My guest today is George Vavritsas. With George we will develop one of the most talked about subjects of runners, the purchase of a running shoe. We will talk in detail and refer to the selection criteria, the technologies based on them, the difference between the shoes but we will also refer to various concepts and terminologies that will make us understand and also facilitate us in this difficult choice that we have to make .
05:25 Is choosing a shoe perhaps the most important decision a runner has to make? By what criteria do I choose a shoe?
09:29 Does it matter how often we run, what kind of training we do and what races we will participate in?
12:12 What shoe size should we buy?
16:43 What are terms like Cushion, Stability, Heel drop, Performance/Racing;
19:01 Is there a number that we can say is ideal for Heel Drop? What is Zero Heel Drop?
23:00 Could we for example have two pairs of shoes different from each other in Heel Drop?
25:08 Following on from my own question, I also ask the question from a friend of the show who asks: How likely is an injury or inflammation to occur when someone changes company or drops in a shoe?
26:35 How does one decide what kind of shoe to get?
28:56 It is needed palmogram and by extension and perhaps creating personalized soles?
31:45 What do we mean by saying? Super Shoes; Can they really help you become, for example, faster and perform better? Is it for all runners?
