Best extremely durable shoes for Women who land on their forefoot

There is nothing worse than having a shoe that falls apart after a single wear. Finding a top, durable shoe can mean the difference between getting 50 miles out of a pair... or 500. And that extra durability can save you serious money. But having a durable shoe not only means saving money: it means less injuries, a better run, and a healthier life.

A runner's foot can land on the ground in a myriad of ways. The rarest is on the forefoot, the front of the foot near the toes. There's nothing inherently wrong with this landing pattern: some advocates recommend non-forefoot runners adopt forefoot running to reduce running's shock to the body. However, because it is rare, many shoes aren't designed for runners who land on their forefoot: as a result, the wrong shoe can wear quickly on the front, which can often lead to injury. That's why it's important for forefoot runners to find the right shoe.
