Runner and the Shoes:

Many runners may be wearing the wrong shoes for their particular stride or the right shoes that were chosen for the adverse reasons. This is reported according to a new scientific evaluation about running shoes.

The link between running shoes and running injuries is surprisingly contentious  and  from a scientific point of view is  unsettled.

Most of us who run have heard that we should choose our shoes based, for the most part, on two broad technical criteria.

The  running shoes feel at ease when you’re standing in a shoe store, but the true examination comes several miles into your jog. You’ll soon realize that the ideal shoe has more to do with your running style and the shape of your foot than it does with the logo stitched on the side.


Categories of different Running Shoes:

Road-running shoes are designed for pavement and occasional forays onto packed surfaces with slight irregularities. Light and flexible, they’re made to cushion or stabilize feet during repetitive strides on hard, even surfaces.

Rail-running shoes are designed for off-road routes with rocks, mud, roots or other obstacles. They are improved with violent tread for solid grip and fortified to provide constancy, support and underfoot guard.

Cross-training shoes are intended for gym or Crossfit exercises or any balance action where having more  touch with  the earth is preferred over a wide platform sole.


Types of Running Shoes:


Neutral shoes can labor for gentle pronators, but are most excellent for neutral runners or people who tent to roll outward. These shoes offer some shock absorption and the medial support.


Some super-cushioned shoes offer as much as 50% more cushion than the traditional shoes for the shock absorption.



Stability shoes are for Good for runners who exhibit mild to moderate overpronation. They often include a firm “post” to reinforce the arch side of each midsole, an area highly impacted by overpronation.

Motion control shoes are best for runners who display reasonable to harsh overpronation, they provide features such as stiffer heels or a plan built on straighter lasts to counteract overpronation.


Barefoot shoes provide the bare least amount in protection from possible hazards on the ground. Lot of have no cushion in the heel pad and a very thin layer—as little as 3–4mm—of shoe between the skin and the ground.

All barefoot shoes feature a “zero drop” from heel to toe. This encourages a mid-foot or forefoot strike. Traditional running shoes, by contrast, feature a 10–12mm drop from the heel to the toe and offer more heel cushioning.

Minimalist shoes have a feature very lightweight construction, little to no arch sustain and a heel drop of about 4–8mm to encourage a natural running motion and a midfoot strike and provide cushioning and flexibility.

Few minimalist styles may provide stability posting to assist the overpronating runner change to a barefoot running movement.

Minimalist shoes should last you roughly 300 to 400 miles.


Choosing the Right Shoes:

Choosing the running shoes that will fit you best is easy:

Analyze  the type of running you do and your running style.Pick the category of shoe and features that match your needs and try on shoes to find the one that fits best.

Aa pair of running shoes should last between 400 to 500 miles of running or n to 4 months for the regular runners. Examine your shoes if the midsoles and outsoles are compressed or worn. If they are, it is the time to buy a new pair.
