How to choose Correct Running Shoes?Posted on 26 Nov 19:10
Have you ever wonder what kind of running shoes is right for you and how to choose the correct running shoe?
You will first need to find out your foot type.
1) What is my foot type?
In order to find out your foot type, the simplest way is to conduct the wet foot test. Simply wet the bottom of your feet and step onto a piece of newspaper or the floor. Observe the foot print that you leaves on the newspaper or floor.
There are 3 different foot types. 1) The Neutral Feet 2) Flat Feet 3) High-arched Feet.
- Neutral Feet
Your footprint will have a noticeable curve inward, but not by more than 3/4 of an inch.
This is the most common type of foot, you can choose from a wide variety of running shoes, including ones made for neutral runners or those with slightly flat-footed or high-arched feet. Don't pick running shoes that have a lot of stability or motion control.
- Flat Feet
If you're flat-footed, you're most likely an overpronator, which means that the heels of your feet roll inward when you run. Being a overpronator, you will probably need a running shoe that maintains your stability. Look for the word "stability" on the box of running shoes you are considering. The "stability" shoes will provide stability to your overproning running style.
- High-arched Feet
