As a proud sponsor of the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon, we are excited to be able to share some tips and options for your training and big race day.
Today we are talking marathon running shoes. Unless you’re channeling your inner Zola Budd, you’re going to want to find the best shoe for your needs and running style.
We spent some time with Sports Scientist, Professor Ross Tucker and adidas’ Technical Expert, Caitlin Miles to give us the lowdown on finding the perfect pair.
Prof Tucker covers what to look for in a marathon running shoe: comfort, cushioning, how to test them in the store, levels of support and sizing. Caitlin shares a bit about the adidas range and shoe features.
Take their advice into consideration and find your marathon shoe sole mate!
