By: plcoll
Due to the uneven pavement, potholes and other problems women runner encounter when they are running they can develop foot injuries. Most of these runners end up with stiff feet from poor selection of shoes. In order for a women runner to be able to select the proper running shoe they need to know the criteria of a good running shoe.

Depending on the type of running program that the women are involved in make a great difference on the type of shoes she should get. Women that run distances of 25 miles or more per week is going to need a more durable shoe than a women that run a shorter distance.

The two most determining factors on which shoe you would like to try is the distance you run on each outing and how often you run each week. Knowing these two factors women can look for the proper shoe for the style and distance they run.

Many of the shoemakers have woman running shoes on the market but Adidas, Nike, New Balance, Reebok and more make the best shoes. The best womens running shoes will ensure safety, durability and comfort if the shoe is not comfortable do not purchase it because it will cause you to get blister and sores on your feet and make you prematurely tired. You also want to be sure to get good ankle support so you do not twist your ankles.

A lot of the low quality shoes do not have proper airflow and will cause you to develop sores, which can lead to infection. So do not compromise your feet to an inexpensive pair of shoes. Todays technology has come up with the full volume air sole that extends from the tip of the toe to the heel to ensure greater comfort and to aide in preventing sores from developing.

Cushioning is probably as important as airflow or maybe even more because we exert thousand of pounds of pressure on our feet every time we run. So it is very important to get a good shoe with the proper amount of cushioning without compromising the weight.
Keep your shoes as light as possible so that you are not carrying that added weight on a 25-mile run.

The price you pay for your shoe is the quality you are going to get. Do not be sold one of those inexpensive shoes because they look like their pricier counterpart. If you are serious about running the most important piece of equipment you will buy will be your shoes so do your homework and spend the money so you do not end up with severe injured feet because of a few dollars.
