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.
Skechers GOrun 2 Comfortable!

Reviewer: Nicole from Boston, MA
Literally, the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn! The second I put them on I was in love. I felt like they were already broken in. Sneakers with thicker soles and stiffer material often make my feet cramp and ache. These are a dream come true. Seriously.

Reviewer: Meredith from Bismarck, ND
I was fully satisfied with the shoes I bought. I really hesitated to buy online because shoes for me are really hard to fit. JC penney use to sell this brand but don't anymore so this was really my only choice. They do kind of pinch where they bend at the toe but I do believe they will break in. Hopefully. I thought the service was fast and buying them this way was very easy.
Wears this shoe: now only at home until they break in but to work when they do

Reviewer: Ally from Indiana New Balance is the only company that makes an athletic shoe in my size, 13 N, in a variety of styles and colors. I'm so happy with the navy color. I've never been unhappy with a pair of New Balance shoes.

Reviewer: Marcia from United States
I bought these shoes because they were different.They look really nice on, and are very comfortable.Also the shoe strings stay tied, which for many shoesthey always come undone. The laces are the correct sizefor the grommets also. Lots of colors I can wear themwith. Would like to own some more of them.
Wears this shoe: Every other day.
