Top Five Women’s Running Shoes For Fall

Top Five Women’s Running Shoes For Fall

When temps start dropping, so can motivation levels. That’s why changing seasons are the perfect excuse to change up your running shoes. Whether you need support, speed, or comfort, we’ve got you covered with more colors, sizes, styles, and brands of running shoes to help reinvigorate and re-inspire your fall workouts. Here are our top picks for fall running.

Support

Nike Lunar Glide 8

The Nike LunarGlide 8 is designed to keep feet fresh by bringing smooth stability to your longest runs.

Dynamic Flywire

Adjustable through the laces, Flywire cables allow you to choose your level of support and lockdown for a custom fit every time you lace up. Pull the laces tight, and make sure there’s no wiggle room for injury.

Dynamic Support System

Nike’s Dynamic Support System consists of soft foam nestled inside a firmer foam carrier. This combination of cushioning and support cuts down on weight while also creating a custom fit for every runner. The result is the perfect level of comfort for you. Every time you lace up.

Speed

UA Speedform Slingride

Under Armour first rose to popularity thanks to their comfortable and durable workout clothing. The SpeedForm Slingride takes that clothing technology and adapts it for your feet.

Dyneema

Ultra light and ultra strong, Dyneema is used in body armor, ship anchor lines, nets, chains, and now running shoes. These fibers are woven throughout the Slingride’s upper for a flexible, durable fit. The upper also uses zoned knit compression (just like workout clothes) to sling your foot forward from heelstrike to toe-off faster than ever before.

Charged Cushioning

The Slingride’s dual-density Charged Cushioning midsole combines soft foam layered over a firmer base for the perfect combination of comfort and support. The result turns every footstrike into an explosive takeoff for a more energized run than ever before.

Comfort

adidas Pure Boost X

You can’t go wrong with a shoe built just for the female foot. We have a full breakdown of the adidas Pure Boost X here, but the most important thing to remember is that it’s designed with you in mind.

Floating Arch

Unlike a traditional running shoe, the Pure Boost X disconnects the arch from the midsole, fully wrapping the foot in a snug, sock-like upper that supports your arch without limiting your range of motion.

Boost

Made up of tiny TPU capsules, adidas’ Boost technology has set a new standard in comfort. A literal spring in every step, these capsules compress and then store the exerted energy of impact, returning it to your stride at toe-off and propelling you forward.

ASICS GEL-Nimbus

Next up is the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 18. Sure to please beginners and serious runners alike, the Nimbus 18 is loaded with features designed to cushion and protect your feet so you can take on long runs with confidence.

GEL Cushioning

Rear- and forefoot GEL Cushioning units absorb the shock of repeated impact while allowing your foot to move naturally, letting you rack up the miles with ease.

Guidance Line

Guidance Line’s vertical flex grooves in the outsole encourage more flex in every stride, giving you a full range of motion, mile after mile.

New Balance Vazee 2090

The responsive New Balance Vazee 2090 is the perfect running partner. From its sleek, innovative styling to its dynamic fit, this neutral shoe is bound to stand out.

N2

Lightweight and low profile, N2 cushioning uses Nitrogen-infused foam and traditional REVlite to deliver a plush, cushioned feel that won’t slow you down with extra bulk and ounces. The result? A winning combination of comfort and speed.

Dynamic Construction

The entire upper of the Vazee 2090 is designed to move with your foot, expanding to allow natural movement with every step. Breathable, no-sew mesh eliminates the distraction caused by traditional seams and allows cooling airflow to keep you dry and comfortable from the first step to the last.

Ladies First: A Revolution In Running

Ladies First: A Revolution In Running

Adidas PureBoost

Thanks to adidas, “shrink it and pink it” may soon be a thing of the past — in the shoe world, at least. This month, the brand launched the revolutionary adidas Pure Boost X and Pure Boost X Trainer, running and training shoes designed specifically for the needs of the female foot.

Through the creation of more than 100 prototypes and three years of research, adidas learned that a woman’s foot moves differently than a man’s, expanding with almost every single movement. How did they learn this? With ARAMIS, a revolutionary motion-capture technology. ARAMIS measures strain and deformation, essentially creating a better understanding of how the foot moves and shifts with each step. The goal of the Pure Boost X line is to allow and support all of this natural movement.

Adidas PureBoost Boost

This starts with a breathable synthetic mesh upper that allows cooling airflow to keep your feet feeling dry and fresh. Beneath that is adidas’ incredible boost midsole cushioning. Made up of thousands of energy-returning capsules, boost charges each step and helps propel you forward for a faster, more efficient run. As an added bonus, boost also happens to be incredibly comfortable.

Now, this is where things get really interesting. Instead of using traditional shoe construction, adidas created a floating arch, leaving negative space between the upper and midsole. The result? A snug, supportive, sock-like fit unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. This disconnect between the upper and midsole means that your foot now has the freedom to move without restriction for the first ever truly natural run.

Adidas PureBoost Stretchweb

The Pure Boost X is finished with a Stretchweb outsole for durable traction that won’t restrict the expansion and movement of the boost midsole capsules. And the Pure Boost X Trainer outsole is designed with durable pivot points to enhance the explosive, sudden movements of your training routine.

In striving to combine form and function, adidas has permanently changed the shoe game. At Eastbay, we’re hopeful that the Pure Boost X and Trainer are just the beginning of a new trend in women’s footwear. After all, Get The Best To Be Your Best means using gear made just for you.
