Running Shoes

Adidas Supernova Glide 6 Boost
$130, Adidas.com
The draw: Peppy and comfortable

Cushioned trainers don’t have to feel flat and unresponsive—these shoes pop off the ground. Adidas’ own Boost material in the sole injects an explosive feel into these substantially absorbent shoes. Reviewers kept opting for this shoe during their most demanding runs of the testing process. A neutral runner looking for cushioning will be the best match for this shoe. The semi-slim, slipper-like upper is constructed from soft and breathable fabrics that stay comfortable well into a long run.
