    Hi, I started to run this year and I think I got the wrong shoes. I should have read this article before. Normally, I suffer lots when I walk for long periods of time without a break because I have really flat feet. But this year I decided to run because I need to exercise and I prefer the outdoors, also because I discovered that running helps me to manage stress. It is like a therapy. However, I am not sure if I should consider getting other pair of shoes, perhaps more like the big lugs you mentioned for muddy pavement. The problem with my shoes at the moment is that they feel heavy and I feel pain quite quickly. I’m not sure if it is because I’m just new in this activity or if it is because of my shoes or flat feet. Would you recommend those inserts that go inside the shoes for people with flat feet? Thanks for the great information. I might download the running guide as well. Cheers

      Hi, Thais Gomez and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      I know exactly what you mean with the stress feeling when you run. It is an excellent way to a minimum the stress from a small time at least. When you run, and are on your own, just thinking about running or listing to music or book at the same time. You just rid of something, and it lasts for some time.

      But you should not feel a pain when you run! First feeling when I saw it was that you were in the wrong shoes as you think about it.

      For example, shoes should not feel heavy. It is such a vital thing in your running equipment that it should help you, not being a problem. On the same time, I know that many people I know have been in a problem with finding good shoes if they have flat feet. There are excellent shoes for flat, but the selection of it is not as much as in the most tradition shoes.

      I would think about the insert for people with flat feet because it is a much cheaper way than change the shoes.

      Good luck.

    I was in luck today that I find your article as a long time weight lifter I know the importance of the fit for my shoes depending on the type of workout I plan to do for that day, but of trail running shoes I was not sure. As I was planning to start with some running in the area close to my house what is still unspoiled land. I was checking out some shoes already. Now after reading your article I know I want the Hy Bride shoes. Thanks for explaining it well that makes my choice easy.

    I just bought Under Amour running shoes yesterday but don’t have some of the features mentioned in your article. It’s not water resistance but quite comfortable wearing it.  I haven’t tested it but do you think Under Amour shoes is fit running.

    My friends have recommended buying New Balance and they say it’s the best shoes for trail running and jogging but it quite expensive as compared to Under Amour.

    In your opinion, which brand is best for trail running or jogging and is not too expensive.

    Thank you for this insightful article and l know now what the factors to choose running shoes.

      Hello, Shui Hyen, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Under Armor and New Balance are leading brands. So I can recommend them highly. Very durable and comfortable.

      I have personally used Under Armour a lot last years, plus other brands, and it is one of my favorite. New Balance is it too, but I have been told from shops here that it is more popular with women than many other brands. I must admit I am not absolutely sure why, but think it has something to do with fashion as man women use it with a lot of different outfits.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Great article on what to look for when buying trail running shoes! I think these points/criteria can be applied to purchasing other types of shoes as well! I can certainly attest the fit is the most important aspect. I wore my mom’s shoes one day to walk the dogs and she wears several sizes smaller than me. Needless to say, I ended up damaging my big toe nail and had ro get a procedure done to prevent in grown nails! Was painful and expensive and easily avoidable. I loved the tip about taking into consideration water weight. Never thought of that!
