The Jalopnik Guide To Buying Racing Gear (For Men And Women)

We know what you’re thinking: You’re not running that much, why should you spend good money on new sneakers? If you’ve been working out in the same pair of tired kicks since college, it’s time for an upgrade—seriously. Starting a running routine with whatever is gathering dust in your closet sets you up for trouble: aches, pains, or even an injury.

Good running shoes that work for you are the single most important piece of gear. Your best best: go to a local running store, where an expert will analyze your foot, your gait, and your biomechanics, and steer you toward the best possible shoe for your individual needs. Yes, you’ll probably end up spending more money, but trust us when we say it’s worth it. Consider the extra dollars an investment toward a happy running future. Besides, you won’t save money if you wind up buying and hating a pair of shoes that don’t meet your needs. (Most local running shops have generous return policies. They want happy, healthy customers! Find your nearest one with our guide.)

All that said, if you really just want to buy a shoe and hit the road (or treadmill), we have a couple good bets. The New Balance Fresh Foam Zante V3 boasts a cult following thanks to its lightweight construction that’s still sturdy enough to handle long runs (read our full review).
