It can be overwhelming to shop for the right shoe for your activity because there are so many options, from running and walking shoes to cross trainers and sport-specific shoes. How do you know you are selecting the right shoe for your feet as well as your activity of choice?

Part of the trick to buying the right shoe is to fully understand what each shoe will do for you. These brief descriptions of different shoe technologies will hopefully make your next trip to the store a more informed experience.

Walking shoes are flexible at the toes. Because you roll from heel to toe when you walk, you should be able to bend and flex the shoe at the toes and the heel should be level with the front of the shoe to accommodate the body mechanics of walking. As a result, walking shoes are not suited for other types of activity. Lightweight performance trainers are great all-around walking shoes for those who don't need motion control. If you walk very long distances, a cushioned shoe might be more comfortable. Stability shoes are for people who do not have severe motion control problems, but who want a stable and durable shoe.

Cross trainers are designed for surfaces off the road or on a treadmill. Made to offer excellent grip and stability, cross trainers are great multipurpose shoes. Cross trainers are a responsive shoe – lower to the ground – which decreases the risk of injury as there is less chance of going over on your ankle during an activity. Due to their durable design, these shoes tend to be heavier than most athletic shoes. Most cross trainers have a wider outsole than running or walking shoes, which contributes to their excellent stability for side-to-side motion.

Running shoes are designed for forward movement with their deep heel and thinner sole in the toe area. There are three categories of shoes that correspond to foot types: motion control, stability and cushioning shoes. When you are buying a new running shoe, it is important to know that motion-control shoes are made for those whose feet roll inwardly (over-pronators), as they are firm and support the feet, keeping them upright.

Stability shoes are firm but also offer a wider range of support for those who have varying degrees of over-pronation. Finally, cushioning shoes are meant for those who are supinators or who tend to roll their feet outward. These shoes simply provide a lot of cushioning and do not provide any corrective support.

Sport-specific shoes are designed for playing basketball, soccer or tennis and as a result are created to accommodate the special requirements for those sports. It is best not to try to play soccer with a basketball shoe, for example, because you may hurt your foot or ankle. You may wish to consider visiting a specialty store where you may find a wider variety of shoes and staff who may be better prepared to answer your questions.

Of course, there is no one perfect shoe. The best shoe for you is one that fits, gives you the proper support, flexibility and cushioning. Here are some tips to making the choice easier.

Shop late in the day, when your feet are slightly swollen, so the shoe will fit you well throughout the day.
Measure your foot while standing.
If you wear an orthotic shoe insert, bring it to the shoe store. Only buy shoes that easily fit your orthotic.
Try on both shoes with the socks you will wear when being active.
Allow for a thumbnail's width between the shoe and your big toe.
Make sure your heel is snug and does not slide out of the shoe when you walk.
Choose shoes that are comfortable immediately. If they hurt in the store, do not buy them.
Look for moderately priced shoes. Price is not necessarily an indication of quality.
Wear your new shoes around the house for a few days before incorporating them into your physical activity routine.
Consider getting an evaluation by a doctor, physiotherapist or podiatrist to learn your foot type before buying a pair of shoes.

Today I'll give you some basic info about 4 types of the GOLF DRIVERS which became very popular during this summer according to surveys.

There are many Taylor Made Tour Burner Tp Driver Reviews out there, but what you really have to know is that this club will deliver for you. Most Taylor Made Tour Burner Tp Driver Reviews will tell you that the the Taylor Made Tour Burner Tp Drive has a dual crown made of titanium, and the weighted power-base promotes increased distance. What you really need to know is that Tour Burner TP features a smaller, lighter crown that distributes more mass and creates a higher center of gravity. This new design helps shots take off higher, and with less spin, which gives you greater distance. Its Inverted Cone Technology also provides faster ball speeds across a larger portion of the face, creating more distance, even on off-center hits.

Today's golf balls are the culmination of a variety of disciplines and talents, from material science to physics. Since there are many kinds of golfers, engineers have devised many kinds of golf balls. When matched correctly to a golfer's game, specific golf balls can increase enjoyment as well as chances for par. The technology of golf balls has reached an unprecedented level, offering different covers, cores, dimple patterns and compression to best suit golfers' varying needs.

Ball Types


A ball designed to react quickly off the clubface for maximum speed, which results in overall distance.
Distance balls appeal to people who find every yard counts, but where it may bring 15 more yards off the tee, it might also skip off the putting surface like a flat rock on water.


A ball designed to deter excessive spin, such as backspin (makes the ball climb higher) or sidespin (hooks and slices).
Control balls help golfers fight hooking-and-slicing tendencies and maneuver low shots on windy days.


A ball intended to create as much backspin as possible, which generally leads to higher trajectory and better stopping ability on the ground.
Better amateurs and touring pros prefer balls that offer high spin. These models may not be as long off the tee, but they make up for it in superior control.


Overall Design

Two-piece balls:

Contain a large solid core and thin Surlyn cover
Enhance distance and durability
Offer more durability and improved playing characteristics

Three-piece balls:

Contain a small solid or liquid core
Usually have rubber windings, and cover elastic winding and soft balata cover
Enhance backspin and control


Multi-layers provide a multi-purpose ball
Wound balls are made of thin, little rubber bands wound tightly into a sphere


Solid cores are usually made of a high-energy rubber or similar compound
Liquid-filled cores offer less trajectory and great feel and can spin for better accuracy
Titanium cores provide more reaction and greater distance


Determines feel on soft hits, like putts and chips
Blends co-polymer plastics, high-energy rubber, or similar resistant compounds
Multi-cover layers material over the core to induce different playing responses
Surlyn balls travel farther with less spin
Balata-covered balls are softer and offer more enhanced feel, although they don't resist scrapes and cuts well


Vary between 300 and 500
Affects the aerodynamics for more or less trajectory
Larger dimples promote trajectory
Smaller dimples lessen trajectory


Sorts golf balls by their hardness
If you prefer a softer feel, you should play a 90 compression ball, and if you prefer a harder feel, you should play 100
Swing speed is not necessarily the determining factor in selecting your compression

Playing Level

When thinking about which ball will help you achieve par, it's best to imagine a good-sized par-4.
If getting an extra 15 yards off the tee would help you hit shorter irons on approach shots to green, then maybe a distance ball will help.
Most people feel that high-spin balls appeal only to pros that need precision on iron shots. But a senior or woman who has trouble reaching a par-4 in two shots will appreciate the control offered by a performance ball after the 3rd shot.
Some balls are designed for slower swing speeds with a lightweight construction that catches air. They are generally marketed for women or seniors, but don't let labels fool you. Plenty of men play these balls because, for them, it yields the most distance.
