THERE ARE HUGE DIFFERENCES IN RUNNING SHOES
The main difference you will see visually are the variety of coordinated color options…JUST KIDDING.
When we have a brand new camper head out to a professional shoe store for a pair of shoes (Foot Pursuit, Road Runner or Future Track) we prepare the owners of those stores to PLEASE fit our clients properly. We actually visit an make eye contact because it’s THAT important!
We also know that sometimes you just won’t listen to us (or them) when it comes to clashing with your cute outfits!
For the love of Pete: get the right shoe figured out FIRST then PICK ONE of the color options that exist on planet earth right that second.
The number one reason for ignoring this sage advice: “they didn’t have the colors I wanted.”
I get it though.
Who wants to look like a closet that has been through a tornado of color?
There are a few very important parts to a safe, injury-free (or reduced) and productive camp that have to do with apparel.
#1 – The correct shoe for your body
#2 – A SPORTS BRA for the gals, no matter what size, HIGH IMPACT READY
#3 – COMPRESSION SHORTS for the fellas
Looking OBNOXIOUS could actually save your life.
We WANT people to see you on the road! Wearing bright and obnoxious colors to camp is a way to BE NOTICED ON THE ROAD.
Steer clear of colors that blend into the environment whenever possible.
-300-500 miles (a full time camper will run about 3 miles average a day on our program) so a brand new pair of shoes can last 2 to 3 camps.
Don’t wear your camp shoes for bopping around in unless you have multiple pairs.
The compression portion of the shoe needs to refill with air and when you leave them alone it gives that a chance to replenish and cushion up!
