The Running Shoe Prescription
Don't know which running shoe to buy? This article published in the January 2005 issue of Physician and Sports Medicine titled The Running Shoe Prescription does a great job of explaining just about everything you need to know.
If you are lucky enough to live in a community with a good running shoe store, (Striders Specialty Running Store here in Layton, Utah has the best customer service I've seen and offers a free computerized foot and gait analysis) you should always go there to make your purchase.
As you become more familiar with the type of shoes that work for you and you know your size, you might be able to save some money by shopping online.
Another excellent source for help picking out shoes is Road RunnerSports. If you find a shoe you think may be for you, I would always check the runner's reviews here first.
