Best Running Shoes of 2024

The changing of seasons is upon us, and with it comes a new opportunity for your next PR.

Rather than relying on your old and possibly worn-out running shoes, why not consider investing in a pair of 2024’s best running shoes?

The main criteria for running shoes are sufficient support, comfort, cushion, and weight. However, your decision may also be swayed by your running style (such as trail versus track, etc.), the shape of your foot, and various other factors.

Our team of runners and shoe experts at Marathon Sports researched and tested the best running shoes for 2024, so you don’t have to learn through trial and error. The following are our top 15 picks to make your decision easier, so you can hit the pavement or trails sooner.

What Makes a Great Running Shoe?

Numerous factors contribute to creating an excellent pair of running shoes. Our team dedicates itself to providing the best, non-biased reviews based on how the shoe performs and feels on trails, paved roads, tracks, rocky surfaces, and more.

We assess the shoe’s weight, flexibility, cushion, comfort, sole thickness, and durability to find those that stand apart. We aim to provide the most valuable, reliable reviews to help you make the most of every run.

Choosing Your Next Running Shoe

The perfect running shoe is different for every athlete. Some value a lightweight construction over extra cushioning and vice versa. Runners who have experienced knee injuries may prefer shoes with less “drop” or “offset” between the heel and toe to prevent further strain on the knee.

The choice also depends on the style of running you prefer. To stay comfortable, a long-distance runner will opt for more cushioning than a short-distance runner. Shoes made specifically for trail running provide more support and grip for uneven terrain.

We reviewed running shoes with various weights, offsets, cushioning, and styles to help you choose the one that’s best for your running style and preferences.

The Asics Gel-Nimbus 26 is like a cloud for your feet. It’s softer than ever, with an upper that hugs your foot like a happy hug. This update to the Gel-Nimbus 25 boasts better grip thanks to a wider outsole, so you can channel your inner cheetah without slipping and sliding.

Speaking of happy feet, the Nimbus 26 has a roomier toe box and more breathable materials, making those long runs feel like a breeze. The FF Blast Plus ECO cushioning is like a super-responsive foam party for your soles, absorbing shock and keeping you light on your feet. Plus, Asics’ innovative PureGEL tech makes landings feel like sinking into a marshmallow (in the best way possible).

Our reviewers gave these shoes a big thumbs up for ultimate comfort, especially on long hauls. Fancy features like a super comfy sockliner and extra ventilation mean happy feet, no matter your running level.

The Asics Gel-Nimbus 26 is also kind to your conscience!  It’s lightweight (think 10.7 ounces for a size 9) and uses recycled materials in the upper. Run happy, knowing you’re doing your part for the planet.

Brooks Ghost 15

Women's Shoes
original price:$139.95 price:$109.95

The Brooks Ghost is a tried and true choice for women’s or men’s running shoes, a staple on store shelves and streets for 15 years. It’s an everyday running shoe known for comfort and reliability day in and day out.

Our reviewers love the Brooks Ghost 15 for its soft cushioning and supportive construction. The new DNA Loft v2 compression-molded midsole is an upgrade from the Ghost 14’s DNA Loft. Even softer and more lightweight, it’s what sets the Brooks Ghost 15 apart from previous models and other classic running shoes.

We suggest the Brooks Ghost 15 for everyday road running. It weighs just 9.8 ounces and has a drop from heel to toe of 12mm.

For a similar fit with additional support, a great option is the Brooks Adrenaline 22 GTS

HOKA Clifton 9

Women's Shoes
price:$144.95

The Hoka Clifton 9 is another classic running shoe ideal for daily training. The impressive amount of cushioning makes it a favorite among our Marathon Sports long-distance runners, as well as those who prefer a brisk walk. The thick EVA foam cushion provides comfort no matter how many miles you feel like going.

The Clifton 9 cushioning gives a bouncy, energetic feeling that distance runners often prefer. However, it remains lightweight enough to wear day in and day out.

