"Whether you rarely jog, run a couple of days each week or regularly race competitively on pavement or trails, a key to enjoying – and enduring – the sport is establishing and maintaining foot health practices, which include periodic shoe-fitting and proper selection. As a podiatrist and avid runner, I’m very aware of the importance of this often overlooked aspect of the sport and its role in helping people enjoy and benefit from it long-term," says podiatrist Jeffrey R. Pentek, DPM

"Although it’s not rocket science, there are a few important things to look for when selecting a good pair of supportive running shoes. They include: When you bend a running shoe from front to back, it should only bend at the ball of the foot. The midfoot and hindfoot should be firm. Heel counters on the back of running shoes should also be firm to prevent ankles from rolling in or out. And twisting running shoes with your hands should not allow for a lot of bending. You do not want very flexible shoes since this tends to put greater stress on feet," says Dr. Pentek.
