Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 

 

A new update for Nike’s workhorse Pegasus model, these shoes are perfect all-rounders for the new year. You’ll find a very stable and supportive fit, and they’re just 285g each, making them a lighter option. The Nike Air Zoom technology will help carry you through the fatigue at the end of training runs. 

 

Asics Gel Kayano 24 

 

These are the perfect 2018 running shoes for over pronators and those looking for a very stable run. Memory foam helps keep the feet in the right place and accompanies the firmly structured upper panels. For long distance comfort the midsole has additional tech designed to keep your feet falling accurately.

If you’d like to experiment with trail running but prefer to spend most of your time on-road, this offering from INOV-8 may just do the trick. This 2018 running shoe has 4mm lugs, providing plenty of grip but no interference. You’ll find plenty of shock-absorption tech in the heel and midsole, too.
