How to Choose the Right Running Gear

What do you need to get started running? Begin your training with these essentials:

Running Shoes: Your running footwear is the most essential item for your workout. And you need a pair that's fitted to your unique needs as a runner. Select from neutral, stability and motion-control shoes, as well as shoes for distance running, off-road running and barefoot running. The latest running shoes come with a variety of performance-engineered features. Shop all running shoes to find your perfect pair.

Running Apparel: Dress for the season with both warm-weather and cold-weather running apparel. Layer up or down with jackets, long-sleeve tees and leggings. Running clothing is generally crafted from technical fabrics that keep you feeling fresh on the course. And many pieces are versatile for wear during other athletic activities.

Running Accessories: Every runner knows it's the details that matter. Stay hydrated with water bottles or use hair and wristbands to wick away sweat. And outdoor runners can stay safe with the help of reflective running vests and accessories.

There are a number of factors you need to consider before selecting the best running shoe for you. Always determine your gait cycle and foot arch types before selecting your shoe.

The latest wearable technology can give your run an edge. Keep pace with activity trackers, pedometers and GPS watches. Many of these running technology devices enable you to track your run, count calories and much more.
