Choosing the right running shoe can make a all the difference in whether you stay healthy or become injured running and also determine if you will be comfortable or be in pain while running.

Bargain shopping is the numero uno bigtime mistake made by most novice runners. You run out and by the cheapest pair of running shoes you can find. Trust me, you are not going to find a proper running shoe at Walmart!

Thinking cheap will end up making you quit running due to the sheer misery of having bad shoes. Some of those who are more tenacious may wait until they blow out their knee or have major shin splints before they throw in the towel.

With all the choices and high tech shoes available today, choosing the right pair of running shoes for you can be an arduous task at best. But here are some guidelines to help you.

First you need to understand pronation, which is rolling of the foot from heel to toe through the foot strike. A proper or neutral pronation is hitting the outside of the heel and up to ball of your foot evenly across the front. This is how your foot reduces the stress of impact. 

Underpronation is not enough evening out so the outside of your foot takes most of the shock instead of finishing in the neutral position. 

Overpronation is too much roll across from the outside to the inside of your foot. 

To determine your level of pronation, look at your shoes you walk or run in. Most everyone will begin on the outside of the heel, the real indicator would be the wear on the forefoot. 

If most of the shoe wear is: 

• On the medial (inside) side then you Overpronate 

• On the lateral (outside) side then you Underpronate 

• Uniform across the forefoot then you have a Neutral Stride 

This knowledge will give you the information you know to select the appropriate running shoe for your foot.
