How we test running shoes
To stay objective, we always buy the shoes we review with our own money. We also examine them thoroughly in our independent shoe testing lab.
To further our scrutiny, we also:
- Log at least 30 to 50 miles in each race running shoe
- Slice them open
- Assess and measure each part of the shoe
- Generate their Corescore based on thousands of expert and user reviews
