If you're an aspiring runner, don't buy anything on purpose. When your distance approaches 25 km. or your average pace starts to go out for 5 minutes per 1 km. , then it already makes sense to be puzzled by special shoes. Shoes are important, but not in terms of cushioning as they usually say. There are many individual characteristics and different types of feet, different running techniques, there are particular weather conditions. If you are a "teapot", and the question speaks about this, then just start with what is. The most common running shoes meet the basic requirements. If in the future you feel discomfort, you should start looking for something else. I recommend thinking less about depreciation. This is a serious misconception that can lead to injury. With the correct running technique, no special cushioning is needed, but the whole problem is that the correct technique presupposes a high level of preparedness of the ligaments, to which the average person needs to go for years. Don't forget about rest and recovery.
If you run short distances, then run calmly in ordinary sneakers. But if your workouts exceed 30 km per week, then buying a professional cross will have to be puzzled to maintain health. Especially knees. The trick of such sneakers in shock absorption. The gel in the toe or heel of the shoe reduces the load on the spine and knees, makes the landing soft.
Marketers are happy to play with the word "running". And usually this word on the price tag next to the word "sneakers" adds 2000 rubles to the price. Therefore, think about whether it is worth spending the money.
PS The price tag for a good running shoe starts at $ 5. Sneakers need to be changed every 500-600 km, because the amortization is "deflated". If a person is overweight or only runs on asphalt, then they need to be changed every 400-500 km.
