Athletic footwear encompasses a wide range of specified products to enhance the ability to participate in sports.

Athletic shoes often include comfort features to protect the foot and ankle in activity. Additional cushioning support and arch support are types of these athletic shoe enhancements.
Running is both a competition and a type of training for sports that have running or endurance components. As a sport, it is split into events divided by distance and sometimes includes permutations such as the obstacles in steeplechase and hurdles. Running races are contests to determine which of the competitors is able to run a certain distance in the shortest time. Today, competitive running events make up the core of the sport of athletics. Events are usually grouped into several classes, each requiring substantially different athletic strengths and involving different tactics, training methods, and types of competitors.
New Balance Leadville 1210 Great ultra shoe
June 04, 2013
Reviewer: Greg from Maine
Stick rubber, great cushion for mountain downhill,medial plate, very spacious, durable very breathable and allows water to escape fast.Runs 1 full size too big compared to other NB shoes.I use this shoe for AT running and anything over 12 miles or so. Otherwise, I run with the Patagonia Forerunner without the medial plate and the extra cushion.

Purchased for my husband who hates shopping. These replace similar New Balance that gave long service. He said they were comfortable, wore them all day the first day "out of the box",and continues to wear them daily.

Reviewer: SeniorPapa from Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Initially, I was worried about the cost/benefit but as soon as I wore these the first time I realized they were the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever worn!I almost lost my right foot in an auto accident 7 years ago and live with foot pain on a daily basis and these shoes help reduce that pain. I highly recommend these to anyone!
