About nike running shoes

look at it like nike running shoes is kind of strong but relaxed – that’s strained. So that strain is in the plantar fascia, the part underneath your foot. So when you land on your heel, you’re unstable, and you land and your plantar fascia are fully extended, they’re in a weak position when they’re trying to contract. Think of it like your bicep. Your bicep is weaker here, stronger here. Same thing with your foot: It’s weaker here, stronger here. So land on your heel, it adds all that extra force, it makes you unstable, and it puts your plantar fascia in a bad position. Otherwise, it’s awesome. Now, some of you might say, “But wait, but wait – I need pronation control.” Okay, hold that thought. Here we go. Let me just look at this part right here: “Be aware that all runners pronate or drop the foot inward. Pronation is a normal foot motion during walking and running. Pronation alone should not be a reason to select nike running shoes. Runners may be told while shopping that because pronation is occurring, a shoe with arch support is best.” And not just arch support, they like post this part of the shoe to try to keep you from pronating. In fact, the opposite may be true. Pronation should occur. It’s a natural shock absorber. Stopping pronation with materials in the nike running shoes may actually cause foot or knee problems to develop. Excessive pronation can occur, and I’ll say something about that, but in most cases it can be corrected with therapy and exercises to strengthen the foot, leg and hip, rather than buy a shoe. Benno Nigg did a great bit of research on this showing how your foot wants to just move naturally and if you add pronation control it actually can cause your muscles to overwork in ways that they’re not designed to, and I know other people have researched this as well. But this idea that you need pronation control, look, if you pronate or someone told you you pronate, I’m betting the person who told you was either a doctor who was about to prescribe an orthotic for you or a shoe salesman who was about to prescribe a more expensive shoe with a bunch of pronation control. Again, all the research is pretty clear – pronation is not a problem. It’s a made-up condition like, oh, just think of all the drugs that were made up to cure problems that didn’t exist until they had a drug to cure it. It’s the same kind of thing here. Something to keep in mind. And let me show you another thing. Wait, what’s this about pronation control? “Excessive pronation can occur, but in most cases can be corrected.” Let me talk about one thing that can cause excessive pronation. Let’s take a look at this nike running shoes. So look at how flared this sole is. Look at how far out—here, I’m going to draw this again. So here’s the flare of the sole, here’s the flare on the heel of the sole, and your heel is actually going to rest right about here. So what this means is that when you’re wearing this shoe and you’re typically going to land sort of slightly on the outside edge of your foot normally, you’re going to hit way further out than the actual outside edge of your foot, and because these soles are typically stiff along this curve— nike running shoes is going to flatten out my curve drawing in a second. Oh, it didn’t. Good. What that means is you’re going to hit this edge and it’s going to make your foot slam to the ground faster. It’s going to pronate faster. So that’s hyperpronation, which can send a vibration all the way up your leg and that can be problematic. So ironically, the shoe with stability control can often be causing the problem. In fact, if you put this extra density stuff right here, that’s designed to control the pronation that’s being caused by this edge of the shoe over here. So it slams you down, but then and this is trying to protect it and keep it from moving. And all of that is because if you land on your heel, you’re on an unstable surface. But again, this is in the forefoot, this line over here. This heel flare is in the forefoot and midfoot. Let me find another image, like this one. Here you can see the amount of flared out space of the heel—why’d it do that? Oh, do it this way. You can see that how far out the sole goes compared to where your foot goes, so that edge is hitting first, which causes your foot to hyperpronate, to pronate too quickly. That can be problematic. Okay, let’s just take a look at a few things. Oh, I love this. “Where can you look for nike running shoes? Check in with a local running club and ask the leadership there where their members commonly purchase shoes or where merchants have a knowledgeable staff who have expertise with nike running shoes.” Good luck, because most of the people who are going to be trying to sell you shoes have learned all of these things from shoe companies about why for example—so let’s go back here—why for example you need all this padding, why for example you need all this heel lift, why you need this toe spring, why you need this flare, why you need all of this motion control and support. Most of the people that you’re going to be meeting at a nike running shoes store—most stores—will be telling you, again, the exact opposite of everything that’s in here in the ACSM report. So finding a knowledgeable staff is going to be really challenging. You bring this paper to them and they will argue with you about how you’re wrong. They don’t have research to back it up. They just learned it from shoe company guys who are selling them their padding, their motion control, their stability, their support. Okay, so here’s something. “How to buy a nike running shoes: Every time you shop, have your feet sized at the store.” It’s amazing. Your left and right foot may be a different size, of course. Your feet will change shape over time. If you start using your feet, if you start engaging that arch, you can find that your foot gets shorter because your foot is being naturally pulled up by the stronger muscles, ligaments and tendons that are now in your body. So you definitely want to measure repeatedly. Don’t be married to a size. Shoe sizes are different between different brands. Sometimes, even within a brand, one product might fit one way and another product might fit a different way. So just find what fits. Don’t worry about the size thing. “Foot shape or arch height are not good indicators of what kind of nike running shoes to buy.” In other words, just because you think you have a flat foot or a high arch, that doesn’t tell you what to buy. There’s no correlation between having a flat foot or a high arch and a specific shoe.
