Pick the right running shoe!

Tags: , , , , ,


The right running shoe is necessity #1 for a any runner! The right running shoe counteracts injuries to their feet. The ‘correct’ running shoe varies for runners because of the person’s size, shape, weight, and above all, their step or stride. The right shoe is imperative for both the long distance runner to the occasional jogger!

It all begins with your feet!  As you begin constructing your run program it is very important to cater to the needs of your feet! Yes – our feet have needs just like our lungs, muscles, and heart!  If it’s a program to run a 5K race, or a full 26.2 mile marathon, your feet require a good, run-specific shoe. The question is: why do some individuals just purchase expensive shoes at a local shoe store considering how important it is to wear the ‘correct shoe’ rather than the ‘in-style shoe’?

The answer:  People don’t know.

Getting fitted for the right pair of running shoes at a running store (not a ‘mall store’ like FootLocker or Athlete’s Foot) will make you a healthier, more secure, and more efficient runner!

Warning: Do NOT buy and wear just any shoe that is expensive. Expensive does not mean it’s the right shoe for you – it just means it’s expensive.

Comfort is one thing – comfortable and run specific to your stride is more than just ‘comfort’ and style.

There are numerous sorts of runners, and the runner you are can be identified by asking a person to see and ‘analyze’  your gait or stride. Anyone can do this – but trust a sales associate a run-specific store. When they confirm what type of stride you take they can suggest the right shoe that fits your physical needs.

Most people will stroll into a shoe store and discover a shoe that looks great and feels comfortable. This ‘comfort fit’ may be all there is. Comfort.  Correct shoes may not cater to those who over-pronate or supinate.  These runners need a stable shoe, “stability”, or a shoe that is made for “motion control”. Yes, there are specific shoes to pick from that offer “stability” and “motion control”.

Once your feet fail you because of the poor shoe so will all your other workouts. A lot of run-specific shoe stores will let you ‘test drive’ the shoe to verify you feel good in them while you run, and will let you return them for the right fit and type of shoe. This is another added bonus at shopping at a run-specific shoe store! Try this at a Foot Locker or Athlete’s Foot. You can’t!

Don’t disregard the importance of protecting your feet! Treat them with care by finding the right shoe! The rest of your body will thank you!
