podiatrist woodbridge vaMany of us may scale back on exercise during the winter, but spring is right around the corner! It’s time to head back outside, enjoy more sports, and get moving! If you’ve been working out in the gym over the winter, it’s important that you get a good new pair of shoes before hitting the hiking trails or going for a run outdoors. Our podiatrist in Woodbridge, VA, gives some recommendations below.

Benefits of Outdoor Exercise

Hiking, running outdoors, and doing outdoor sports are all exciting ways to get your daily exercise in. You can experience new sights, explore new terrain, and have a more memorable workout with friends. Spring also brings fresh air and sunlight to get you out of the winter groove and into a new exercise routine!

Importance of New Shoes

It’s incredibly important to have new shoes if you’re going to transition back into outdoor exercise. Exercise shoes wear out over time, even if you only use them indoors. Be sure to check the flexibility of the arch---if it’s too floppy or if it bends when you twist it, it’s time for a new pair. Having supportive shoes is critical to prevent foot and leg injuries when working out.

Picking New Exercise Shoes

If you have a high arch or a low arch, make sure that you buy a properly fitted shoe for your foot type. If your shoes don’t fit properly and support your arch, you can cause damage to your foot over time. Issues such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and bunions can develop if your shoes are too tight, long, or loose in the arches. Check with our podiatrist if you are unsure of your foot type.
