I was just reading WIRED about the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4 and how it helped runners gain a competitive advantage.
Naturally, a shoe cannot make up for training, but it can give them an edge against their competitors.
Finding the right shoe can be challenging.
Here's some things to consider when looking for a shoe:
1. The height of the arch of the foot
2. Does the foot roll out or roll in during the strike phase?
3. Does one or both legs rotate out in the swing phase?
4. Where on the foot does it hit the ground?
5. Is there any discomfort after running for a distance?
