What Is the Best Amount of Drop?
- A high heel-toe drop (over 7 mm) is best for runners who land heel first, have issues with their Achilles tendon, or who often wear shoes with an elevated heel.
- A low heel-toe drop (from 0 to 6 mm) is best for runners who land on the middle or front of the foot.
What does drop mean in running shoes?
The drop of a shoe is the difference in height between the heel and forefoot. The greater the drop, the steeper the angle between your heel and forefoot.
