Some running professionals say that the best way to run is to use barefoot shoes or, directly, to run barefoot, but the truth is that for most mortals, good running shoes will be the best investment.
4 models of sneakers perfect for wearing on the street and at work
When running choose well the type of running shoe It is very important, since it can prevent us from injuring ourselves in the long term. Therefore, it is advisable to take certain things into account before getting a pair of running shoes.
In addition, whenever possible, we will go in person to a specialized store because there will surely be expert people to assist us and help us choose. For now, we should think about the land the one we usually go out for: it is not the same to run in a pine forest or through the countryside than in the center of a city.
Four things to look for when choosing running shoes
From the spatialized web I’m a marathoner, their experts offer us the following advice.
1. Discover the type of footprint you have
Nobody runs in the same way because nobody has a type of tread that is the same as that of others. There is a pronated, supinated or neutral tread and the first thing we need to know is this detail to understand the way in which the foot strikes when it touches the ground. You can do this by going to a specialized center or seeing how the sole of your footwear wears out.
The pisada pronadora It occurs when the rotation of the foot is excessive. On this occasion, the weight of your body tends to be transferred to the inside of the foot, causing contact between the ground and the inside of the shoe, instead of the metatarsals. This leads to an imbalance, causing the foot to rotate inwards to regain some of the lost stability. Wear occurs on the inner side of the sole.
The supinator step It is the type of tread opposite to the pronator tread. In supination your weight is supported on the side of the shoe at the moment of supporting the foot, affecting the efficiency of the tread. The impact of the foot against the ground causes a greater vibration that affects the upper part of your legs.
Runners with a supinated footprint are more prone to injuries and fractures due to the impact of their footprint. Supination also reduces the foot’s natural ability to absorb shock. Runners with supinator tread are easy to distinguish because in their shoes you can see how the wear is on the outside.
Pisa neurona is the least damaging and erosive, and in runners who have it, injuries are less frequent and the sole wears out equally on the entire surface, making the shoe last longer.
If your footprint is neutral, you will need ones that have stability. In case the plant goes in or out, you will have to look for a shoe that is responsible for balancing the forces and reducing the impact on the body.
2. Keep in mind the type of running that we are going to practice
The sport modality that we want to practice also determines the type of footwear to choose. Preparing for a marathon is not the same as doing short distances at a filthy trot. You can always opt for the most expensive models, but perhaps you will be making an extra expense.
3. Make sure the slippers fit your foot size
Some people think that the shoes have to put a little pressure on the foot to improve support, but this is not usually true, since it only causes injuries and problems such as the retraction of the nails. The shoe should not be loose, but it should not be too tight either.
Also, keep in mind that the feet swell a little while doing sports, so it is essential to look for a shoe that supports the heel so that it does not slip, but does not oppress the rest of the foot.
4. Don’t get carried away by flashy colors and styles
Although it is clear that we do not like to wear ugly shoes, aesthetics is not an essential factor in your choice. What really matters when looking for a shoe deal is that they are functional, safe and comfortable.
How to properly try on our sneakers
If we are going to buy in a physical store, we must bring the socks that we will use to go running. Additionally, we will choose the afternoon to go to the test, since then. our feet will be at their highest point of size. We’ll put on both shoes and walk a little with them.
If we make the purchase in any of the internet establishments, consult the comments of other athletes or search on objective pages that analyze each model before deciding on a certain model.
Five quality models at a good price
Salomon is one of the great brands when it comes to sports shoes and the Bajo Predict Soc is an ideal option for those who already have some running experience and are looking for a shoe that is comfortable as well as safe.
With a rubber sole and synthetic material on the upper and lining, the Bajo Predict Soc are shoes with a great cushioning system and hardly any weight.
New Balance is another of the best-known names in high-end sports shoes, although they have also become popular as casual shoes. One of the most striking features of the 880v10 is the technology used in the sole: Fresh Foam X, which mixes different foams to create a sensation of comfort without losing breathability and support.
Regarding the rest of the shoe, we find synthetic fabric -Hypoknit- to ensure foot stability.
Similar to the previous model, the ASICS Gel-Kayano 24 has a FlyteFoam sole that also focuses on the mix of foams to provide sure footing while adjusting to our foot and the terrain.
But the most important point of these shoes is their heel, which incorporates Metacluch technology: a system capable of adjusting according to the angle of support of our foot. In this way, we avoid stepping wrong even if it is unintentionally.
A cheaper option than the previous ones, but without sacrificing comfort and safety, are the Adidas Kaptir Super. A classic design shoe that has a textile upper and lining.
The sole, for its part, is made of synthetic material -Boost- which, although it is not as adaptable as those of ASICS or New Balance, is useful for not so expert runners.
And we close the list with the Salomo S/Lab Ultra: one of the best options on the market when it comes to running it concerns We are facing a model that has Contagrip technology for its sole: a technology that works especially well over long distances -half marathons or marathons- and on complicated terrain -wet, mud, countryside…-.
At the same time, it is made of Polyurethane Foam, which combines support and lightness. In addition, this pair of shoes are water-repellent, that is, they do not allow water to enter or absorb it.
