Whether you're a casual runner or a seasoned veteran, the most important aspect to any race is undoubtedly what's on your feet. A run can seem a whole lot longer if you're wearing the wrong shoes, so we've compiled a list of the the top ten sneakers that will get you to the finish line.
Comfortable and cosy yet stylish and sophisticated, unlike conventional running shoes, these creps don't sacrifice aesthetic performance for athletic performance. Available in a vast array of different styles and colourways, there's literally something for everyone here!
To kick things off, we have the adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 'Triple Black'. Merging next-level performance with street-ready style, these stealthy sneakers are built with a breathable Primeknit upper, whilst a TPU midfoot cage brings a locked-down fit. Whether you're running the track or walking the autumn streets, these trainers are equipped with a Boost midsole, which keeps the ride energised and cushioned.
The Nike Air VaporMax CS 'White' is the pinnacle of Air. Featuring a full length Air unit that provides impact protection with every step, this fresh white shoe is crafted from a synthetic and mesh panelled upper for the ultimate breathing experience. The trainer is finished off with the iconic Nike Swoosh branding on both side walls.
With a sock-like fit and energised cushioning, the adidas Pure Boost 'Triple Black' is made for city running. Stealthy and understated, they have a light and airy knit upper for a natural feel against your foot. A responsive midsole and flexible outsole deliver a smooth ride, and a pod around the heel offers added support.
Unveiled earlier this summer, the Nike EXP-X14 'Wolf Grey' is the Swoosh's latest foray into the world of performance sneakers. Arriving in a blend white and grey, the kicks feature a translucent textile upper to give you a highly breathable wear and structure. Flywire cables exposed to the sidewalls give you a locked-in fit so your feet feel secure no matter how long the run.
Crafted from recycled plastic from shorelines, the adidas Ultra Boost 'Parley' is paving the way to the future of sneakers and footwear as a whole. Painted in 'Deep Ocean Blue', this sneaker sits atop a Boost midsole for additional comfort and a smoother stride. The heel cup shapes itself to your foot offering a natural fit, whilst the TPU midfoot cage provides the ultimate lock down.
For unparalled cushioning, check out the Nike Epic React Flyknit 'Triple White'. Built with a bootie-style, platinum Flyknit upper, the trainers mould to the contours of the foot, with a tongue that's seamlessly part of the upper to reduce pressure. They're sat on a React foam midsole which is 13% bouncier than Lunarlon, responding to impact by instantly snapping back.
Inspired by runners who cut off the cages of their shoes, the adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged 'Core Black' gives you a feeling of free and unrestricted movement. The Primeknit upper has internal reinforcement and hugs the foot for a sock-like fit, and the responsive Boost cushioning energises your stride.
Push yourself that extra mile and feel the burn in the Nike Zoom Fly SP 'Light Bone'. Built with a responsive construction that turns the pressure of each step into energy, these shoes are ideal for any tempo or long distance runner. Inspired by the historic Breaking2 attempt, the lightweight support system has been updated to ensure a drag free step while the full-length carbon infused nylon plate to the midsole propels you forward with every stride.
Up your running shoe game with the adidas Originals Swift Run 'Triple Black'. Repping old-school adidas running style, they're built with a stretchy, sock-like knit upper for a close fit, while the injection-moulded EVA midsole ensures lightweight cushioning every step of the way.
Representing the next gen of Air Max, the Nike Air Max 270 'Triple White' takes inspiration from the Air 180 and Air Max 93. Built with a bootie-style knit upper, the lightweight trainers come in a clean colourway, combining solid and mesh panelling for essential ventilation.
