Running Shoes for Walking?

Yes, a running shoe with the right support and fit will help reduce the discomfort associated with walking.

I am only walking I do not need support for my feet….MYTH!

When we run , we can impact the ground with a force equal to approx 3 to 10 times our body weight depending if you are running uphill, downhill or relatively flat ground.

So? I am walking. When we walk we impact the ground with a force equal to approx 1.5 to 5 times our body weight upon impact with the ground depending upon the pace, incline and surface we are walking on.

Runners‘ Edge takes the time to assess your foot strike, your gait, and measure your foot for length and width. A proper fitting shoe designed to work with your foot will help reduce torsion in the ankle, knee and hips reducing aches and pains especially lower back.
