Brooks Glycerin 16
Not many people know about the different areas of the shoe. The primary aspect of the shoe that runners pay attention to is the fit and the comfort level but there are many different factors and features that go into making a good running shoe. One area that should be paid attention to is the outsole of a runner. The outsole of a runner is the outer most layer of a running shoe. This area surrounds the heel, arch, and ball of the foot and often extends up to the bumper of the shoe (the area of the shoe that protects the toes of the runner). The outsole also offers the tread of the shoe that is meant to provide traction. Traction is important because the surface area of the area grips to the ground and helps the runner move forward. Image standing on ice and attempting to move forward at an increased pace. Assuming the individual on the ice does not fall flat on their face, there will be a great amount of force and energy used in order to move forward without moving forward very quickly. Additionally, there will be a fair bit of movement throughout the pendulum movement of the leg. This is due to the lack of traction that they have between the foot and the slippery surface (ice). Tread offers the individual wearing the shoe to propel forward with less energy, less exertion, and a tighter pendulum movement. Tread and traction help the runner move forward with more ease, as well as with less fatigue and overall improves the runner’s performance overall, hence why the outsole of the shoe is so important.
