Here are 5 reasons to take the leap.
They're Good for Your Feet
Running shoes will take care of your feet just like your favourite pedicurist. Materials like breathable mesh and GORE-TEX waterproof membranes reduce friction, moisture and sweat. And that prevents things like blisters and athlete’s foot. So your feet stay as fit as the rest of you.
Your Feet Need Proper Support
There are different types of feet in the world. Some people have biomechanically normal feet, which has a normal arch that rolls inward and rolls outward when running. Some people have high arches or flat feet, which have a tendency to roll inward or outward too much during activity. If people with high arches or flat feet don’t wear shoes that are made for feet with this problem, it can result in pain and injury. Proper running shoes support different feet and work with your body to create the optimal running results.

They’re Environmentally Friendly
A good-quality pair of running shoes is the opposite of fast fashion. Durability is in the job description, so they’ll be with you km after km, adventure after adventure. So you can do good for the planet while you’re discovering it.
