Running seems to be making a comeback these days. Not that it ever really went away, but there’s no doubt that running has suddenly become cool. And, hey, that’s a good thing. It sure is a lot better than thinking smoking is cool. But because of its popularity, a lot of people are jumping into the running game without knowing much about it. And when you’re not really prepared to start training, chances are you’re going to end up getting injured. It’s a pretty terrible outcome: You finally started exercising again and bam — you’re sidelined.
So, before you start running, you have to get to know your feet. Sure, you can dig up your old sneakers from the 1980s and hit the treadmill, but we don’t suggest it. A lot of common running injuries — especially ones involving your knees — can stem from improper footwear. Don’t let that happen to you. The first step is learning about pronation, overpronation, and supination. Pronation is actually pretty simple: It’s just the flattening of your arch when you walk or run. But most people don’t pronate the way they should. Some overpronate — the foot rolls in too much — or supinate — the foot rolls outward too much — and, if you’re not wearing shoes that help to correct these motions, the rest of your body won’t be too happy with you. Check your current pair of running shoes — Are the soles worn down on the inside of the foot or on the outer edge? That should be your first clue as to the way your foot is pronating.
This Friday, we’ve decided to make your lives just a little bit easier. Here are our favorite Nike running shoes for each category.
1. FLYKNIT LUNAR, $160
If you’re lucky and your feet are neutral (as in they function the way they’re supposed to, which is rare), then Nike’s FlyKnit Lunar is a great way to go. They provide enough support for your feet but are exceptionally light as well.
2. AIR MAX +, $180
Unfortunately, Nike doesn’t have a specific design for those who supinate, but a pair of Air Max shoes provides adaptive support, making it a good fit for those whose feet roll outward.
3. Lunarglide +4, $110
And, finally, a pair of shoes for those who overpronate. Overpronation is really common — much more common than supination — and all running companies sell shoes that are designed for extra support. Nike’s Lunarglide is a great way to go: They’re more stable than ever before, but they’re also exceptionally lightweight. It’s a perfect combination.
