Proper Running ShoeAccording to copyeditor Linzay Logan of Competitor magazine, traditional running shoes and trail running shoes are not radically dissimilar from each other; and together are envisioned to defend the feet.

What splits a trail running shoe from a customary one is that an unclear, pebbly, and jagged ground needs additional fortification which is where the trail running shoe comes into play. David Harkin, owner of the Portland Running Company states that trail joggers can stay with shoes that are equivalent to street shoes.

“Unless you are running in very rugged terrain, choosing a trail running shoe that is similar to your road running shoe is best,” Harkin said. Your foot style also shows a vital influence in defining what shoe to wear. “It’s really important to identify your running characteristics and apply that to a trail running shoe,” Harkin said. “If you have tremendous support needs you still need that on the trails.”

When beginning a new exercise regimen, such as running, it is recommended to seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein will not only provide you with recommendations for the appropriate footwear to use while running, but can also treat and care for all your foot injuries.

Choosing the Right Running Shoes for Your Foot Type

Running is a physical activity although fun, can put a lot of stress on the joints, bones and ligaments of the body. Injury and stress on the foot can be an important factor on which kind of shoe you’re wearing. Running shoes should be worn based on your foot type. It is important to find out what fits you based on cushioning, stability and motion.

Determining your type

Speak with a shoe specialist or retail professional to see what your foot type is. They will be able to identify and measure your arch type, stride and gait.

Running Mechanics

When you are running or walking in your shoes, every step determines how your foot is landing. Pronation is the natural rolling of your ankle from outside to inside during foot strike.
