Saucony Guide 9
Running offers an individual, usually no matter their environment, a means of cardiovascular activity that improves health, decreases high blood pressure and improves skin tone. Another advantage to choosing running as your physical activity type is that running requires minimal equipment. Running really only requires a proper pair of running shoes. When trying on running shoes the majority of people simply look for a comfortable shoe that offers decent cushioning throughout the bottom line of the shoe. Stability isn’t always considered when looking for running shoes. Stability and support are very important in running shoes because this is what will not only help avoid injury but will also help with the alignment of the foot. When a foot properly fits in a shoe and the proper stability is available to the foot, the step is a lot more natural for the runner. A natural step allows the runner to step down with proper alignment and makes each step much easier for the runner. This allows the runner to focus on other aspects of the run and it also helps avoid rolled ankles. Proper stability will also improve the performance of the runner due to less drag and correction. Overall, though the comfort of the runner is important it is also very important to consider the level of support and stability offered in order to get the most out of the product you, as the runner, are purchasing.
