When it comes to finding a new pair of shoes to wear, runners can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of options available to them. However, it may not be necessary to overthink the decision after all. A current school of thought suggests that instead of putting a lot of weight behind factors like cushioning, stability, and one’s foot type when looking for new running shoes, the best option might be to go with whatever design one finds to be most comfortable.

Though runners may be accustomed to searching for footwear that restricts how far inward or outward the foot rolls, recent studies have shown that the correlation between these types of shoes and the injury rate isn’t as strong as it was previously thought to be. However, biomechanical factors and shoe design are still important things to consider, especially if you have an unusual foot type.

Finding the right type of running shoes to wear isn’t that hard if you know what to look for. For advice about selecting a pair of running footwear, visit chiropodist Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics. Hardy can evaluate your foot type and teach you what factors to consider before you make your choice.  

Choosing the Right Running Shoes for Your Foot Type

Running is a physical activity although fun, can put a lot of stress on the joints, bones and ligaments of the body. Injury and stress on the foot can be an important factor on which kind of shoe you’re wearing. Running shoes should be worn based on your foot type. It is important to find out what fits you based on cushioning, stability and motion.

Determining your type

Speak with a shoe specialist or retail professional to see what your foot type is. They will be able to identify and measure your arch type, stride and gait.

Running Mechanics

When you are running or walking in your shoes, every step determines how your foot is landing. Pronation is the natural rolling of your ankle from outside to inside during foot strike.

Pronation is a correct form of walking or running. It helps absorb shock and store energy from your lower extremities.
