When it comes to running, a good pair of trainers is probably the most important piece of kit that you’ll ever need. With so many trainers and brands available – Nike, Saucony, Adidas, Asics, Reebok… the list goes on and on. It can often be difficult to know which running trainers to choose and what the best running shoe is for you and your running style.
Everyone runs in a different way, putting their weight onto different areas of the foot as they run and their foot hits the floor. Putting more weight on the inside or outside of your foot can be called over pronating or under pronating (Supination for the more advanced and technical runners amongst us!!) Overpronation or Underpronation when running can cause extra stress on certain muscles in your leg and may even lead to injury without the right pair of running shoes. There are a huge range of running trainers available which will give your foot extra support on the inside or outside of your foot depending on your running style – or gait.
As well as avoiding injury, a good pair of running trainers will help improve your running performance and speed, and will also make your training more comfortable – helping you run faster, for longer!
