If you're a runner, the best running shoe to wear is the one that fits well and feels comfortable. There is nothing magical about any of the assortment of new-fangled running shoes on the market today (by the way, the expense for most of these shoes is ridiculous). No shoe can honestly guarantee that it will prevent injury or improve performance. If you're a sprinter, it would be better to settle for a shoe that's light weight (i.e., minimalist shoe). After purchasing a new shoe, be sure to break it in slowly in order to avoid injury. This means wearing the new shoes for short runs at a time and gradually increasing durations each week. This process will allow your body (i.e., feet, knees, hips, etc.) to adapt to the new running shoe.
