Running is considered to be the best exercise form as it helps in maintaining a healthy body weight. Running got popular in the late 1960s in North America and hit in Europe in the 1980s. In the recent years, the growing number of running events such as marathons in emerging economies has influenced the demand for running apparel and footwear.
Major vendors are coming up with customized footwear to cater to customer requirements. Recently, the focus has shifted to the designing of lighter shoes that prove improved posture and extra support. Among its vast portfolio of athletic products, Under Armour, began to offer apparels with compression technology that helps in the regulation of body temperature, enabling the runners to be in a state of comfort during exercise. Nike is offering value-added fabrics that dry quickly and keeps the wearer warm and comfortable.
