Whether you’re just starting out or are an experienced runner, it is important that you have the proper footwear for the style of running that you enjoy. Most running shoes can last about 400 miles, however if you’re running on rugged, uneven, or rough terrain, it is possible that they may experience wear and tear earlier on. Your particular type of running stride can also play a role in wearing down your running shoes. Tracking your miles while you run, and inspecting the state of your shoes before starting your activity, can help you to recognize if your shoes need to be replaced. You may also notice your knees and feet may ache after a run if your shoes are too used, and the support they once gave is now lacking. For more advice on caring for your running shoes and knowing when to replace them, please speak with a podiatrist.
If you are a runner, wearing the right running shoe is essential. For more information, contact Malik Abraham, DPM from Northwest Orthopedic Surgery. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.
Choosing the Right Running Shoe for Your Foot Type
To increase performance and avoid the risk of injury, it is important to choose the right running shoe based on your foot type. The general design of running shoes revolves around pronation, which is how the ankle rolls from outside to inside when the foot strikes the ground.
