Sports Shoes for Women & Kids

Kids run, even when they’re not trying to, and there’s no two ways about it. All that running can cause serious wear & tear on their footwear as well as their feet. But the question that is staring you right in the face is “Are running shoes for kids worth it?”; the answer to that question is yet. Shoes that have been specifically designed with children in mind have a wide range of beneficial properties starting with a more advanced degree of comfort & support than a pair of everyday sneakers. They are carefully designed to have a greater degree of cushioning, stability and of course, the most important component of all – style. A combination of all these three will give you the best sport shoes for kids. Tailor-made running shoes can also help prevent a number of disorders such as ankle rolls and shin splints, not to mention your run-of-the-mill sore feet.

 A few of the  factors that affect the overall decision to purchase a pair of running shoes for your child may include:

       Quality – since it is a kid’s second nature to be adventurous and run about, kids’ shoes are subject to a significant amount of wear and tear. Thus, it is important to keep in mind the durability of the material when buying kids’ shoes. The material should also be aerated enough to prevent undesirable odours from overuse.
       Size – not all kids have proportional feet; buying shoes that are too narrow can result in severe blisters and stunted growth of the feed. It is better to buy shoes that are slightly larger since that gives the kids’ feet more space while running and it also provides some room for growth.
       Width and weight are also factors that should be considered when buying shoes – kids on the heavier side of the weigh scale may require shoes which provide greater support while lighter shoes are generally better for walking large distances.

Women’s sports shoes also require some of the same characteristics that are present in kids’ running shoes. A balance between comfort, support and durability are essential. A few extra features may include reflective labels, for night-time jogs and such. But the point of difference here is the fit; for women’s shoes, the fit should be along the lines of having a few centimetres of gap between the longest toe and the tip of the shoe, with the heel being able to move but not slipping. Breathability should be optimized and if the fit is as mentioned above, comfort is maximized as well. A pair of decent running shoes can go a long way towards one’s health as well. Wearing the wrong type of shoes can lead a number of quite severe disorders such as:

       Bunions – deformities in the joints of the foot.
       Athlete’s foot – a fungal infection that causes flaking, itching and scaling on the affected region. It is primarily caused by ill-fitting, sweaty and tight footwear.
       Ingrown nails

Thus, it is in the best interests of any individual purchasing shoes to be able to select a pair of shoes that meet all the criteria for a comfortable period of use.
