Do you need an excuse to buy another pair of running shoes? Probably not, but we have got one for you anyway! It is said that every runner should have a minimum of two (or maybe five, ten, twenty…) pairs of running shoes in their arsenal and this isn’t just because running shoes are great! Thankfully there is some real science behind the benefits of regularly rotating your runners.

One of the main benefits of rotating running shoes is to reduce the risk of injury. Many running related injuries are caused by repetition and specifically repetitive movement. Running in the same shoe for every run means your body position will always be the same. This means the same stress is applied, in the same measure, to the same body parts, over and over again, which can eventually lead to injury! Not good.

However, mixing up the shoes you wear can help to avoid this. Wearing shoes with different amounts of cushioning, heel-to-toe drop, midsole height, and other key aspects of construction can vary the load of running enough from day-to-day to help keep those injuries at bay.


The Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports supports this theory. Researchers found that over a 22-week study, runners who rotated their shoes had a 39 percent lower incidence of injury than runners who did almost all of their mileage in the same shoe.

Everyone runs for different reason's, but show us a runner who doesn’t enjoy seeing their ability progress. Progression is achieved by consistent and varied training. This can include varying your speed, distance and running session type. Some people chose to do slow and easy runs, then the next day choose to do tempo pace or sprint efforts. But what does mixing up your shoes do to benefit your performance? Well, different shoes perform differently at slower or faster speeds and matching your shoe to your workout can drastically improve your performance and your enjoyment of that session.

One brand that really understands this is Nike and this is why their much-loved Zoom family has such a wide variety of models to choose from. Recently Nike have gone one step further in their quest to help runners avoid injury and introduced the React Infinity Run, which means that you now have the perfect shoe to match your mood, session and pace.

Below we have listed some of the key models in Nike’s Line up to help you better understand how they can be used to help your become a stronger runner and also avoid injury.

Brand new from Nike the React Infinity Run is a highly cushioned shoe that offers you stability and luxuriously smooth transitions. The React cushioning in the midsole provides a nice wide base for your strike and the subtle curvature of the sole helps you roll through from heel to toe more naturally. The shoe is finished with a new Flyknit upper for a supportive, lightweight and durable fit. 

Nike has done research that shows the Infinity can dramatically reduce the risk of injury when used in combination with sensible training and can be used by both pronators and neutral runners.
