Running is one of the best ways to get yourself going or to clear your mind after a hectic day. Running appeals to many women because it is easily accessible and simple. There is no need for equipment or a gym membership. The only thing you need for a great run is a little time and a great pair of shoes. Foot Locker understands the importance of having a pair of running shoes that caters to a runner’s needs.
Women’s running shoes are available in many model types that meet the needs of everyone from the barefoot runner to the trail runner. Barefoot shoes are made for the athlete who wants a running experience similar to that of running barefoot with the added benefit of a sole to protect the foot. Lightweight performance running shoes are ideal for the runner who is working on improving her time or training for races. Motion-control shoes, also referred to as support shoes, are built for runners who severely overpronate (roll their feet inward) and require maximum cushioning and control. Stability running shoes are for runners who mildly overpronate and need support through the heel, midsole, and post area. Cushioned running shoes are ideal for the woman who has a neutral gait and puts a lot of miles on her shoes. Lastly, trail shoes are made with thicker, more rugged outsoles and increased durability for the off-road runner. To learn more about the features and benefits of each shoe type click here.
