Our Top 5 Road Running Shoes for 2021
With gyms currently shut for the foreseeable and the icy cold weather outside, running is likely to become all the rage again, just like it did during the first lockdown! If you are choosing to run outside, you want to make sure you are well-equipped for your workout and avoid any potential injury – this means wearing the best footwear possible.
Road running requires different grip and tread than treadmill running, so here are our pick of the best 5 road running trainers out there to help you elevate your outdoor runs in 2021.
1. Brooks Ravenna 11
This shoe is designed for ultimate stability and for all distances. It is great if you are an overpronated runner and is super comfortable.
2. Asics Gel Nimbus 22
This is a fantastic all-rounder running shoe which is designed with bouncy foam to make the hard pavements feel much more comfortable on your feet. This means it is perfect for those long park runs as the terrain can get a little uncomfy!
3. New Balance 860 V10
Another great shoe for overpronated runners, this trainer is all about stability, keeping you on track as you pound the pavements.
4. Asics Gel Kayano 26
Another Asics shoe, but for good reason. The Gel Kayano is a really durable shoe, hence the slightly higher price tag. This also means you can wear it on any run, whatever the weather (which can be super unpredictable in the UK!) or distance. Its in-built shock absorption is great for running on harder surfaces too.
Adidas Solar Glide ST 19
Last but by no means least, the Adidas Solar Glide is your more affordable running shoe that is still brilliant. It balances stability, comfort and durability to keep you on track for the entirety of your run.
