Hit the pavement or circuit with a new pair of Adidas running shoes – this is a great guide to getting the best pair of shoes to suit your needs.
Running is arguably the best form of fitness anybody can perform. Not only does it keep you fit by toning your body and working your endurance, it also means that you get to spend more time outdoors – so you’ll be refreshing your body with clean air and natural light. And when it comes to women’s running, adidas knows the importance of having the right shoes for the job, allowing you to run longer and more often.
Choosing the best women’s running shoes
1. Firstly, it’s important to consider the surface that you will be running on. The difference between roads, tracks and trails will determine what sort of grip and cushioning you need. How often you run and the type of running you do are also very important factors. Ask yourself; will you be preparing for a marathon? Entering running competitions? Or are you a casual once a week runner?
2. Next, Adidas recommend getting a professional evaluation for your feet to determine whether you run with underpronation, overpronation or neutral feet. So it may be important to select women’s stability running shoes or women’s running shoes for overpronation if your feet need it.
3. Take your current weight into account when selecting the cushioning of your running shoes. And when trying them on, consider going half a size larger because your feet will expand during any sports activity. Before running in your new women’s running shoes, it’s also important to wear them in for a couple of days.
4. As much as you love your new adidas running shoes, make sure you don’t use the same pair for too long. They should look like new for a long time, but regular running shoes should only be worn for about 400 to 600 km. And if you run often, ensure you have multiple pairs of shoes to rotate through to help prevent any injuries.
Road running-The road is the most common place for runners to do their thing. With smooth, even surfaces and endless distances, they’re the easiest place to run. The collection of adidas women’s road running shoes provide the right support to take advantage of these surfaces with enough grip to handle all types of weather.
Track running-This is where things get serious. Track running shoes are designed for one thing and one
thing only. Speed. And with the right speed, our collection of adidas women’s track running shoes will help you break your records while keeping you safe from injury. At around 200g, they’re super lightweight – meaning you’ll be able to run your fastest without being weighed down.
Trail running -There’s nothing better than discovering the unknown on foot, and that’s exactly what our collection of adidas women’s trail running shoes help you do. With trail-specific features including all-terrain grip, extra protection and purpose-made uppers, you’ll be able to run through surfaces that are uneven, sharp, slippery and even through water streams. Look out for models with GORE-TEX® for a waterproof and breathable lining.
Treadmill running-Sometimes we just need to hit the treadmill to get in our daily run. It could be because of the weather, the time of day or for the sheer convenience of it. No matter how far you run, our collection of adidas women’s treadmill running shoes was designed to help you cover more distance with less wear.
