Here are a couple of quick tips to help you get the most out of your workout shoes.
It’s important to choose the right shoe for the right workout. One way to hurt yourself is to use the wrong shoe for the wrong sport. It’s not a good idea to regularly go running in tennis shoes. Tennis shoes are built to support your foot while playing tennis and running shoes are built to help you run.
Another common mistake people make is to wait too long to throw away their shoes. Just because the shoe looks okay from the outside doesn’t mean you should keep using it – when all the foam and cushiony stuff that supports your foot degrades it’s time to toss those shoes.
