Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio's team said: "The global sports footwear market is witnessing increasing demand for lightweight sports shoes. Lightweight sports shoes are ideal for running and walking as they are more flexible, soft, low to the ground, comfortable, and add speed in comparison to traditional sports footwear. The running and walking shoe segment is the major market segment; hence, the industry is focusing more on lightweight running shoes for men and women. For instance, Nike launched the Free Flyknit, which is light in weight and is meant for running/walking. Therefore, the growing demand for lightweight sports shoes is expected to exert a positive influence on the global sports footwear market in the forecast period."
