The ongoing search for the best shoe for each of us is a challenge and an opportunity to improve our running. As we mentioned last week, better times, less injury, less pain, and terrain specific characteristics are some of what we are looking for in the perfect shoe.
Is there a best shoe for you? Julie Cattell from Milestone Running, an independent running store in the San Diego area, will give us her perspective on what’s hot and what’s not from a warmer climate perspective. Many of the shoes we learn about from Julie are different models than those Bryan picked for us last week. Because we really can’t have too many shoes to pick from, can we?
With running shoes being so important to us, we have devoted two episodes to this essential subject. Our first shoe episode was from the northern climes in Toronto, Canada where Bryan Smith offered us his thoughts on best shoes for all 4 seasons since Toronto experiences all of the weather elements including snow, ice, humidity, cold and hot days.
Today’s episode takes us to the southern part of California where, except for rain and fog, runners here can appreciate and, pretty much count on, moderate temperatures and outdoor accessibility almost every day of the year.
