Sometimes we forget about the kind of trainers we should wear when we exercise, and that is a very important matter. Frequently, we are guided for big brands and their own products which are great, but they are not always suitable for the sport we practise, or the type of feet we have. The wrong pair of shoes can injure your feet. This post may help you to decide what trainers are more suitable for you depending on the exercise you do. However, do not forget to pop in one of the footwear specialized stores where their trained staff can help you identify the right shoe for you.For jogging or runningFor those who prefer running, they should use a specialized shoe designed to protect your joints while you run. So good shock absorption is what you need to look at. On the market you can find two different types of outsole that provides traction and flexibility.Carbon rubber: most running shoe outsoles are made of this compound which last longer. It is heavy and rigid, but offers more stability to the foot.Blown rubber: running shoes made with this compound are lighter, softer and more flexible. It provides a better protection to your joints thanks to its air-injected rubber. Blown rubber shoes are popular for aerobics.
