Women’s training has seen marked improvements since the days Jane Fonda put her Reebok Freestyles to work in a fitness craze for the ages. Since then, companies have refined their styles and the modern workout is far different from its elder counterpart. With that said, women’s workout styles now lean toward low cut models like Nike’s Lunar Hyperworkout XTa light, flexible, and supportive model for those who desire less shoe and more support.
New Balance plays a critical hand this season with their Minimus Women’s Cross, a shoe built with maximum effort with minimal materials en route to a shoe fit for any woman of the “minimalist movement”. Ryka produces the Exertion, a shoe built with female foot structure in mind. Lastly, tabbed as the shoe that trains your foot, only Nike could design the contour fitting Free TR Fit 2 which offers a lightweight, almost barefoot feel that will flex and strengthen your toes as you train.
