Men's Running Shoes

Today runners have many options when it comes to men's running shoes. The trick is choosing the correct running shoe based on running style and support. A runner's gait can help determine which running shoes men should choose. There are three different kinds of running gaits: underpronation, neutral pronation, and overpronation.

Underpronation, or supination, occurs when the runner lands on the outside of the foot. Due to a high arch, the foot stays on the outside causing the impact to be concentrated on the lateral side. This results in a lack of natural cushioning from the foot. For arch support, underpronators should run in cushioned running shoes.

Neutral runners also land on the outside portion of their feet, but then their feet roll slightly inward, absorbing the shock more effectively. Neutral runners generally have a normal arch and should also choose cushioned running shoes.

Overpronation occurs when the outside of the heel strikes the ground and the foot rolls inward severely. This is usually due to a low or flat arch. Overpronators should consider a motion control shoe or a stability running shoe if the overpronation is mild.

There are many styles of men's running shoes to choose from. Most running shoes are designed for pavement and occasional runs on packed surfaces. Often called "road shoes," they are made to cushion or stabilize the body during repetitive strides on hard, even surfaces. Trail shoes are designed for off-road running. They usually feature aggressive outsoles that provide traction and stability on uneven trail surfaces. Many also have a water resistant upper to keep feet dry. Barefoot running shoes have become popular because traditional running shoes force the feet to hit the ground heel first due to the heel being higher than the forefoot. Barefoot running shoes have a zero drop or very low heel-to-forefoot drop that results in a more natural forefoot strike that's believed to cause less impact and possibly fewer running injuries. Lightweight or performance running shoes are not considered to be everyday trainers. Instead, runners should use them occasionally for fast paced workouts, speed work, or for running races. Some men have a narrow or wide foot. To accommodate these runners, many running shoe manufacturers now offer their running shoes in varying widths.
