I like to run long distances (7-17 miles) on the trail, but occasionally or partially I also run on the road.
I have got pain similar to tendinitis in my left ankle, and I started looking for new shoes for my running with respect to this problem now. I learned that two qualities are important for shoes when you just had a tendinitis problem: high drop and moderate cushioning. However, the opinion split on wearing always the shoes with high drop and cushioning? Or, just temporary when the symptoms start?
One article claimed that if I always use cushioned shoes and with high drop some of the muscles are not activated. That would be counterproductive to avoid future problems.
I read these articles and more:
What are the recommendations for professional runners when they suffer from tendinitis?
Is it a good idea to use different shoes? Or, is it ok always using high drop and cushioned shoes?
