BEGINNER 

For those who have just begun running, they are also known as "joggers". They practice jogging once or twice a week, not more than 3-4KM per day or 30min per day.

 

Product features that are recommended for beginner runners are:

 

Shoes: A basic shoe with a rubber or EVA sole. Good breathability and grip should go well. If weight is more compared to your height or beyond 80kg, we recommend shoes with a good cushioning. 

Apparel: A basic polyester t-shirt should be okay for your run unless you're looking for something that is sweat-absorbent, then you can try quick-dry t-shirts. 

Try to avoid cotton products as it holds sweat and doesn’t dry quickly.
