Running is a great way to keep the body in good health. Many people take on running as a profession and even as a simple hobby. For the novice runner or for someone embarking on running for the first time, the question of proper gear always immediately comes up.

Many shoe companies have various running shoe lines. They aim to provide foot gear for all feet types and needs. Many companies have been coming out with their own running shoes for wide feet like Nike, Brooks, Asics, New Balance, Mizuno, Saucony, and others. Prices range from $50 USD to $120 USD.

Those with wide feet and who are neutral runners may get regular running shoes which provide the normal type of cushioning and support. Neutral runners don’t have a lot of problems with their footwork and rarely require specialized running shoes.

Those however with wide feet and who are overpronators may need to get a specialized kind of running shoes. Heavy overpronators have too much unnecessary foot work and foot roll that shoes which give motion control are often recommended. Added cushioning and insoles may also be prescribed to further add stability, control, and comfort. Expect to spend a little more for these added features.

Before buying your first pair of running shoes, seek the advice and recommendation of professionals and experts, most especially if your feet do not fall into the normal arch, size, and biomechanics category. If you can afford, go to a real athlete shoe store, they have knowledgeable staff that can assist you in your purchase.

Be on the lookout for shoe sales, they are often scheduled throughout the year. Save up on your next pair even though the current one is still in good condition. If you are going to make running a regular practice, you will need a spare on hand.
