Good support, good material, good design and high quality of shoes will make your feet always comfortable and avoid unwanted injuries. Here are 5 Choosing Running Shoes Principles you should know.
1. Choosing right shoes as important as exercising sensibly
Choosing the proper shoes to improve the efficiency of exercise are also important like you exercise properly and appropriately. The shoes are what will assist you in most types of exercise. Whether running, walking, playing sports such as tennis, basketball … a suitable pair of shoes will help you feel more comfortable.
New Balance’s boss in Merrillville – Tony Miroballi, is a consultant in the field of foot care and exercise (Pedorthist) thinks that is easy to make a mistake in choosing the right shoe for the practice: “There will be no wonder if we just bring the available shoes in our wardrobe. Doing so, you may take the shoes which do not support or do not conform to the purpose and your workout plan, “he said.
2. Every kind of shoes is intended for a particular purpose
A pair of running shoes created exclusively for jogging, has a different structure from basketball or tennis shoes’ structure. Walking shoes are also different from running shoes. Depending on the design of the heel pads and your feet, there will be different supports. He stressed that in many cases, you can choose a pair of running shoes to walk, but do not use a pair of walking shoes for jogging.
3. Do not use the worn cushion shoes (Shock down)
There are general guidelines based on which you can narrow your choices. If you’re a jogger, you should find a pair of shoes which are lightweight for easy handling of a collision and must be durable. But a pair of shoes will not be able to be used forever. Supportive feature of it will be reduced gradually with the number of used times. According to a study, a pair of running shoes can be run average about 500,000 m.
4. Choose carefully before buying, make sure you wear right size
Padding on the soles brings balance and reduces shock for the shoes. This padding will typically be damaged before the soles. When this padding is damaged, the shoes will lose stability. The loss of function of the padding and the balance will increase the tension in the legs and increase the risk of wounded in the leg.
It is recommended to replace your running shoes when around 500-700 km. This also depends on the type of shoe you choose, body weight, and surface you run on. For example, for lightweight people, they can replace the shoe when running 750 km. Meanwhile, the heavier weight’s running shoes should be replaced approximately 550 km.
5. If you want good result, you must have a good investment
It is important to remember that exercising shoes should be used only for exercising, should not be used as fashion shoes. Of course, the specialized sports shoes will be quite expensive, but it will be offset to some costs that you have to spend for the injury during the workout when you use the amateur shoes.
