Take on Your Run in Women’s Technical Running Shoes
Built for performance, the right pair of women’s technical running shoes adds speed to your stride. Select from a variety of constructions, technical features and styles for the running footwear that matches your gait.
Women’s technical running shoes are engineered specially for the repetitive motion of running – crafted to support and improve your gate, mile after mile. Get breakthrough technology that makes a difference for your run, like articulated rubber outsoles, responsive foam cushioning and air-light midsoles.
Your technical running shoes should deliver custom-like quality. Ensure your shoes are built to support a smooth heel-toe transition and the right level of arch support.
Details like a seamless sockliner enhance fit, while a responsive outsole platform provides both shock absorption and flex. Consider your running style and gait type to find the shoe that’s right for you:
Neutral technical running shoes offer cushioning but no added stability, promoting a natural gait cycle for the foot. Neutral running footwear is best suited for runners with underpronation/supination or neutral pronation
Stability technical running shoes offer medial support and midsole cushioning, combatting the foot’s tendency to roll inward. These shoes are best suited for mild or moderate overpronation
What kind of runner are you? Sprinters should opt for lightweight running shoes that are optimized for speed. Marathoners need a shoe with superb cushioning and support for repeatedly pounding pavement. Trail runners, meanwhile, need dense outsoles suited for traction on rough terrain. Outdoor runners should look for weather-proof materials that provide durability in the elements.
Consider the construction of your technical shoe when making your purchase:
Your shoe’s toe box should provide ample room for the foot to flex, making toe-off more comfortable. If your toe box is too small restricts the foot and causes cramping
Heel counters reinforce the heel area of your shoe and increase stability in your gait. Heel counters come in varying degrees of stiffness
The Achilles notch in the back of the shoe’s heel collar protects your Achilles tendon and enhances fit
