    I think that no matter which type or fitting of shoe you get I think that it needs great cushioning and maybe even consider putting a gel or pad insert into your shoe so that your feet stay in shape. When I put an insert in my shoe I started enjoying my runs/walks more. Which type of shoe do you use and do you run or walk more?

      Hello, Jon and thank you.

      There are some crucial factors to have in mind when you buy shoes. I can name factors like upper, Ankle Collar, Heel Counter, outsole and midsole, toe box and Heel Cushioning to name few.

      All of these are very important for your performance, enjoying and even health because shoes today are made with your body in mind. How they can let you feel better, if you have this or that problem you need to have this and that in the shoes. I wrote an article about it which you can see here.

      Through the time I have both run and walked. I believe it is good for your body to change something and both methods are excellent for you. But most of the time I have used trail running shoes.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Hello. 

    I made my service in the army for 9 months and they taught heel-to-toe drop, but I never really mastered it. It is a matter of putting the whole process in the subconscious so it becomes automatic.

    But it certainly helps to make less effort and more progress in your running.

    If someone is running 3-4 days a week (about 5-7 miles), how much time is recommended before making a change?

    Well, I ask this because like the toothbrush which doctors suggest you change every 3-6 months, maybe there is a recommended usage for the shoes too. (9 months in the army doesn’t qualify me to be an expert so I ask out of curiosity).

    Thanks for this informative article. Had fun reading it. Take care

      Hello, George and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      The heel to toe method has been used a lot in sports, for example in athletics and soccer. You get more speed with less energy and use the body as well as possible.

      There are some factors which affect when you should change the running shoes. Like where you run etc. The thumb rule is 300 to 500 miles. But it is not good to use old shoes even so you have not used it much as it has an effect on the material in it. But I can admit that I use my shoes a little bit longer than this miles, not much longer but longer.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Hello; Does the running shoes come with any form of spikes? The truth I had not notice the difference in running versus walking shoes, it is good that I come upon your post that teaches me that there is a difference, with walking shoes and the running shoes.

     I always take my teenagers to store the choose what they want I pay the bill. Do continue to give us information.
