Increased interest in athletic sports, surging demand for innovative footwear, increased awareness of healthy lifestyles, and increase in seasonal sales with sports events are the factors contributing to the growth of the Athletic Footwear market in the US.

Growing demand for innovative footwear is one of the key trends emerging in the market. Major vendors are launching innovative and customized footwear. For instance, Adidas launched its Energy Boost shoes in 2013, which carry a tiny melted energy capsule in their midsole. These shoes help athletes run for longer with less effort and without expending much energy.

According to the report, increased demand for comfortable footwear as a result of changes in lifestyle and consumer preference for comfort over price is propelling market growth. Hectic work schedules and the growing number of health-related issues are encouraging people to adopt daily exercise routines.
