Posts for tag: finding the right running shoes

Shoe makers are now creating foot-shaped running shoes that follow the foot’s natural anatomic shape to allow room for the toes to stretch naturally. In the past, some hardcore runners have gone as far as removing their toenails to avoid the damage created from repetitively slamming their toes into the front of their narrow shoes. This action would create blackened toenails, which in recent years have become a twisted badge of honor for more intense runners. Fortunately, the creation of these foot-shaped shoes will keep toes from being ruined while also allowing for comfort and balance of the foot. Shoes include Altra Paradigm, ZEMgear Terra Tech, Merrell Bare Access, and Topo Runduro.

Running shoes should be selected based on their comfort and support. For more information about what to look for in choosing a running shoe, consult with one of our podiatrists of njfootandanklectr.com. Our doctors will attend to all of your foot and ankle needs and provide you with quality treatment. 

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.

Pronation is a correct form of walking or running. It helps absorb shock and store energy from your lower extremities.

Fortunately the creation of these foot-shaped running shoes will allow for comfort and balance of the foot, while keeping toes from being ruined. Shoes include the ZEMgear Terra Tech, Altra Paradigm, Topo Runduro, and Merrell Bare Access Trail.

Choosing the right running shoeA 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.
