The fitness bug has finally bitten India. Just take a walk through your local park and you will find people of all ages there. There will be children and teens, of course, playing football, badminton, or cricket. Uncles and aunties will be taking their doctor-prescribed walks. Then there will be 20-, 30-, and 40-year-olds out for a jog with their earphones and iTunes in place.

Fitness is in and how! But before you start your journey to good health, you need to ensure you have the right fitness gear. And the one item that tops that list is sports shoes.

Sure, you have the pick of the best international sports shoe brands in India. But these brands do not come cheap. No problem! You can now buy men’s and women’s branded sports shoes with no-cost EMI. It is a convenient way of financing your fitness shopping spree.

If you like keeping things simple, Nike has all-black football shoes that you will love. Or do you want something funky? Check out the Nike Hypervenom Phantom series. The price may be upwards of Rs 5,000 for the latter. But do not let price be a deterrent when you can buy Nike sports shoes on EMI.

Running shoes: Running shoes are not just fancy sneakers. You absolutely need to wear the correct pair. Otherwise, you could injure yourself.
