The streets seem to have almost been taken over by joggers lately which is great to see.
But with so many of us plowing through extra miles, we’ll be burning through more and more rubber.
So if you’re looking for a new pair of shoes for your easy runs in 2020, here’s Build for Athletes’ guide to seven of the best pairs available.
Brooks Ghost 12 (£120.00)
Brooks’ Ghost range has built a reputation as one of the best shoes for cushioning, and they haven’t disappointed here.
Users report the 12th edition of the shoe feels comfortable from the first mile, needing almost no wearing in. They also come in wide and extra-wide sizes.
New Balance 1080v10 (£135.00)
New Balance have clearly worked hard on the aesthetics of their latest 1080 model and it’s made for a great looking shoe that stands out amongst the crowd.
Sure, things like comfort and durability are the priorities with everyday running shoes, but feeling stylish will help you enjoy your run too.
And that’s not to say this isn’t a great shoe to support your run as well, as many reviewers claim it offers a soft feel while remaining responsive enough for speed work.
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 (£104.95)
The Pegasus is an affordable option, coming slightly cheaper than some of it’s competitors, and still acts as a great all-rounder for neutral runners.
It’s good to look at and comes in a wide range of colours which allows for a touch of personalisation too.
Hoka One One Speedgoat 4 (£125.00)
A fairly unique company, Hoka is known as the standout brand for trail runners so their Speedgoat 4 is one to consider if you do a lot of your miles off-road
Coming with just a 4mm heel-to-toe drop to encourage fore-foot landing and a thick sole unit of cushion, this is a great shoe for racking up big mileage in.
Hoka Clifton 6 (£120.00)
The Clifton 6 is Hoka’s model for the road. It maintains the Hoka trademark of thick cushioning combined with a shallow heel-to-toe drop.
It also comes in a wide-fit.
ON Cloudwift (£135.00)
Swiss company ON is becoming more and more popular for its shoes that have a unique-looking sole-unit.
The Cloudswift is their offering for everyday road running and is well worth checking out.
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20 (£120.00)
If you’re looking for a shoe with cushion and know that you’re prone to having unsteady ankles, the Brooks Adrenaline is probably the place to start.
The stability shoe comes with guide rails that aim to keep your stride on track if you land awkwardly.
