Buying new running shoes: Before or after a run?

When buying new running shoes, is it best to try them on just like buying any other shoes, or is it better to try them on shortly after a run while your feet are slightly larger?


I am sure someone already asked but I am trying to find out what is the avergate time for a 5 mile run?

Certainly after.always want your running shoe to accommodate swelling. Not necessarily after running, but maybe towards the end of the day.

Is anyone running the Miami Marathon next wee?

After. That way, your feet will have room to expand, rather than being squished up in shoes that fit only when your feet aren't swollen.

Happy trotting! :-)

Help me train for the mile!!?

it makes more sense to try on a new pair after running when your feet are slightly swelling

Does jogging in cold weather affect your performance?

I run lots of marathons. I punish my shoes all the time, so I go through a lot of shoes. In all that time, I never considered whether I should buy new running shoes before and after a run. I just buy them whenever I go to the store.

If you run more than 15 miles, your feet may swell up to an entire size or size and a half up. So, marathon runners usually wear shoes that are a little roomy. If you don't belong to that category, there is no need to worry about how the "swollen-ness" of your feet may affect the sizing of your shoes..
