Running is a good way for you to improve your cardiovascular health. It’s an accessible exercise that you can do anywhere.
Recently, more people have gotten into running as a form of exercise. Various marathons and fun runs have been organized all over the world. Finding people jogging at the park is not an uncommon sight anymore, but it wasn’t like that until the late 1960s. Back then, it was seen as a weird activity, to the point where police stopped joggers to question them about their motives.
One thing helped running break into the mainstream is the production of running shoes.
Running was only considered for athletes in the 1960’s. It wasn’t a form of exercise for the public. Bill Bowerman, a university running coach and co-founder of Nike, brought it to the mainstream. He discovered running as a hobby in New Zealand back in 1962. When he returned to the U.S., he co-wrote a book called Jogging, which was credited for further pushing the movement. Nike also created in the Cortez shoes, which has a sponge rubber midsole that helped cushion your feet against road impacts.
By the ’70s, the production of running shoes by Nike and other shoe manufacturers were at a full swing. It was also during this time that the first female-specific running shoe was created, therefore further pushing the hobby to the limelight. Finally, it was in 1976 that the first air-cushioned shoe was created, which is still being used up to this day.
After creating the cushioned soles for the running shoes, shoe designers created designs that help runners’ heel-to-toe drop. Runners differ on how they strike their foot on the run. Some use their heel, toe, and midfoot. There are also new designs that provide cushioning to prevent blisters from long-distance running.
Today, people have multiple options to choose from. From shoes with different widths, to shoes made specifically to the way that you walk. Just go to an athletics store, or do online shopping, and you will find the perfect running shoe for you.
Nowadays, big shoe manufacturers use 3D printing to create running shoes. You can also watch this relaxing video of how to create a running shoe from the start to end.
