1. Running conditions
The road is first divided into two types: cross-country and trail running. Cross-country refers to roads that are not artificially constructed, or are not constructed so "good", such as mountain roads, dirt roads, and woods. Trail running includes race tracks, roads, etc., which are very straight. Plastic, cement, and asphalt are all counted.
2. Running posture
This is the most important step, and it is also the least easy to make mistakes. If you make a mistake, you may spend hundreds of thousands of running shoes on and run for a day, and you might die. There are three general running postures, valgus, varus, and severe varus. These three are continuous and progressive relationships.
Eversion-high arch-no splayed foot or inner splay-corresponding running shoes: shock absorber type
Varus (insufficient valgus)-no splayed foot or splayed splay-middle and low arches-corresponding running shoes: stable type
Severe varus-typical flat feet-severely outside character-corresponding running shoes: posture correction type
Most people have valgus or varus, and shoes with severe valgus are hard to buy.
3. Foot shape judgment
You can take off your socks to judge the foot shape, but this judgment is inaccurate. Those with high arches may also be valgus, and those with low arches may also be inverted. A 100% accurate judgment requires a professional machine to determine the running posture, or an experienced person to see your posture while running.
Another 100% accurate method requires you to find a pair of running shoes without posture correction, including shock-absorbing running shoes, marathon shoes, etc., run to severe wear, and then judge the wear. Shoes that clearly do not have posture correction include Dovey's marathon shoes and double-star sneakers. If you run with these shoes, you can look at the forefoot. If the front sole is ground on the outside (side of the little toe), it is valgus, and if it is on the inside (side of the big toe), it is inversion. If the two sides are basically the same, and seem to be worn badly in the middle, you can try both shock-absorbing and stable running shoes.
Consider the shock-absorbing type as the main force of the high arch, and try the stable type as the main force of the low arch. Try the stable type as the main force of the low arch and also try the shock-absorbing type.
4. The amount of equipment
The amount of equipment is a collection of two concepts: weight + exercise intensity.
The greater the weight and the higher the exercise intensity, the greater the impact of running. Weight represents the strength of a single impact, and exercise intensity represents the extent to which the impact will last. Running is almost equal to being beaten on your knee, how heavy each time you are beaten, and how long you have been beaten each time.
Generally speaking, good running shoes are designed to be able to cope with a single exercise of more than 3 kilometers and more than 3 times a week. Running shoes can generally be divided into two equipment weight classes, lightweight and heavyweight.
The large number of grades is designed "for" heavy weight, which means that if you are not weighed enough, your running impact may not be strong enough, then these "top models" designed to absorb high impact elastic materials appear too hard. For the runners, the obvious feeling is: the soles are so hard! In this case, the energy absorbed by the running shoes is not enough, and your knees have to absorb more energy.
So, try to choose the equipment weight according to your own weight, don't just stare at the top models. The boundary between the heavy equipment weight class and the light equipment weight class is generally 75 kg. If your weight is close to this line and the running distance is large or small, it is best to choose flexibly according to your own situation.
New runners should pay attention to: sun block feet, rest running shoes
