according to the height of your foot arch and your gait. They can also give you enough time to test the running shoes on a treadmill before you decide on buying them.
