Saucony: Having the right pair of shoes can make a huge difference in workouts. Saucony developed an online quiz to help you make a decision on what shoe to purchase based on your run or what kind of surface you will mainly run on, how many miles you’re shooting for each week, how you like your landings, weather firm, moderately cushioned, or plush, and how much stability you need. From there, they can recommend a shoe for you. It’s recommended you retire your running shoes between 300-500 miles, so if you’re approaching that number, add this to your wish list!
