Why Women Should Wear the Right Running Stuff

Women can sometimes find it hard to search for sports stuff designed especially for them. Even runners, who basically require shoes and clothes, may have trouble finding their needs. For this reason, some women settle for other alternatives. However, just like finding a partner, if Mr. Right is elusive, you don’t settle for Mr. Right Now. So here are important reminders why women should wear the right running stuff.

Shoes: Leave the Men Shoes Alone!

Do you know the saying “if the shoe fits, wear it?” If you’re going to take that literally, make sure it’s a women’s shoe. Because some women prefer wearing men’s running shoes because that extra space can be quite cozy. But remember that it’s a shoe, and not a sofa. Despite the comfort, men’s shoes are not anatomically designed for women. It may not seem like it, but you may be opening yourself up for a potential injury if you continue to wear men’s shoes. Wearing footwear either than running—like sneakers or walking shoes—also puts your feet in danger.

Running shoes are engineered to take the beating from regular runs and marathons. Walking shoes or sneakers lack the cushioning to keep your feet safe in the long run. Take the Antares VII for example. The Lotto women’s shoes has the cushioning and fit specifically designed for women.

Clothes: It’s No Longer the 80s

In the 80s, sweats were the norm. Sweatpants, sweatshirts made mostly from cotton were worn by runners. Guess what, that was light years ago. So if you’re wearing that or plan to wear it, you may need a time machine or you belong in a museum. Seriously ladies, ditch the sweats and cotton. Sweats are heavy and get heavier as you perspire. Cotton soaks up sweat and the moisture takes a lot of time to dry. This is the era of technical wear, and it’s not bad. Technical clothes are light and wick sweat away from your skin, leaving you feeling fresh and cooled off. Compression clothing is also categorized as technical wear, so you can choose between it and typical technical wear. Whatever you decide on wearing though, make sure you’re comfortable.

Another upside of technical wear is its design. It actually looks like something you would wear if you want to hang around town. It has that stylish ‘lifestyle wear’ looks. So yeah, not only are you staying fit as you run, but you look glamorous as well.

Accessories: Not jewelry, but “Active Accessories”

Several years ago, accessories meant things like a choker or bracelets. In running, accessories have taken a whole new meaning. A high tech meaning, at that. Activity trackers are the ‘flavor of the month’ when it comes to accessories. Why bother with an activity tracker? The gadget has several benefits, which includes GPS, heart rate monitor and pedometer. Some even have sleep monitors. The drawback is activity trackers can be expensive. But if you really want to take fitness to another level, then go for it girl. You can also buy a sports watch, like the ones from Soleus, which also has GPS, heart rate monitor and other features.

Anyway, you can get the gadgets at a more affordable price at online shops. It just takes a little patience and timing when it comes to spotting sales and offers, which of course, you’re really great at. So settle for the right stuff.
