Deciding what the best pair of running shoes is for one’s needs is a personal choice. To create this top five of best running shoes, we gathered some of the best running footwear on the market and subjected them to a through evaluation, taking into account both the technical specifications and the reviews of multiple consumers who actually tested them. For each pair, we analyzed important factors such as durability, fit, design, cushioning, level of comfort and more.

The ideal road shoe comes in lots of different forms, but we think the Brooks Ghost 8 are simply some of the best running shoes you can buy. Light and comfortable, these shoes also offer incredible traction and cushioning so the feet remain comfortable even during a very long run. For a truly fashionable pair of running shoes, we consider the Mizuno Wave Hitogami 2 and the Under Armour Men’s Speedform Gemini the best choices out there, even though they may lack in the cushioning and flexibility department.

If you prefer a very secure fit that also provides quality cushioning, the Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 is the pair of running shoes for you. Finally, if breathability is what you’re after, the Asics Gel Nimbus 17 have the best mesh upper we tested, so it can regulate the temperature and provide your feet with all the comfort they need for a great run.
