Road: Best Running Shoes for the road in 2017
Saucony Ride 10 – This latest update from Saucony shows plenty of improvements. In particular the underfoot experience is much better and the upper has been modified to be much more comfortable. There is just enough room to accommodate foot swelling that can be part and parcel of a long run on road surfaces.
Reebok OSR Harmony Road – A great daily trainer, the Harmony Road will see you through your workouts. Look under the heel for the secret ingredient – bright hello micro tubes help provide great cushioning with increased rebound. Enjoy the smooth transition from heel to toe.
Adidas Supernova – Adidas took a hatchet to the Supernova and gave it a complete overhaul. It’s now more appealing than ever to a more diverse field of runners. It’s softer than its predecessors with even more bounce in the heel. Help avoid pronation with a firm rail designed to keep footfall over the midsole.
New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v3 – A great shoe for almost any road conditions. It’s light and flexible enough to provide for support for speed work through to distance races. The sole has been adapted to have smaller treads and slits on the sides to allow for increased flexibility.
Reebok FloatRide Run – Reebok’s innovative new return material is called Float Foam and with good reason. It’s been deployed well here to create a very responsive shoe that has an exceptionally bouncy midsole. A joy to run in.
Trail: Best Running Shoes for the trail in 2017
Vasque Constant Velocity – We love the engineering on the Velocity. Find extra protection from rocks and debris with a strong forefoot rock plate. The heel has been designed to absorb shocks on the tougher downhill sections, and the lugs provide excellent grip no matter the surface.
Hoka One One Challenger ATR 3 – The newest Challengers don’t have any major redesigns, but a few helpful tweaks have seen even greater performance and comfort. Keep an eye out for the roomier toebox and realigned lugs on the forefoot. They’re better placed to shed mud to keep you moving clean.
