Best Girls Running Shoes For Flat Feet

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Jogging is one of the best exercises to burnoff those extra calories and lose a bit of weight without having to dip too far into your pocket. In fact, it is fair to say that the most expensive thing you will have to buy is a good pair of running shoes. They will be far cheaper than a year’s membership of a gym or sports center – especially as many of these establishments have a rather odd policy of “Sign Up For Twelve Months – Pay For Thirteen!” Though they do count the extra month’s payment as a so-called “signing-up fee”.

It is very important not to try and make your running experience even more cost effective by rooting around in the closet for that old pair of fashion sneakers you used to wear years ago. They may be cheap, but they will do untold damage to your feet, ankles and knees if you are not careful, and especially if you suffer from flat feet.

Flat feet is a common condition where the arches collapse inwards during your normal walking or running motion. The process that sees your foot land on the ground at the midfoot, rotating slightly inwards as you move more weight onto that foot before pushing off the ground to begin your next stride, is called pronation. Since this rolling process is exaggerated in people with flat feet, you will need to buy a pair of girls running shoes for overpronators.

Don’t worry about having flat feet or the opposite problem of high arches; these are very common afflictions, to the point that running shoe manufacturers have three distinct sets of shoes to cater to each group (the third group being the neutral runners).

Running shoes for overpronators offer more stability and cushioning to protect flat feet from excessive shock when jogging, and can also help to prevent joint problems in the ankles and knees due to the extra stresses put on them when the foot and leg are not aligned properly during exercise. Some of the best shoes in the overpronator category for female runners are the Asics GEL-Evolution, the Saucony Grid Stabil (in the stores look for “ProGrid Stabil”) and the Brooks Addiction models. Talk to the staff in the store; they are normally runners themselves and will be able to offer you advice and other options to suit your own personal taste. It is also a good idea, once you have found a pair that works well, to stick with that model every time you replace them.
