Running shoes

Running shoes means shoes worn by the one who is running. But here it means more than that.  A pair of shoes suitable for running should stand for the name of  “Running shoes”.

Nowadays, thousands of Running shoe brands crowded in the market. Based on performance and target consumer, Running shoes can roughly divide into three categories:  shock absorption, stability and motion control.

Running shoes for women,What is it?

Depending on the needs of biomechanics, Running shoes can divide into three categories:  shock absorption, stability and motion control.

Shock absorption running shoes: usually with a soft mezzanine sole, helps the foot absorb the force evenly during movement. Pumps are generally lighter and less stable.

Stability running shoes usually with a TPU plastic sheet with uniform force on the sole or a high-density material structure on the inside. These exclusive designs can prevent damage caused by slight pronation of the foot and provide excellent support and endurance for the inside edge of the foot.

Motion controlling running shoes: usually stiff, they reduce or control excessive pronation in the foot, prevent ankle injuries, and often weigh more than other running shoes. Generally speaking, the inner layer is made of TPU plastic sheet with a large area evenly stressed, and high-density reinforced material. It uses to control the internal rotation of the foot and provide the durability of the interlayer sole. The outer rubber is more durable.

Category of running shoes for women

Athletic shoe manufacturers have studied the biomechanics of many people’s foot shapes. They have produced shoes tailored to meet the needs of different people.  Based on function,  in addition to the three categories mentioned above,  running shoes have another three categories: for a race, cross-country and leisure, six groups in total. Also, they can divide into straight type, half bending type, bending nature.

Structural similarity

Running shoes for women of good quality have similar main structures regardless of the brand. Among them, the outsole is the one layer that contacts ground, quality of a material is a bit hard, wear-resisting, have an antiskid function. There are also a few ultra-light running shoes that don’t have outsoles, which are only suitable for running on a treadmill. 

The midsole is the most crucial cushioning layer, which is softer than the outsole. And the support at the arch of the foot controls the twisting force of shoe’s bending and transfers the impact of landing from heel to ball of the foot. The shock absorption device in the heel is crucial, and each brand has its technology and characteristics. The insole is usually removable and is the last line of defence for damping and correcting foot defects. Uppers, mainly made of pure leather, GTX fabric and nylon woven, is to let the foot and shoes carefully combined, with the function of breathing and cooling balanced. The thick heel of the shoe can improve the stability of the foot when landing.
