Hints About Training Shoes

I dedicate this to my friend Bob at the store.  He helps me when I need shoes and he reads my site on a regular basis – hello!

  • The upper level should allow for breathing
  • The collar should depress above the heel so it could not damage the Achilles tendon
  • Heel counter should stabilize the heel.
  • Toe area should be protected, but it should give room for movement
  • Mid sole should provide support for shocks or hefty movements – Bob gave me a book on this, but I am trying to keep this short!
