It’s import to match your foot size, width and shape to the sport shoe you’re considering. For example, if you have low arches or you’re flat foot, you should consider a shoe that has a slight upward curve in the front of the shoe. Many find a somewhat flat shoe with middle cushioning quite comfortable, and a good idea when considering longevity. Other designs may not be as comfortable or durable.
The internet will provide you with literally hundreds of choices for buying sport shoes. You shouldn’t have a problem buying the right shoe to match your choice in style, function or performance. Even for those with flat feet. Since The Consumer Report Guide mentioned New Balance as a good shoe, they have managed to maintain a place among the more popular choices for running, cross training and walking shoes. They may serve your purpose in looking for a good sport shoe. Other popular choices are Nike, Adidas, Michael Jordan and Puma. Other companies you can easily spot around the gym are Brooks, Saucony and Asics to mention a few.
Always remember to size your foot so you have a little room in the front of your longest toe, about ? to ? an inch to the front of the shoe. You should have a firm fit in the heal so you don’t have any slippage, nothing too snug as well. Lightweight is found in probably about 80% of the shoes lately. See what they say about breathability and washability. All these factors should be in your general list of considerations when buying sports shoes. Personalize your needs from there.
