Product Description

Get maximum support, stability, and versatility while performing workout in the Spira Stinger 3 Women. This women's athletic shoe is manufactured with two lightweight, steel springs in the forefoot and one in the heel for optimum energy efficiency. With an open air mesh upper, it offers maximum breathability. It has a detachable, compression-molded EVA insole and nylon shank for support and stability. The midsole features WaveSpring® technology to provide optimal cushioning support. To top it all, the shoe is finished with a high-abrasion, two-piece rubber outsole that has forefoot flex grooves for good grip and flexibility.The Spira Stinger 3 Women is sure to lend you unbeatable performance and comfort.

For years, athletic and comfort shoe engineers have been trying to create a buffer between the foot and the ground. Spira engineers have developed a solution--an energy return system that actually recycles expended energy back to the wearer.  It's called WaveSpring technology and it's found inside every pair of Spira shoes. With every step, energy is stored and then dispersed back to the wearer while providing the ultimate in cushioning. Testing performed by an independent source reported that the WaveSpring has up to a 96% energy return. Running, walking and standing for long periods of time can take a toll on the body, legs and feet. Spira's patented WaveSpring technology helps by taking a great deal of the burden off of the joints. Compared to Spira, regular athletic shoes require the wearer to exert greater effort. Muscles work harder, causing fatigue and increasing the risk of injury. By absorbing a greater amount of the impact of each step, Spira shoes manage to greatly reduce this risk and increase the wearer's enjoyment for the duration of the activity. While most shoes rely on compressive foams, air or gel materials to cushion the feet, the WaveSpring is mechanical and therefore will not lose its extraordinary "new shoe" feel over time. There is no significant cushioning breakdown throughout the life of the shoe. Spira's WaveSpring technology intuitively reacts to the amount of energy and pressure a wearer exerts, and redistributes energy accordingly. Heel and forefoot spring configurations are engineered for specific activities. Experience the Spira difference and put a real spring in your step!

    Size: 9 B(M) USColor: Black/Blush
    I should say somewhat large BECAUSE i went with other reviews that said they run small, but if I had ordered my exact size of 81/2 instead of 9 they would have been perfect. BUT i decided to keep them because my toes are happy to be able to wiggle and stretch. The first time i slipped my foot into the shoe and tired it up I knew I would like this shoe. Went for a short walk and liked them even more. I had to tighten up the laces and they look a little scrunched but are comfy. I may order another pair in my size and give this pair to my daughter who is a size 9. I like the springs in the soles and the insole that comes out. That is great to let them dry out after a sweaty foot. Like the black and pink laces with white sole. The 4 star is my own fault not the shoe.

    Size: 12 B(M) USColor: Black/Blush Verified Purchase
    I normally love the Spira brand but these were so uncomfortable and the spring within them squeaked from the first time I wore them. It annoyed me and every person around me at the gym. Not only that but after a little over a month of the gym and the spring gave out on me. These shoes also made my feet go numb after a little while.

    Size: 12 B(M) USColor: Black/Blush Verified Purchase
    This shoe runs small. I wear a 12 and this seemed more like an 11. My toes totally butted against the end of the shoe. Too bad. I would have liked to have kept them. And since they don't make anything larger, I was not able to reorder. Spria, PLEASE get your sizing corrected.

    I wear a 7.5 in the Spira XLT, but after seeing the reviews on the Spira Stinger 3, I ordered a half size smaller in these, and got a 7, and they fit perfectly!

    Simply the best sneaker for those with bad knees. The springs really alleviate knee pain. Just wish they had more color choices

    The right shoe squeaks loudly and all remedies to correct it have been unsuccessful.
