Saucony Kineta Relay
Running shoes as a style accessory has become more and more popular over the years. Starting out as much less complex, a thinner body similar to a tennis shoe, evolving through the Nike Air trends of bigger, bulkier but lightweight design to today’s more fashionable runner which is either loud and bright or sleek and monochrome. Runners have also adapted significantly in regards to the weight of the product. Technological advances have created supportive and cushioned options that are also sleek and lightweight. Materials have gone from cheap and heavy rubbers to durable and lightweight rubber alternatives (like EVA which is very common in running shoes). There are also different types of runners on the market now for different purposes like sport-specific runners (basketball, tennis, hiking, etc.) and even different variation on the running shoe runner like trainers. Brand names have become popular as well depending on the products purchased. Nike and Adidas created a market of fashion-forward designs intended for nightclub wear rather than running.
