Which shoe is for me?

The light at the end of the tunnel is not necessarily an oncoming train.

Walking shoes are stiffer; running shoes are more flexible, with extra cushioning to handle greater impact. If you do both activities, get a pair for each one.

Some models of running shoes look better suited to an evening at the club than a run in the park, but many of the features actually serve a purpose. Allow us to guide you through what each brand offers.

Neutral Cushioned shoes offer very little or no structure or pronation support and are generally more flexible than stability shoes.

Stability shoes feature a posting or firmer foam underneath as a support underneath the arch to prevent the foot from over-pronating. Also known as Motion Control shoes, these shoes are designed for runners who have very low to flat arches that over-pronate excessively. Runners with severe over-pronation tend to see very significant wear on the medial side of the sole of their shoes and often experience shin splints, knee pain, and plantar fascists if they are not wearing the correct shoes for their training.

SAUCONY

In 2015 Saucony introduced EVERUN continuous cushioning into their footwear line. A breakthrough in footwear design, Saucony used a topsole construction to place the cushioning closer to the foot than ever before. This allows runners to reap more benefits from the cushioning, such as more energy return and to reduce pressure on the body through the runner’s stride. EVERUN adapts to your foot in motion. More comfort, less stress- allowing you to run stronger, longer.

saucony Neutral Cushioned

Neutral Cushioned shoes offer very little or no structure or pronation support and are generally more flexible than stability shoes. Runners who require a neutral shoe tend to notice more excessive wear on the lateral(outside) side of the soles of their running shoes. Neutral shoes can vary from lightweight and minimal cushioning to maximum levels of cushioning depending on the needs and preferences of the runner. Runners with high/stable arches tend to notice pain on the outside(lateral side) of their shins and knees and may also battle plantar fasciitis if not wearing a neutral cushioned shoe.
