Find your sole mate! - Best Running Shoes of the Season
So here's some quick tips while out looking for the perfect shoe. Opt for thick soles if you're buying trainers that you're going to be wearing for sport, jogging or long walks. The more you use them, the quicker the soles will wear away.
There's been a big movement recently towards eco-friendly footwear. Trainers such as the Adidas UltraBoost Parleys are made using recycled plastics, so indulge in a pair that helps you save the planet while looking good. Another quick tip: You might think you know your foot size, but feet change even in adulthood. If you're buying running shoes you should also get a gait analysis - a good shop will do this for you.
If you don't fancy running into someone with the same sneakers, grab a limited-edition pair and stay unique. Sites such as sneakerhead.com uperkicks.in are great for keeping tabs on the latest reveals.
