Changes in your feet can make you more susceptible to ankle rolls and falls, says Louis Galli, D.P.M., a foot and ankle surgeon in New York City. These kicks have you covered.
Run or Zumba in Zoot Ultra Kane 3.0
This light sneaker fits your foot like a glove thanks to forefoot and heel cushioning. Its design focuses on stability and reinforcement, so your ankle stays supported. Plus, the stretchy compression material is forgiving and energizing to your swelling tootsies. ($140, zootsports.com)
Circuit Train in New Balance 711s
The perfect halfway point between overly cushioned kicks and overly minimalist "barefoot"-style shoes, the 711s feature a soft, flexible sole and a comfortable level of compression, which help your feet and ankles stay secure without making you feel too strapped in. ($80, newbalance.com)
Walk in Reebok Skyscape
Running errands is a pleasure in these non-frumpy sneakers. The foam sole is like a pillow for your feet, while the waffle-like bottom grips the ground to keep you from tripping. The contoured upper portion—inspired by molded bra cups—comfortably hugs your foot. ($65, reebok.com)
