According to Podiatrist, Dr. Wayne Edwards, when choosing a pair of running shoes, ensure that they fit properly and feel comfortable. It is a myth that you need to go up one shoe size to ensure this comfort, half a shoe size is adaquate. People have a wide variety of foot shapes. Low-arched mobile feet need more support from the shoe and are grouped as stability and motion control shoes. Average-arched feet can be accommodated in most nuetral shoe designs. High-arched feet benifit from cushioning. It is recommended that serious runners go to a specialist running shop and have a video analysis in order for them to get the right shoe.
