This post on stylish athletic shoes for women has been made possible by a product provided for review. All opinions are mine and mine alone.
I love athletic shoes … actually I love all shoes but athletic shoes are generally the most practical shoes for my lifestyle and my health. I do a lot of running around. If I am not taking care of things at home, I am driving the kids around or running errands for the family. As much as I admire those women who grocery shop in three inch heels, it’s just not happening for me. I still have an image of the typical 50s housewife wearing a dress and high heels as she mops and vacuums the house. While I love the comfort that I have when I wear athletic shoes, finding stylish athletic shoes for women is another thing entirely and often leaves me frustrated.
Stylish Athletic Shoes for Women
Most athletic shoes look exactly like what they are. They are intended for aerobics, jogging and heading to the gym. Lately, many of the athletic shoes I see in the store are neon blue and pink with yellow soles. While I love the bright colors and eye catching patterns to help motivate me while I’m sweating to the oldies, it’s not really a look I want when I head out for lunch with my friends or to a meeting at school. Thankfully, Dansko has stylish athletic shoes for women that will give me the support and comfort I want without sacrificing style or making it look like I belong in the gym.
The Dansko Elise is an athletic shoe that has a neoprene collar to keep your foot snug without constricting movement. It is a lightweight, flexible shoe that offers the same support and comfort that I have come to expect from Dansko. It has a slip resistant outer sole that makes it perfect for those that work in a hospital setting but it looks so stylish you can easily wear it just about anywhere. It looks good with my yoga pants if I do decide to head to the gym or my jeans when I am out running errands. The soft suede makes these perfect for dressier occasions where you need comfort but don’t want to sacrifice style.
I love that Dansko’s Sedona outsole carries the Seal of Acceptance from the APMA (American Podiatric Medical Association). With my foot problems, it is important to me to know that the shoe I’m wearing isn’t going to make my problems any worse. I can easily wear the Dansko Elise all day and not have any heel pain at all.
The Dansko Elise is available in a variety of different colors including black, white, brown, grey, mocha, navy, red and slate. Different accent colors are available as well.
Dansko is a sponsor for the Fashionista Events Giveaway beginning on October 3rd. You will have a chance to win a pair of Dansko shoes from the Sedona line in this giveaway starting on October 3rd.
