Published at 04/05/2012 02:36:43


We all need shoes. We need shoes to protect our feet from injury and we need shoes to keep out feet warm. We need and want shoes to show off our unique style and to look good. We also need shoes for certain activities that require a certain type of footwear to keep our feet and surrounding areas safe and protected. Running is one sport that requires a certain type of shoe in order to get the most out of a run and to keep injuries at bay.

Step 1


Women, in particular, are more susceptible to the types of injuries that one can get from running especially as we get older. There are women’s running shoes and they come in a variety of sizes, styles, colors and brands. Women’s running shoes should seriously be considered if you plan to start running or doing any activities that require running.

Step 2

A women’s running shoe needs to do it’s job if you are going to get your money’s worth so it is always a good idea to have someone who knows a lot about women’s running shoes go shopping with you or speak with a professional and knowledgeable salesperson who can properly fit you for the best pair for your needs.

Step 3

The job of women’s running shoes is to fit properly so that you have enough room for your feet to breathe but they are firm enough that your feet are not slipping inside the shoes.

Step 4

The shoes should also support your feet and ankle properly so the shoes cannot be flimsy, they should not rest just below the ankle bone and the foot should not slip to the side when you walk or run as this can cause a twisted or sprained ankle.

Step 5

When shopping for women’s running shoes, make sure to check every resource available to you. Check every store that sells them in your city or town and surrounding areas and if you do not find anything, look on the internet or ask a sales clerk to order a particular shoe for you if they carry it. Don’t forget to check department stores, specialty sports shops and women’s shoe stores.


Do not buy the first pair that you find, make sure to shop around before making a final purchase. It is probably not a good idea to buy second-hand women’s running shoes from a thrift store as they will already be worn out and will not provide the same support that you will need. You want a fresh new pair of women’s running shoes that will mold to your feet and fit perfectly.
