Holiday Gift Guide: Footwear for Athletes

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

athletic shoes

I may only run on the treadmill, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know a thing or two about the importance of proper athletic footwear. Way back in the day, before I found solace in sequins and leopard print, I use to play nearly every sport. For those who know me this may be a shocker…keep in mind I never said I was GOOD at these sports. During my “I want to be just like Brandy Chastain’ stage, I cared little about proper footwear and today I pay the price with two fluid-filled knees (GROSS) and my joints’ newly found ability to sense cold weather.

If you don’t want to end up running a block only to have to stop and ice your knees, pay close attention to what you slide your feet into. Those neon kicks may accessorize well with your new sports bra or athletic shorts but are they really improving your health and performance?

Help the athlete in your life look good and feel good with some of the top sporting footwear for both men and women.
