Many Types of Running Shoes to Consider

There are numerous types of running shoes, and it is helpful to determine what kind of running will be practiced before purchasing shoes. Running injuries may be prevented when shoes are rotated, which helps protect the feet. Research has shown it is best when running shoes are bought based on user criteria. These can include choosing the surface that will be run on, understanding your walking style or gait, and examining any running goals. There are several different types of running shoes. Trail shoes can provide extra protection while running in mud, snow, or rough terrain. Conversely, road shoes are designed for treadmills, tracks, and sidewalks. Important qualities to look for in purchasing running shoes involve adequate stability and motion control. If you are interested in buying running shoes, it is suggested that you consult with a podiatrist who can guide you toward choosing the correct pair.

You should always make sure your running shoes fit properly in order to avoid injury. For more information, contact Edward Fryman, DPM, FACFAOM from Seaford Foot Care Center. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Choosing the Right Running Shoe for Your Foot Type

Improper shoe sizing can cause a myriad of problems for your feet. Shoes that don’t fit you properly can lead to muscular imbalances in your body, which can result in foot, knee, and hip injuries.

Tips for Finding the Right Running Shoe

  • Make sure you have a thumb’s width of wiggle room between the end of your longest toe and the front of the shoe.
  • There should be little to no slipping at the heel
  • Don’t assume your size in one shoe brand will be your size in another
  • Do not lace up your shoes too tightly
  • Walk around in the store with your new shoes before you buy them
