    Running Shoe Selection and Running Form

    in Sports

    The Running Shoe Industry does not design shoes that help us perform better and safer; they make shoes based on market research and fashion trends.  Listen as Jay Dicharry PT and gait analyst helps us sort through the confusion of running shoe selection.  The industry served up high heels, heavy cushioned shoes for nearly 30 years. They then did an about face and went minimalist to chase the trend.  Now they have turned back to heavily cushioned shoes.  Clearly we, they or both are sorely confused!  Nothing could be worse for a marathon runner than to shift from one extreme to the other and back again.  Jay Dicharry is one of the most knowledgeable experts in the field of running mechanics today.  This is a great show for all runners to hear.
