Choosing sports shoes

Due to the increase of unconsciousness on the part of many teenagers and some adults, we are obliged to draw attention to parents and adults who are realizing the importance of this issue.
In recent years, practitioners of physical activity we have observed a lack of concern, when:
1, sports shoes RIGHT CHOICE.
2 nd properly use appropriate footwear.
25 years ago, those who practiced sport, we could choose between four or five types of shoes. That was what I had, and so we had to make do. Fortunately today, and according to all professionals, we can choose depending on the sport shoe that we carry, each brand has several models for a specific sport, so the aesthetic factor comes into play, and we can choose a model for Pie Greek (where the index finger is the longest toe) or Egyptian Pie (where the big toe is the longest in the foot. This is the most common), so one can use a Greek foot walking shoe for Egyptian but not vice versa. Pronator foot (foot predisposed to exaggerate the tilt movement in the ankle) and Foot supinated (ankle to the leg has an arched position out). We must consider if our foot is Dig (may cause fasciitis (tissue irritation of the foot) and tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon) in the Achilles tendon) V something (a lot of flexibility makes suffer the anterior tibial muscle). In short, we have a wide range to choose from.
The problem arises when the shoes are not buckled, buttoned wrong, loose, with the tongue twisted coming to cause involuntary movements of the foot inside the shoe and can cause rupture or turn detachment of the fascia plantar or dorsal and dislocated tendon, ligament injuries (ligament lateral peroneal and tibial ligament), bone injuries (dislocations and subluxations) and the famous ankle sprains, so common and so many problems occur mainly in adolescence, where a once suffered, often heal poorly and lead to chronic or lax ligaments sprains.
This does not mean we have to wear shoes so tight that we cut off the circulation, if we press too, can get blood clots or hematomas appear as tie our shoes after, exercise and foot will expand, thereby increasing foot pressure and muscular pain and possible loss of fibers at the musculotendinous.
Going a little technical, when you exercise, the mechanical loads that arise, they will have a direct effect on the foot, and if exercise intensity is too high, you can get loads cause musculoskeletal injuries (structures bone, ligament, tendon and muscle). That's when sports equipment, particularly footwear, avoid these injuries occur, because if we keep a tight shoes to our needs and characteristics, we will protect ourselves from these risks.
As mentioned before, gone are those days when we had three models such as "brick" to choose from, now the technical and research, has led to sports brands to develop technological wonders provide, greater security, greater convenience and performance. Elements such as air mattress, air chamber, the torque system, the system or the system TRAXION Hexalite and viscoelastic materials are developed for technology to help our sport needs.
First, clarify, not to frighten anyone, they are not necessary shoes € 150 for sports, but unfortunately, they often go hand in hand, the quality and price, but you can find shoes for less than 60 € you are correct solutions, and an important fact, if we use sneakers for walking, what if you think the wheels of a car to go through the fields, which are not appropriate, and although able to move, end up breaking them, and yet must be think that the right shoes and good that we bought last year, are likely to have the soles so worn that they are as dangerous as a shoe inadequate.
1 st choice of sport: As already mentioned, there are specific shoes for each sport or physical activity, so buy the shoe that best suits what you do. Above all, the type of soil you tread slippers. There are also shoes called "Training", which are shoes mixed with off-road use, are valid for all but it is better not to play football with them. Eye to the shoe called " Casual "or leisure, this shoe (which also usually quite expensive) or shoes" sporty "that are used for non-sports daily, is more fashionable than sporting needs are the least suitable for sports. Comfortable and thick, are designed to go for a walk, but not for sports. If used for that, are more dangerous to wear shoes, because we will not ask about shoes, which have the grip, the subject, flexibility and cushioning of a shoe, so do not expect those features of them, but we think that these shoes (Casual or Leisure), do have these characteristics, but not, we put them, we go to play sports or just running with them and from there, they can start many serious problems .
2 nd CHOICE TYPE: The feet are all different, some have foot pronator (more common, you must have the spurs more rigid and extended forward along the inner edge, and the use of wedges Supination as an extreme measure), other supinator (not measures need strengthening, but as the foot more rigid, you will need more cushioning, as it is a worse foot), also other flat foot, cavus other, and so on. In addition, it will take the shoe, can be male, female (think mostly joint mobility, greater elasticity and a small narrow feet), child (who are growing and will have to leave some extra space to avoid compression), you can measure or weigh anything, and are data to consider. Many brands offer specific shoes for a specific sport and standing configuration specifies, for example, continuous running, the heel supports three times the body weight on each support, so that a shoe with cushioning, is the type Ideally, we should pay particular attention to the damping, especially if the practitioner is overweight or soil on which to practice are hard, such as asphalt or concrete. Some cameras use sports brands of air or viscoelastic gel as well as materials that provide extra cushioning, but we must not overdo this, as if we are too muffled, we will not have good sensation and perception of where we stand, and can remedy be worse disease. In general, try to use common sense (which as some adolescents show, is the least common of the senses). The sole is very important, because in natural terrain soles with deep grooves choose to allow the matter (hopefully land) that we tread can be disposed properly ( if we stepped on something unpleasant as it sounds like a joke, try not to scratch the shoe on the ground as if possessed, and that by doing extra strength on a small part, can damage the shoe. Water is the best solution), asphalt, wood or synthetic material, the grooves may be less deep, and grass fields or similar blocks (rubber or aluminum) are the most recommended. So you must go to a doctor to determine which foot we have (some professionals, can be determined at the same stores), and depending on that choice.
3 º PRICE OF THE SHOES: We must have a budget, although the choice, it is better to spend more money on shoes, as in the rest of the outfit (which is not that important, but secondary) to from 80 € you can find shoes last generation, high quality, but for 45 € you can buy some shoes that meet the minimum requirements.
4 º AESTHETICS: Obviously this depends on the taste of each. And the cane (heel height) depends on the type of sport and state of the ankle. The high cane, is fundamentally unique to basketball practice, protects sprains, but instead limits the mobility of the ankle and has a negative effect on performance.
5 º FINALLY TIME FOR THE TRUTH: Once the five or six pairs we have (that we like, we can afford them, are suitable for our sport and specific to our foot) will see that the inside is soft and has no seams that we may cause abrasions or scratches. The base where the heel goes, must be sufficiently large and cushioning the impact. The sole, which should be soft enough to grip and hard enough, we're not going to leave "shoe" on the slopes. Keep in mind that the shoes used in a specific sport practice, we should use to go down the street.
We tested them with the type of sock that usually use for sports, preferably in the afternoon or after a walk of 20 minutes, because the foot is dilated enough for all the daily grind, and we walk around the store with it at least 5 minutes and of course the two slippers, or is that case are we going to practice their chosen sport on one leg?, prove half size of ours to check and make sure that comfort is well-shod heel that the toe is not mounted to the other and that these can be moved (about a centimeter between the thumb and toe), ideally, is a bigger size room we use normally. The size is crucial, is the shoe that should fit the shape of the foot and not the other way as well add to this, that the use of seamless socks ( unfortunately more expensive ) will prevent abrasions and scratches on physical activity.
Once checked everything and met all our requirements, we have the appropriate shoes for us, but keep in mind that if you so abrocháis wrong, all these precautions are worth absolutely nothing and you can also do harm. This buckling, it should be positioned on the instep, to prevent the foot volume increased with exercise, tendon injury surface area also should be firm, but not prevent proper blood circulation.
