How to pick the correct running shoes

Know where you’re running
Road Running Shoes:
o For pavement and very little uneven surfaces
o Should be fairly light and flexible
o Good cushion for feet because of the hard surface
Trail Running Shoes:
o For off road trails
o Deep treads for extra traction
o Extra stability and support because of uneven surfaces
Know your feet
Know your ankles, pronation affects the sideways motion of your foot.
o If your ankle rolls in it means you over pronate
o If your ankle rolls out it means you under pronate
Know your ankles, the height of your arch can affect how your ankles pronates
o High arches typically mean your ankles under pronate
o Flat arches typically mean your ankles over pronate
Know your laces
Different lacing techniques can help with different problems with your feet; there are special lacing techniques for hammertoes, heel slipping, and high arches. Come into Live Fit and one of our personal trainers will help you tie your shoes correctly.
Tips for trying on running shoes
Allow for about a ½ in of space in the toe box because when running down hill your foot shifts in your shoe
Try shoes on at the end of the day when your feet are the largest
Bring your orthotics when trying on running shoes…get orthotics if you don’t have them! I swear by mine!
Is it time for new running shoes? The average running shoe lasts between 300-500 miles or 3-4 months so make sure to replace them often.
Correct fitting running shoes can prevent injury and there are many different locations around town that can help fit you with running shoes.
