The best long-distance running shoes
If you’ve vowed to run more in 2015, a quality shoe is the first thing you’ll need
Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost
An outsole made from the same durable rubber as Continental tyres gives this shoe excellent grip, while its patented foam sole harnesses the energy you slam into the floor with each step to give you an extra spring.
Saucony Triumph ISO
No matter what part of your foot hits the ground first, this shoe’s curved sole encourages a fluid transition from strike to lift-off. Its loud colours will help drivers spot you a mile off, too.
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15
The adaptive cushioning of this shoe’s midsole responds to your running style, and the lack of seams on the upper reduces chafing so no blisters develop.
Asics Gel-Nimbus 16
Asics’s latest cushioning shoe uses a gel to dampen shock, while the sole’s grooves and overall shape encourages a tidy stride even when you start getting tired and sloppy.
New Balance Fresh Foam 980 V2
The Fresh Foam’s insole moulds to your foot like a memory foam mattress. It’s complemented by a sturdy rubber outsole that adds rigidity for a stable feel.
