Women sports shoes for running are very different from women sports walking shoes. Though I guess we all have done that mixing of our shoes from time to time. Runners should not run in walking shoes as they are too stiff and do not flex with the runner’s gait as they are made for a different type of movement altogether. Vice-versa running shoes do not provide the strength required for walking purposes.
However, fitness walkers usually find a good pair of running shoes much more comfortable to their demands than many of the walking shoes. Knowing what qualities you need for your movements will allow you to choose the perfect pair of sports shoes.
Our running shoes are designed with the newest materials and technology and with a wide range of choices for different running styles and needs. They also vary in the amount of cushioning that they contain from minimalist cushion for shorter bursts of speed to more cushioned for long-distance running. Our range of women sports shoes for running also offer different levels of heel to drop that serves the requirements of heel strikers, mid foot strikers as well as the toe strikers. They are also categorised as per their stability elements and the newer models aim to provide lighter structure with more cushioning in far less weight.
Women sports walking shoes by contrast are designed more for comfort than for performance. They are made to be comfortable on the feet for short walks and strolls at an easy pace. Fitness walkers who need a flexible, lightweight shoe find our range of women sports walking shoes most comfortable as they strike with the heel and roll through on the step. Compared to the running shoes, these walking shoes are usually more stiff and heavy and should not be used for running as they fight your natural running motion and will slow you down.
The seamless construction of our sports running as well as walking shoes eliminates any rubbing with the foot that can lead to blisters and other problems.
