The Different Types of Training Shoes

Hello everybody! A couple of days ago I decided to get rid of my old training shoes and get a new pair. I found out that I should chose a cross training shoe because I wanted to wear them while walking my baby or running errands. There are many type of shoes you can choose from so I thought it would be a great idea to share with you some of the things I just found out myself.

Shoes that are designed for sports are specially made to help sportsmen and women perform better for the specific requirements of any given sport. As a result, there are many different training shoes available. Sometimes, the choice can feel overwhelming.
Whilst training shoes, like most sporting attire, are relatively expensive, they need to be replaced fairly regularly to ensure the shoes are providing athletes with optimum support and helping them perform at the maximum level.
If you want to embark on a particular sport, or are unsure what shoes are right for you, you may want to look at these different types of training shoes, each of which are specially designed to help you perform your best for a variety of different sporting activities:

Cross Training Shoes
Cross training shoes are often sturdier than a traditional walking shoe, and provide a degree of stability, cushioning and comfort to athletes who want to get involved with a variety of different sports.  
Cross training shoes, including many in the Fred Perry trainers range, are suitable for anyone looking for a shoe that provides adequate support for a whole range of sports including running, cycling and walking. Cross training shoes tend to be suitable for leisurely activities as well as everyday wear.

Walking shoes
Compared to running shoes, walking shoes need to have greater flexibility in the toe area as this will enable your foot to roll to the ground with each step, instead of being abruptly slapped down.
Walking trainers should also let your feet breath so it is desirable to have a lightweight pair of shoes with perforations to allow air to get to your feet.

Running shoes
As running places a fair demand on a runner’s feet, ankles and knees, it is important that you wear a decent pair of running trainers to optimise your performance and help prevent injury.
Buying a pair of well cushioned running shoes that have the correct arch fit for your feet will help provide maximum comfort and support as you run. It is recommended that you change your running shoes every 500 miles.
