Men's Running Shoes


Support is a spectrum that ranges from neutral shoes, which support the natural motion of the foot, to dedicated stability models, which feature motion-control technology that guides the wearer's stride. Stability shoes are often favored by overpronating runners. The material that absorbs the impact of the wearer's foot against the ground. Cushioning may vary in overall amount, density, and firmness. Generally, the more cushioning utilized, the "softer" a shoe will feel underfoot. A shoe's "drop" is the height difference from the heel of the shoe to the forefoot. Shoes with a higher drop tend to be favored by runners who land heel-first. Lower drops are often favored by forefoot or midfoot strikers.
Due to variances created during the development and manufacturing processes, all references to drop heights are approximate.

How Should Men’s Running Shoes Fit?

Men’s running shoes that fit well will be comfortable and snug without being too tight. Ideally, there should be about ½ to a full thumb width of space from the front of the shoe to your big toe, offering enough space to wiggle your toes freely without feeling too restricted or too loose. The right running shoe should feel like a natural extension of your body.

What is the Best Way to Wash Running Shoes?

For the best results and shoe longevity, try using warm water, dish soap, and a rag for spot cleaning—it’s best to avoid over soaking them in a washing machine. If you have stubborn stains or dirt, opt for an old toothbrush to scrub mud or debris away. To dry, stuff newspaper inside your running shoes and position them in front of a fan or allow them to air dry—it’s best to avoid putting your men’s running shoes in a dryer.

What Are the Best Running Shoes?

The best running shoe for you will depend on your needs, goals, and the type of support you’re looking for. Your ideal men’s running shoe will fit comfortably, address any instability issues you might have, and will have adequate cushioning that lasts. Typically, these factors will depend on the unique features of your feet, arches, and preferences.

How Do I Break-In my Running Shoes?

Even perfect-fit men’s running shoes might require a bit of a break-in period. Try wearing your running shoes throughout the day, for low-impact activities, and for shorter bursts of activity before you attempt long runs or races. Be sure to try a few shorter runs to ensure the shoes fit correctly after you’ve broken them in a bit.
