Besides walking everyday, jogging or running is the next step towards a more advanced workout and a healthier lifestyle. However, taking the best out of your running workouts has to do with more than just going faster. Posture, technique and equipment are a vital part of any workout, including long distance running, intervals or sprints. When it comes to equipment, a proper pair of running shoes may be the difference between finishing the 5k or abandoning mid-run due to ankle pain.

Here are 3 running shoes that are specifically designed for running and also provide some of the best performance out there.

1. New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v2


New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v2

With its perfect balance between responsiveness and cushioning, New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v2 comes with better cushioning that the first version and also allows for a better fit. It’s a lightweight running shoe with an extended midfoot saddle. While it looks and feel light, it is able to provide a strong grip and increased stiffness when worn. Available online for about $100.

2. Salomon Snowcross CS


For snow and mud, regular running shoes just won’t cut it. Coming with mud and snow Contagrip and a ClimaShield waterproof membrane, Salomon Snowcross CS shoes are one of the best choices when trailing in cold conditions. One downside is the fact that, in order to provide a sturdy construction, the weight of the shoe had to be increased, compared to similar products. You can get them now for about $140, online.

3. Saucony Cohesion

Saucony Cohesion Running Shoe

Available in more than 8 versions, Saucony Cohesion is one of the most used running shoes around the world. The fabric featured on the upper is breathable and lightweight, reducing the overall mass of the shoe, and the combination with the outsole results in a durable output. The Heel Grid System offers efficient cushioning and stability. Priced at $60, it’s also the cheapest on the list.
