Running Corner: Running Shoe Tip 

Are your running shoes helping or hindering performance?

Consider the following tips when buying new shoes:
  1. Are they comfortable?
  2. Are they suited for your activity?
  3. Do they compliment your specific running style? (overpronator vs. underpronator)
  4. Do they provide sufficient medial (arch-side) support and durability?
  5. Can the insole of the shoe be removed to accommodate customization in the form of an orthotic if necessary?
