At least 100 years ago that we know the different types of shoes that exist for running, it is today when this activity has crowded in a popular form, and all want to go out to eat the city by miles and miles of challenging our physical capacity and wanting to improve week after week but… that goes with joints, believe that we can improve the quality of life of our fundamental pillars the legs?
Good as I am sure you know one of the greatest remedies is the work of force simultaneously to career work, but another solution is to know what kind of shoe is that most fits your features, let’s talk about it then.
The first running shoes dating from approximately 1920 which were a pair of shoes with rubber soles are known crepe and the leather upper with an approximate weight of about 300 g, these “shoes” were used for the first time in the marathon of Boston that same year.
Starting from there different types of shoes are developed every day more adapted to give comfort, stability and specificity to our career, from nails in racing shoes wider fast, to those of sole or even without it.
As we choose then our ideal slippers, well, we take into account that one of the fundamental patterns is the type of foot we have wider or more narrow, another feature that we see is our body weight, let us note that the weight that we of offer to the ground, the returns us with the same force when we walk and multiplied by 10 when we run Let us therefore take care with our footwear.
The characteristics of the shoes we should have 3 that are very clear, the type of sole, we need a soft sole adapted to the environment, to the movement of the foot, which increase proprioception, but at the same time that it is stable.
It is said that if you take a shoe and you can not bend the sole (the tip touches the heel) it is better to go for others.
Another feature is the weight of the shoe itself, if they are heavy effort is going to be great, remember that interest is getting tired as much as possible and eliminate the greater burden that we can.
And the characteristic most importantly the Drop, this is the sole difference between the heel and tip this is important due to the inclination which takes the foot and therefore your center of gravity.
If you have problems on the part of the twins, I soleo or at the level of the Achilles tendon, what we are going to try is to take a dorp more high, (8-10mm) allowing you to give more confidence to these muscles and therefore the resistance offered in the race is less.
Now, if the problem we usually have overloads in quadriceps or knees then find a drop as low (4-6 mm) which will help us to remove the charge in that area, but of course care with excessively high drops or the very low or non-existent, since these are the worst.
And how can we know that drop have the shoes we use? Look for some years, brands of sneakers such as Nike decided to put this in the sole, which is quite useful and followed you, as always happens, other brands that also helps us to choose.
In terms of brands, it is difficult to speak, since everyone has preferences, both in style and attach to the foot, but note that usually Nike made a shoe longer foot more fine, and Adidas takes it to foot more widths, another of the initial brands as asics is also works with cut wider, my advice is to try and rodéis.
But this does not end here much less, we thought that the choose shoes was something as simple as getting the more cool and who everyone looks at them to me but… And that happens with our tread?
In many places, and unfortunately by many “professionals” is heard the typical question that surely have heard: are pronator or supinador? And that we respond to this? As a monologista once said (Leo Harlem) I I’m from Albacete. Nobody has a tread pronation or supinadora when it comes to running, we all need to pass through an intermediate point of the sole of the foot, and why the address is pronosupino or supinopronador, this means that we start stepping with the inner part of the foot, went through a point half and go to the outer zone or finger more side (pronosupino) and vice versa in the other case… “Small plate”… Well as despite being a roll it is important to know our tread to get the right shoes and keep care our ankles and our knees.
And how we can know this? Well one way is a biomechanical tread today already performed in many sports shoes sales shops, study if it is true that make you only if you buy the shoes, but tell you a trick… In the fairs of runners make them for free, pure marketing.
Another way to get to know your tread in a way more home and having good eye is to see where it turns your ball joint when you make the tread, if supporting foot your patella tour inward is that you’re possibly pronator, if it turns out, supinador.
Really the best is to find a Podiatrist or a biomechanical analysis.
What do you think? We investigated over your shoe and you’re telling me?
