IL PODIATRIST DISCUSSES MEANING OF WEAR PATTERNS ON OLD RUNNING SHOES

PODIATRIST, DR. KATHERINE DUX, STATES, "DEPENDING ON YOUR FOOT TYPE AND RUNNING STYLES, SOME SHOES MAY WORK BETTER FOR YOU THAN SOMEONE ELSE.  MANY  SPECIALITY RUNNING STORES WILL RECORD YOU RUNNING AND HELP YOU FIND THE BEST SHOES.  BUT IF YOU DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THAT IT IS BETTER THAT YOU BRING OR WEAR YOUR OLD GYM SHOES."

PODIATRIST DUX STATES, "THE SALES ASSOCIATE WILL LOOK FOR EXCESSIVE WEAR IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE SHOE.  WEAR ON THE INSIDE OF THE SHOE INDICATES OVERPRONATION OR A FLAT FOOT.  THESE RUNNERS BENEFIT FROM MOTION-CONTROL SHOES, WHICH ABSORB  THE IMPACT ALONG THE INSIDE OF THE FOOT.  EXCESSIVE WEAR ON TH OUTSIDE OF THE SHOE INDICATES UNDERPRONATION.  THESE RUNNERS DO WELL WITH A CUSHION SHOE.  UNIFORM WEAR ACROSS THE SOLE OF THE SHOE REFLECTS NORMAL WEAR.  THESE RUNNERS BENEFIT FROM A NEUTRAL OR STABILITY SHOE."
