This page covers everything you need to know about the running shoe fit you should be looking for.
  • What if my fit is almost just right? Agh, so frustrating! If you think you’ve met your new best friend of a running shoe, but the fit isn’t quite right, there are a few strategies you can try to dial in your ideal feel. Use these running shoe lacing tips to make minor tweaks that can tighten shoes with high insteps and roomy shoes with excess volume. The lace-locking method is a solid means for keeping annoying heel slippage at bay. Your socks affect your fit, too; chunky, thick socks will take up space if you’re looking for a tighter feel, while thin compression socks will lend you a bit more wiggle room—and maybe even some bunion relief. Fall in love with a shoe that lacks the proper arch support? We’ve been there, too. Slide your favorite orthotic insoles into your running shoes to prevent flat, collapsed arches that could end up causing pronation problems and a world of pain.
