Washington: If you are healthy and plan to start running for the first time, it is perfectly all right to put on a pair of completely ordinary `neutral` running shoes without any special support, according to new research from Aarhus University.Ordinary running shoes function perfectly well for new runners regardless of how they pronate. Even though your feet overpronate when you run - i.e. roll inwards.There appears to be no risk that overpronation or underpronation can lead to running injuries through using neutral shoes for this special group of healthy beginners.Researchers have followed 927 healthy novice runners with different pronation types for a full year. All study participants received the same model of neutral running shoe, regardless of whether they had neutral foot pronation or not. During the study period, 252 people suffered an injury, and the runners ran a total of 163,401 km.The study found that the risk of injury was the same for runners after the first 250 km, irrespective of their pronation type.
