Finding the correct running shoes for your Gait.
Wearing the correct running shoes for your walking/running gait can be very beneficial when you are trying to stay injury free.
At Runners Edge Southend we have seen a trend in the ratio of neutral to supportive running shoes sold over the last 15 years with our
research in gait analysis. We've found that over 85% of our customers would benefit from a supportive running shoe with arch support whereas
only 15% run with a neutral gait.
What is the difference between a neutral gait and over pronated gait?
- High arched foot
- Stable ankles/foot
- Straight landing
- Little to none inward rotation
Over Pronated Gait
- Fallen arches
- Flexible ankles
- Mild to severe inward rotation
- Flat foot
