So winter is closer to an end and we’re ready to purchase a new, elegant pair of shoes. The weather might still be somewhat depressing, but the training must be resumed. And I need to stock up on a new pair of shoes, whether from a cheap supermarket, from a salon or from the footwear wholesalers. Nike shoes may be the most popular brand of athletic shoes on the market, but there are many others, and recent years have seen more creativity in women’s athletic shoes both in design and style.
In fact, there are wayyy too many footwear wholesalers and the manufacturers of athletic shoes out there, and far too many to review here. But the good news for us running ladies is that the manufacturers are in high competition with their most comparable rivals, which keeps both quality and pricing to the advantage of we consumers. Still, I find it deeply offensive that a pair of Nikes can cost 60 Euros – about 1/4 of what I earn each month.
Almost all companies that manufacture athletic shoes and serve as footwear wholesalers these days have gotten wind of the new, innovative technology that has been consistently improving the quality of athletic shoes for every type of sport. The computers can calculate the optimal shape of the sole and the teflon-infused rubber is much more durable than it used to be. We really are spoilt for choice these days. Still, it’s 2015 and I still don’t have Marty McFly’s self-tying shoes.
I will just end on emphasising that when it comes to choosing the right athletic footwear, it’s not worth skimping on the cost unless you’re just purchasing for fashion purposes. Protective athletic footwear protects you from the hard knocks that can come with high-impact exercise, and the better the quality, the better that protection.
