28 Incredibly Lightweight Running Shoes

From Vibrant Lightweight Kicks to Foot-Cooling Kicks

— January 29, 2013 — Fashion
Lightweight running shoes can make all the difference when you're heading out on a long-distance trek and this collection features some of the most feather-like ones out there. Running shoes have come a long way from at first being heavy and structured to help give added support to now being as light as possible to increase mobility.

While lightweight running shoes might seem like a bit of a less supportive choice, they are actually quite the opposite. The selections here utilize the natural strength and form of the foot to help give a comfortable, light fit with support without added materials.

Whether you're heading out for a long-distance marathon or a jog around the block, these lightweight runners are just the ticket to help keep you moving.
