How we test running shoes
There are a lot of things we consider before we choose the best running shoes for walking. And to make sure we end up with the finest, we put them through a series of tests in our own RunRepeat testing lab. Here we do the following:
- Cut the shoes into several pieces to measure them via 30+ parameters, including flexibility, strength, cushion, and more
- Log 30-50 miles of running in various terrain and conditions
All the shoes we test, we buy with our own money to avoid brand bias. And to rank our shoes we:
- Gather thousands of user and expert reviews
- Come up with a CoreScore of 0-100 to rank the shoe against 900+ running shoes for walking
