How to Choose the Right Running Shoe

Disclaimer: Always consult your physician before beginning any exercise program. 

Neutral shoes. Motion-control shoes. Zero-drop shoes. Stability shoes. No shoes? You now have a dizzying array of running shoes to choose from. On one hand, it's great because you can find a shoe that fits your body in a way shoes just didn't even a decade ago. On the other hand, how do you even decide? With help from those who do this every day. We talked to some of our sports medicine doctors and the manager of a specialty running shoe store to help you dig through all the options.
