preview for How To Find The Best Fit For Your Running Shoes

Because I’ve been fitting wear-testers and staff for new running shoes for so many years, I know that many runners wear a shoe that’s too small for their foot. But, they insist it fits because the number on the box matches what size they typically wear.

My advice: Ignore the number on the box. I trick our wear-testers by giving them just the shoe, not the box, when I think they may benefit from going up a half size. You can find the right fit by visiting your local running shop and trying on multiple pairs—or by taking advantage of generous return policies from internet sellers.
