Behind every great runner is a lot of dedication and a really comfortable running sneaker. Aside from working up the endurance needed to tackle a long distance run, the hardest part about running is quite possibly finding the perfect running shoe.
The quality of your sneakers can make or break your entire run. If you’re not comfortable and well supported with your running sneakers, it can lead to added joint pain, muscle cramps, and even injury. Running sneakers should be lightweight and move with your foot like you’re walking on air. They also need to contain arch support and secure laces.
We found the best women’s running sneakers on the market, according to customer reviews. Don’t let your worn out sneakers hold you back a second more, shop for a new pair of sneakers on SHEfinds.
Most Comfortable Women’s Running Sneakers
Under Armor HOVR Phantom ($130)
"I tried them on and they feel so light and soft and easy to put on. I took them to the gym and I was able to run comfortably. I could never run because my shoes always gave my feet cramps but wow these are amazing."
Asics GT-2000 5 ($74.95)
" This shoe is Uh-MAZing! From the minute I put it on, it was comfortable and supportive, and such a great color combo (pink and navy). I have gone for two runs without my chiropractic inserts that were needed in my old shoes, and my feet felt great the whole time."
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18 ($120)
" For me, it appears the 18s will be a return to happy, comfortable running! I've only done two short runs in them since they arrived, and I think there will be a brief break-in period which is normal for me these days, but overall the shoes feel good. The redesigned no-fuss upper is soft and streamlined. The toe box is vastly improved from the 17s - length is true to size and there's a bit more wiggle room. Insole is firm and supportive but also springy and provides great energy return that keeps my legs feeling fresh. This shoe gives me the pronation control I need, but it still allows my feet to roll naturally through each foot fall, so my steps are light and quiet on the pavement."
Nike Free TR Flyknit 2 ($94.99, originally $119.99)
New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v4 ($99.99)
"I am in heaven. I have a very hard foot to fit. My foot is wide, toes rub on top of toebox, terrible bunions. I have 2 pairs already and going to order a third. The knit fabric around toe box has the ability to stretch where needed. These are a great find. It takes about 30 pairs before finding one, SO HAPPY!"
Adidas Ultra Boost ($180)
"The Ultra Boosts are super comfortable, the midsole offers just the right balance between firm and soft, great responsiveness too. Low impact on joints, excellent shock absorption- have used for walking, running, elliptical and cycling with no issues. I will say that these may not be for everyone, if you're looking for an all-purpose gym shoe- as they're really geared mainly for running and have a primeknit upper- so may not have the ultra lateral/side to side support that you're looking for in high cardio workouts (for something like p90x or zumba)."
