Running shoes are typically judged by their cushioning and comfort level alone, they don’t always get judged by their more advanced features. There are areas of the shoe of importance that are often overlooked like the upper, midsole and outsole. The durability of the shoe usually depends on the material used, construction and protection features. Many shoes offer toe bumpers, a plastic or more often rubber material that surrounds the toe of the shoe in order to both protect the weaker material used across the upper and to also protect the toes of the foot. The toe bumper (as it is often called) is placed on the area of the shoe that is bumped most frequently (hence its name). Many runners also offer reinforced construction on ‘critical areas’ which are areas of the shoe that face the most interaction with harder and sharper surfaces, as well as areas that are also bumped more frequently causing more wear and tear than lesser bumped areas of the shoe. The durability of a running shoe is very important, especially when investing in a more expensive running shoe. The value of the product and its justification for cost is also affected by the shoe’s durability. This is why reviews such as this one are so important to read before investing in a running shoe, we look at ratings and reviews in order to give an idea of the majority of consumers thought of the product and to help determine whether the shoe is worth the cost.
