How To Choose The Proper Running Shoe | E-Neighborhood Advisor



Ready to run off that huge Thanksgiving dinner
you just ate? Let’s talk shoes…

Choosing the right running shoe can make all
the difference in whether you stay healthy or
become injured running and also determine if
you will be comfortable or be in pain while
running.

Bargain shopping is the number one big-time
mistake made by most novice runners. Trust
me, you are not going to find a proper running
shoe at Walmart!

Thinking cheap will end up making you quit
running due to the sheer misery of having bad
shoes. Some of those who are more tenacious
may wait until they blow out their knee or have
major shin splints before they throw in the
towel.


With all the choices and high-tech shoes
available today, choosing the right pair of
running shoes for you can be an arduous task
at best. But here are some guidelines to help
you.

First you need to understand pronation, which
is rolling of the foot from heel to toe through the
foot strike. A proper or neutral pronation is
hitting the back side of the heel and up to ball
of your foot evenly across the front. This is how
your foot reduces the stress of impact.

If most of the shoe wear is:
 On the medial (inside) side then you
Overpronate

 On the lateral (outside) side then you
Underpronate

 Uniform across the forefoot then you
have a Neutral Stride

Using this knowledge will give you a good start
in selecting the appropriate running shoe for
your foot.

Here is an article with a good list of differentshoe types to choose from based on yourrunning style and pronation.

I talk to my shoes.
The box says converse.
