Exercise Shoes To Choose


Are your exercise shoes getting soft and squishy? If itís because theyíre worn out, then itís time to replace them. You could be putting yourself at risk for foot and ankle injuries, if those comfy old shoes of yours arenít giving you good support or donít properly absorb the shock of pounding the pavement.

When your exercise involves walking or running on a hard surface for more than twenty miles a week, experts recommend you get new shoes every two or three months. If youíre doing less mileage on softer surfaces, you should replace your shoes every six months.

For walking, itís best to buy low heeled, flexible running shoes, because their design is usually years ahead of those made for walking and they offer stronger support. Another good tip is to shop later in the day when your feet are more swollen. Youíll get a much better fit.

Always try on both the left and right shoes of several models and be sure to lace them up fully and walk around the store. Look for the feeling of comfort first. Donít ever buy exercise shoes for style or with the thought that youíre going to have to ďbreak them in.Ē

If youíre doing a lot of walking, buy yourself two pairs of shoes and switch them off on a daily basis. They keep their shape a lot longer when you give them a chance to air out between walks.

And, after a few workouts, if you fall in love with how your new shoes feel, run right back to the store and get yourself a couple more pairs of the same model. Shoe companies are constantly changing styles and it can be terribly frustrating going back later to find that your favorite shoe was discontinued and youíre going to have to start all over again from scratch.

Exercise is very important to your overall health and the shoes you use can make or break your routine. So, be sure youíre careful and conscientious when choosing shoes.
