SAN JOSE, CA - Testing the best running shoes available to consumers, the Fortius Media Group, LLC, 2014 Spring Shoe Review gives runners and walkers of all levels the knowledge they need to start their search for the perfect shoe.

"Runners are very lucky. There is very little equipment that is needed. For the past two decades, the partners of Fortius Media Group have relied on Cregg Weinmann, the  footwear reviewer, and his team, to suggest the finest running footwear available. Our reviews are now available daily, via social media, on digital and in print. The Spring and Fall Shoe Reviews have always been our largest, although Cregg reviews on a monthly basis around the year. As always, we suggest that the five million runners and walkers who read our reviews make their purchases in their local running store.

Evaluation data is entered into a software system developed by Cregg Weinmann, the Fortius Media Group's footwear reviewer, to decide a winner in each category.
