Posts for tag: Basics of a Good Running [or Walking] Shoe

Whether you rarely jog, or run a couple of days a week, or regularly race competitively on pavement or trails, a key to enjoying – and enduring - your runs [or walks], is establishing and maintaining good foot health practices, which include periodic shoe fitting and proper selection. The importance of a good running [or walking] shoe is an often overlooked aspect of the sport as well as its role in helping people enjoy and benefit from their workouts long-term.
 
Although it’s not rocket science, there are a few basic things to look for when selecting a good pair of supportive running [or walking] shoes. 
They include: 
-When you bend a running [walking] shoe from front to back, it should only bend at the ball of the foot. 
-The mid foot and hind foot should be firm. 
-Heel counters on the back of running [walking] shoes should also be firm to prevent ankles from rolling in or out. 
-Twisting running [walking] shoes with your hands should not allow for a lot of bending. 
-You do not want very flexible shoes since this tends to put greater stress on on your feet
 
The award-winning expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, and Maspeth are always happy to evaluate and discuss your running [or walking] shoes with you.
