This is typically a runner with a high arch in their foot, and is typically going to want a neutral and cushioned running shoe that also offers a decent amount of flexibility.
A runner who has normal pronation, or slightly overpronates, meaning your feet roll inward when you run, is going to want to look for moderate cushioning and stability that allows your foot work naturally.
For runners that have flat feet, who typically overpronate, you will want to look for a motion-control, or stability shoe with relatively firm cushioning.
Once you have decided on which type of running shoe is right for you, there are many features to consider. Running shoes can be designed with many different uses in mind. Minimalist running shoes are designed to mimic the way your foot moves naturally. They are very lightweight and feature very little cushioning for those looking for a barefoot running feel. On the other end of the spectrum, trail running shoes typically feature extensive cushioning, and aggressive trade patterns designed for those that prefer a more challenging terrain.
Some common features to consider for running shoes include, breathable materials to keep your feet cool and comfortable, a minimal amount of stitching or seams in the toebox area to avoid irritation, anti-microbial and moisture wicking materials used on the inside of the running shoes, and a durable outsole.
Running is an enjoyable pastime and also one of the best activities you can participate in to improve your overall health. If you are one of those motivated individuals, you know how important it is to wear the proper running shoe for your unique type of foot. Without the correct running shoe your feet are more susceptible to common running injuries. Here at Eastbay we offer the largest variety of mens's, women's, and kids' running shoes. Eastbay offers running shoes in a wide array of styles and brands so you can find the perfect pair that will fit your specific foot type.
