Improper running shoes

by Dr. Neal Blitz

At 55 years old I lead an active lifestyle. I currently live in New York.  I am an avid runner who suffers from foot pain. Is it possible improper running shoes could be causing this problem?

Having the proper running shoes for you foot are very important.  So, to answer your question, yes, your running shoes could be the problem.  Because every foot is different, you should select a running shoe based on your foot type.  Some people who over pronate may benefit from a more stable shoe.  People with flat feet may be more comfortable with an arch support (orthotic).
