What are the differences in running footwear? There are many various types of shoes that you can wear when training and all are determined by performance. Different types of running shoes include oversized, minimalist, motion control, pronators and supinators, and more. Finding the best running shoes for yourself involve taking your feet’s biomechanics, your weight, experience, and injury history into consideration.

Proper fitting shoes are essential for runners. For more information about proper shoe fitting and its benefits consult with Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti will answer any of your foot- and ankle-related questions.

Proper Shoe Fitting

When it comes to foot health, having properly fitted shoes can help prevent injuries to the foot. Out feet affect our posture and gait, which in turn affects the biomechanics and overall bodily structure. With 33 joints, 26 bones, and over 100 ligaments, the potential for serious injury is much greater than one realizes. Although the feet cease growth in adulthood, they still change shape as they mature. Here are some factors to consider when it comes to investing in properly fitting shoes:

  • Be sure the shoes fit correctly right away
  • Ensure the ball of your foot fits comfortably in the widest portion of the shoes
  • Even though they may look fashionable, improperly fitting shoes can either create adverse conditions or exacerbate existing ones you may already have
  • Walk along a carpeted surface to ensure the shoes comfortably fit during normal activity

Keeping in mind how shoes fit with the biomechanics of your body, owning properly fit shoes is vitally important. Fortunately, it is not difficult to acquire footwear that fits correctly. Be sure to wear shoes that support the overall structure of your body. Do your feet a favor and invest in several pairs of well-fitted shoes today.
