Cushioning shoes - Cushioning shoes are a type of running shoes that belong to neutral shoes. They are mainly characterized by high to very high cushioning in the midsole and are also known as cushion shoes. Due to the high damping, these neutral running shoes are primarily intended for quiet runs on hard surfaces. On asphalt or concrete, the strong impact should be sufficiently cushioned and at the same time the joints are protected. Due to the lack of pronation support, cushioning shoes are not suitable for runners with overpronation. However, it is important for all runners to weigh up whether such a high degree of cushioning is necessary. If in doubt, a professional can help to find the right running shoes.

Cushioning System - Cushioning systems are special technologies incorporated between the insole and outsole, especially in running shoes, designed to cushion impact. Good cushioning is especially important on hard surfaces, if you are overweight or if you are an untrained runner. However, the running style also plays a role in the degree of cushioning. Different running shoe manufacturers have specially developed cushioning systems for different requirements.
