Athletic Shoes :: Running Shoes
Runners know how important finding the right shoe can be. Running shoes combine lightweight design, arch support, and heel cushioning to make running more comfortable and help prevent injuries. Brands like New Balance, Aetrex, and others offer running shoes for a variety of running styles including jogging, trail running, and cross country running.
Look for running shoes designed for your specific gait type. If you tend to over-pronate you will want a shoe with motion control. Motion control running shoes will help prevent you from rolling the ankle too far inward. On the opposite spectrum there are runners who under-pronate. Under-pronators tend to have higher arches and need a little extra cushioning in the heel and ball of the foot to encourage the natural rolling motion of the foot. For neutral runners a mild stability shoe offers a good combination of cushioning and support. While most individuals can run comfortably in a stability shoe, choosing the right shoe for your specific gait cycle can help reduce the risk of injury. New Balance running shoes offer a range of styles for each type of runner.
