Saucony Shadow 6000
Stability isn’t always something that is considered when buying a running shoe. Usually, when we look for a new trainer and try them on, we consider the cushioning, potentially how springy the shoe feels and the weight of it overall. We don’t always consider stability. Stability is vital when choosing a shoe because stability is systemic to a runner’s overall long-term physical condition. Running has incredible benefits to the body including good blood flow, better cardiac function, and better physical health. However, on the other hand, it also has negative effects on the body including damage from constant impact, wears on joints and injury. This is why stability is so important. When a running shoe offers better stability, it will help the wearer’s posture which would, in turn, allow the body to absorb impact better, it will also ensure that the joints aren’t wearing down as quickly and offer less strain on muscles that are out of alignment. It also helps protect the wearer from injury associated with running like a rolled ankle or shin splints. Finally, proper alignment due to better stability offers the wearer a more natural and controlled step which will again help avoid injury, but also enable the wearer to move faster longer due to no unnecessary drag due to less resistance and slippage when in movement. Overall, stability is massively important and should always be considered when trying on new trainers.
