Choosing the right athletic shoes, Health Channel

Fitness junkies have to be careful when they chose the shoes for their activities. Wayne Goldstein, Podiatric Physician at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, says the cushioning is the most important thing to think about.

“The shoe is absorbing the shock and the impact. Look for signs of wear”, he highlights. If you have used that shoe too many times, it is time to change it and buy a new pair.

Goldstein also says people have different foot types and it is useful making sure the shoe is right for your foot type. You always can ask for help in the store.
