5 Best Running Shoes

Whether you’re thinking of tackling a marathon or a quick morning jog, the first thing you have to do is find a decent pair of running shoes. Luckily, the new Fall season has brought with it some epic new shoe designs from some of the best sports brands. You have to try out these new sporting superstars.

1. Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 3


With improved traction perfect for Fall trail running, the Terra Kiger 3 has undergone strategic changes for the new season. Sleek and lightweight, it features a mesh upper for ventilation, a plush midsole and a rugged outsole for super responsive shock absorption. This shoe not only looks good, it will also please everyone from recreational runners to ultra-marathoners. Snappy off the ground, you can feel safe whether ploughing through mud or scaling hills. Conquer those Fall trails.

2. Saucony Kinvara 6 Runshield

There’s a reason so many dedicated runners have become die-hard fans of the Kinvara. Well known for impeccable balance between performance and comfort, this shoes leaves nothing out. The Kinvara 6 uses injection blown rubber in the sole which keeps the weight of the shoe down whilst also providing maximum durability and protection in the places that take the most ground contact. You’ll enjoy an impressively soft and comfortable ride for a lightweight shoe, and be happily surprised to find your feet will most likely stay dry in the rain. Use this as your daily go to for training, speed and longer runs over many surfaces.

3. Nike Free Flyknit 4.0

A hugely popular shoe (the biggest trend in British sport fashion right now), the Flyknit 4.0 is a real contender for the most comfortable running shoe out there. Ultimate synergy; the unique Flyknit upper is form-fitting, lightweight and is built to move as you move. No socks are needed as this upper is designed to be both your sock and shoe together. While they’re flexible and excellent for warm weather, they also come in some 18 different colours and because they’re so lightweight, you may be hard pushed not to reach the finish line first.

4. Asics GEL Quantum 360


This new addition to the Asics GEL family is the first ever to feature GEL cushioning in 360 degrees throughout the midsole. Every time your feet hit the ground, you won’t have to feel a harsh shock of impact on your heel thanks to this new design. Ultra-soft, but with no sacrifices when it comes to control, this shoes also features a snug, seamless upper, which hugs your foot, and like the Flyknit, is meant to be worn without socks. Avid runners definitely won’t have to worry about achey post-run legs after adopting this shoe.

5. Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost 8


If you’re used to running in the Flyknit, or something similar, then this might come as a shock to you: this update from Adidas packs an additional 3-5 ounces than most lightweight running shoes and you can feel it. But it’s not necessarily a bad thing. That little extra weight is a firm layer of protection between you and the ground, which is a relief when running on a hard concrete or asphalt road, as they are designed for. A brilliant shoe for stability, control and every day sports style.
