What brand of shoes are the best? The brand of shoe isn’t actually the most important factor when considering shoes. It’s whether the shoe style compliments your foot type. For example, if you have a flexible foot and a lower arch, you would likely benefit from a stiffer, more supportive shoe to provide more stability. Conversely, if you have a more rigid foot with a higher arch, you would likely feel best with a more flexible shoe to provide more shock absorption. Selecting appropriate footwear can not only help expedite recovery time from injuries, but also help prevent them in the first place. Want more information?
