Best Podiatrist-Recommended Running Shoes in 2022

Looking for a new pair of running shoes that are comfortable, durable, improve your stride and reduce the risk of injury?

Dr. Mark J. Mendeszoon, DPM, FACFAS, along with his role as a podiatrist at Precision Orthopeadics, also owns Achilles Running Shop stores. making him an expert in what to look for when buying a new pair of running shoes.

According to Dr. Mendeszon in a recent Men’s Health article titled The 18 Best Pairs of Running Shoes for Men, “the most important factor to consider when purchasing a pair of running shoes is that you are fitted in the proper functioning shoe for your foot type. There are several categories of shoes and a footwear professional from a locally owned running store will lend their expertise to evaluate, select and fit you properly into the best shoe for your foot type and condition.”

Important things to consider when selecting a running shoe’s fit:

• Have both your length and width measured and select the proper sizing
• Select a comfortable footbed and a proper fitting tongue
• Avoid shoes that are too tight or irritating on top of the foot
• Make sure that the Achilles notch of the shoe does not irritate the back portion of your heel
• Select neutral arch support if you have a higher arch or want a lighter performance shoe
• Select supportive arch support if you have feet flattening (pronation) or want more shock absorption
