Competitive Cross Country Running : Shoes for Cross Country Running

Hi, my name is Peter with Expert Village.
Today I’m going to talk to you about competitive cross country running. In this section I’m
going to talk to you about fitted shoes. The reason why you want to make sure you get a
good fitted shoe is because everyones feet, there are about three types of feet’s out
there as far as wear, your feet hit on the ground. So what you’re going to want to look
for is like any type of running institute around your neighborhood or just a big shoe
store that has where they can sensor what type of shoe is going to work best for your
foot and where to put the most pressure. The reason why that is important is because you
want to prevent injuries now in the beginning and not have to worry about later when you
can actually get any type of shin splints since we’re all familiarize with. So shoes
are definitely one of the key elements towards cross country competitive running. With shoes,
little do a lot of people know is you can just go in and get a shoe that is your size
but what you really want to do is go to a expert place where they have a platform you
can walk on it. It will actually sensor the different positions on the bottom of your
feet to see what shoes are going to work best. There are usually three types of fitted shoes
out there and they will let you know which one works best. I have a type of shoe that
I got fitted at a running institute these work really great, they help me prevent any
type of shin splints when I’m running.

  • The three things best thing to look for in a XC shoes:
    1: Weight
    2: Comfort ( If you don't have the right comfort you can get really injured or really bad blisters.)
    3: Flexibility
