Review of Running Shoes

Running Shoes

Running shoes are the most important piece of equipment a runner, or a jogger, possesses. Proper fitness footwear helps to prevent stress and injury to the feet, hamstring and calf muscles, while optimizing the running stride.

Review of Running Shoes

There is no such thing as the best running shoe. It all depends on the biomechanics of your feet, the type of running activity you perform, the surface upon which you train and the intensity of your training workouts. Which is why fitness experts say that, when buying footwear for running or jogging, it pays to shop in a specialist sports or running store whose staff have specialized knowledge.

Types of Running Shoes

Some athletic footwear experts divide shoes into three main categories: cushioned shoes, stability shoes and motion control shoes.

Stability Running Shoes

These offer a good blend of cushioning, medial support (to limit excessive inward rolling of the foot, which can cause injury) and durability. Ideal footwear if you’re a midweight runner who doesn’t have any severe motion control problems. Also suits runners or joggers with normal arches.

Motion Control Running Shoes

Motion control shoes are the most rigid, control-oriented running shoes. They're designed to slow down or limit extreme inward rolling of the foot and ankle, which can cause injury (excessive rolling is called 'overpronation'). Motion control shoes are generally heavy but very durable. Ideal if you need control features and place a premium on durability, or if you’re a heavy runner who needs extra durability. Also suits runners or joggers with flat feet.

Cushioned Running Shoes

Cushioned shoes generally have the softest midsoles and the least added stability. The more cushioning in the shoe, the longer it takes for the runner to feel the force caused by striking the ground. The increased amount of time and the decreased amount of force helps to minimize the wear and tear on the runner's body. Cushioned fitness footwear is ideal for efficient runners whose feet don't roll inwards excessively ('overpronate') when running. Also suits runners with high arches.
