Stay neutral
EVOLVING every year, if not month, neutral cushioned shoes are seeing developments in cushioning materials and dynamics at a pace which is nothing short of astonishing. The latest models feature new polymers in the midsoles to give them a cushioned feel while at the same time keeping their weight to a minimum. Give them a spin and choose the most comfortable for mile after mile of shock absorbing running.

ASICS – Evoride

The latest addition to what is becoming a growing line of products in ASICS’ ‘RIDE’ category, this shoe takes the learnings of the METARIDE and GLIDERIDE into an everyday, affordable shoe for the masses.

It feels light and provides an incredibly smooth ride – it really does feel likes its rolling you down the road. This is a slightly lower profile shoe (with a 22mm stack height and 5mm heel drop) but it is aimed at more up-tempo kind of training and is very efficient.

The FLYTEFOAM Propel midsole gives a nice combination of shock absorption and, thanks to the defined rocker, a great toe-off to create a shoe that puts a smile on your face.

As you would expect from ASICS, the upper is of the highest quality and the Jacquard mesh construction feels soft and plush while providing a close and secure fit.

BROOKS – Ghost 12

A look at the best neutral shoes around wouldn’t be complete without considering one of the best around.

The Ghost is a firm favourite with many runners – it’s the combination of lightweight, plush cushioning and a great fit that give it such a broad appeal.

The cushioning comes from the brand’s DNA LOFT and BioMoGo DNA materials, providing a well-rounded mix that simply soaks up impact without you even noticing.

Brooks Women's Ghost 12 Runners everywhere can't get enough of the Ghost. The latest version strikes a just-right balance of DNA LOFT softness and BioMoGo DNA responsiveness. Shop Now

ASICS – Gel Nimbus 22.

In a world of ever evolving shoes, the Nimbus remains, albeit reimagined with the latest technologies. This is still the same stable, neutral high mileage model it always has been, but is now the culmination of over 20 years of development.

Increased GEL in the rearfoot combines with FLYTEFOAM midsole cushioning to provide a lighter and yet more durable ride. The GEL is now a lower density to give a softer feel and, with Propel cushioning, there’s a more responsive toe-off.
