Some of the Best Running Shoes Available on the Market

The most popular women's running shoes are those that are comfortable, sturdy, long lasting, powerful and stylish. Some shoes are more flexible than others, some shoes are more comfortable than others, some shoes are a bit bizarre, but one fact remains the same: shoes are something most people wear on a day-to-day basis. So in this article, I'm going to reveal some of the most interesting and top selling women's running shoes in America.

Vibram Five Fingers (also known as foot/toe shoes):

Minimalist foot wear has become exceedingly popular in recent years. These shoes are flexible, soft, close-fitting and possibly one of the most stylish kinds of shoes ever crafted. Foot shoes were originally designed for runners and have many varying types available for all kinds of feet. The different types have varying amounts of tread, so it's important to pay attention to which kind you buy if you're going to be hiking or doing anything that might make you slip. These are some of the most popular women's running shoes available.

Nike Running Shoes:

This is one of the highest rated, most famous brands available. I love these shoes because they're comfortable and long lasting, plus they're excellent for both genders. One of my personal favorite athletes, Michael Jordan, is one of the many people who contributed to Nike's intense popularity. These shoes are very reliable and make great additions to any footwear wardrobe.

Adidas Running Shoes:

There's an incredibly wide selection of Adidas women's running shoes that vary in color and style. The brand has been around for a really long time and they have a great design for women's footwear. If you're not thrilled with the Vibrams and the Nikes are just too popular, then perhaps you should consider wearing these comfortable and colorful shoes instead. I like them a lot, and since there are so many shoes available to choose from, it's good to know that there are older, more experienced companies like this one still around.

Shoes contribute greatly to the health and well-being of everyone who uses them. They prevent people from getting injured from random debris and sharp objects and they can help prevent people with plant allergies from getting rashes. In addition to the obvious, visible effects, good shoes help prevent people from having poor posture and can save everyone money on medical bills. Isn't that neat?

Running apparel for women has changed dramatically over the 33 years that I have been running. From simple construction that met basic needs, to eye-popping color-coordination, women s running outfits have truly evolved. Today, running clothes for women are designed not only to be visually appealing, but also to enhance performance.

I have fond memories of my first pair of Nike "waffles"; blue with a yellow swoosh, and very wide soles with nubs on them (hence the nickname). They were effective, simple and stylish, and were most-often accompanied by knee-high athletic socks with wide color bands that very seldom matched my cool shoes. This ensemble was completed by short-shorts, and your typical 70's t-shirt. Back then, running clothes for women were usually what was required for gym class, or what was worn for a host of other activities. Women's running outfits, such as they were, did not really address variations in climate; you either wore your short-shorts and froze or wore sweats and suffered the opposite effect.

Of course, it has not been proven that dressing in color-coordinated and otherwise stylish running apparel guarantees success in running endeavors. However, it most definitely boosts that can-do feeling. Along with an occasional admiring glance from onlookers, this can lead to better results and an increased desire to get out there and run in the first place!

It was a very cold race day in February, when I learned to truly appreciate the evolution in women's running apparel. The race took place around a frozen lake. The actual temperature was 15 degrees Fahrenheit, with a 25-mile-an-hour wind bringing the wind-chill factor to well below zero (or at least that's the way it felt). Yes, I believed that I looked very stylish in my matching lycra running pants with coordinating jacket, gloves, beanie, and shoes. However, it was not the fashionable aspect of my outfit that was its saving grace that day, but the physical aspects of the design. The fabric was relatively light and form fitting, yet surprisingly warm, with the ability to wick perspiration away from the body. This kept me from freezing. The cut and design allowed for uninhibited movement. I didn't come in last.

Of course Under Armour is the leader in climate-based running apparel. Not to mention the fact, that Under Armour running clothes always look great.
