Top 5 best, affordable and durable running shoes

Choosing a pair of running shoes requires careful consideration. You will likely need time to find the right shoe to fit your feet precisely among the dozens of brands and styles on the market. Stringers Sports Store offers a wide variety of running shoes from top brands such as Brooks and Mizuno. 

Running shoes, also known as performance shoes, provide more protection than most other types of footwear for running and exercise. For example, ASICS running shoes from Stringer Sports Store provide midsole protection, which allows the shoe to absorb more impact from your run. As a result of the added support and stability, your feet are better protected from over-pronation, which occurs when your foot rolls inwards while you run. By tilting the lower leg inward, the misalignment of your knee is reduced. In addition to shin splints and plantar fasciitis, overpronation can result in bunions and other foot problems. 

Consequently, if your running shoes have more cushioning, you will need to replace them more often. These sports shoes protect your feet’ arches, an essential feature for people with flat feet. However, it is possible to benefit from arch support even if you have high arches.

So, why are some running shoes better than others? Ultimately, it’s a matter of personal preference. There is no one best running shoe for all runners, no matter what anyone says. Putting your shoes on should feel comfortable right away, and they should last for several hundred kilometres of walking or running.

There’s no better place to start your running journey than with these top 5 affordable and durable models, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned marathoner:
