buy high drop training shoes for men and women

“High-drop” refers to those training shoes that have a heel-to-toe drop of 10 mm or more. The drop, also referred to as the offset, is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot sections of a shoe.

Some people feel more comfortable using high-drop training shoes compared to low-drop or minimalist training shoes because they believe that the heel lift allows them to be more stable because of the change in the angle of the ankle. The slight elevation lessens the strain on the ankle which results in achieving a deeper squat. The sloping design also positions the foot to be ready to push off at any given time which is vital during sprints and plyometrics.
