Running shoes are made specifically to provide more protection to your feet than regular shoes. A midsole protects you from feeling hard objects as you run over them, and absorbs more of the impact from each step you take. The softer the midsole, the greater the cushioning and protection.

Mesh running shoes, which provide durability and breathability. Variable lacing systems, which help customize shoe fit, and a durable heel counter, which stabilizes the heel.
