With Spring around the corner and runners gearing up for marathons all over the country, Dr. Ricciardi with Emerald Coast Podiatry lists his top picks of running shoes that he recommends to his patients.

    If you have low to normal foot arches, look to Asics Gel Cumulus shoes and Brooks Glycerin shoes. For neutral arches, try Asics Nimbus running shoes. Those with neutral to high foot arches should check out Asics Kayano or Brooks Ghost running shoes. All of these will work well with the arch types described. Brooks Pro Series shoes also has greast options for those with either a high arch or low arched foot. If you are looking to increase your overall comfort in your marathon run training or other daily activities, you may want to talk to Dr. Ricciardi about custom orthotics done right in the office!
