The more expensive running shoes don't prevent injuries or make you run faster. That's the bottom line in a report in the journal of the Danish Medical Association. It's based on a survey of seven-thousand runners conducted by the United States Department of Defense. Researchers concluded that expensive running shoes are not any more effective than cheap ones. In fact, it showed that cheaper running shoes often have a better cushion for your feet than the shoes that wear an expensive name. Overall, the survey found the same thing your mom probably told you once, and that is to make sure your shoes fit well and are comfortable.
