How the features of the modern running shoe came about, does running shoe segmentation or categorisation have a place in today’s running shoe landscape, reducing injury and preventing injury through running footwear. The role of maximalist and minimalist footwear, knowing when to replace your current running shoe, knowing whether to trial another pair of running shoes and of course selecting the best shoe for you.
