The shoe market today is overflowing with all types of the best running shoes for women. It can be very confusing finding the right shoes to give you the support and comfort you need when running. There are many choices available and each on depends on the requirements you need and the type of foot you have.
Recently many sport wear companies have considered women’s running shoes as just the smaller version of men’s running shoes except in pink or purple. However, today these same sport wear companies have decided that a women’s foot is unique as are female runners. They are now investing in creating innovative styles and designs that accommodate the uniqueness of women’s feet.
There are many factors to take into consideration when deciding the best running shoes for women such as stability, cushioning and the control in motion.
Nike Zoomero 6
For women with high arches it is recommended they choose cushioned running shoes to help absorb the hard impact. These types of running shoes are soft and have flex grooves that are deeply carved. The best brand to choose is Nike Zoomero 6. This brand has a style that is specifically designed for women. It has a sole and upper that is completely unique from the men’s version.
Asics Gel Cumulus 13
The Asics Gel Cumulus 13 is another brand in this category. This brand is a tough competitor for the Nike Zoom Vomero when it comes to cushioned women’s running shoes. The only difference is that this brand is not as flexible but is a great running shoe for heavy women runners because it gives them the support they need and absorbs shock well. It is also considered a good high mileage shoe.
Brooks Ghost 4
The final pick for the best running shoes for women is the Brooks Ghost 4. This brand has been recently introduced on the market and has become very popular. This shoe has great flexibility and the cushioning makes it perfect for long races and also for short and fast workouts.
Ranging from the least to the most in stability is the Asics Gel Kayano 18. This is a luxury running shoe that has a soft upper with good cushioning but minimal stability. Next up is Nike Zoom Structure Triax 15. The Nike brand is well known to have good cushioning and always fit perfectly and is great for all types of running even marathons. The final pick in this category is the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12 which offers complete stability and flexibility unlike any other in this category.
Motion Control Shoes Are Great For Flat Foot Runners
Running shoes with motion control are built specifically for runners with flat feet. These types of runners are prone to over pronation which hurts the heel during sprints. Running shoes with motion control minimize how the feet roll when they are in motion. The best shoe in this category is the Mizuno Wave Alchemy 9.
So as you see there are many different categories for the best women’s running shoes. The best pick really depends on your requirements and they type of foot you have.
