Feet, just like people come in all sizes, shapes, and designs. If you make the trip down to your local running shoe store you will most likely see a wall, sometimes multiple walls, of running shoes. The overwhelming number of options may cause profuse sweating, blurred vision, and/or a pounding head. The “wall” has shoes with all sorts of technical features, each of which seems to outdo the other with claims for stability, cushioning, and/or motion control. Then you throw in this year’s model and left-over shoes from last year.
If you are lucky, a knowledgeable salesperson who kind of looks like a runner will ask you what type of shoe do you need.
How much do you run?
Are you a neutral runner, do you need stability, or how about this motion control shoe?
