Gear up for running
Knowing all the intricacies of running products is not easy. We want to ensure that you purchase the right thing for your running style. Below is a simplified layout of the important elements for every level of runner.
Choosing the right shoe
Each running style is different and so an appropriate shoe for you is important. The right shoe can make all the difference.

Choosing the right Drop
The height difference between your heel and toes is called the drop. The right drop for you will depend of your foot strike (do you land on you heel, mid foot or forefoot) and personal preferences. Buy 2 pairs and test them at home!
