How to find the best running gearNo matter what kind of running you do, there are some basic accessories that you’ll want to have on hand. Let’s start by talking about the most obvious one — a good pair of shoes. (Learn about the best running shoes on our blog!)
The most important thing to look for in a pair of running shoes is comfort. Sore feet can easily stop what would otherwise be a good run in its tracks. Whether you’re going on short runs or ...long runs, you should seek out a pair of shoes that matches your foot size and shape. Some of the best running shoes brands include New Balance, Brooks, Salomon, and Altra.
Next let’s talk clothing. If you’re going to be running outside, you’ll want to buy layers so that you can dress up or dress down according to the weather. Try to seek out water resistant materials that will allow you to get stuck in a downpour and still remain comfortable.
Running accessories are also important. At minimum, you’ll want a water bottle (hydration is key!), sunglasses, and maybe a backpack to carry your essentials. Depending on the climate you live in, you might also want some gear to keep you warm (like a toque). Some runners prefer to keep their water bottles in a belt for easy access while they’re on the move.
