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.
 
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. -Twisting running shoes with your hands should not allow for a lot of bending.
-You do not want very flexible Since this tends to put grader stress on the feet.
 
The expert doctors at Advanced Podiatry are always happy to check your running shoes for you.
