Tips for Picking Running Shoes that Fit Properly

There are four basic tips you want to remember when trying on shoes to figure out which size fits you the best.

1. Have a thumbnail-length space between the front of the shoe and the end of your big toe.

2. Have little or no slipping at the heel.

3. Always try on both shoes.*

4. And try shoes on later in the day.**

*Your feet may be different sizes, and you want to be sure the shoe feels right on both feet.

**Your feet swell as the day goes on, so the shoes that seem right when you wake up may be too tight in the afternoon.
