Which shoe are you best off wearing? – The latest reviews
Sport-loving women are likely to favour high-quality sport-specific shoes, while women looking for a little extra protection can look to the higher-end sport-ready models that feature high-grade, rubber-filled soles.
In an interview with US magazine Style, fashion writer and fashion editor Laura Rind said that “the only shoe that comes to mind” is the Nike Zoom 3 Sport, while the Nike Xtreme II “is probably my favorite shoe”.
However, it’s not all good news for those who want to get the most out of their sneakers, as the latest research shows that the majority of women who prefer high-end footwear will be unable to achieve a similar level of comfort with a pair of low-quality sports shoes.
According to the study by shoe-maker Adidas, the “low quality” Nike Zoom 4 Sport and Nike Xtra 2 “are not only more expensive than the Nike Sport 3, but also tend to be too stiff, too soft, and they often come with extra padding”.
It’s not just shoes either.
For women who do choose high-value footwear, there’s no doubt they will find it to be a little bit difficult to find the perfect pair.
The research shows the majority are likely not going to be able to achieve the same level of style, comfort and style versatility as men.
However, when it comes to shoes, it seems that women are often the ones who end up being “in the middle”.
“I think it’s definitely a good thing that women have the freedom to choose the shoe they want, but I think we all have that same feeling of being in the middle of things,” Rind told Style.
“It’s a very human experience, where you are always choosing between a pair or two, and you don’t always get to decide which you like better.”
“It’s very rare that you’re going to find a shoe that’s a ‘perfect’ shoe, but it’s still important to understand that it’s going to have a different experience for different women,” she added.
“The key to making a choice is to find one that feels comfortable and that fits your body and your personality.
You need to feel comfortable with it, but the thing is, you’re also going to want to wear it.
So, you might have to make the same choice between a different shoe, and I think that’s something we can all look forward to.”
