Transcript of How to choose your running shoes based

How do you choose your sports shoes? Advertisement Appearance Price My favorite player wear this shose! How about understand your foot first? Is shoes cost 3k really better than one cost 2k? When I step in a court, every one will notice my shoes No matter which sports you play, choosing shoes depending on your knowledge of foot is useful to prevents sports injuries. Foot Arches Concave part of bottom side of the feet
Formed by the tarsal and metatarsal bones
Strengthened by ligaments and tendons

When running, arches absorb the shock feedback from ground, as a natural shock absorber Three kinds of Foot Arches Wet test : common and easy method Normal (medium) Arch Flat (low) Arch High Arch See almost your entire footprint
Your arch collapses inward too much, resulting in excessive foot motion and increasing your risk of injuries
See just your heel, the ball of your foot, and a thin line on the outside of your foot.
Result in too much shock traveling up your legs, since your arch doesn't collapse enough to absorb it

Pronation Normal Pronation
(normal arch) Under-pronation
(high arch) Over-Pronation
(flat arch) normal pronation ~moderate pronation Underpronation pronation ~ normal pronation moderate pronation~ severe overpronation Key word:Stability/Support/Structured cushioning
Provide moderate arch support, focusing on stability
key word:Neutral/Cushioning/Neutral-cushioned
Provide shock absorbing, incresing pronation by stuffing material at the outside of shoes ground. key word : Motion-Control
Provide more solid arch support, focusing on control your running step
(flat arch) Under-pronation
(high arch) Normal Pronation
(normal arch) Potentoial of knee,ankle and muscle strain at the innerside of lower legs
if running on hard ground in long time Lowest injury potential for running under correct running posture Despite muscle strain at out side of lower leg ,due to less absorbing of shock from ground, bones of legs even hipbone are potentially injuried.
