Issues: Sneakers that look great with jeans are not what you want to slip on for a run. Everyday sneakers offer minimal support, cushioning, and traction. The same goes for shoes designed for walking, basketball, cross-training, or hiking.
Do wear: When buying sneakers, look at brands and styles specifically designed for runners. Professionals at running stores will be able to suggest shoes based on the width of your foot, pronation, how much you run, the surface you run on, and where your foot strikes. A perfect fitting sneaker can help prevent shin splints, knee pain, and blisters.
