The agony of choice – proper running shoes
Running shoes have to be large enough and need to offer a high stability. Long-distance running shoes should at least offer 1.0 to 1.5cm from the big toe to the toe cap: our feet often swell since the blood supply of the feet is higher while running. So your running shoes might pinch if they are too small and narrow.
Depending on the running habits and preferences, runners have a special route on a certain ground, but different grounds involve a different load on the joints and this load is not to be underestimated. At a distance of a single kilometre your feet touch the ground up to 300 times and have to cushion the multiple weight of your body. This makes it clear that the selection of proper running shoes is highly important in order to avoid injuries of your joints, e.g. your knees. We demand high standards of running shoes: they are supposed to ideally support your feet and provide optimum cushioning. Therefore, running shoes fall into different groups – neutral running shoes, trail running shoes, stability shoes, and natural running shoes – so you can select proper running shoes more easily. Various manufacturers have specialised in different technologies used for the production of shoes. Regardless of the brand you prefer, our online shop has a broad range of running shoes designed by Nike or On Running, but also adidas Performance shoes and Asics running shoes can be found in our running shoes category.
Apart from the features mentioned above, the design of running shoes also depends on the runner’s sex and weight. A female foot normally is narrower than a male foot of equal size; running shoes for women, therefore, have a narrow style. The weight of the runner is decisive for the degree of cushioning: heavy runners need shoes with sophisticated cushioning. Apart from that the foot roll-over differs between men and women which has an effect on the construction of the sole. No matter what features you demand of running shoes, at the Schuhdealer online shop you can easily order shoes and have them delivered home.
