Athletic footwear also referred to as athletic shoes are a footwear type especially tailored for athletic events including sports and other outdoor physical activities. They are typically made up of three primary components, namely the upper section, the mid sole, and the outsole and are prepared from extremely high quality raw materials, such as leather, foam, plastic and advanced chemical additives.

Athletic footwear primarily aid in providing enhanced protection, fast movement control, mid-foot support, anti-friction properties, heel stabilization and cushioning and other long lasting benefits.
