Spring Awakening

Bringing back the sun with run shoes that go the distance.

Whether it’s tackling the neighborhood on foot or running sprints on the track, more and more consumers are lacing up for a run. Longtime runners or new recruits are sure to find what they’re looking for in spring ’21’s crop of shoes to watch.

The latest iteration of Saucony’s Guide franchise is its most responsive yet. The $130 Guide 14 uses the brand’s springier new PWRRUN foam, and the 3D engineered fascia supports on the upper and streamlined fit make for a smooth and effortless ride.

361’s newest neutral trainer marries a knit upper to a flexible construction that offers the brand’s proprietary fit. The $110 Fierce offers a soft ride with a wider base for stability and support.

The versatile Dynamic Pro sneaker from women’s brand Ryka does it all: Designed for cross-training, this cushioned $80 style can take the wearer through a full day of workouts and training runs and still have style to spare for around town wear.

Italian craftsmanship meets technical run know-how in the Diadora Mythos Blushield Volo. The $135 style has a 10mm drop and neutral construction for everyday running, but the old school chunky shoe styling seals the deal for everyday wear.


All-Rounders

Offering The Best Of All Worlds To Serious Runners.

Eye-catching colors, sleek uppers and versatile, performance-enhancing midsole technologies go hand in hand in fall’s selection of performance running styles. Lighter, brighter and more advanced than ever, these sneakers have staying power.

It’s all about ease in the New Balance Fresh Foam Beacon v3 ($120). The versatile style is designed to feel extra cushiony on foot, while rubber pods give the shoe durability on all terrains.

The Cloudflyer by Swiss brand On Running offers serious support, but the fully cushioned style has design smarts to spare. Engineered to work with any kind of runner, the $160 Cloudflyer complements each wearer’s individual gait.

Hoka One One’s $160 Stinson ATR 6 is designed for versatile comfort both on the road and off the grid. The lightweight, all-terrain shoe has the highest volume stack height in the Hoka lineup and utilizes recycled Unifi Repreve yarn in the upper.

Skechers brings Goodyear’s performance rubber to Edward Cheserek’s official training shoe, the $125 GORun Ride 8 Hyper. The brand’s lightweight Hyper Burst cushioning, a 6mm drop and a form-fitting stretch knit upper make this a go-to choice for fit and traction.

Reebok’s $100 Forever Floatride Energy 2.0 gets new colors this July, but it’s keeping the same ultra-supportive construction. P.S.: The spring ’21 version of the Floatride 3.0 will boast a new rocker midsole for an even smoother heel-to-toe experience on foot.
