Best shoes for Men who land on their forefoot

A runner's foot can land on the ground in a myriad of ways. The rarest is on the forefoot, the front of the foot near the toes. There's nothing inherently wrong with this landing pattern: some advocates recommend non-forefoot runners adopt forefoot running to reduce running's shock to the body. However, because it is rare, many shoes aren't designed for runners who land on their forefoot: as a result, the wrong shoe can wear quickly on the front, which can often lead to injury. That's why it's important for forefoot runners to find the right shoe.
