Training vs. Running Shoes: Emily Hutchins I NRC Tips in Stride I Nike


Hi, I’m Emily Hutchins, Nike Run Club Coach and Nike
Master Trainer from Chicago. So, look, while there are a lot
of different options out there when it comes to shoes, it’s important that you
understand the difference between a running shoe and
a training shoe. So, a running shoe, meant
for linear movement, meant to be cushioned,
meant to be comfortable, meant to support you in a straight line
as you’re logging miles on the road. Your training shoe is meant
for multidirectional movement in the gym doing things
like lounges, and squats, and lateral movement to keep you
safe on the training floor. It’s important for the complete runner to
understand the benefits of training shoe and the benefits of a running shoe because they are both two
completely different things, but both go hand in hand when it comes to being a strong,
efficient, fast runner.

  1. 0:42 they messed up, she’s doing lateral movements in the running shoe and they labeled it as the training shoe

  2. The “training shoe” looks like it would be horrendous for lateral stability or any stability for that matter.
