Women’s running shoes should have motion control, should be flexible, and should have lesser cushioning.
Why? Normally, there’s no marked difference between men and women’s running shoes. Any shoes that men may wear could also be worn by women without any reduced differences in performance or causing a possible health risk.
Experts tend to disagree though. The key difference between the sexes is physiology.
Since female had wider hips (relevant to childbearing), the end result would be that women’s legs tend to slant downwards at a greater angle from the hip to the ankles, a sharp contrast from the men who tend to have legs that are more splayed to the sides and toes pointing markedly in a 90° angle.
