The running shoe industry has evolved so much that its single feature deserves a dedicated article. It is also making our runs easier while making it complicated for beginners to know about each of them. Let’s what are carbon plate running shoes
Carbon Plated shoes aren’t something new, the technology has been around since the 90s. It wasn’t that popular back in the days as it’s getting popular now. The research and development under this particular niche have created a wider adoption of the shoe.
The popularity of carbon plates went to the roof after Eliud Kipchoge ran the marathon in under 2 hours wearing Nike vapor fly.
Before diving into whether you should be getting a new pair of carbon plates, let’s dissect some common features of carbon plates. The shoes usually have a carbon fiber plate sandwiched between the midsole foam. The length of the plate may vary from shoe to shoe. The midsole foam in the shoes acts like spring, which stores and releases energy as we run.
What Does a Carbon Plate Actually Do?
Should I be Using Carbon Plates for My Daily Run?
I’m Shafey. An avid runner since 2012. I am one of few people who like doing cardio instead of muscle building. I love spending time on treadmills, tracks, pavements, or any surface rather than exercising with dumbles.
With all those years of experience and spending the whole night reading blogs and researching different concepts of running. Learned a lot about new tips and tricks. In those years tried different running shoes (from $ to $$$). I got a great knowledge that can be shared with others. I may not be a professional running coach but YES an experienced runner who can guide right to beginners.✌️✌️
