Avi-Motion "New Exercise Shoe From Avia"

Exercise shoes are in vogue. New models are coming out from a number of different manufacturers. One we just received is the Avi-Motion from Avia. And the feed back from our customers has been great. The fit and comfort is very good and the double rocker sole really seems to work the muscles in the legs and buttocks. The other great selling point is the price $84.99 about $15-$20 less than other brands. So if you want to try a pair of the Avi-Motion shoes click on the image below.

Athletic Shoes Made In The USA!

Are there any athletic shoes made in the USA any more?
It does not seem like it. But there are still a couple that are made in the United States. We can thank New Balance for it's commitment to American workers.
New Balance has five American facilities:
Boston, MA

Norway, ME
Norridgewock, ME
Skowhegan, ME
They produce a total of about 30,000 pair of shoes a day!
New Balance has proven that high quality athletic footwear can be made in America. Here are four examples of that quality and craftsmanship that have been become synonymous with the company.

Heritage Running Shoe 993, that runners have relied on for years. By using  Adzorb DTS and an Acteva midsole, it provides a stable platform and smooth transition, while delivering comfort  and performance.

Different Types of Running Shoes - What One Do I Need? Cushioning

Go in to any shoe store and you will see the amazing selection of running shoes available to the consumer. With so many types of running shoes out there, it's hard to know which one you may need. So to make it easier, I have split them into 3 main groups; Cushioning, Motion Control, and Stability. This article will concentrate on Cushioning Shoes. I will talk about their construction and also what kind of traits you may have that would indicate you may need a cushioning shoe.

Cushion shoes are the most flexible of running shoes, compared to motion control and stability control ones. Cushioning shoes are built on a last that is curved inward. A runner with a normal to high arch and who's foot rolls towards the outside (under pronation) would need this type of running shoe. So by having a inward curving last the runner is allowed a natural motion (natural pronation) that they would not normally have. A cushioning shoe will allow the runner to gain more cushioning with their gait (motion of walking) by creating a natural pronation as they run.

Having a natural pronation absorbs shock that the legs would normally take. These shoes have nylon uppers and their soles are made entirely of phylon and/or blown EVA. Some may also have a plastic web underneath the arch of the shoe. There are many different levels of flexibility, and degrees of cushioning available to fit the runner's needs. Having a knowledgeable sales person measure and properly fit you is always recommended. By choosing the right shoe you will have a smoother and more enjoyable run, and also have less chance for injuries.
