The human foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles, and more than 100 ligaments. Pound out 20-plus miles a week on these precious extremities, and you’re bound to get foot pain of some sort.
That’s where the right shoe comes in. Whether you have pronation problems, high arches, or narrow feet, a shoe can add protection, support, and hopefully eliminate (or even prevent) pain. So Men’s Fitness paired the most common foot problems with the best shoes to solve them, focusing in on the features—extreme cushioning, tight lacing, arch support, and more—that will give you the protection you need.
Take our word for it: With these kicks, and a little R&R, you’ll be back in stride in no time.
