Women's Running Shoes
Every woman runs with a stride all her own, which is why we carry such a large selection of running shoes for women. The best running shoes for you will address a multitude of variables, including the distance you plan on running, the surface(s) you’ll run on, your gait, and the biomechanics of your feet and ankles. And remember to change out your running shoes every 300-400 miles or when they become visibly worn, whichever comes first!
Women’s running shoes cover a lot of ground—literally and in terms of features. Clearly, they need to keep you comfortable. But they should also support you throughout your entire movement cycle, helping you to run efficiently and with proper form. So how do you know if you’ve found the right running shoes for you? Try ’em on! Wear the socks you’ll wear running, and don’t forget to try on both shoes. Your feet should feel secure in the shoes, but your toes should have lots of breathing room. Your feet swell when you run, and neglecting to leave a little extra room can result in painful blisters later on. Don’t be afraid to jog around the store a bit to see if the shoes rub, slide, or generally don’t feel “right” on your feet. Do your heels stay put? Do the shoes give you adequate arch support? Do they flex with your feet?
Keep in mind that different runs require different shoes. Marathon running shoes should provide stability and comfort as you log mile after mile after mile. Consider buying two pairs of marathon running shoes simultaneously—one to train in and another to lightly break in but keep relatively fresh/cushy for race day. General running shoes for casual running/jogging should make you feel comfortable, supported, and like you could run forever.
Don’t settle for an ill-fitting running shoe or try to force the next size up or down to work for your foot’s unique shape or width. Our inventory features a huge selection of the best running shoes for your individual feet. We carry wide running shoes, narrow running shoes, and running shoes for any arch height—all in a variety of hard-to-find sizes that will keep you going. Looking for a specific brand? We have an assortment of adidas running shoes, Reebok running shoes, New Balance running shoes, and many more!
