Learn about the anatomy of your running shoe before making your choice.
Upper: The upper is the soft body of the shoe, usually made of a combination of materials from lightweight, durable synthetic mesh to heavier materials like leather. The materials and construction of the upper provide stability, comfort and a snug fit.
Last: This is the basic shape of the shoe. Running shoes have one of three basic lasts: straight, curved and semi-curved.
Insole: The removable part inside the shoe that the runner's foot rests on. It offers more cushioning to supplement the midsole for added comfort.
Midsole: Provides cushioning and, in certain shoe types, the midsole evenly disperses pressure on the foot.
Outsole: The bottom layer of the shoe that is in direct contact with the ground.
Determining your gait mechanics can help you choose the best running shoe for you. Pronation describes the natural inward roll of the foot during a runner's gait cycle. After the heel strikes the ground, the heel and the ankle roll inward and weight is transferred to the midfoot. If you overpronate or underpronate, look for a running shoe that's specially designed to provide the support you need.
