Enjoy that last glass of champagne on New Year’s Eve, because like millions of American women, you’ve promised yourself to head to the gym first thing on Jan. 1. But we all know that come March, your enthusiasm has likely dwindled, and you’re back to binge-watching “Game of Thrones” after work.
To encourage those who tend to give up on their exercise regimen too soon, a pair of colorful training shoes might be just the encouragement to break that habit. And since an exercise plan can be on a simple run or walk through the park, there are lots of performance walking and running styles available that marry fashion and function.
Comfort brand Easy Spirit offers its Highclass sneaker, featuring proprietary Triflexa technology, a three-layer cushioning system.
Also known for its women’s-only offerings is Ryka. Its Dynamic 2 Training shoe has a high-impact N-Gage EVA energy-return midsole for enhanced comfort while sweating it out.
Vionic has its Tourney Walker, which features a firm yet flexible removable orthotic, then dresses up in a colorful floral print.
Performance brand New Balance has the WX811 training shoe, with a comfortable padded tongue and collar, while Nike’s Metcon 1 training shoe is designed for stability in heavy lifts and optimal comfort for distance runs and day-to-day abuse.
There’s also Adidas’ Ultra Boost, with energy-return cushioning and a breathable Primeknit upper for a flexible and supportive fit.
So go ahead and get fit!
