Which Material Is Best For Running Shoes?
Whether you’ve been inspired by Forrest Gump or maybe those brightly colored running shoes on the latest Instagram fitness guru, making the decision to find the perfect pair of running shoes proves to be a difficult one. At first glance, you’d think the only difference between is color or size. The fact is, running shoes come in a variety of material and shapes.

One major misconception when it comes to running shoes is that there’s a one-size-fits-all solution. Realistically, everyone’s feet are built uniquely, resulting in different shoes required for different people. Those who plan on running will need different shoes than those who are standing all day, as explained in this article on bestwalkingfeet.com. If you happen to have a foot condition, like being flat-footed, it can add an extra layer of complication.

Understanding the makeup of a running shoe is important when you’re considering what to buy.

A running shoe is built in three main parts:
1.The Outsole
2.The Midsole
3.The Upper

upper shoes
The Upper

Holds your foot in place as well as protecting the foot from debris. Typically, they’re made of synthetic leather as well as mesh to allow for breathability. Sometimes the upper section of the shoe is also made in part with reflective material for added safety to the runner.

The Midsole

Arguably the most important part of the shoe, providing cushioning so your feet don’t feel every bump in the road. These tend to be made of either three materials.

1. EVA: The is a lightweight foam cushioning. The vast majority of shoes are being made with EVA.

2. Dual-Density EVA: This is a firmer and slightly heavier version of EVA, beneficial for those who feel like EVA might be too forgiving for them.

3. Polyurethane: This is one of the most durable forms of cushioning. This is also slightly heavier than even Dual-Density EVA.Additionally, there have also been rubber midsoles being developed recently. If none of the above options feel quite right, looking for a quality rubber midsole might be worth your time.

The Outsole

The part of the shoe that has tread for added traction. Typically, you’ll see two different options for your outsole:

1.Carbon rubber: This is an incredibly durable rubber.

2.Blown rubber: This material tends to be more cushioned; although, it’s not nearly as durable as carbon rubber.

To really learn and understand the types of material that you want for your new pair of shoes, it’s important to experience these types of materials in person. While you may think you need the support of a polyurethane midsole at first, you might find that your foot feels more supported and comfortable with an EVA midsole. Take the time to really understand how each material can work for you as well as what feels best. Once you find the correct combination of materials, you won’t regret the time you invested in research.
