Support research for women's running shoe performance at SFA

Stephen F. Austin State University’s Department of Kinesiology and Health Science is paving the way with new research into women’s exercise science. Recent advancements in running shoe technology have led to significant performance improvements by enhancing running economy, as shown in laboratory-based testing. However, much of this research has been limited to data on male runners and faster running speeds. This initiative will raise funds to purchase running shoes in women’s sizes as well as help close gender and data gaps in running shoe performance research.

Following the project, and when the shoes can no longer be used for research purposes, they will be donated to local high school girls cross country and track programs.

Learn more about the proposed research project.
