Numbness in Feet When Running
(Hollywood, fl USA)
Once I have run for aproximately 30 minutes I feel numbness in my feet.
Answer by Dominique :
What could be the cause of this and has anyone suffered this before ?
Many thanks in advance.
There are several possible reasons of numb feet while running. They all have to do with your shoes :1) Maybe your shoelaces are too tight.
This hinders the blood circulation and could make your feet numb after a while.2) Maybe your shoes are not big enough.
Your runners are supposed to be half a size to a size bigger than your regular shoes. Your feet need quite a bit of room in your running shoes, again, for blood circulation and comfort.3) Not enough absorption.
Your feet make quite a big impact with the ground everytime they hit the ground.
If your shoes do not absorb the shocks enough, then after a while, they will start to feel numb.
Maybe your shoes are getting old and worn out, but maybe they are pretty new, but just not the right shoes for your type of feet.
I recommend you have a look at the running shoe section
on this website to learn a bit more about the different foot types and what to look out for in good running shoes.
Then armed with that knowledge, go to a specialist running store and try to find yourself a pair of runners perfect for your feet !
