Running Shoe Lists – Aarghhh!

Someone came in today with a list of recommended running shoes. I hate running shoe lists. As well intended as they may be the ones I have seen are usually obsolete and tell only half the story.

Running shoe companies categorize their shoes as “Motion Control”, “Stability”, “Neutral” or “Cushioned”. Although these descriptions are useful when evaluating the lower (bottom half of shoe), they don’t take into account the upper (everything attached to the heel and sole).

Without matching both the lower and upper parts of the shoe to the upper and lower parts of your foot, you’ll wind up with a shoe that may work and then again may not.

If your a competitive runner or just enjoy a casual stroll – your foot deserves better.
