My Running Shoes Are Too Tight!

by Alma

I just began running again.
I always quit it after a while and go back to the gym, but I'm really tired of going to the gym everyday and want to keep up my running now.
Anyway, my question is that I just bought new running shoes Nike Air Max 180's.
They said they would be good for my knees, but they make my toes a bit sore, does this happen initially with all running shoes?





It has happened with every shoe I have tried running in.
Thanks so much for your help!


Answer by Dominique:


Hi Alma,
Thanks for your question.
This is not a typical issue for this type of running shoe or for new shoes.
Can it be that your shoes are too tight?
Running shoes are supposed to be a half to a full size up from your normal size.

Also see the running shoe section for advice on buying running shoes.

If the running shoe size is not the problem, it might have to do with having to get used to the shoes (but I think it is the size!)...
