The severity of Marfan Syndrome features varies, meaning that some people with the Syndrome have more serious effects than others. This variability can occur even within one family.

Trainers who suffer from high arches usually require a little extra bump in the midfoot area and are advised to use the neutral cushioning shoes. These shoes do not come with the stability devices or medial posts and often have a softer midsole ,which typically means more flexible so as to encourage natural pronation. This kind of support usually goes a long way in helping the athlete run through the course comfortable and without hurting herself. Sometimes the midsole support may be supplied by a properly engineered midsole, while at other times it may be provided by a medial post in the outsole.

If you’re new to running, unsure of your feet type or have foot problems (supination or pronation) buy your shoes from a specialty running store. These stores usually have a salesperson that runs and knows how to fit you properly. Specialty running stores can advise you on the latest technology and updates from the shoe companies. What’s more they’re a good source of local information on running events, training and clubs. Allow wiggle room for your toes. There should be no pressure on them. You’ll need toe room for down hill running and on hot days when your feet swell more.

One of the home remedies for cracked heels is to apply petroleum jelly on the heels at night. But, before you apply the jelly, make sure you have washed your feet well. Apply a thick layer of petroleum jelly and wear socks before you go to bed. If you do not like petroleum jelly or are allergic to it, applying an oil based moisturizing cream twice daily can also help. I would recommend applying the cream once after bath and again before you go to bed at night. However, do not forget to wear socks.

Running is one activity we often get involve with as part of exercise or for socialization as in marathons. And your performance also partly relies on your running shoes. When out to buy a pair of running shoes, do you just consider the looks and the brand and forget the rest? If this thing is a crime then you’re probably behind bars. Here’s a short list of the ‘sole’ importance in considering what running shoes to purchase other than the fancy ads of many shoe products. Do not overdo it though, as medial arch that is to high actually give negative impact to a very high arches feet.

Over pronation is the excessive inward rolling motion of the foot This inward motion is considered unhealthy because it can cause a great deal of strain on the back, ankles, knees, and lower legs. Over pronation can cause shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and IT band syndrome. Under pronation occurs when the outside of the foot takes the brunt of the shock when coming in contact with the ground. This condition can cause problems with the ligaments in your feet and ankles. Stability shoes feature either a dual density midsole or a roll bar to help combat pronation problems.
