Best shoes for Women with heavier builds

Take no shame in being a Clydesdale--a runner who, like the horse, are bigger boned yet capable of amazing feats. Because runners come in all shapes and sizes, there are running shoes meant for all shapes and sizes. Clydesdales have to be careful how much shock is going is going to their joints, because the shock from running can apply a force of 1.5-3 times one's body weight in sensitive places like the knees. Luckily, there are shoes meant for bigger runners who need that shock absorption.
