Top Ten Best Running Shoe Brands

The Top Ten
1 Brooks

Brooks makes amazing trainers and are my favorite brand which is why I think they're the best running shoe. Nike though has amazing spikes and racing shoes. Brooks makes amazing spikes and racing shoes too, but I'd prefer nike for a spike or race shoe.

Nike is a fashion brand that creates shoes that make your think, "these are bad," or "These are okay." Brooks shoes are what you put on when you only want to have to say one word: amazing.

They are the best sneakers I've ever had. I'll never buy another brand. Wear them to the gym for workouts & for walking. I'd recommend them to anyone!

Nuke is a lifestyle/fashion shoe. It is not a running shoe. Brooks are for true Runners.

Good running shoes that don't look ugly. Also get cheap quickly after a couple of months after release that make them cheaper than other brands.

Also people who say "You're not a real runner unless you wear *insert shoe*" STOP. Just stop and think back at what you said. Many people here really need to take their chill. I mean like we're talking about running shoes. Just wear what works for you

I agree, Nike is ore of a fashion shoe, but it did not say best preforming running shoe, it said best running shoe, therefore Nike seals the deal.

Brooks? Laugh out loud, is that a sick joke? Nike #1 always and forever!

Best shoes... Style, comfort, unbeatable...
Rough & tough shoes...

6 Saucony

Saucony is without a doubt one of the best running shoes I have ever used. The price can sometimes be on the high end and I get why people shy away from it. However that being said, these shoes seriously last and are the lightest shoes you will ever buy. Try these shoes out and you wont regret it. I used to use these back when I used to run in track but I even use them now just because of how light and comfortable they are.

Best shoes- fit well, good cushioning but not overkill, responsive. All around awesome brand. Looks are great too!

Shoes are comfortable, breathable, and durable and that's all you can ask for.

Pretty cool shoe

7 Mizuno

Wonderful for running marathons. Extremely dynamic and very nice on your feet.

Lightweight and nothing beats it's air mesh which provides your feet oxygen.

Try the creation or prophecy. I only run in mizuno or brooks.

Professional running shoes.

8 Skechers

It's the greatest show for me.

Very nice shoes

9 New Balance New Balance Athletics, Inc. (NB), best known as simply New Balance, is one of the world's major sports footwear and apparel manufacturers. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, the multinational corporation was founded in 1906 as the New Balance Arch Support Company.

I have some really awesome new balance shoes: lightweight, easy to run in, and good for all sports. Asics is also good but not that good. But Brooks at the top: never even heard of them

Every time the release a new shoe they just keep getting better.

1200 American workers. Buy American.

10 Puma

Very underrated - many puma shoes with low heel-toe drop; makes you run faster and makes running fun. Like an open sportscar.

Puma or nothing

The Contenders
11 Altra
12 Newton

Newtons are definitely the greatest brand of this time and will only get better, also though I don't run in Hokas, these two brands are probably together the greatest brands of this decade.
