10 sneakers that prove you can find the perfect fit online

the best sneakers of 2016
Having the right equipment can make or break you when you are trying to exercise more. If you are trying to keep your top from flying up while doing yoga, constantly adjusting your armband while running or fumbling with your headphones while on the elliptical, you know how distracting and frustrating having the wrong equipment can be.

But so often, we forget about one of the most important pieces of equipment: your athletic shoes. Whether you are walking, running, biking, hiking, cross training or lifting at the gym, having a great shoe can help you feel more powerful, in control and can help protect your body from injury. The American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine recommends replacing athletic shoes that are over a year old, regardless of how much they've been worn.

Ayne Furman explains on the organization's website: "Even without use shoes can 'wear out'. Depending upon the environment the shoes are kept in; the outsole, midsole and some of the upper materials can dry out and not function optimally."

So if your new year's resolution involves getting in better shape -- make sure you have a good, fresh pair of shoes. These 10 merge style and function -- and are all easy to buy (and return if needed!) via Amazon. Plus, right now, Prime members get 10% off tons of athletic shoes! Learn more here.
