Looking to purchase some new sports shoes?
Sports shoes should protect as much as possible, be durable, and should be right for the sport and surface. If running, the shoe should have adequate cushioning in the midsole and a flared heel for stability. Podiatrists can assess an individual’s gait and may prescribe insoles to align the body, providing stability to prevent unnecessary stress to ankles, knees, hip and back. Call our podiatrist/chiropodist, Hilary Rimmer at The Olney Treatment Rooms on 01234 240444.
Specialised sports shoe stores should have sales people who are keen sportsmen and women themselves and who know the sports shoe ranges inside out. Do remember that sports shoes have a shelf-life: the materials will become hard and less shock absorbent, and the glues will become brittle. If two pairs of shoes are purchased simultaneously, they should be used concurrently.
