Unlike decathlon's running shoes which offer outstanding mileage for their price point, these trainers are average and costly in comparison.

Hi MiMi, 

Thank you for your review on our 500 women's fitness cardio training shoe. 
The cardio training shoe is specifically made for indoor cardio training like HIIT, Zumba, cardio boxing, skipping. 
They have adjustable strap for a snug forefoot fit, Hexagonal design for multidirectional flexibility and cushioning specifically at the sides and forefoot area. 
A running shoe will have more cushioning at the heel area as most impact are at the heel while running and for cardio, it is at the forefoot area. A fitness shoe will not be as comfortable if you are to use it for daily walking/running usage. 
Hope this clarifies the difference between a cardio vs running shoe.
Our products in decathlon are specific to their sports and are made to be used while doing that sport so sometimes it would get a little confusing such as this shoe for example. 
Thank you once again for your review and do not hesitate to contact me for any clarifications :)
Have a great day!

Why wear fitness shoes?

Studies carried out at our Sportslab have shown that fitness and other sports involve a whole host of different movements. Movements such as twists, skaters, tuck jumps, squats and lunges all come into play. Unlike running, which uses mainly linear movements, fitness activities involve hardly any linear movements. Our shoes are all designed to help you perform these movements without the risk of getting injured.

Doing fitness in running shoes (or vice versa) isn't a good idea

Wearing suitable shoes for fitness reduces the risk of injury by 20% compared with people who wear running shoes. But why? Our research and development lab has demonstrated specific ways that the foot moves in different sports: a straight stride when running, versus rotations during fitness activities. Wearing the right kind of shoes for your sports activity protects your feet and boosts your performance!

Drop: height difference between the front and back of your foot

All of our fitness shoes have a 4 mm drop. The feeling you get with this 4 mm drop is closer to that of your natural foot position (barefoot = no drop). It's important to bear in mind that, if you're used to wearing shoes with too much drop, such as high heels, it will take some time to get used to your new shoes..

Multidirectional flexibility

The multidirectional flexibility refers to how well a shoe flexes and twists to support direction changes. Studies have shown that we need 1.7 times more flex and extension during fitness activities than during running. The ankle's movement also varies depending on the kind of fitness or running you do. That's why we've created multidirectional shoes specifically for fitness.

Forefoot support

Why is it important? Good forefoot support – a must for fitness – helps you stay balanced when you change direction.

Forefoot cushioning

The cushioning is the ability of the shoe to cushion impacts and dampen vibrations. The main point of impact between the foot and the floor during fitness activities is at the forefoot, whereas for running the impact is at the heel. We design our shoes with excellent cushioning at the forefoot to protect your body from repeated impacts while also stabilizing your supporting leg to help you string movements together more smoothly.

Grip and rotation

This model's grip lets you change direction quickly and easily, while the pivot zone has less grip so you can turn and spin easily without putting pressure on your joints. Striking the right balance of grip is essential. A combination of sensory, mechanical and biomechanical tests has allowed us to determine the right level of grip and the part of your foot that is in contact with the floor as you pivot.

How do we prove it? product tests

In our labs, our researchers analyze movements using sensors that precisely measure the human body's reactions. But because nothing is as good as tried and tested experience, we've also tested our products in gyms where they'll actually be used. We use these tests to create technical and affordable products to keep you doing sport safely and comfortably.

The bonus is no marks on the floor.

Our sole has been designed to leave no marks on the floor.

Can you run on a treadmill wearing fitness shoes?

Our fitness shoes have been specially designed for cardio fitness. They are also suitable for limited running on a treadmill. You can wear them for a quick warm-up/cool-down on the treadmill before or after a class. However, if you plan to only run, whether on a treadmill or outdoors, you should choose a running shoe for safety reasons.

Are fitness shoes for indoor use only?

Cardio fitness is mainly done in gyms and/or at home. Our shoes have been designed for indoor use. The rubber is specially suited for indoor use as it is softer. Wearing these shoes outdoors on tarmac will cause premature wear to the rubber. The grip of our soles is tested based on the floors used in gyms or in your home, and rubber is designed to be more grippy when used in these places.
