Top 10 Running Shoes 2013
Check out this list of the Top 10 Running Shoes 2013.
Brooks Men’s Ravenna 4review by Aka ($110) The Brooks Ravenna 4 is easily the best running shoe I’ve ever owned. I bought it based on the positive review from Runner’s World magazine. The heel is soft, which I need to avoid injuries while running 36 miles a week. The arch and stability are good enough that I don’t need to wear an insert to help with my flat feet. Excellent for 10-mile plus training runs. The shoe so light that I run more effortlessly with them. Recently wore them while averaging sub-8 per mile in a half marathon.
Adidas Mens Energy Boost Running Shoes review by Antonio ($150):
I’ve been running for more than 30 years with over 1 Million miles on my legs and since the first step I feel that this shoes are very confortable, and with the cushioning that I need for my next marathon.
I am very satisfied and I already ordered my second pair of Adidas Boost
Saucony Men’s Mirage 3 Running Shoe
review by Philip ($110): As soon as I took out the shoe from its box, I took it for a quick 10k run. It is a tad heavier than the Kinvara but offers a degree of support that is almost absent from the Kinvara. This trade off is just perfect for me since I find that I need some support at longer distances. The shoe fits very well and feels comfortably snug. Saucony definitely has a winner of a shoe in the Mirage 3!
Nike Flyknit Lunar1 review by Billy ($160): the Nike Flyknit running shoes are very soft and when walking, your heel slips a little bit. But while running these shoes are transformed! The cushioning is awesome, the shoe really supports your foot and holds it in place. A lot of support through the mid part of the shoe. I have a lott of knee, foot, and ankle problems and i have NO pain while running with these shoes. I am ready to order another pair.
ASICS Men’s GEL-Cumulus 15 Running Shoe review by Wide ($115): I just started running a couple of months ago and to begin with, I went to a big chain store and found a pair of “running” shoes that felt really good when I tried them on. After about 4 weeks, I started having a lot of knee pain after running. So I went to a running store and got an assessment and measurement done. (if you are just starting out, I would highly recommend you visit a running store and go through the assessment, they will save you a lot of pain and money in the long run) they recommended the Asics Gel Cumulus 15. So I bought them and the 2nd time out with these shoes I set a personnel best and felt absolutely great afterward. When I get done with my run, I have no pain and I actually feel like I could go out and run a second time. The cushioning and support of these shoes are phenomenal and they are fairly lightweight so they don’t weigh you down or feel really heavy during or after a run. All in all, this is probably the only shoe I will buy from now on for anything. Fantastic!
Saucony Men’s Kinvara 4 Running Shoe review by NB (60 to $100): road and mostly-groomed trail. Yellow should be easily seen by motorists. I have not tried other shoes like the Saucony Kinvara. Have to order online as stores do not carry my size.

Brooks Men’s PureConnect 2 Running Shoes review by SW ($49 to $90): In terms of fit, in both this and the previous edition I had to move up a half-size (from 8.5 to a 9). The new tongue/lace set-up on the 2 didn’t bother me too much. I may have felt like I wasn’t as secure in the shoe as the 1, but I never noticed any evidence of that being the case while running. I started trying to transform myself into a mid-sole lander for a couple months before purchasing the 1 to continue this transition, then eventually the 2 just a few weeks before a race. Certainly felt much better in the knees once I finally gave up 10 years of loyalty to Asics’ Cumulus. Yet given the chance to do it all over again, I’d do it the same way: START to change the form before I change the shoe.
Altra Men’s Torin 1.5 Running Shoe review by J.H.($115): I have spent many years looking for shoes that work with my feet. Right side a bit wider than left side. Both wider than “normal” (read available, in stock, at brick and mortar stores). Started by having to wear shoes that were far too long. These were still too narrow! Finally had a proper fitting done and found that 2E for the left and 2E-4E for the right is ideal. Too bad shoes are sold in pairs. Now that size has been nailed down, there are still issues with how standard running shoes taper at the toe. No foot is shaped like that! Found an ad for Altra shoes showing the more naturally shaped toe box. Tried on a “standard” 11.5 and immediately fell in love. Worked the transition from running on a wedge to running on a zero drop. Bought 3 pair of these! Never looking back.
New Balance Men’s M890v3 Running Shoe review by Joe ($110): Without a doubt the greatest, most durable, lightweight, comfortable running shoe I have ever laced up. As a Marine, I run A LOT, and these shoes are so awesome I have 3 pairs of the version 2 and now these to add to my collection. My only advice to anyone looking in to purchasing these (if you have a pair of Version 2) order a half size bigger. The toe box on the V3 is slightly more narrow so they fit a little tighter. Other than that- its like wrapping your feet in unicorns and rainbows and going for a run!!! 2 enthusiastic thumbs up!!
ASICS Men’s GEL-Kayano 19 Running Shoe review by MK ($150): I used to be an avid Gel-Kayano user, but for some reason I strayed from the path. For the past few years I have used other brand named running shoes. I needed a new pair of shoes and realized that I should get the latest pair of the Gel-Kayanos, the 19.
