Air Jordan 15s upon footstrike

What does your footprint look like?Asics, Nike, Reebok, Mizuno, New Balance, Saucony, and more. It is Air Jordan 15s hard enough to decide on a brand, let alone the specific running shoe type that will work best for your foot. Here is some information that will help.

First off, the easiest way to figure out what running shoe you should select would be to pick the brain of a pro at a running shoe specialist store. A simple online search should help you figure out where to go in your area. The first thing they will do is look at your foot to figure out the type of arch you have (and if they don’t, get out of there!).

The three types are normal (medium), flat (low), and high arches. Imagine you have just stepped in tar, and are now walking down a sidewalk, your footprints trailing behind you. If you can see the entire bottom of your foot on the cement, you have a flat (low) arch.

This means you will likely need a stability shoe with something called “dual density” midsoles, or motion control shoes, with firm support imbedded in the shoe to prevent overpronating. This is because with a flat foot, upon footstrike (when your foot first makes contact with the ground), the arch actually collapses inward more than desired, increasing injury risk. This type of shoe will help combat this issue.

Okay, now you’re back on the sidewalk, barefoot, tar footprints splayed out behind you. This time you can see about half the bottom of your foot in the print, meaning you have a normal (medium) arch, which is the most common type. This also means you are considered a “normal pronator,” which is a good thing Jordan 3 Retro because pronation is actually beneficial to avoid injuries. As the arch collapses inward (pronation) more shock is absorbed naturally, meaning the force is less jarring on other parts of your body. Your foot is designed in a way that naturally absorbs shock! You can wear just about any shoe. If you are a light weight runner, neutral cushioned shoes without Air Jordan 16s added support may be best. If not, a general stability shoe with moderate arch support may be best.

The last type Air Jordan 1s of footprint you may see trailing you on the sidewalk is one with basically just your heel, ball of foot, and a thin line where Air Jordan 19s your arch would be. Congrats! Take pride in having the most unique type of foot. Unfortunately, this means you are likely an underpronator, or supinator, resulting in more than an ideal amount of shock radiating up your leg. A neutral cushioned shoe with a soft midsole will encourage pronation. The shoe to avoid is a motion control shoe, as this reduces pronation, which is the opposite of what your high arch foot needs!
