#8: Women’s UA Charged Breathe Lace Up Shoes
Color selection: Pink/French Gray (above), Black/Jet Gray, White/X-Ray, White/White, Blue Ink/Frost Peach.
Uses: Can be used for a variety of reasons, from racing to fashion!
Review: Personally, I find these shoes to have a very sleek style that resembles today’s fashion trends. Another feature is that the shoes do not contain the traditional lace, but have a new mechanism that does not require any laces! It is described as a slip-on shoe, which is great for convenience and speed! However, this shoe is more expensive, and this is perhaps the only negative aspect of this shoe.

Uses: The website describes this show as a training shoe, which means it provides the perfect amount of cushion during regular periods of exercise (with or without equipment).
Review: I would recommend this shoe to an avid weightlifter. The insoles provide enough support, comfort and cushion, all necessary for a good lifting shoe. Also, I love the style of this shoe! It has a variety of colors to choose from, and it’s a fun shoe to wear!

#5: Women’s Erupt Trail Running Shoe
Color Selection: Silver Cloud/Ignite Pink (shown above), Puma Black/Mist Green, Overcast/Bleu Turquoise, Puma Black/Blue Glimmer
Uses: Although traditionally a trail shoe for hiking or running, these shoes can be a great addition for a fashionista.
Review: These shoes offer a pop of color and with the four color options, the range of shades is satisfying enough for everyone! In addition, the shoes are in the popular “chunky” format, which means that the soles are extremely thick. It would be a fun piece to add to your shoe collection and an investment in its own right.

Review: I love this shoe because it’s more affordable than many other shoes and still brings a sleek design and color palette to the table. The midsole is extremely lightweight as Puma introduced a new form of sole technology to the market. All in all, it is the perfect training shoe for someone new to a gym with its affordable price and fashion.
Price: The Puma White/Rose Gold and CASTLEROCK/Metallic Silver are $39.99 while the Puma Black/Gold Shoe is currently sold out on Puma’s website.
#3: Nike Flex Experience RN 8

Uses: This shoe is a running shoe
Conclusion: This shoe is a relatively common shoe for its price as well as its simple design. While some may prefer the flamboyant colors of other shoes, I much prefer the monochromatic, polished look this shoe offers. It’s one of the best running shoes you can find for the price, so I would recommend it to all my fellow runners.
