Running couldn't be easier: it's accessible to everyone, anywhere, anytime! Whether you're at the gym on a treadmill, out in the countryside on dirt tracks or in adventurous mode in the mountains...

But if you're still a little apprehensive before you take the plunge, we've put together the ultimate guide to essential running accessories.
Tip no. 1
A good fit!
Shoes are the essential accessory for every runner. So it's crucial to choose sneakers that offer good cushioning, adequate support and a comfortable fit.
You'll be able to choose between different models depending on your running style, your stride and the type of terrain you run on. Also consider your pronation (the way your foot rolls inwards or outwards when running), as well as your morphology to choose the right shoes for you.
Don't hesitate to ask an expert directly in-store for the most appropriate advice, and invest more than you should - your knees and feet will thank you.
And in his socks too!
Often overlooked by novices, socks play an important role in comfort and blister prevention.
Choose running socks made from blister-resistant materials such as polyester or nylon, which provide good arch support. Support socks can also be very useful when jogging: they limit muscle fatigue, facilitate blood circulation and prevent injuries.
PS: Avoid cotton socks, which tend to retain moisture.
The must-have for every runner!
