It's time we take a hard look at the stated or implied benefits of traditional athletic shoes. Too often we look to fashion, trends, advertisements and celebrity endorsements for information on what shoes are good for our bodies.
SoleOfAthletes.coms insight:

There are many different models and designs of running shoes available for all kinds of foot types.
