Not all shoes are created equal.

Every running shoe is designed for a specific type of runner. A running shoe is designed to cradle the foot – not just protect it from the pounding, but also to optimize a runner's gait in such a way that a person can run longer and faster without worrying about injury.

The three broad categories that define running shoes (Neutral Cushioning, Moderate Motion Control, and Maximum Motion Control) enhance gait by working with the natural movement of your foot, providing a more efficient stride.

You can determine your foot type with this easy test:
  1. Wet the bottom of your foot
  2. Step onto a brown paper bag (cement also works)
  3. Wait a few seconds to get a clear imprint
  4. Match your imprint to one of the foot types above
