Running Shoes : Question and Answer

 

Q:

What is the average weight of a men's running shoe?

A:

There really isn't an average weight for a running shoe because shoes will vary greatly depending on their size and construction. Minimalist or lightweight shoes will range in weight from as little as 5 ounces to nearly 10 ounces. As you add more cushioning and support however, the weight of the shoe will increase. Stability shoes will range from 10 - 13 ounces, while motion control shoes can be even heavier. While lighter shoes will obviously help to increase your overall speed, it is still very important to find the right balance between weight and the amount of cushioning and support your foot needs in order to avoid injury.
