Finding the Right Running Shoe Not So Easy for Some PeopleJill Barker of Montreal Gazette says that runners often spend a significant amount of time focusing on cushioning and stability when it comes to looking for the ideal running shoe.

Additionally, many modern shoes are created with the ambition of being able to correct biomechanical flaws. According to Barker, runners are often told to rely on perfect mechanics instead of the perfect shoes if they wish to reduce the chances of becoming injured.

“We’re in a muddy area when it comes to choosing shoes, said David Pearsall, a professor of biomechanics in the kinesiology and physical education department of McGill University.

Careful consideration needs to be provided when it comes to choosing a running shoe. If you are seeking guidance, come see podiatrist Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can help you find a running shoe that works for you and your feet.

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. Neutral runners who pronate correctly do not need specific shoes, since they have stability and control.

Over-pronators

those people who run with excessive ankle rolling. Over-pronators tend to have ankles that angle inward, flat feet, and or bowed legs.
