"Choose the perfect running shoes and let your feet lead the way to new horizons."
A couple of decades ago, the world was a simpler place, and so were running shoes.
LEARN ABOUT PRONATION
The rotation of the foot downward and inward when you land on the ground is called pronation.
Some runners, however, overpronate. That is, their feet roll too far inward. This is a common problem that can lead to injuries, particularly of the lower leg and knee. Some runners supinate (or underpronate); their feet roll inward only a little after contact.
CHECK YOUR FOOT TYPE
Take the "wet test"
It's a quick and easy way of discovering what your footprint tells you about your degree of pronation.
(a) A normal foot means you probably are a normal pronator.
(b) A flat foot means you may have a tendency to overpronate
(c) A high-arched foot means you may be a supinator.
GET THE RIGHT SHOE
Overpronators should wear a shoe with a straight shape.
Supinators should wear a shoe with a curved shape.
Normal pronators should wear a shoe with a semi-curved shape.
MAKE SURE YOUR SHOE FITS
"Worry about the fit and the comfort"
A running shoe that fits will be snug but not tight. Buying running shoes that are too small is a common problem. Your running shoes may need to be a half to a full size larger than your street shoes.
