pearland tx podiatrist spring workout shoesGoodbye, Mr. Treadmill! Sunny days and warmer weather are back and beckoning you, the exercise enthusiast, to hit the outdoor trails. Our Pearland TX podiatrist has great tips to consider when breaking out shoes for exercising this spring. The first of these is to evaluate whether it is time to part with last year’s pair. After about 350-400 miles of use, or if you notice the fit has become less comfortable or supportive, it may be time to invest in a new pair. Keep these tips in mind when shopping this spring!

Tips For Finding The Best Exercise Shoe From Our Pearland TX Podiatrist

The key to finding the perfect shoes for exercise is knowing your own feet. Do you have high arches? If the middle of your foot is high from the ground, your high arch will require proper support when running or exercising. A cushioned sole with a soft midsole will enhance your exercise experience, and if “shoe jargon” is unfamiliar to you, do not be afraid to ask a sales associate what shoe may be most appropriate for you! It’s better to ask and walk away with a shoe that will take you far than be stuck with an uncomfortable fit. Brooks Glycerin, Nike Air Pegasus, and Asics Gel-Kinsei are models worth looking into.

If the middle of your foot does touch the ground, you have low arches or flat feet. For minimal discomfort, your weight should be mostly distributed to the balls and heels of the feet, but people with flat feet experience extra stress in the middle area. This is why finding a shoe with extra arch support and motion control is imperative. New Balance 1260v6, Mizuno Wave Inspire 13, and Asics Gel-Kayano 23 are all models that incorporate these features.

Additionally, it is important to keep in mind which activity you intend to pursue in your new shoes. Walking shoes and running shoes are not created equally, so be sure to specify your activity of choice before shopping as well.

Why Are Exercise Shoes Worth The Investment? Our Pearland TX Podiatrist Explains

Considering that exercising without the proper shoe features may result in shin splints, excess stress on the foot, blisters, bruising, plantar fasciitis, and tendonitis, our Pearland podiatrist recommends you consider the worth of investing in a reliable exercise shoe. Again, be sure to ask questions and try on several models when shopping for a great shoe! A thorough shopping session will lend itself to ensuring many enjoyable exercise experiences this spring.
