Best running shoes

It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner jogger or an experienced marathon racer - having a good pair of running shoes is a must. 

Not only will they give your feet comfort as you pound the streets Rocky-style, but they can also give extra support and minimise the risk of injury.

Here we pick out five of the best running shoes to buy this year.

1

Asics

Brooks shoes are designed for runners who want more support, not just for the feet, but also for the knees; they come in a good selection of widths, so you can get a really close fit.

Perfect for off-road runners, this shoe combines lightweight cushioning with a durable outsole, and a breathable water-repellent top.
