Top 3 Tips for Picking a Running Shoe
How do I pick a new running shoe?
There are a lot of different options for running shoes these days; all with claims of providing the best technology to support your feet. Figuring out what options are the best for you can be overwhelming. We’ve put together a few tips that can help you choose the right shoe for you.
Tip #1: Keep it Consistent
Go for fits, brands or makes that have worked for you in the past
Try to keep the heel to toe drop difference and stack height of the shoe consistent while in the middle of training
The time to think about changing things up is when you are trying to increase your running time or if you get a running injury
Tip #2: Try Out Different Options Based on Your Goals, Injury History and Gait
High flexibility, low heel to toe drop, low stack height and weight
Less likely to have medial posting for stability
Better for higher performance, non-injured
Stiffer, heavier, cushioned heel
More likely to have stability or motion control options
Better for acute injuries to the foot, achilles or calf
Cushioning is stiffer under the instep to help with overpronation
Good option if your current shoe soles have worn more on the outside of the heel or under the instep and if you are having pain
Cushioning is uniform throughout the sole of the shoe
Tip #3: Get a Running or Gait Assessment from a Professional
To prevent injury or improve running performance, we recommend getting a running or gait assessment to evaluate your running form & technique as well as identify muscular imbalances
Try adjusting cadence
Add in strengthening
Try a graded running program to build load
Try slowly transitioning to a minimalist shoe to improve performance
