Tip & How-To about Clothing Accessories
What makes running shoes perfect for running activity.Why do runners buy shoes specifically for running? Running shoes and shoes that are made specifically for different sports such as basketball or cycling tend to have different shapes that cater to the specific activity that they are made for. Different types of motion put different stresses on your foot and ankles, and these are accounted for in the design of specific shoes. For example, cycling shoes tend to have a rigid bottom that is not particularly comfortable to walk around in but provide for a much more efficient transfer of energy from the foot to the pedal. Basketball shoes provide support for the ankle to account for making hard cuts and frequent jumping. While not always 100% necessary, getting a shoe for a specific sport can provide performance and/or safety benefits. Even amongst just running shoes, there are many different categories depending upon the type of running that you plan on doing.

Running shoes last roughly between 300-500 miles or between 4-6 months. These are rough estimates as there are several factors that contribute to the breakdown of your shoe, like how often you are running, what surface you are running on, and other factors like heat and weight.
