Comfortable running shoes for women: More miles, less pain!
The fascination of running:
Running is more popular than any other sport. There are more than 100 million recreational runners registered in the US and Europe. Most people take up running to improve their health and fitness. However, although running has many advantages, it also poses risks, as shown by the high rate of injuries among runners. More than one third of runners experiences injuries or pain whilst preparing for a half or full marathon. Even recreational runners have problems – often because of unsuitable women’s running shoes.
Running places a great strain on your muscles, spine, toes, shins, ankles, hips and Achilles’ tendons. This makes comfortable shoes and a good running technique all the more important. Our women’s running shoes are developed by biomechanists and running experts, who focus on the following aspects during the design process:
- Women’s running shoes with toefreedom® enable your toes to spread naturally and act as an anchor and stabiliser for the whole body. This means you can move much more efficiently and healthily and prevent painful misalignments and cramped feet.
- Our comfortable running shoes for women are flat (zero drop). This allows you to adopt an anatomically correct posture. Most women’s running shoes have a raised heel, so the whole musculoskeletal system has to make unnatural compensatory movements which can lead to painful dysfunctions.

Women's running shoes for Natural Running and Fitness
Functional footwear in its purest form: »nimbleToes«
Ideal proprioception, maximum toefreedom® and minimum weight: our »nimbleToes« are perfect for natural running. You will hardly notice you’re wearing these breathable, ultra-light women’s running shoes, allowing you to focus all your attention on running.
The athletes love our comfortable shoes for running. We are delighted to welcome Katharina Blank (Ninja Warrior Germany) and Hannes Wolpert (triathlete) as new brand ambassadors. The comfortable, effective barefoot feeling also provides reliable support for workouts, parkour, yoga and martial arts.
Tips for natural running novices:
Did you know that about 95% of runners are heel strikers? Because of this, you may be used to heavy cushioning in the heels of your shoes. Sound familiar?
»nimbleToes« is a non-cushioned women’s running shoe which is designed specifically for professionals and advanced natural runners who have already perfected the forefoot running technique.
If you are new to natural running, start your training slowly with expert support to make sure no errors creep in when you are working on your running style. Natural running is only healthy is your feet function naturally, you use the correct technique and you wear women’s running shoes with toefreedom®.
Women's trail running shoes
Stay safe and nimble off the beaten track:
Do you enjoy the challenge of cross-country running? If so, try our »nimbleToes Trail« in black-orange. These trendy women’s running shoes have a 6 mm terrain sole to help you take any challenge in your stride. Choose a Flexitec® footbed to maximise your performance even more.
Comfortable running shoes for women are important on trails to enable you to react agilely to uneven ground and compensate safely. Fine sand, wet leaves, sharp stones and loose scree make great demands of you, both physically and mentally, because millions of nerve cells in the soles of your feet permanently send information about the terrain to your brain (proprioception). Our intelligent lacing system provides a secure, pain-free fit without pressure points.
With its casual, sporty design featuring contrasting colours – yellow and black or orange and black – »nimbleToes Trail« is a trendy choice for running and an eye-catching highlight for everyday wear.
Finding comfortable running shoes in the right size:
Most conventional running shoes for women narrow at the front and restrict your feet. As soon as you slip into our women’s running shoes, you will feel the toefreedom® and zero drop. Just take a moment to measure your feet to find the right shoe size for our functional footwear. We also offer comfortable running shoes for women in half-sizes for maximum comfort.
Comfortable running shoes for women by Sebastian Bär and Lee Saxby
Sebastian Bär: CEO of Joe Nimble® and inventor of functional footwear
My family has been making shoes with toefreedom® since 1982. My experience of helping people all around the world to improve their foot function with the advantages of toefreedom® and my passion for running helped me to develop the design concept for functional footwear.
When crewing at the world’s toughest ultra-marathon, the Badwater Ultramarathon, a few years ago, I noticed that a lot of the elite athletes cut open the toe box of their running shoes to stop their feet from being severely restricted and reduce the risk of injury. My extensive experience of making casual shoes with toefreedom® inspired me to apply this design philosophy to comfortable running shoes for women.
Lee Saxby: international running coach and creator of the Functional Foot Map
Lee is one of the best-known coaches for running technique on an international level. This expertise and his knowledge of biomechanics and foot function have helped injured runners – both recreational and elite – around the globe. His experiences also led him to develop the Functional Foot Map assessment system. With Lee’s skills, we are taking our comfortable running shoes to a whole new level. We hope you enjoy yourself and achieve your goals!
