If you are just a casual walker, you can go for a pair of normal sports shoes. However if you are a die-hard athlete, you can opt for running shoes as these shoes come with adequate cushioning and comfort required for extreme activities.

#2 The solid colours look manly! Look for softer shades

Choose a pair of black or dark grey sports shoes and your pair looks no different than a pair meant for men. As a woman, you can go for white or any other lighter shade which looks distinct and make your feet look attractive.

#3 A good fit is really important

If you are buying ladies footwear like a pair of sports shoes for walking, the material of the shoes does not matter. Make sure that the shoes have a good fit. Avoid wearing a pair that is even slightly loose as it increases the chances of shoe bites and other foot problems.

#4 Mesh Upper – Do you really need it?

Most sports shoes have the upper portion made of a material called ‘mesh’. This material is usually essential when you are going to use the sports shoes for running as it generates a lot of heat which needs to be ventilated. However, if you are going to use it for walking, you can go for ladies footwear with little or no mesh on the upper portion.

#5 The sole is the soul of your shoes – Know your sole mate

Usually, there are two types of soles used in sports shoes. The Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) a type of sole which is light and good at absorbing shock. If you are buying running shoes, you can opt for ones with EVA sole. The other type of sole is Polyurethane (PU) which is thicker and denser than EVA sole but it is a little heavy which makes it uncomfortable for the runners. If you want a pair of regular walking shoes, you can opt for shoes with PU sole. These Just Go shoes come with round shape tip with EVA sole in zigzag pattern to give you comfort with style.
