Best shoes for Men with lighter builds

Being light can certainly help with running. Not only does it mean less weight to propel forward, it reduces the risk of injury and cuts down the pounding in your shoes. But not every running shoe is meant for light runners. Clunky shoes meant for bigger "clydesdale" runners aren't perfect for lighter runners, nor are shoes that run super wide. That's why it's so important to know what shoe type fits your body type.
