Two Shoes That Will Give You A Comfortable Run

You can't run well if you're uncomfortable. Here are two shoes that promise superior comfort without sacrificing performance.

Nike Lunarglide - This is one of the most comfortable shoes I've run in. It has a secure fit around the heel and over the arch, and is spacious in the toe box. The upper materials feel soft and seamless on the inside. It has quite a bit of cushion for being so light weight, at 10.7 ounces for men's size 9 and 8.7 ounces for women's size 7. The shoe offers exceptional stability that only engages when you need it, so it is idea for both over pronators or neutral runners. Medium to light weight runners will receive adequate cushion and support for middle to long distances. Heavier runners should limit this shoe to middle and short distances. If you have flat feet the shoe might not provide enough support.

Puma Complete Vectana - Puma has made a name for itself ever since picking up athletes like Usain Bolt, the world's fastest man. Although the Vectana doesn't promise to make you as fast as him, it does promise an extremely comfortable ride. It has a thick layer of soft foam to cushion your feet on the longest of runs. Puma has also packed on extra cushion in the heel to absorb the initial impact at heel strike. With a fore foot that curves up, it provides the runner with a smooth heel to toe transition. It's not a very light shoe like the Lunarglide, but it's also not a very heavy shoe. It weighs 12.7 ounces in men's size 9 and 10.7 ounces in women's size 7. It has above average support, and is appropriate for moderate to severe over pronators. The shoe is best for medium to heavy build runners.

Jazz Shoes - What To Consider Before You Buy

When you come to choose a pair of jazz shoes, you’ll find that there’s a whole host of different styles. Before you choose, you should first check whether your dance teacher recommends a particular type. If so, then stick with this recommendation, but if you’re free to make the choice yourself, here are a few things to consider.

You should first decide what fabric you want your shoes to be made from. They’re mainly available in leather and canvas. Leather is usually the more expensive option so if you’re just starting out it’s best to choose a pair made from canvas. This means if you decide you don’t enjoy dance classes, you haven’t overspent on an expensive pair. However, if you’re confident that you’re going to love dancing, or you have more experience, you should consider spending that little bit extra on leather jazz shoes, as they’re much harder wearing and likely to last a great deal longer than canvas.

When choosing the style, you also need to choose the best fit. This is very important if you are to get the most enjoyment out of dancing. A well fitting pair of jazz shoes should feel nice and snug on your foot though they shouldn’t feel too tight. You should be able to move your toes around a little and also comfortably bend and flex your foot. Your toes shouldn’t be pushed up against the end of the shoe but equally, if the shoe can move around on your foot and feels loose, then it’s a good idea to try the next size down.

Buying a good pair of jazz shoes doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank – even if they’re made of leather. There are a large number of highly popular and highly reputable dancewear companies that each have a great deal of experience in manufacturing quality jazz shoes. Such companies include Bloch, Capezio, Dance Gear and So Danca which have supplied jazz shoes to dancers of all abilities for a great number of years.
