  • Know Your Shoe Size

Your feet determine which shoe is right for you. If you have a wide foot, buying a narrow shoe thinking it will loosen out later, doesn’t make any sense. Always determine your shoe size before making the purchase. If your shoe size is not available then go for a one size large because your feet expands while working out.

  • Stability & Support

Always look for a shoe that has a breathable material and provides support to your feet.Branded shoes come with cushioned sole, which provides your feet some comfort and support. Never compromise with the comfort.

  • Flexibility

Flexibility in shoes is very much required while working out, especially at the forefoot. Training shoes should bend approximately at the same point where your forefoot bends.

  • Arch

Determine if you have high arched or flat foot. If you have normal to high arched foot, buy a cushioned sole. People with flat foot should go for stability and neutral shoe. This will keep your feet in normal position and you will not feel pain on your feet after the training session.

  • Grip / Traction

A good training shoe should have amazing grip. You don’t want to slip while running or slide off the treadmill. Training shoes have more grip than walking shoes. You must feel as the shoes are holding onto the ground.


These were some points which you have to keep in mind before buying training shoes.


I hope these tips will help you choose the right shoes…
