Shoe shopping is a favorite pastime for nearly any fashionable girl about town. We love our myriad of Manolos and zealously defend our right to Choos. However, after indulging in fabulous holiday fare, many of us have probably made a New Year’s resolution to get fit in 2008. And what better way to begin the year than by adding a great pair of running sneakers to your shoe collection? But, with so many factors to take into account, you may hesitate in deciding which pair of runners will be best for you.
According to Running World, one proven winner is the Ryka MC2 Run. The running shoe is said to be both firm and pliable – a necessity as women often require extra flexibility in their running shoes. The durable fit will keep you going the distance, even in the harsh winter months.
Those who value style as much as comfort might like to look at some of the sneakers being offered by Tod’s. They might not provide quite as much support as some of the other more traditionally athletic shoes, but they’re sure to look absolutely dazzling on the treadmill.
However, if you’re looking for a way to fulfill a New Year’s resolution to do good in addition to getting fit you might be interested in New Balance’s trainers. The cross trainers are affiliated with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Race For the Cure and proudly display a very stylish pink ribbon on the side of the shoes. This shoe not only provides maximum motion control, support and cushioning, it also helps support a cause that can affect every woman.
If you’re searching for some active wear (and inspiration) to complement your new running shoes the website www.irunlikeagirl.com can be a terrific resource. It not only provides an amazing collection of running wear but also offers tips for runners and an ever updated list of charity races occurring throughout the country.
Some time spent in any one of these wonderful pairs of shoes will leave you looking even more wonderful in your favorite pair of stilettos.
