How to choose a pair of running shoes.

The nice weather is here and it is the perfect time to get outside and go for a run!  Whether you are a new runner, returning to running or a long time runner, it is important that you choose shoes that work for your feet and will support you.   A lot of people think that all running shoes are equal, and often choose running shoes based on what colour they are or what company makes them.  The problem with selecting a shoe based on these methods is that you will find yourself wearing a poor quality shoe, which could potentially cause injuries to develop.

The attached video shows how to test a shoe by performing the three point test.  Whenever you are looking for a new running shoe, you should perform these easy tests to make sure that you are purchasing a shoe that is going to provide your foot with the stability it needs.  A good shoe helps to make every run great!
