Description: A guide to choosing the right shoes for the runner in youChelsea McKell, owner of UtahRunningGuide.com and former Brigham Young University cross-country athlete, urges those who have had trouble running not to give up.  As an avid runner McKell has experience with choosing running shoes and so she offers some tips for others looking to select the perfect pair.  

Buying running shoes a half to a whole size larger than what you’d normally wear is recommended because feet typically swell during exercise and need the extra room.  Getting a running-gait analysis is also recommended because it is a process that can assess the needs of your feet.  McKell also recommends not buying into trends, since everybody is different.  

As McKell points out, getting the proper running shoe is vital to a good workout and learning the difference between walking and running shoescan help you get the most out of your workout and prevent injuries. In order to further help you with your exercise regimen, it is recommended to seek the care of a chiropodist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay.  Dr. Stein can work with you and give you a better understanding how your feet are affected by both running and walking shoes.

Walking

Flexibility – walking shoes are designed to have soft, flexible soles. This allows the walker to push off easily with each step.

Heel – walking shoes also have a beveled or angled heel. This helps absorb shock and puts less pressure on the ankles.

Running

Light Weight – running shoes are generally made of more lightweight material to reduce the amount of weight your body needs to lift with each stride.

Thicker Soles – running shoes also provide shock absorbers that reduce the rippling effects of impacting the ground during each stride.
