Running stores are amazing places to not just get fitted properly for shoes, but to also connect with fellow runners.  I frequent my local running store, and if they don’t have something in stock, then I go to Amazon.  I want what is best for you and getting fitted properly is key.  If you are unable to stop in at your local running specialty shop for shoes or products, then I recommend you go online. The products listed below are links to Amazon and do provide a commission to me. This commission helps keep the show running.
