Thierry Rabotin walking shoes for women are perfect to get your steps in throughout the week. The Lena 7502 refine a classic sneaker look in black leather.

Thierry Rabotin’s Tao 4108 women’s shoe is crafted from adaptable black textile featuring leather piping and an asymmetrical front. Its wedge heel and platform carry a shallow grid pattern. Wear your favorite walking shoe of the two with comfortable leggings and a wrap sweater for a cozy walk.

For dedicated runners, the Cloudventure from ON Running is engineered for advanced control and support on the trail. Available in black for both men and women, the sneaker is designed for neutral pronators and long distances. Its upper is composed of a two-layer mesh, which optimizes breathability. While the inner layer offers step-in comfort, the external layer handles ventilation thanks to a diverse stitch pattern. Sealed seams, a durable toe cap, and textured mudguard supply protection from the elements. The ghillie lacing system includes rubberized eyestays and metal logo eyelets at the top for reinforcement. Underfoot, Zero-Gravity midsole foam delivers lightweight cushioning and an updated Speedboard™ returns energy at every step. Its Missiongrip™ rubber outsole presents a mix of tread patterns for added stability. Zigzag channels combined with flat grooves help prevent slipping on smooth surfaces.

From the Hoka One One road collection, the Bondi 6 targets ventilation and maximal cushioning. Hanig’s Footwear offers it in classic black and a playful Indigo colorway exclusively for women. Its technical features include an open, engineered mesh upper with a Lycra heel frame and internal counter providing neutral stability. Synthetic stripes and bold logos on the lateral reinforce the construction. The Bondi 6 running shoe has a plush, compression-molded EVA midsole with a beveled heel for smooth transitions and durable rubber outsole.
