Which is the optimum running shoes for men for people with past ankle/foot injuries?

Which is the optimum running shoes for men for people with past ankle/foot injuries?

Depends on foot: Depending on your foot alignment, a running shoe that is either arch supporting (for people with flatfeet/pronated feet) or neutral arches (for people with high arches) is ideal.

The shoe should support the ankle well and you should feel safe wearing it on all types of terrain. It should be wide enough to accomodate all of your toes.

Minimalist and converse like cloth shoes are less than ideal. Read more

What are the best running shoes for good arch support?

What are the best running shoes for good arch support?

A Complicated Issue: It doesn't matter so much as a good fit otherwise, flexibility, durability and maximal cushioning. Addidas has a good pair but it's $180.00.But it also depends on the width of your foot and what you usually run on (asphalt? Sidewalk? Track?)and how much and how far. As for the arch, you can always buy an arch insert (there's lots on the market).So go for maximal comfort first. Plenty of info online Read more

What are the best brands of running shoes that help prevent shin splints?

What are the best brands of running shoes that help prevent shin splints?

CUSHIONING: Asics excels in cushioning, nimbus or cumulus (think clouds.) these will hold up over mileage. Mizuno wave is also a good choice. New balance has a few in their higher end. You will still need good pronatory control from an orthotic or a firm insole. Stretching is also key in the prevention of shinsplints. Read more

How do I choose the right running shoes for me?

Running Shoes: I am a podiatrist/reconstructive foot and ankle surgeon. I own a shoe store. You need a stable shoe. Saucony, asics, new balance are the best. Look for a pronation or motion control bar running through the center of the shoe. Barefoot running is a fad, and those shoes are bad for your feet. Barefoot running or minimilist running shoes cause stress fractures, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis... Read more

Do I need to change the way I run or my running shoes?

Do I need to change the way I run or my running shoes?

It depends...: Your question does not mention your problem, but the general rule for updating running shoes is every 300-500 miles, every 9-12 months or sooner if there is significant wear of the tread on the sole. Changing running style can include a shorter/longer stride, cadence (steps/minute), how you footstrike, etc. Consult with a sports medicine physician to help you answer these questions! Read more

Could good sole inserts replace good running shoes?

Could good sole inserts replace good running shoes?

Are the good: Sole inserts being placed in something? Or are you just standing on them? The shoe and the insert are two different things and serve two different purposes. Ideally, you want both. Having a good insole with a warn out shoe is not going to be a good idea... Read more

What's better for the foot? Sneakers, sandals, running shoes?

What's better for the foot? Sneakers, sandals, running shoes?

All can be fine: This is hard to answer. It depends on the quality of the shoe, how well it fits the shape of your foot and, most importantly, how well it feels. As a rule, the thicker the sole, the stiffer the shoe, the better the support, the better the shoe is for you. It does mean that other shoes are bad. Using generalities, my best answer to your question, would be a good running shoe. Dr l. Read more

How often should I change. My running shoes?

As often as you: Wear them out. If one runs once a week vs five times a week, there will obviously be more worn out shoe in a five day a week runner, so it really depends on run time. Read more

I am going to start working out at a gym, so what shoes should I buy running shoes or training shoes?

I am going to start working out at a gym, so what shoes should I buy running shoes or training shoes?

Varies with activity: It depends on what you are doing in the gym. If you are weight-lifting and doing low-impact cardio (elliptical, biking), then cross-trainers are probably the best choice; but if running shoes feel more light-weight and comfortable, then go for these. If power walking/jogging at the gym, then definitely buy running shoes. You should be fit for either by purchasing at a quality athletic shoestore. Read more

I am running 42 k a week my weight 72k. My question when to change my running shoes. I need detailed answers please due to importance?

On average: Every 500 miles. This can vary depending on the shoe and how much wear and tear you put on it. Even if outer sole looks good, midsole underneath can still be worn down. Every 500 miles is a good rule of thumb. Read more
