The 26 That Rose To The Top

Whether you want to run further and faster, or just want to cover your kays with fewer aches and pains, this season’s shoes boast the latest innovations in cushioning and comfort to help you keep running strong. We tested 78 pairs of shoes in our lab and on the feet of more than 300 wear-testers, who each logged more than 80km in their test pairs. To identify our top 26, we looked at how the shoes performed regarding key metrics such as comfort, stability, and overall ride. We grouped them into four categories –road shoes that are fast, soft, or stable, and trail shoes –to help you find the pair that best meets your needs. It’s time to make room in your cupboard.

They’re calling for my race, the 800-meter, to collect by the start line.
