Barefoot-style shoes like the Vibram Fivefingers and Merrell Barefoot are and will continue to be a very small niche. It’s hard to know from general sales data how much of the recent decline in sales is due to curiosity about toe shoes having died off, and how much is due to the category as a whole dying away. Some will find zero-drop, minimally cushioned shoes to be an answer to their problems, others Nike Roshe Run Femme will try them and have trouble. I value them as casual shoes Nike Internationalist Dame and training tools, but I prefer shoes with a bit more cushion for Nike Cortez Femme most of my running. I think the category will, and should, remain, but Asics Gel Lyte 3 Dame will never dominate the market. Lightweight is where it’s at right now. The Nike Frees are killing it in terms of sales, and I would dispute the claim that people aren’t running in them – spend five minutes on any college campus and you will see them on the feet of many of the students running about (I had one student this semester who said she owned like 8 pairs and ran most of her marathon buildup in them). I have several women in my beginner 5K group who are running in them. Yes, they are popular as fashion shoes, but they are decent running shoes as well.I myself made the jump all the way to barefoot-style shoes, and have migrated back a bit to a sweet-spot that includes light, low-drop shoes Nike Air Vapormax Femme with some cushioning. Shoes like the Saucony Kinvara/Mirage and Nike Air Pegasus 89 Femme Brooks PureProject are often my first recommendations to runners as Nike Air Max Zero Femme they are a good starting point from which people can migrate either upward or downward to find their own sweet spot. My hope is that this category represents the new center of the running shoe spectrum. Motion control shoes are dying away as a shoe choice for runners, but like ultraminimal they have a place for those who have had success in them. Traditional categories are still doing well, and there’s nothing wrong with that. A lot of runners have had long-term success in traditional shoes, and some who have tried more minimal shoes have not found them to be a good fit and have gone back to more traditional models. Top selling shoes are still traditional models like the Brooks Adrenaline, Asics Nimbus, Asics Gel lyte 5 Dame Saucony Guide, etc. I don’t enjoy running in shoes in this www.homoludens.fr mold, but I also don’t see any compelling reason why somebody who Adidas Superstar Womens has had long-term success in a shoe like this should make a switch. We are blessed by variety. This is the lasting benefit that has come out of the minimalist/barefoot trend. We now have more variety than ever, and the most pressing issue now is how to choose. It remains an exciting time to be a shoe geek!
