NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Every year we find ourselves making vows to work harder in the coming months…work harder to eat right, work harder to stay fit, work harder to find more time in the day…Footwear experts at Lady Foot Locker know that working hard can take its toll on the body. This year, they suggest an easy way to keep fit is to keep it light.

Just think about the word "light" and how it makes you feel. Lighten your burden, light-hearted, light on your feet…

Now think "Lightweight running." These are running shoes that weigh less than most technical sneakers on the market and still maintain quality and support while looking fresh throughout the New Year.

The Nike Free incorporates a technology that makes you feel like you are walking/running barefoot. This shoe features an innovative upper that blends breathable mesh with engineered overlays and stitchless construction for a unique balance of comfort, fit and support. The Lunar Glide, also by Nike, utilizes the brand's patented Flywire technology to provide lightweight support and a comfortable fit. These shoes also employ gender specific flex grooves to promote a naturally efficient stride.

A bright color can also lighten your mood, and in the case of tech running, the Asics 2160 with bright purple accents also serves to provide maximum comfort for a much more enjoyable running experience. According to Asics, "millions of runners have enjoyed the consistent fit, stability and comfort of this economically-priced, high-end performance shoe."

Another way to keep it light in 2011 is to lighten your workout. Toning footwear, like the Reebok EasyTone, takes some of the "work" out of your daily routine, while boosting calories burned and muscles used. Built in EasyTone™ technology creates a slight instability, much like walking on sand, which encourages increased muscled activation in three key areas of the leg: the glutes, the hamstrings, and the calves.

If you resolve to keep it light, come January 1st, you will have 364 more days to enjoy a more carefree, brighter, virtually "weightless" lifestyle. It's the New Year. It's time for a newer lighter you.
