Asics Shoes as the Current Best Trainer on the Market!
Running shoes support your feet and help to cushion surface impact. The right shoes for your body and running style can further minimise risks. Select shoes that fit how you run and where you train.
There are different varieties of footwear designed to support each type of arch—high arch, flat, or average. Determining which type of arch support is most appropriate for you can improve your athletic performance.
ASICS carries a wide variety of running shoes that feature extra cushioning and support. These shoes can help stabilise runners that have supination and overpronation.
Things to Consider in Buying Asics Shoes
1. Things to consider for improved stability
Stabilisation support is a critical lower body health need. ASICS FrontRunner member Łukasz Kłos explains that having the correct pair of running shoes with arch support can “prevent overloading of the calf and hip joint. They allow you to maintain the appropriate pelvic balance in people who have problems with flat feet and overpronation [as well as] prevent functional differences in limb length”.
2. Things to consider for supination
Supinators require shoes that provide more cushioning to disperse the impact when their feet make contact with the running surface. Consider looking for running shoes that feature FLYTEFOAM™ technology , FLYTEFOAM PROPEL™ technology, or AMPLIFOAM™ technology, which are lightweight and have resilient cushioning foam materials.
3. Things to consider for overpronation
Overpronation occurs when a runner lands on the outside area of their heels, rolling most of the weight towards the inner edge instead of the ball of their feet. To help with this issue, consider looking for running shoes with additional support to help improve your performance.
4. Things to consider for cushioning and support
For more cushion and arch support, you’ll maybe want to consider a pair of running shoes that offer better stability. The GEL-KAYANO™ 28 shoe could be an option to keep in mind if you’re looking for a more stable shoe. The TRUSSTIC™ system within these shoes can benefit your stride.
5. Things to consider for plantar fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is an issue that can cause a lot of discomfort for runners. It’s generally said that, to improve your performance if you can consider finding running shoes that provide additional support within the heel area of the foot. In doing so, you could be more comfortable in completing your session without the aches and pains plantar fasciitis can bring.
