We have looked at the best running shoes / trainers and hope to assist you discover the ideal shoe. This report has been started due to the huge selection of running shoes available in sports shops and also the lack of knowledge exhibited by the team within shops. Firstly the plan of running shoes has changed dramatically and we are now confronted with sports shoes which are made specifically for this particular sporting activity. You may run in cross training shoes or tennis shoes that they seem very similar, but they have quite different cushioning and traction, and may cause injury so my objective is to concentrate only in running shoes, shoes made to offer you maximum performance whilst protecting your body from the damage due to your foot striking the floor.
Most of us want the most comfortable and best fitting shoes; we all will need to guard our feet ankles, knees, hips and spine thus allowing ourselves to train to our highest potential without causing harm. Cushioned trainers have a long way and are constantly improving. Remember your initial trainers with flat bottoms canvass uppers and zero support. Now with the perfect probation running shoe this may be a thing of the past – we can run on uneven or hard ground without fear of harm. We all have individual strike routines; a few people are heal first runners others run more on our feet but using the best cushioned running shoes adapted to our attack pattern using new materials to cushion the effect, our running experience will be greatly improved; in certain cases leaving you with the feeling of running on air. With the most recent materials you will get cushioned support with elastic upper body allowing your foot motion whilst retaining maximum support and staying incredibly light weight.
Regular feet: – running on a typical foot with normal arch, you may land on the outside of your foot and will roll inwards.
Flat feet: – triggers under probation. Unlike a normal foot, you will have a low arch, land on the outside of the foot and roll inwards but with too little stability. The perfect trainer will have greater stability and a firmer mid sole.
Arched feet: – triggers over probation. This foot type has a high arch and is not able to bend so much, resulting in little movement. In this example, a cushioned elastic shoe could be recommended.
As you can see the shoe needs to able to adapt to various foot types and running styles that is the reason why the flexibility is so important to the runner. We also change our running fashion based on rate and fatigue.
