Whatever your reason for running, be it for fun, exercise, stress relief, socialise, achieve a goal or just because you can, having an amazing running shoe makes it more pleasurable and reduces the risk of injuries. Here we have put together a top 10 list of awesome running shoes for men.
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32
This shoe can be described as a speed shoe for those interested in increasing their speed. Being light, soft and compliant, it immediately attracts the fast pace runner due to its responsive, high tempo while also appealing to cruise-minded runners with its soft suds and moderate midsole. Its selling point is the customizable upper mesh.
New Balance Vazee Pace
This shoes can be described as lightweight and incredibly fit, a tester believed the shoe to be absolutely amazing. The Vazee is an exciting new entry that provides an exceptionally responsive outing that feels stable and supports long runs. The foam might feel a bit light for heavy foots and slow runners but just enough to reduce road sting
Mizuno Wave Enigma 5
This shoe is a workhorse; it is a durable, long-haul comfortable footwear with a good make-up and a lenient feel. A plastic plate runs its full length giving it a narrow fitting feeling and is significantly more responsive that its foamy Enigma cousin. While it is not slow, you might need a faster shoe.
Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost 8
The shoe is a mass appeal that has what largely sprinters need in a shoe, firm upper, sufficient padding around the tip and heels and enough room for the toe. Few plastics pieces around the middle and heel adds stability. The footwear is slightly weighty but is good for long runs.
5. The North Face Ultra MT
This footwear has grit; it is built for grip on loose turfs, with a sticky outsole and is remarkably securely fit. The shoe has a firm heel and its thickness is enough to ease the pain of hard landing and long outing while the front is thin, swift and reactive on various terrains. It’s not a good fit for wide feet.
6. Vasque Pendulum II
The pendulum is at the halfway point between the modest and maximalist runners. It is a roomy shoe and good for wide or flat footed runners. Its grip is moderate with a protecting rock plate, firm midsole. It is secured and sticks to your feet with no taut points or sloshing.
The speedgoat is made up of foam from the heel to the forefoot and with each step taken you feel a lot of mush. It was designed as a running shoe for less than usual routes. While its mushy feel drains forward energy, it is very helpful during marathon and torturous downhill runs.
Altra Lone Peak Neoshell
The Neoshell has new cool feature, a waterproof barrier that stops the melting snow from drenching the body of the shoe and adding extra weight. It’s a soft, slipper feel shoe for the minimalists and its design feels a bit undercooked.
Merrell All Out Terra Ice Waterproof
From its name, you can tell it has a waterproof feature but asides that, it spikes are carbide-tipped making running over ice less more fun for the runner with its confident grip. It forefront is nicely padded and the midsole will well padded.
Brooks Adrenaline ASR 12 GTX
It is a shoe meant for the heavy runners and runners who want stability, comfort and long haul support without having so much weight on their foot. The midsole is slightly slow while it is thick and responsive.
