Best Nike shoes for Women with average builds

The Portland athletic giant got its start making running shoes. A waffle iron and billions of dollars later, Nike is the worldwide leader in making, marketing, and selling running shoes (among other athletic products). In fact, the current CEO of Nike got his start designing Nike's most popular running shoe: the Air Zoom Pegasus. Over the years, Nike has continued to perfect its popular running line, developing shoes for every stride, every budget, and every style.

Having an average build has its advantages: you can fit in most clothes, fly most airplanes, and ride most roller coasters. Running shoes are no different. Some shoes are meant for lighter runners; some for heavier runners. Average build runners can fit in the large bell shape curve in between. But just like it's important to understand your build, it's also important to understand what shoe you need. That's why the following sneakers are meant for runners who are neither heavy nor skinny.
