Not quite sure where to post this, but I want to get my active almost 7 year old running with me. He wants to try to do a 5k, and I think it is a brilliant idea! Is there a particular type of running shoes that I should look for?
My daughters participate in Girls on the Run which ends each year with a 5K and we found that just trying on different brands and styles of shoes was the best way to go. Just like me, they have personal preferences as to how they like their shoes to fit while running and they ended up with very different style shoes! I guess it all boils down to what feels best on his foot - maybe visit a local sporting goods sore and let him try on a few pairs to see what he feels most comfortable in?
