Anyone can enjoy the comfort and ease that sneakers provide. However, it is important that one know that there are different types of sneakers and that they vary in fit and comfort.
- Running shoes – This is designed purely for running and have no lateral stability. They are designed to be used moving forward and not really for moving from side to side.
- Walking shoes – These have a thicker and more rigid heel for support as the walking motion involves the foot striking the ground heel first. For casual walking, look for a shoe without a flared sole.
- Cross trainers – This is often looked at as a general-use athletic shoe. It offers lateral support, has a thick sole and has heel support as well. This kind of sneaker is perhaps most useful as a comfortable everyday shoe.
