What to consider when choosing the best running shoes
Unfortunately, choosing the best type of men's running shoes isn't as easy as selecting the most expensive or popular pair. Everyone has different sized feet and different workout routines, so what works for some won't necessarily work for others. To make sure you choose the best pair for you, here are some important factors to think about:
- Correct outsole: the type of surface you typically run on will determine the type of outsole that will be best for your feet. This is why hiking shoes (designed for traction) will have a different outsole on the bottom compared to boat shoes (designed for grip). Running shoes are designed for traction and stability, so choosing a pair that has a three-part TPR (Thermoplastic Rubber) outsole, like our Slazenger Raiders Men's Runners, is a great choice for long runs.
- Snug fit: although obvious, your footwear needs to fit relatively snug for a variety of reasons. If your shoes are too big, your feet will slide around when running and can risk serious injury. If your shoes are too tight, your feet can get unpleasant blisters and bruises. A simple way to ensure your shoes fit properly is to slip your index finger between your heel and the end of the shoe. If there's just enough space for it to feel snug - you're good to go.
- Good pronation: you'll see the word 'pronation' a lot with footwear, which refers to how your feet roll inwards for impact distribution each time your foot hits the ground when running. This is very important, as wearing a pair of running shoes with bad pronation can lead to injuries. An example of runners with good pronation is our Diadora Ego Men's Runners, which feature a raised heel that provides enhanced stability and support when running.
