IF YOU ARE IN THE MARKET FOR NEW RUNNING SHOES, this is the time of year when the FALL shoe reviews are published. Below are 3 guide/reviews for you to help you in this task.
The Active.com 2016 Fall Running Shoe GUIDE says it’s “gathered and tested some of the best and newest and road and trail running shoes” to help you find the perfect pair for the upcoming season”. There are 14 shoes on the slideshow.
Runner’s World Shoe Lab reviews 21 NEW shoes. Their testers wear and the lab analyses data from the shoes. The magazine issues awards in several categories: BEST debut, BEST update, and BEST buy. There is an “Editor’s Choice” award. A shoe finder function includes other shoes previously reviewed. I prefer the paper magazine article over the online feature for my first look at the new shoes. There are brand videos and ads embedded, but this slows down viewing and I think it’s harder to compare models online.
RunRepeat.com's guide, “638 Best Running Shoes in 2016 (August): 103886 runners reviewed these shoes with an average score of 78/100” is like the title implies, a ranking by viewer reviews. You can see the entire list or search by category or brand. Additional shoe and review information is available on each ranked model.The #1 shoe overall is Asics Gel DS Trainer 21. I had this shoe several years ago and loved it’s lightness, so I posted a picture taken the summer of 2015 above. Apparently the 2016 model has undergone some improvements.
Good luck with your search; shopping is part of the fun!
