Running shoe width is critical as is the size

One of my runners in my class described her issue with her foot. She says the neuroma is painful and foot is numbing during and after running. One, she was wearing a running shoe size the same as her dress shoes. Second, her foot is narrow which she got narrow running shoe. As you run, your foot swells up length and width. This wear the running shoe width is critical as is the size. With neuroma and bunions, buying running shoe a little wider toe box gives the foot more room and less pain. When at a running shoe store explain your issue when you run, and explain any foot issues. There are running shoes made with narrow heel with wider toe box.

I noticed through the years of running, my feet have grown. Also women after pregnancy say their feet have grown. Actually, your arch has drop. Your arch, pronation, and running gate are just as important in the purchase. This were a good running shoe store is critical in buying your running shoes.  Your feet change throughout your life so will your running shoes.
