What is the best running shoe?
It's one of the simplest questions to ask, yet so hard to answer. There are many factors that go into what makes a shoe work for you. Your gait, pace, surface, and type of run can all affect how your shoes perform. It's about finding the right pair that matches your activity. For example, you wouldn't play soccer in hiking boots, just like you wouldn't go to the school dance wearing cleats. Context is key.
Using our customer feedback, industry knowledge and product reviews, we've come up with the top shoes in the first part of 2020. Keep in mind that no two feet are the same, so what works for one person won't always fit another. But in general, these are the best models we've seen this year. We've broken down our top shoes into different categories to answer this question the best way possible.
