Running on a treadmill is a little different than running on a track or trail which is why it’s important to consider your footwear carefully. If you’re looking for the best shoes for treadmill walking or running, you’re in the right place. We researched some of the best-selling, top-rated products out there to help you find the right treadmill running shoes for you. Before we get started, let’s take a look at some of the key features to keep in mind.
Gender: We found some great shoes for both men and women in our research. There are some differences between men’s and women’s shoes though as long as you get the right size, it doesn’t matter which one you choose.
Size Range: We were pretty impressed with the size range we found for both men’s and women’s shoes. For men, we found something in sizes 6.5 to 16. For women, you’ll find options for sized 5 to 12.
Color Options: Color options vary from shoe to shoe. Most of these are pretty subdued and come in variations of gray, blue, black, and white although you will find some bright pops of color with some of these options.
Shoe Material: Most of these shoes have synthetic uppers that are textile or even faux leather. Some even have real leather accents. The most important thing to remember is to choose something that’s breathable.
Rubber Sole: Rubber soles are great because they provide a good grip and are pretty durable. That said, there are plenty of synthetics that do a great job, too. You don’t need a rubber sole but it’s a really great option.
Maximum Width: One of the best things about the shoes we picked is that they really do cover a wide range of sizes. In fact, you can find medium, wide, and extra wide options on our list.
