To walk in the best conditions, it is advisable to purchase a pair of spira shoes for plantar fasciitis that are comfortable and that are specifically designed for running! That way you avoid: blisters, sprains and other injuries.
When you walk, your foot slides a few millimeters, sometimes even an inch forward. If you fit a pair of shoes, make sure that your toes do not bump into the front of the shoe … otherwise, you may get blisters and black nails! There must be a space of an inch between your toes and the tip of the shoe. Your running shoes will therefore usually be a size larger than your normal shoes.
Someone who weighs 60 kg does not choose the same model of shoes as someone who weighs 90 kg. Did you know this?
While walking, your body must take up about three times your body weight every time your foot hits the floor. The shock wave of that impact runs from the heel to the top of the spine. The joints act as shock absorbers, but they are put to the test. A good pair of running shoes is therefore essential to absorb the shocks and spread the vibrations.
That is why, when you weigh more than 80 kg, you must attach great importance to shock absorption. Preferably choose a midsole made of firmer foam and an additional shock absorption technology at the height of the heel and forefoot.
Your shoe must be adapted to the surface you are walking on. When walking on the road, shock absorption is very important, because it is on this type of surface that shoes wear the most. If you walk on paths and unpaved terrain, choose good support for the foot and a ribbed sole that is adapted to natural obstacles.
Every runner has his own way of running. The best way to determine your foot roll is to see how the sole of your running shoes wears out. If you do not have running shoes on which you can see the wear of the outsole, we recommend that you consult a podiatrist who can determine your walking style.
During exertion, your foot swells and after more than 30 to 45 minutes of walking your shoes start to pinch. So buy your running shoes preferably in the evening, when your feet are more swollen.
Do not wait until you have injuries to replace your running shoes. You can do about 1000 kilometers with it. For lighter shoes you charge a maximum of 500 kilometers (specific models for competitions).
Good luck with your training!
