Exercise fads are nothing new, and the running world is in no way exempt from what is a natural human tendency.

RxSorbo, a leading online retailer of top-rated running shoe insoles, is pleased to issue a response to the recent running craze for `barefoot’ running in the form of this public press release. RxSorbo has never strayed from the business of protecting runners’ feet, despite recent fads to the contrary. The company supports both options and encourages runners to experiment, and choose the option best for them. By issuing a public press release, the company hopes to raise awareness during the busy September - October season about the choices available to consumers, ranging from barefoot running shoes to complete insoles.

“Exercise fads are nothing new, and the running world is in no way exempt from what is a natural human tendency,” explained Rj Yozwiak, Manager of RxSorbo. “However, many of our customers have come to us confused by the craze, and uncertain of whether this is the end of insoles. Nothing could be further from the truth. In order to combat customer confusion, we are issuing this press release on our blog and via the Web so that customers know we support the best choice for them: whether that be barefoot style running or insoles. There is no 'one size fits all' solution to foot issues, and this needs to be strongly reiterated.”

Confused customers are encouraged to reach out via the Website for assistance.

Fads Come and Go: Feet Do Not

There is a danger of one running-shoe fad replacing another. As one recent headline put it: “Forget Barefoot; New Trendsetter in Running Shoes Is Cushioning.” Athletes who spent the past few years embracing barefoot running are now being asked to consider shoe construction as the other extreme. Recently growing in popularity are “maximalist” shoes that have chunky, heavily cushioned soles. Are the sport’s new wonder product? Or is the pendulum swinging, and swinging too far, in the other direction? The point of this public statement is to encourage consumers to do individual research, and choose the best option for them.
