Best Gym Shoes For Women-Working Out To Stay Fit

Hi, here I am again with ‘Best Gym Shoes For Women’. Not long ago, I wrote an article on

Best Gym Shoes For Women
Best Gym Shoes For Women

the best gym shoes for men, and I thought it wise to also write for our ‘Ladies’. It is only fair isn’t it? That’s right, women also workout, if not more than the men. Ok, maybe not more than the men do, but the truth is that women do workout! They go to the gym, hike, run, name it. They are damn very good. That is why, it is important to give them some pointers of the best shoes they could use.

The good thing about these shoes, is that, they are not strictly for the gym alone, they can be used for hiking and running too. You might say a multipurpose, you might as well use them for just walking around, yes.

But seriously, they are useful for any kind of workouts. And it will be an advantage to acquire one, if you have not gotten one. So, below are the few I have taking out the time to review, and I bet you will like them.

But before the review, I will like to quickly add that, having a good workout shoe will do you a great deal of good. It will provide you with the comfort, protection/safety, maximizes result and even gives you a smart look. It has been proven that a bad shoe could cause foot injury. The ‘cost’ of any of these shoes can never be compared to the benefits it will offer you. Therefore, I would rather say it is inexcusable not to get one, if you are really working out.

Like the popular saying goes; any thing worth doing at all, is worth doing well. If you are working out/exercising for good health and image, then why would you jeopardize that effort and objective by not getting all the necessary resources you need. I guess you know the answer to that. Make taking care of ‘you’ a priority!

Someone may ask, why would she not go for a cheaper shoe instead. Now it’s easy, you can always go for a cheaper shoe, but in reality you get what you paid for. In other words, these cheaper shoes are not designed exclusively with all the technology that could offer your feet the ‘comfort and safety’ it requires. It may not even withstand the test of time, in terms of durability.

In case you don’t know, bad shoes can cause more havoc to the feet than good.  And if i may ask, why would you spend money on a shoe that is cheap, only for it not to be right for the purpose you bought it for, let alone lasting considerably. I think it would be a ‘penny wise, a pound foolish’ action.

  1. I hate to admit it, but I have never taken the time or effort to have a pair of shoes that were just for running and I run every day! I have always just worn my regular tennis shoes and knew I should do better. Looking through your women’s best gym shoes, I really love the New Balance Fresh Foam shoes. The breathable mesh on top is great and with their rating, I think I need to look into a pair for myself!

    1. Hi Michelle,

      I am glad you love it. It will be an added advantage to your running if you get one of those. You will surely feel the difference.

  2. Hello! This is a great post and thank you so much for sharing that info with us!!
    I have been a runner for 4 years and I am always on the search for a good pair of running shoes! I have to admit with you that bad shoes can cause a number of problems to your feet and maybe even your back especially when you have to stand on you feet from prolonged periods of time!
    I will be purchasing one of those soon! Thank you again!

  3. Congratulations for this detailed and useful review of the best gym shoes for women. I can see that you have taken into consideration different features that make them really perfect for working out. I like the ASICS Women’s Gel-Excel33-3 for the support and protection they offer.

  4. I wear Asics and can attest that they are very comfortable (I’m in my early 20’s). I’d say I have an average arch, so I guess they are good all around!
