One reviewer wrote, “Ultraboosts have always been my perfect workout shoe and my perfect running shoe. This new model is even better than past models. I love the new colorways! They're so beautiful and make the shoes able to be worn with a nice outfit while still keeping you looking polished. They are more firm in the front, so your foot doesn't move around (especially if you're doing side to side runs or trying to stop on a turn quickly).”

“I love these! They are very comfortable and good for running and cardio workouts. I love the way they look too. I am normally a 7.5 and sometimes an 8. I had to get the 8 in these.”


“I purchased the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 about four months ago for a 10k. I’ve completed all of my training in them, including boot camp and cycling. They have held their shape and still look brand new. I’ve even had to wash them once because they were looking dingy. I opt to wear a stability running shoe for distances over 6 miles, but these are lightweight and perfect for my shorter runs. I bought a second pair for casual use because my feet adore them and now refuse to find comfort in anything else.”

“I absolutely loved these shoes when introduced to them. Was making the switch from stability to neutral, and these were just the trick. They hug your foot, which may be harder if you have larger feet, but I love the feel. Other reviews talked about them adding a noticeable spring to your step while running, and I definitely found that to be true.”

Under Armour

“Love these sneakers for running, or even just walking around the city. Incredibly comfortable and enough support. Also, they look amazing and I get compliments on them every time I wear them, so that's a plus!”

“I purchased these right before a half marathon because I was getting blisters with other shoes. I took these right out of the box on race day and my feet have thanked me since. They are snug but not tight and I had zero blisters or complaining about my feet right after this run. I will forever use these shoes. I can really see my running improve in the future with these shoes.”


These trainers are manufactured with mesh uppers that deliver a breathable, lightweight feel. Advanced gel technology supplies responsive cushioning and absorbs shock, making every stride more comfortable than the last.

Mom will have the most comfortable run ever in the ASICS Women's GT-2000 8 shoes. Features include FlyteFoam midsole technology that promises a responsive feel with each step and an innovative Dynamic DuoMax system that enhances support without compromising functionality.
