It makes a huge impact in your sports activities about what footwear you are using. Its all between comfort and uneasiness, and the integrity of your foot. One of the common mistake one could make is to buy a pair of shoe on a shoe clearance sale, or just on the casual department store you visit usually. Some may think that shoes are multipurpose, and buying separate shoes for different sports are just a waste of money. Another reason that they buy cheap and generic footwear is because of the stigma that “branded” shoes are expensive just because of the logo or marking. Without the brand, they just sell just like the ordinary ones. There are also big differences with various sport shoes. You can’t use generic training shoe for football and tennis, or use a racing shoe for rock climbing. You can end up with worst foot conditions if you are this type of shoe wearer.
Choosing the appropriate footwear can be time consuming, and with the latest innovations available on the shoes today, comparing the expensive and cheap footwear in terms of the features can be overwhelming. In connection to this, I have written this simple steps in selecting the footwear that is appropriate for the sport youre at to.
Determine your foot type. Foot type plays a major role in selecting the right footwear, because foot type can influence how your footwear will adjust to the stress. For example, in a running shoe, there are three shapes such as straight, semi-curved and curved. If you have an “overpronator” foot, you will have to use a “straight” shoe. Curved shoe is recommended for “underpronator” foot, and semi-curved for the normal or “neutral” foot.
Determine your activity. If your sport is all about running, then you will need a good running shoe, which usually focus on the pronation of the foot and gait. If you are on climbing sports, then you have to make sure your climbing shoes are perfectly fitting, in order to make pressure when climbing off a rock or wall. If you do football, you will need a well fitting pair of boots to prevent pressure on your feet, that can lead to calluses or ingrown toenails.
Checking the right product. Example, the Stinger Elite SRR 103 of Spira Footwear provide its wearer a high level of protection against fatigue associated with most racing shoes; it combines a state of the art WaveSpring technology for impact absorption and efficiency. An athletic shoe made like Nautilus Alloy Lite is also good, because it features a safety toe cap to protect it from impact or compression.
Checking the right store. There are so many sports store online today that offers great deals on footwear. The producer of Stinger Elite footwear, Spira Footwear lets you buy their amazing product at shoebuy.com or at your local shoe store. Nautilus footwear can be bought online, through Gearcor shopping system and accept major credit cards.
Check for style. It does not mean that you have to pay more to get the best footwear. It could be as inexpensive as the all-purpose shoe on the racks, yet it fits your taste and serves the purpose intended. You are not limited or required to shop for a brand, nor shop for price. Just keep in mind that you shop for the function intended and of course its in latest in fashion that you really want.
