Buying new workout shoes? Get the right fit

If you're shopping for new athletic shoes, be sure to try on both shoes and wiggle your toes. If you don't have at least a half an inch (1.3 centimeters) between your longest toe and the end of the shoe, go up a size. Be sure the shoe is wide enough too. The side-to-side fit of the shoe should be snug, not tight.
