Wear socks with your running shoes. If you do, your foot will come into direct contact with your shoes, possibly hurting your feet. Since the sock is not there to absorb moisture, this can also cause foot fungus to form. You need to wear some cotton socks and use foot powder in order to make sure your feet stay dry.
Stick to a budget. If you are on a budget for shoes, stick to it. Sometimes people overbuy during sales and it is easy to spend more than intended. Consider what you want and need, and keep it within your budget.
If you don’t know your shoe size, measure both feet. Many people have one foot that’s a bit larger or longer than the other. If that is the case, choose shoes that are right for the larger foot.
Determine your arch type prior to purchasing athletic shoes. To do so, put a little water on your feet and then apply pressure to a white sheet of paper. You can tell your arch type based on the wet and dry portions of the paper. If there is really no arch at all, you should see the outline of your entire foot. If you have a high arch, you won’t be able to see the middle. This can help you get a shoe that fits you comfortably.
Now you should be able to go to the shoe store and use these tips. Use them all, and you’ll find that shoe shopping soon becomes second nature. Soon you’ll have the right pair of shoes for you.
