When most people think of workout “gear,” it is relatively simple and straightforward. You need…

workout clothes,
headphones,
a music player,
a water bottle and
a pair of running shoes.

Sounds simple enough right? When it comes to running shoes, though, you need to remember you need to get good quality shoes built for the type of activity you are doing. Plus you need to ensure you are changing your shoes often enough, so they are providing the cushioning and support you need.
