The most important part of any shoe is your experience over the hundreds of miles you’ll take them on. Doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner who is looking to get into the game or an experienced runner who already has a lot of miles on him. There are a variety of features to look out for while purchasing a running shoe: lightweight, cushioning, support and a comfortable fit.
Here are the 5 of the best running shoes that we feel you should buy for your needs:
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35
The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 is the perfect choice for everyone, be it a beginner or a professional runner. For decades, the Pegasus has been a do-it-all model that can handle high mileage as well as it can upticks in speed. Nike has given it the lightweight foam, which is exceptionally springy. The Pegasus 35 is available for a reasonable price, too, giving you a great value for the cost. The fact that you can wear this shoe for so many different types of training, and as a runner of any level, also makes it a great buy. The shoe also looks stunning during casual use.
Saucony Freedom ISO 2
With a mix of both comfort and stability, the Freedom is a great shoe for distance runners. It is an upgraded version of the revolutionary Freedom ISO. A few small changes were made to the original version, resulting in a more comfortable and natural feeling ride. The added comfort makes this shoe even more ideal for every day runs than its predecessor. The faster you run, the zippier it will feel, so it’s a perfect pick for speedsters who like to tear up the road and track.
New Balance 890 V6
This shoe strikes the right balance between just enough cushioning while still feeling light [9.2 oz (M), 7.6 oz (W)] and energizing. The 890 V6 is easily the type of shoe you could walk around all day in, but it really shines on long runs and recovery runs. This shoe is perfect for running at a good speed. So the faster you run, the zippier it will feel. This shoe also features an internal sleeve that wraps the foot in a snug cocoon, so it can give you great comfort even under harsh conditions.
Hoka One One Bondi 5
The Hoka One One Bondi 5 is not only a great running shoe, but a great update on the Bondi 4. While it may look like the ugly duckling of the bunch at first, this shoe delivers when it comes to comfort. The Bondi 5 also has more room for your toes compared to the Bondi 4, so you can expect better comfort with these. Your foot sits down in the cushioning quite a bit, and much of it wraps up and around giving these shoes a pillow-like feel. So you don’t have to worry about feeling uncomfortable after using this for a short or a long period of time.
Adidas Terrex TrailMaker
The TrailMaker is a solid choice for runners who want to take on a variety of terrain without losing confidence in their traction. The versatility of the Terrex TrailMakerwill deliver, whether you have an adventurous spirit that loves mountain races and ultra-running, or you’re simply looking for a way to lose the suit and tie and unwind with a run on the trails. The roomy fit and new engineered mesh are ideal for long training runs, when feet swell. There’s also an added layer of film over key areas of the foot for extra support and a lace pocket on the tongue.
