What makes a good shock absorbing shoe?

Shock absorbing shoes are sometimes called maximalist shoes because they deliver the max amount of cushioning that you can possibly pack into a pair of sneakers! They come equipped with the latest and greatest in shoe tech to evenly distribute the shock of repeated impact across all your ideal pressure points. There is a HUGE amount of kinetic energy built up during your running exploits-starting from the ground at your feet, through your ankles, up your shins, past your knees, all the way up to your hips and back. Shock absorbing shoes are built to soften the massive amount of force placed on all those bones and joints. Science is pretty sweet, ain't it?

Can shock absorbing shoes alleviate running pain?

They can certainly help! Did you know that every time your foot hits the ground while running, you create a force that's 1.5 to 3 times your body weight? That translates to a lot of shock placed on your delicate bones and it can make running feel rather painful-especially for beginners. Do you have foot pain while you run that's impossible to ignore? Are shin splints derailing your game? Runner's knee slowing you down? Shock absorbing shoes can reduce the pressure and corresponding pain that can come from pounding the pavement over and over.

How do shock absorbing shoes work?

The cushioning system in your shock absorbing shoes will vary based on which brand you go with; each manufacturer has its own unique blend of material strategically placed throughout the midsole and outsole to disperse pressure upon landing. Take adidas, for example: the science behind its shock absorbing technology all rests in these tiny little energy capsules which look similar to styrofoam. New Balance, on the other hand, makes its shock absorbing shoes with proprietary Fresh Foam material while Brooks makes use of its signature BioMoGo DNA. Other companies construct their maximalist shoes with shock absorbing features in addition to the ultra soft cushioning, such as the HOKA ONE ONE early stage Meta-Rocker and the the ASICS Guidance Line paired with the popular GEL cushion. From segmented crash pads to rollbar technology, brands continue to push the envelope of innovation when it comes to making the best shock absorbing shoes-and you can explore all of them at Road Runner Sports!

What are the best shock absorbing shoes?

We can't be biased; what feels best for your feet might be a little different for the next runner. Some people prefer cushioning that's on the firmer side to make their runs feel energized, snappy, and responsive. Others might be in the market for the most pillow-like underfoot sensation they can find! If you're not sure what feels best for your unique feet, head to a Road Runner Sports store and chat with one of our Fit Experts to feel the difference.
