What is the difference between Running, Sport & Other shoes?

Women's running and sports shoes are designed to protect your feet from the impacts and stresses of vigorous sports and activities. Because they are also designed to be as lightweight as possible, running and sports shoes are usually made for a specific type of activity and for this reason it's important to match the shoe to the sport or workout you intend on doing. While it can be tempting to use a pair of cross trainers for your runs (or running shoes for cross training), it's not a good idea as this can increase your risk of developing injuries in your feet, knees and heels.

Running shoes, for example, are purpose built for forward, heel-to-toe motion so they help your feet withstand the repetitive impacts on the footpath or trail. On the other hand, sports shoes such as cross trainers aren't designed to withstand the same level of impact force. But they are designed to withstand greater lateral force so are great all-rounders for different activities like gym workouts and aerobics.

What to look for when buying Sport & Running Shoes for women?

What you look for in your outdoor footwear for women will largely depend on the activity you'll be using your shoes for. Let's take a look at a few things to consider before making a purchase.


Most women's running or sports shoes from reputable brands like Asics and Adidas will be made from material that is suited to the activity they're made for. For example, running shoes are usually made from strong, lightweight materials to help you move faster, while cross trainers are often made from heavier materials that offer more support.


Comfort is important with any type of shoe, but this is especially true when it comes to sports and running shoes. If your shoes are not comfortable it can affect the way you move and this in turn can cause an injury.

Fit for purpose

Shoe companies have spent years researching how to customise shoes to support the wearer in a specific activity. For this reason, always wear shoes that are made for the activity you're doing as subtle differences in construction and material can make a lasting impact and strain on your body.


Of course, you want your shoes to fit. But with running shoes especially, it's important to find a shoe that fits your foot size and also, it's shape. Many running and sports shoe brands will offer different shoe widths in addition to length to ensure you get a shoe that fits as it should. Shoes that are too wide or too narrow can cause blisters, discomfort and more serious injuries.

What Shoe Accessories do I need?

It's always a good idea to clean and maintain your shoes to make sure they go the extra mile and stay fresh while they're at it. Check out our women's footwear accessories page to ensure your sports or running shoes go the distance.
