Shoes for Women: Comfort and Style for Every Budget

Shoes 8.5 Women’s

Shoes 8.5 women’s are designed to fit well directly out of the box. They have extra-wide widths that may help reduce back and foot pain caused by flat feet. The outsole also offers flexible traction, which may help in more slippery environments.

To find your size, trace your foot on a piece of paper and measure the length and width. Remember that feet tend to swell throughout the day, so take measurements in the late afternoon.

Brooks Adrenaline GTS

A long-time runner favorite, this shoe features Brooks’s Guiderails holistic support system. It helps align your body’s natural motion path while keeping excess movement in check. It also has soft and light DNA LOFT v2 cushioning.

The uppers are made of an engineered spacer mesh with inner gusset and high-density printing. It’s a comfortable fit, and the toe-box is wide enough to allow your toes to wiggle and splay. It’s available in B-narrow, D-regular (reviewed), 2E and 4E extra wide widths.

The midsole is one continuous piece of their DNA Loft foam which is soft but not mushy like Hoka Clifton. There’s a slight bounce to this shoe which is good for those who prefer a slightly plush ride. It also has carbon infused rubber in the heel and softer rubber in the forefoot to stiffen up the transitions.

Nike Air Force 1

One of Nike’s most popular shoes in history, the Air Force 1 has endured generations of shifts in sneaker fashion and technology. Its low-profile silhouette has afforded a touch of effortless style to millions worldwide. From basic white sneakers to coveted collaborations, there’s something for every budget.

This Virgil Abloh-designed pair mixes bronze metallic tones and the jewel swoosh for a retro vibe. It also features a double Nike Air strip on the heel and tags along the laces. It’s a must-have for any shoe collection.

The all-leather AF1 was originally released as a regional exclusive in the early 2000s. Its inner city fan base kept it a consistent seller, and Nike intentionally limited supply to build hype. The OG white-on-white lows would later be worn by Hip-Hop artists like EZ Rock to become one of the most widely imitated shoes in history.

Nike Free 5.0

The Nike Free 5.0 is one of those shoes that gets better with every new iteration. It has a soft, pliable upper made from a stretchy mesh, fused synthetic suede overlays and flywire cord based lacing. The upper feels a little softer than the 2014 version and is less baggy, especially at the base of the big toe.

The outsole has a few new things on it as well. It has a more refined layout for the square lugs that reduces transition gaps, takes pressure off of the toe and heel areas, and helps with foot placement.

The shoe is best for short training runs and drills and is a great choice for runners who want to work on getting the feel of barefoot running with the protection of a shoe. It’s also a good choice for those who run mostly on blacktop and like to minimize shoe wear.

Adidas Adrenaline GTS

The Adrenaline GTS 22 offers the runner reliable stability and cushioning. It is great for daily training and tempo runs. The shoe handles long distances and speeds well. It is a little stiffer than the softer Ghost 14 or Launch 8, but this can help with efficient transitions and speedy workouts.

The shoe’s midsole is 100% DNA Loft. The material feels softer on initial step-in, but still provides ample support and comfort. The segmented crash pad and Omega flex grooves allow for the foot to move in a more natural way, from strike to toe-off.

The GuideRails holistic support system acts like bumpers in a bowling alley to keep excess movement in check and the runner on their natural gait path. Runners that overpronate will appreciate the stability of this shoe.

Nike Free 4.0

The Nike Free 4.0 is a running shoe that combines the innovative technologies of Nike Air technology and the lightweight Flyknit upper. It is a versatile shoe that can be worn for a variety of activities including running, lifting weights and casual wear. The shoe has a comfortable fit and can be easily slipped on without untying the laces.

The shoes are designed with a hexagonal flex pattern on the outsole to mimic your natural foot’s slight lateral roll. This feature is intended to help you run faster. The shoe also features a midsole made of phylite foam, which is lighter than traditional blown rubber.

The shoe has a 6 mm heel-to-toe drop, and carbon rubber pieces are placed under the toe and in the heel for added stability. It is an excellent choice for runners who want to experience the barefoot feeling while wearing a supportive shoe.
