Best Running Shoes for Beginners
If you’re new to running, picking the right shoes can be a bit daunting. After all, there are so many brands with so many models — all of which seem to hammer home that they’re the best of the best. The thing is, a good pair of running shoes not only aligns with your body — your weight, foot shape and so on — but it also aligns with your experience level and fitness goals. When it comes to picking shoes for a beginner, we recommend putting comfort first.

Think of it this way: If ill-fitting running shoes cause blisters or soreness, you’re less likely to keep running. For this reason we recommend New Balance Fresh Foam 880v10, which comes in what’s considered women’s sizing as well as what’s considered men’s sizing. We love this pair of New Balance shoes because they’re designed heel to toe with comfort in mind. For example, the Fresh Foam midsole delivers an ultra-cushioned, lightweight feel, while other elements of the shoe are designed to provide stretch, support and rebound where appropriate. Needless to say, breaking these in won’t feel like a chore.
