How to choose the best shoe for your workout
With so many workout shoes on the market, it may be hard to know if you’re buying the right one.
So, what should you look for?
When looking for a workout shoe, podiatrist Joy Rowland with Cleveland Clinic says it’s crucial to figure out what you’ll be using them for because shoes are built for different activities.
Running shoes should have good shock absorption in the heel and walking shoes should feel cushioned and stable on your feet.
Get fitted at a shoe store if possible.
They will fit you according to the exercise that you’re going to be doing and make sure that the width of the shoe is appropriate for your foot type, that the arch height is appropriate for your foot type.
Dr. Rowland adds it’s important to see a podiatrist if your feet persistently hurt while working out.