We find the Hoka Clifton 9 especially comfortable for runners with wide feet or those who prefer a bit of extra room in the toe. The spacious toe box did not cause any rubbing or blisters among our testers, and they appreciated that detail.

This shoe weighs in at 7.3 ounces for women and 8.7 ounces for men. The heel-to-toe drop is just 5mm.

Runners looking for a daily trainer that improves their form while offering incredible comfort may have found their ideal shoe with the Altra Torin 7. It’s perhaps best known for its ultra-comfortable design, based around a midsole made from Altra EGO Max foam with additional stack height for improved comfort on this new model.

Available for both men and women, the Torin 7 also features an updated heel collar to keep you locked in while a plush tongue cradles your food. This latter feature has been a particular area of improvement since the Torin 5. A pair weighs under 9.9 ounces for men and just 8 ounces for women. 

In addition, the Altra Torin is great for those looking for a bit more space and a roomier feel. It offers its signature FootShape design, crafted to encourage your foot to spread comfortably while improving your natural stride and mechanics. This is further enhanced by the FootPod outsole technology. 

Meanwhile, a unique Balanced Cushioning platform is zero-drop, positioning the front of your foot and heel at the same height. Our reviewers feel it improves your alignment and form with each run or walk. It’s all capped off with a stylish engineered mesh upper that keeps you dry and cool no matter where you’re running or how many miles you’re logging today.

Long-distance runners and casual joggers alike have been wearing the Wave Rider for a while now, but the Wave Rider 27 continues to improve the model. It’s a top choice for those with joint pain or dealing with the effects of an injury, thanks to the Mizuno Wave plate, which more evenly distributes the energy through the platform and increases stability. It’s paired with Mizuno Enerzy foam, a high-rebound yet incredibly soft material that improves resilience and overall performance. The Wave Rider 27 features a 12-millimeter drop. 

Both men (9.9 ounces per pair) and women (8.3 ounces) can enjoy the striking color combinations, including pink and black. This shoe even helps the planet, using recycled materials to craft a great-looking but durable engineered mesh upper that keeps you cool and dry. Plus, they’ll take everything you can throw at them with a durable outsole made of X10 carbon rubber.

In addition, those who’d like to support a good cause with their footwear purchase will be pleased to learn that Mizuno works with and donates to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a partnership that inspired a version of this shoe.

price:$0.00

The Puma Velocity Nitro 2 is a running shoe that athletes can feel confident wearing in all settings. It’s sleek, stylish, and made for everyday training.

Puma characterizes the Velocity Nitro 2 as an all-in-one running shoe, and our experts believe they hit the nail on the head. Standout features include the light and responsive NITROFOAM advanced foam technology, high traction rubber PUMAGRIP, and engineered mesh upper for breathability.

A significant advantage our reviewers saw is that the Puma Velocity Nitro 2 doesn’t appear bulky like many other cushioned running shoes. The slimmer appearance makes this a shoe that can easily head from training to a casual day at work. However, reflective accents and available vibrant colorways provide superior visibility for running in low-light conditions.

The women’s shoe weighs just 7.3 ounces, and the men’s weighs 8.8 ounces. The heel-to-toe drop is 10mm.

The Saucony Triumph 21 takes the best of this longtime running shoe favorite and improves it even further. The most noticeable update is a freshly redesigned upper.

Dual uses of PWRRUN+ technology ensure ultimate comfort, with a soft yet responsive midsole and extra cushioning from a sock liner that cradles your foot through long runs and everyday walks alike.  It’s constructed with a 10-millimeter offset for additional support and comfort. 

Add in a plush collar and padded tongue, and you may not want to take them off, even after your workout is over. Traction and durability also won’t be a concern, as Saucony has placed XT-900 carbon rubber along the outsole in strategic spots for maximum grip without adding too much weight. All of these benefits of the Triumph 21 weigh in at just 9.8 ounces for men and 8.8 ounces for women.
