PRLog - Jan. 9, 2013 - LOS ANGELES -- The top site for runners (marathon and non-marathon)
Branded shoes aren’t always the answer according to The Runner Advisor, but the understanding of pronation defined as “the rolling of the foot from heel to toe through the foot strike” can help. The Running Advisor recommends that runners should determine their pronation level to enable them to purchase the best shoes suited for their feet. They suggest checking the arch height in order to determine the pronation. Taking this step will ensure a better fitting running shoe for the avid runner. Running shoes have advanced over the years in design to provide runners with more ankle support, knee support, and arch support. The right running shoe can help to prevent major knee damage.
The Running Advisor offers their site visitors a step-by-step guide on how to select the right running shoe. This recently introduced free advice section covers topics such as pronation, which is the rolling of the foot from heel to toe through the foot strike, and how to determine if the runner has a normal, low or high arch. For example if the curve on the foot is hardly visible this means the runner is most likely flat-footed. In this case the Running Advisor would recommend control running shoes. If the foot has the normal curve (not too high) the Running Advisor would recommend stability running shoes. The runners with high foot curves would be recommended to select the controlled running shoes.
The website also offered this added tip for runners on the market for new running shoes “If you have flat feet (overpronate)
