5 Cool Sneakers

The newest wave of tech-y kicks are all about making your workouts easier and more comfortable -- in fact, they do everything but actually run or walk for you. Check out these state-of-the-art sneaks.

  1. Customizable Fit

    The North Face's Amp Boa laces via a knob at the back of the heel -- no tying, just turn it. The result: Less slippage and fewer blisters! ($110; thenorthface.com)
  2. A Better Treadmill Workout

    The Asics GEL-Treadmill shoe has a tweaked support system that takes stride and foot-strike patterns (which are different when you run on a treadmill versus outside) into account. ($100; asics.com for a retailer, available in July)
  3. Increased Energy

    Brooks' Adrenaline GTS 7 running shoe "MoGo" midsole technology has more cushioning and durability, which keeps you going longer. ($95; brooksrunning.com)
  4. Fewer Injuries and Less Odor

    The design of the NIKE Women's Air Max 100DGRS helps reduce pronation, which can lead to shin splints and knee pain. Plus, the sides are made of mesh with "windows" around the heel. Buh-bye, sweaty pedis! ($90; nikewomen.com)
  5. Longer-Lasting Cushioning

    Adidas' Microbounce+ features a material called TPU that won't break down as fast as that in other shoes, even in tropical temps. ($110; shop adidas.com, available in July)

Extremely helpful, thank you. However, would you please explain more on the lactic acid build up and what it may lead to. I tend to have a lot of leg cramps, burnning and itchinness on my thighs legs during workouts that actually prevents me from potntially runnig or doing aerobic exercises. People think that it is bizare; which in a way it seems; but it is as real as it gets.
