It is often said that the best way to discover a city is to put on your walking shoes and get lost in the nooks and crannies. It is the best way to stumble upon quaint shops, learn about the locals and see a city. A better way to discover a city is to join a free walking tour which will take you through the nooks and crannies but with the benefit of learning about the history, myths and stories behind the streets you walk through. If you haven’t previously heard of free walking tours (where have you been), no, I just joke. So most cities around the world offer these guided tours on foot.

I finally managed to settle on a new pair of running shoes. It took me almost 3 months to settle on this pair and it was certainly worth the wait. We all have such unique feet and different running requirements that I don’t think that there is one best running shoe, but what I will try to do today is help you select a pair of running shoes that is suitable for YOUR feet. Where to start? I visited the Sweatshop (or you can visit any specialty sport shop) and did a foot assessment with one of their trained consultants.
