Regardless of whether you’ve just started your running journey, or you’re a seasoned marathon runner, a new pair of running shoes still represents commitment to your sport.

A couple of important points about women’s running shoes are:

  • If you’d prefer a women’s specific running shoe, then Altra have introduced their Fit4HerTM technology which has a narrower heel and midfoot, a higher instep, a longer arch and unique metatarsal spacing, than the men’s counterpart.
  • The standard width for women’s running shoes is B, but some shoes are available in a wider fitting. The sizes available in women’s running shoes online are typically UK5 to UK8, but if a size outside this range is needed it may be possible to accommodate this so it’s worth calling our customer services to check. For a larger fit, it would be realistic for a ladies to wear a men’s shoe, however it is worth remembering that men’s shoes are generally wider too.

Ideally you will have already visited one of Up & Running’s stores for gait analysis and so you will know whether you’re a neutral runner, or whether you need some support to protect you and prevent your ankles rolling in or out while running.

Check out the gait analysis blog it may help you understand about different running styles, which will make it easier for you to choose your next pair of running shoes.

When buying your running shoes, you need to consider:

  • Do you know whether you need a neutral shoe, mild support or stability shoe? Have a look at our gait analysis guide it may help you to choose. Better still visit one of the Up & Running stores and have your gait analysed for free. For runners who don’t need any correction then popular neutral shoes would be the Saucony Ride, Mizuno Wave Rider or ON Cloudflow. Examples of shoes with mild support are the ON Cloudflyer, Saucony Guide or Brooks Adrenaline GTS. There are lots more to choose from though so you can break down your search by selecting shoe type.
  • Where will you be doing most of your running – around the town, on good trail paths or do you head seriously off-road? So are you looking for a road shoe, a trail shoe or an all terrain shoe? The Hoka One One Torrent is a popular trail shoe and equally you wouldn’t be disappointed using the Brooks Cascadia as an all terrain option.
  • How much cushioning do you need? The stack height is the amount of cushioning between your foot and the ground. At the top end of the spectrum, maximum cushioning will give you that plush bouncy experience. For new runners look for a medium stack height, but If you are looking for a racing shoe, you will want a lower stack height so that you can feel the ground and achieve a greater push-off. Check out the stack height blog for more cushioning advice.

    Good luck and happy running!
