Best Running Shoes to Buy in 2023.

The most important part of your running kit is your shoes, so choose wisely as the perfect running shoes can see you doing over 500 miles before you need to consider changing them.  If you are an experienced runner or a total novice we can help you choose the best running shoes for you.

It can be difficult to find a shoe that exactly matches your requirements, so we explain below the main features you need to look out for. Your budget also has an impact of the choice of shoe, so we have selected shoes from different price brackets to help you make your choice.

How to choose the best running shoes for yourself.

What running surface are you running on?

You will need to consider the type of running surface you usually run on.  Is it uneven terrain such as track and field or is it track and road running?  If it is the latter you would not usually choose a shoe with a lot of traction in the sole.  However if you are off road running you need a shoe with plenty of grip and ankle support.

What durability should I expect?

the general rule of thumb is that a running shoe should be capable of at least 500 miles of use. This does not mean the shoe will be falling apart at this stage. It just means that the shoe would be well worn in and may not offer the support and traction over this time than a newer shoe would offer.


Comfort is key when choosing your shoe as you will be subjecting it to a lot of physical abuse, so it is very important to ensure the shoe fits well to protect your feet.


As with most things you buy, you generally get what you pay for.  Go for the best you can afford.  Whilst look of the shoe is important it is best to choose a shoe that will serve you well physically.
