2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Running Shoes

Reebok RealFlex Run Mesh $80

The “RealFlex” name sets expectations for a running experience that is all about unencumbered freedom of foot movement, and that’s precisely what the shoe delivers. With its narrow last, raised heel and sock-like mesh upper, the RealFlex is not the best choice for heavy pronators. But if your perfect shoe is a lightweight trainer with a lot of flex and ample cushioning, here it is. Reebok.com
