3 Things to Know About Buying Sneakers

When it comes to choosing sneakers, you have an endless variety of styles to pick from. There are many different types from sneakers that will help you stay active to ones that simply exist to make you look good. You can find many new and vintage sneakers on eBay that range in style from fashion to fitness or a blend of both.

What types of running shoes are there?

There are several types of running shoes from brands like Adidas, Reebok, and Nike, and they all have an impact on how your feet will feel as you're running. Those types include:

  • Neutral shoes: Neutral running shoes are perfect for neutral runners (people whose feet tend to roll outward as they run) due to the fact that they have some shock absorption as well as side-arch support.
  • Super-cushioned sneakers: These type of shoes have more cushioning, often as much as 50% more than traditional shoes, making them perfect for people who need extra shock absorption for their joints.
  • Stability sneakers: These types of shoes can be helpful for people who have mild to moderate overpronation, which is the tendency to roll your feet inward as you run.
What to look for when choosing sneakers

When choosing affordable sneakers on eBay, there are several key features that you should consider. Those features include:

  • Nylon and nylon mesh: Look for sneakers that have these materials as they are useful for reducing the weight of the shoe and allowing for airflow.
  • Waterproof uppers: Some shoes have waterproof uppers so that moisture is blocked from entering your shoes while you're running, allowing your feet to stay dry and breathe easily.
  • TPU overlays: These overlays are placed over the shoe panels, helping you resist abrasions while enhancing your sneaker's durability and its ability to remain stable.
  • High- or low-tops: Low-tops are a type of shoe that doesn't cover the ankle. They're usually lightweight and easy to wear, so people tend to wear them in the summertime. People who choose low-tops generally like them because they allow you to get a lot more speed and lift since nothing is restraining the ankle. High-top sneakers, on the other hand, give you extra ankle support.
How do you choose a shoe size?

The secret to getting the right size is to measure your feet at the end of the day. That's when your feet are the most swollen, giving you an accurate read of your foot size at its largest point. Then compare those measurements to the ones provided for the shoes that you're considering.
