Finding the right running shoes can be a real task at times. There are so many factors that need to be taken into consideration when selecting your footwear. For example, as a trail runner, I would never select a flat soled running shoe as I need one with proper grips and studs that will keep me moving, balanced and stable as I work my way through the mud, rocks and changing terrain. Not only should you consider the type of runner you are, but you must also consider how you move, your foot strike, weight, body composition and foot shape. So, just because you’re best friend found her ideal pair of running shoes, doesn’t mean they are going to be ideal for you too.

Despite it’s minimalist design, the Downshifter 7 is not only super versatile but they are also made of flexible, breathable material which help to keep your feet cool and comfortable as you run.
