Choosing a pair of running shoes can be a tall order — do you go with established brands? Do you pick something that feels light for your feet or heavy for shock absorption? Thankfully, Ryan Hess of The Loop Running Supply Company stopped by Studio 512 to give us his tips!
Most importantly, Ryan says, you need to go to someone who can watch you walk and jog as demonstration of a gait analysis. No specific brand or shape is going to work for everyone: some people’s ankles turn in, others out — and the pressure of your foot is unique, too.
The Loop will host Meet 3 of their Summer Track Series on July 19th. This is an “All Comers Meet” hosted by The Loop and Gilbert’s Gazelles. The profits from this event will go towards the rebuilding and sustaining of the Austin High track. This event is all about community. Ryan says, “Come one, come all!”
