Buyin Running Shoes For Flat Feet Women


Even if you have flat feet you can still enjoy running.

It is important for every runner to wear well fitted running shoes. Those with flat feet need to be even more careful when choosing running shoes.

When runners have flat feet they usually have ankles which twist inward and this will put extra stress on the knees. For this reason a runner with flat feet needs shoes with stability which will prevent the arches from flattening and the ankles from turning inward.

One way to determine if you have flat feet is to wet your feet and step on a towel. If the print of your feet does not have a decent inward curve in the middle chances are good that you have a problem and may want to consider stabilizing shoes.

If you are planning to purchase a new pair of running shoes and you have flat feet you should visit a specialized running store. There you will be able to try shoes by actually running on a treadmill.

In addition to stabilizing shoes you may want to consider exercises to strengthen your feet such as picking up marbles with your toes. This exercise can help promote the foot to stabilize whether or not you have flat feet.
