Picking the ideal running shoes and equipment


 
Advice,Business,Consumer
Running as an exercise is a great way to strengthen your aerobic and cardiovascular capacities. A popular choice for men and women, it can be done almost anywhere. Aside from an empty road and the right clothes for the weather running requires a good running shoe. A few things you would want to consider when acquiring the right running shoes are detailed below.

Distance you will typically run. A new runner doing less than 5 kilometers a week will do well with entry level shoes. Training for serious runners however will require more miles and they might want to get two pairs, one for training (called a trainer) and one for racing (flats or racers).

Being flat footed or having a high arch will usually guide you to the proper pair. High arches will usually underpronate and will need a neutral shoe. Those with low arches will need shoes which feature pronation control. Those who possess neither flat footed nor high arched, or runners with normal feet will want shoes that feature stability.

Shoes can also be classified with the surface they are designed to run on. Concrete or pavement will require what runners call trainer, or simply a standard running shoe. Trail running shoes are meant to be worn outdoors on uneven terrain. While track shoes will perform best at your local oval. You'll mostly want trainers if you are like most runners.

Sizing like height can vary throughout the day. If you are shopping at your local running store then its best to shop later toward the day. This will ensure that your size is at its greatest. The standard practice for fitting running shoes is to make sure that distance between the end of the shoe and the tip of your toes (the longest ones) is about a thumb's width. Also making sure that your forefoot, that is the toes can move freely. If it's tight then you might need a wider shoe. Some runners also require a snug fit around the rear of the foot to prevent heel slippage during running.

Most people recommend a local running store. However, more and more people are buying them online. So it's best to read reviews to educate yourself on the fit of the shoe. Some shoes tend to run smaller and shoe shoes the opposite. If the review doesn't make mention of it then it's probably close to standard sizing.

For the higher mileage runner having more than one pair of running shoes is necessary. The alternate pair (or pairs) will allow the main shoe to rest and recuperate. Most shoes do very well when the cushioning elements are allowed to spring back within a couple of days. This practice also prolongs the life of all shoes. A normal shoe will endure 300 miles or so but two pairs might last you 800.

The newer runner should realize that price isn't usually the best determinant for a good shoe. Don't hesitate to let your feet ride on lower end shoes from big brand names such as Asics, New Balance, Saucony, Nike and more.

Choosing the right running shoes is not as complicated as it seems to be. The myth of requiring newbie runners to go to a local running store is meant to keep their business afloat. It sure helps the running industry and merchants who deal with them but educating yourself when you're choosing your shoes is important if you are serious about running.
