I am currently looking for a new pair of running shoes as it has come to my attention that all my running shoes have paid their dues and need to be retired. I always hate shopping for new shoes, there is so much to keep in mind, for example, what time of the day is best for shoe shopping (afternoon), low mileage shoe vs high mileage shoe, size of the shoe as different brands fit differently, also because your feet swell the longer you run, you must get a size bigger.
If you are in the same boat as me, recently Runner’s World named the best shoes that stood out from the rest, so maybe this can assist you in your “find the right shoe” quest. The editors from all 20 editions of Runner’s World around the globe meet every year to review the latest offerings in running shoes. These five shoes stood out:
Editors Choice awarded to Saucony Triumph ISO
Best Debut awarded to New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo
Best Update awarded to Adidas Adizero Adios 3
Best Buy awarded to Brooks Ghost 9
Best Trail Shoe awarded to Brooks Cascadia 11
