Looking at my worn out heels, I know it’s time when I need a new pair of running shoes. Most experts recommend replacing your running shoes every 300-400 miles. Which means if you are averaging 9-10 miles a week, you should be replacing your running shoes every 8-9 months. This number varies based on your weight and height, but it’s a good rule of thumb in general.
Below are Ashlee’s top picks for running shoes that are not only great for your feet, but also keep you running in style:
While The Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit Utility running shoe comes in seven different colors, all black is my preference. This shoe is designed to be easy to lace up, has added foot cushioning, light-weight, and has a higher ankle for added support.
The Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2 in this blush color is pretty cool. These are a peek into what I am eyeing for my next running shoe – I’m tempted to buy these. The Flyknit 2 offers more heel support which is great for those of you suffering with heel pain, especially the dreaded plantar fasciitis – dun, dun, dun…
The Gel-Kayano 25 running shoe in all black is what I end up with just about every time. Asics have returned to their original foot design which has made a lot of runners happy that their toes aren’t being squeezed. If you left Asics for a while, it might be time to come back and try out this new version.
The GEL-Quantum 180 3 is one I might try also. I am not a fan of white soles but this one is white then black again, so I’m warming up to it. This shoe runs a bit heavier compared to most light-weight shoes, but the added comfort and durability makes it worth it.
I am also a big fan of Brooks, all black again of course! This Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18 has great cushioning and arch support. It’s a great, everyday running shoe that is true to size.
This color in the same shoe is also in the running (get it ha ha). I like the fact that the sole is the same color as the shoe. Like I said white bottoms bug me personally. These could be pretty fun!
