Duck Dynasty Becomes More Popular With Avid Runners
A shoe company is releasing a new line of running shoes inspired by the reality series Duck Dynasty. To promote the new project, A & E Network is connecting with Rockethub for “Project Startup”, and if the proposal can raise up to $100k, they will donate $20k to wounded veterans groups.
The innovative new footwear makes use of a exclusive equipment known as WaveSpring, a lightweight coil that pillows and yields energy for not as much of a tension in the foot and more relaxation. Above 200 people have accomplished marathons and races wearing these shoes, and a study showed those who wore these running shoes had a reduced heart rate and could run an average of 20 seconds per mile faster.
When beginning a new exercise regimen, such as running, it is recommended to seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Greg Khaimov of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC. Dr. Khaimov 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
Injury and stress on the foot can be an important factor on which kind of shoe you’re wearing. It is important to find out what fits you based on cushioning, stability and motion. Speak with a shoe specialist or retail professional to see what your foot type is.
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.
Pronation is a correct form of walking or running. It helps absorb shock and store energy from your lower extremities. Neutral runners who pronate correctly do not need specific shoes, since they have stability and control.
