When should you wear sneakers in the summer?
The summer season is the most productive time to wear sneakers.
And when you wear them during that time, you can enjoy more freedom in how you move around, according to research from the University of Washington.
In a study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, researchers analyzed the movement patterns of 7,200 people during two years in the Seattle area, from July 2012 to March 2015.
The study found that walking in the heat of the summer was the most popular way to wear shoes.
The researchers used data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to compare people walking on their feet with those wearing sneakers.
They also compared how often people were in walking shoes with those in running shoes, and those in other footwear types.
While there were some notable differences between the two types of footwear, walking in sneakers was a more pleasurable activity than walking in running, the researchers wrote.
The study found, for example, that people who walked on their hands and feet walked more slowly and in a more gradual fashion than people who wore running shoes.
“These findings provide evidence for the benefits of wearing running shoes to improve walking and run performance in summer months,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Scott Cramer.
While the researchers said that walking with a pair of running shoes in summer may be beneficial, the study also found that the amount of activity people do in a typical summer is relatively low.
Walking around in a pair is often considered more sedentary than running.
“People do walk around for an hour or so during the summer, and it may not be enough time to get a good workout, especially if you are not accustomed to the exercise,” Dr. Cramer said.
“If you are doing a lot of running, you need to take advantage of the running and other activity,” he added.
The researchers also noted that a lack of exercise can have an impact on your body’s natural hormone levels.
“In a sense, exercise in summer is actually good for your body,” Dr Cramer explained.
“It is good for you and your joints and hormones.”
While the study found a slight drop in the number of people walking in summer, Dr Crama said that it’s not too much of a drop.
“There are people out there who are walking a lot, so there is some impact,” he said.
According to the researchers, walking on your hands and knees is better for people with arthritis, and if you want to exercise while wearing a pair or a pair with a shoe, the best thing to do is to wear a boot or shoe with support.
“A lot of people are not getting a good run in summer,” Dr Seltzer said.
“We need to be wearing running-specific footwear.”
