Health Tip: Choosing the Right Running Shoes10/12/12
(HealthDay News) -- Healthy running largely depends on choosing
the correct running shoes. And a prime consideration is the shape
of your arches -- be they low/flat, "normal" or high.
The American Podiatric Medical Association offers these
guidelines for choosing running shoes:
- If you have a low arch, buy shoes that offer plenty of support,
motion control and stability.
- If you have a "normal" arch, look for shoes that have generous,
equal amounts of cushioning and support to help absorb more
- If you have a high arch, look for shoes with a soft midsole and
plenty of flexibility.
