Most running shoes are comfortable when we try it in the store. But the real new conditions will be felt when we wear ran a few kilometers. That’s when we just realized that running shoes are right for we are not depending on its brand, but on many things, including where we ran and ran, style form our feet. How do we choose a suitable running shoes? In addition to colors, shapes, and prices, here are a few more important things into consideration before you buy it: the surface of Ran When you are planning on buying running shoes, where you will be using it?
Whether on asphalt road (road), on the top of the machine or treadmill, rocky surface (trail running)? “In choosing running shoes, the surface and place ran should be a consideration. Whether it’s the streets or treadmill, outdoors as well as inside and outside, this affects the choice of the right shoe, “said Welliam Lauw, Manager; Brand Communications & Sports Marketing Adidas PT Indonesia, answering questions via email.
How to choose the right running shoes?
Generally road-running shoes are designed to be worn on the surface flat and hard as asphalt. Shoes-Boots of this type come bearing to dampen clash as well as to make the wearer is stable. While the trail-running shoes are designed to be used on the surface of a rocky, muddy, with various obstacles such as trees and grass roots. These type of shoes equipped anti-slip soles as well as shapes and special materials to give support, stability, and protection of the foot.

The type and Style Run

While the runners who want to improve the strength of the muscles of the legs then Nike Nike free technology delivers, “said Arief Tjakraamidjaja, Country Marketing Manager of Nike Indonesia, contacted via email.
The Shape Of The Foot
The shape of the foot of each person turns out to be different. Some are neutral, at which time step, the part that is stepped on the surface of the sole of the foot is the central part, there is an overpronation, where the soles of the feet tilted toward the inside, and underpronation, where the Palm tilts outwards. Different forms it affects parts of the foot that will collide with the surface, so that the selection of shoes with insoles and pads the right will help.

At this time various producers supply the latest technology that makes the shoes comfortable makin to run, be it from the side materials, weights, and other things.
“To note is a type of upper (upper part), (Bearing) midsole, and outsole (Sol sections below). The three things should be adjusted to the type of runner who also ran the place, kind of a run. The staff at the store Nike shoe selection advice before giving certainly will ask in advance what the needs of the runners, “said Arief Tjakraamidjaja of Nike Indonesia.
