You have a neutral arch if your footprint has a distinct curve along the inside and your shoes wear out uniformly. Look for a “stability” shoe, which has the right mix of cushioning and support. Choosing the right athletic shoe for your foot is key to moving comfortably, efficiently and safely. When looking for an athletic shoe, the first step is to determine what type of foot shape you have.

Foot shape can be divided into three categories based on pronation, or how much the arch of your foot collapses when you wal. Choosing the right shoes can help avoid injury. Learn what can happen when you wear the wrong shoes: The chance of injury can be increased if your shoes are not designed for your activity or the conditions or are not suited to your body mass or foot mechanics. As an example, there are different requirements for beach versus road running.

If you want the right shoe for your fitness needs, it is important to find a fit that is specific for your foot type. The first step in purchasing a new pair of fitness shoes is having an experienced person measure your foot. You’re unlikely to find that person in a department store or box store.

Running shoes tend to work best for jogging, running, and walking. They’re built for heel-to-toe motion, and will last longer than simple walking shoes. If you engage in activities like aerobics or sports, go for cross trainers. Choosing a fitness shoe that maximizes the benefits of exercising is as important as the exercise itself. There are many things to consider when purchasing any shoes for your feet.

Experts agree that choosing the right athletic shoes is as important as the workout itself. The position of your feet while exercising influences alignment of every other part, muscles and joints, of your body; some good feet stretches can help strengthen your foot muscles and ease short-term aches and pains, but they can’t undo real damage from improper footwear. Our fit specialists will help you choose the right type of shoe for the kind of workout you planned. It is important to know that a running shoe is made for running and is different in many ways.

Finding the best-fitting shoe among the numerous choices at your local running store isn’t always easy. To ensure you walk out a happy customer, you. For feet with a low or flat arch, choose rigid shoes that control motion and resist bending. Normal feet, with a medium arch, do well in slightly curved shoes designed for stability. High-arched feet need curved shoes that twist and bend easily.

You can walk in running shoes, but never run in walking shoes (they’re too rigid).

But if you are a serious runner, cross trainers are best avoided because they weigh more than the standard running shoes and are not as flexible and well­cushioned.

  • What shoe do you suggest for my workout routine: jump rope, hiit, plyometrics, speed/agility training and occasional 30 minute jogs. Please help me out! Thanks!

  • Thank you Bob and Brad for the demonstration of how to tell your arch type. I never realized I was more on the flat feet side. This has helped with my search for my trouble feet.

  • I’m 367.0 lbs trying to loose weight and flat footed. I have very bad knee arthritis after 28 years in oilfield. I have Brooks that are very heavy soled on the inside causing my foot to roll to outside. So I determined this may be adding to my pain in my knees. Looking for suggestions in weight / flat footed range.

  • I went to buy Asics on Amazon after watching this video, but when you check out the reviews, it seems like with everything else in this country quality-control has gone out the window and they’re garbage now. So I have no idea what brand to buy anymore. If anyone can help please do.:(

  • This was very helpful. Saturday I spent over an hour trying running and walking shoes and could not get comfortable. I think I have plantar fasciitis on the right side and need to see a podiatrist. I have wide feet with very high arches and narrow heals. For hiking I wear Keens and they are fine. Do you have video about orthotics?

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I suffer from chroic compartment syndrome in both lower legs which i had to get a fasciotomy for bc of high pressures.

  • Hello Sir, i was born with bilateral clubfoot (C.T.E.V.) i am overweight so during lockdown i can only do walking and which are the best shoes for me? I generally duffer from knee pain especially in my kneecap and ankles are swollen. I walk for 10 kms a day.

  • Just watched this, I’m wondering though, you didn’t say exactly what to do for a super high arch. I have more foot pain with Asics, especially with each model change. Achilles and plantar fasciitis got worse. Please update with 2020 video, if possible. Thanks.

  • I am looking for a (running) shoe for standing all day (work). Are running shoes a good option and which general principles should I follow in making a choice? I liked the New Balance u showed in the video, which model are they? Thank you
    Ps I need a wide shoe accomodating for a slight overpronation

  • Fourth year medical student here! I love your videos and so happy I found you two. You guys share valuable information that I don’t get in medical school! Thank you for sharing!!!!

  • What are your opinions on zero drop minimalist shoes. I’ve been wearing them for some time and my plantar fasciitis is gone and my ankles and feet feel stronger but I injured my knee over a year ago and have noticed if I wear a more cushioned sneaker my knee pain subsides. Any thoughts?
