These days, people are very interested in shoes- the brands, the logos, the designs and all. The mistake many make however, is to wear shoes that don’t match the moment or event. For every season/purpose there is an apprpopriate shoe. Read further to gain insight on the right types of shoes to wear for your walking and jogging sessions.
The single most important piece of equipment in virtually any kind of exercise program , whether it be running, aerobics, hiking, tennis, basketball, walking, or jogging , is the right pair of shoes. A good pair of sneakers can make or break your workout and it’s easy to go wrong.
The first group of shoes are the walking shoes.When it comes to long walks, ladies should avoid high heels and men should stay clear of curved co-operate shoes. Your feet need to be relaxed and stressed free so the ideal walking shoes should be cushioned and have stiff rubber to support the heel. Flat slippers and flat soles really do the trick. Good examples for ladies include flat sandals and plimsolls. For the gents, toms, air max slides, sandals and palms.
The next group of shoes are jogging shoes. These shoes have no lateral stability built into them because you don’t move your feet laterally when you jog. You’re only going forward. A jogging shoe is built to give you support and stability as you move your feet through the jogging gait cycle. So for jogging, you want a shoe that has more cushioning on the forefoot. Examples of brands that manufacture such jogging shoes are Nike, Addidas, Converse, Vans, Air walk and Puma.
People make mistakes when picking shoes for occasions for different reasons. It could be due to haste, a poor sense of dress code, and perhaps even peer pressure. One thing to keep in mind is that the wrong pair of shoes can cause a lot of health issues, ranging from fractures and Achilles heel disorder, to athlete foot, sprains and strains. The feet need to be free. Unnecessary tightening can stop the flow/circulation of blood and this can lead to ischemia.
Go right with the weather and occasion. It is important to wear shoes not just for protection but also for shape.
