The emergence of The ‘Sportstyle’ Shoe
The biggest ranges available now are referred to as ‘Retro’ or ‘Originals’. I consider this new breed of shoes to fall under the category of ‘Sportstyle’. These are found in bigger retailers & also the fashion footwear stores.
They are cleverly named after their technical shoe counter parts and although somewhat similar in appearance they are vastly different in structure and support and not recommended for breaking a sweat.
Asics have a very good shoe called Kayano, with 3 colour options and 2 width options providing 5 models in the technical range.
Asics Tiger Kayano the sportstyle range has 3 different models & with different colour options provides a range of 20 models. People are often drawn towards the appearance and mistakenly think the Kayano name means they have bought themselves a great training shoe.
