There are many people who start running with the goal of losing weight or, on the contrary, as they go running, they get rid of a few extra pounds. Since footwear is essential in this discipline, we recommend if you have lost weight running, consider a change of shoes.
We have already told you that the shoes for heavy runners must have some particular characteristics, and this is because with our body weight our footprint is also modified and the impact of running on our joints.
If you have lost weight running, maybe your footprint has changed and not be as prone as before or the charges are distributed differently. Also your shoes will not require so much cushioning and you can benefit from some lighter slippers.
Also, in the event that weight loss is important, there may be morphological changes in the footFor example, it may be thinner and less wide, so the shoe can be very loose, touching the foot while we run.
For all these reasons, the best if you have lost weight running it is consider a change of shoes with previous analysis of the tread again to visualize possible changes.
