When looking for a running shoe, it’s best to go to a specialty running store where they can do a proper gait analysis. From there, they will be able to tell you what type of shoe will be best for your style of running. They will be able to tell you if you are a pronator, supinator, or if you are a neutral runner. And based on that information, you will begin to find the right shoe for your foot.
