Here goes… The Running Bear 2021 Shoe Awards, the most anticipated award ceremony of the year! Just for a bit of fun, we’ve shared our favourite shoes from the past year!
Brooks Ghost 14
This shoe is perfect for new runners and seasoned athletes; all runners love the Ghost! And that is why it is our top All-Around shoe for 2021. For Version 14, the DNA LOFT cushioning now extends throughout the midsole for an even smoother transition from heel to toe. We love this comfortable and reliable running shoe.
Best Trail Shoe:
Saucony Peregrine 11
We recommend this shoe for trail runners as a trusty, grippy and speedy companion. It has a protective upper and has everything you need to tackle the trail.
Best New Comer:
New Balance 1080v11
The 1080v11 is a versatile workhorse shoe that can handle most of an experienced runner’s training runs and is an excellent option for newer runners.
Best Shoe for Value:
Brooks Launch GTS
This shoe provides the perfect blend of speed and support. In addition, this shoe is lightweight and ready to go. Ideal for shorter, faster runs, and at a fantastic price, the Brooks Launch GTS had to be on our list of top running shoes.
Best for Racing:
New Balance RC Elite
We cannot say enough about this fantastic racing shoe. When you try on the RC Elite, you can feel the difference. This lightweight Men’s running shoe features the high-rebound FuelCell midsole compound paired with a full-length carbon fibre plate to help promote energy return and propulsion.
