Are you prone to pronation? This is when you run, stand or walk with too much weight on the insides of your feet. Pronation is problematic because the gait pattern established in your feet affects your body all the way up the kinetic chain (The foot bone's connected to the shin bone...) and what happens at your feet, does not just stay at your feet. More simply put: Pronation can cause overuse injuries in other parts of your body other than just your feet.
So, if you run and you pronate, you need to wear a stable shoe. One that keeps your foot aligned and helps inhibit your tendency towards pronation, and I am happy to say I have found a shoe that does the trick splendidly: The New Balance 1010.
This shoe is designed with "Roll Bar" that prevents you from pronating. Plus, they are roomy in the foot box, so they're great if you have wide feet or bunions. The sole is designed to provide optimal shock absorption and you can really feel it with each step. While it might not be the lightest running shoe because it's made for runners with larger frames, it is only 11.9 ounces. What's more? The shoe also breathes well, which means you can put in those long runs and your feet should still stay cool. Buy them from Road Runner Sports for
$109.99 $98.99. Your feet can thank me later.
Fit's Tip: For the best fit, it is recommended that you buy these sneaks at least half a size up.
