Maximizing Your Workouts With the Right Shoes

By Donna Stark

If you are like most people, you probably pay attention to the type of shoes you select when putting an outfit together for work or a special event. And you do this by choosing the pair that is appropriate, comfortable, and stylish, don't you? So, doesn't it make sense to assume your workout shoes would like the same amount of attention? Choosing the right shoe to exercise in is just as, if not more, important as the act of exercising itself! Here's why.

Why Your Choice of Shoes Is Important

Since the wrong pair of shoes can lead to an increased risk of accidental falls, sprains, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and more, it's easy to see why it's important to pick the perfect pair, especially during your rigorous workouts. Check out the following tips from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic on how to make the right choice for all your different fitness routines.

  • Comfort - Make sure the shoes fit the shape of your feet and aren't pinching your heels or squeezing your toes. It's also a good idea to wear the socks you use while exercising when shopping for, and trying on, all the different options at the stores.
  • Activity - There's a reason why there are so many options and styles to choose from. Athletic footwear is specifically designed for each individual activity. From walking to running to hiking to golf, each type of shoe has its own unique characteristics, level of tread, and support.
  • Design - Of course, within each category of shoe type, there are going to be tons of options to consider, too. For example, some shoes are shoelace-free, some are sturdier than others, and some have a higher heel drop. This is where you can select what you like the most.
  • Name brands - Even if you tend to stick with one particular brand, give a few others a try when you are shopping for a new pair. You never know what you could be missing out on!

Maximizing Your Workouts With the Right Shoes

By doing your research and trying on different types of shoes, you can reduce the risk of future injuries and significant damage to your body. Remember, your workouts and your overall well-being is counting on you to make the right choice, so take the time to ask questions and shop around! The perfect pair is out there. It's just waiting for you to find it!
