We’re not wearing any running shoes right now.
But, that’s OK.
We’re getting our exercise back, and we’re enjoying the outdoors.
And our kids are doing well with it.
We’re also wearing running shoes for good reasons.
They’re safer and more comfortable than sneakers.
And, they’re easier to clean.
The biggest concern is whether or not our feet are able to heal from the strain.
If you’re wearing shoes, there’s not much you can do about it, says Dr. Scott Doolittle, the director of sports medicine at the Toronto Health Sciences Centre.
There are no standard guidelines about what to wear for your feet.
You’re encouraged to wear socks and socks without socks, or to use a shoe-free running shoe.
But it’s important to remember that footwear doesn’t provide the same protection as a protective sock, says Doolitt.
So, for example, if you have a sock, you’re less likely to break it.
But a shoe doesn’t prevent injuries.
Dr. Doolitte says people who use running shoes to walk around and play in the park, especially for long distances, should follow the guidelines laid out by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AOS).
But the most important thing is to wear shoes when you can, and keep them on during the day.
It’s better to be cautious than to not wear shoes at all, Doolice says.
The American Academy recommends wearing a shoe for every 10 kilometres you run.
The AOS suggests wearing shoes with at least a half-inch heel and a heel width of at least 4 mm.
