Best overall

Thanks for making our daily runs nice and stable, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21! The upper hugged our feet well, and the midsole is balanced - it's neither mushy nor too rigid. It just kept our motions in check, preventing any excessive movements. It's certainly not a light shoe, but having tested its precursors, we can say that Brooks is heading in the right direction! Apart from support, what stood out to us also is its tank-like durability.

If you want a shoe that screams comfort, we couldn't recommend the Brooks Ghost 13 enough! It's a neutral daily trainer that's padded so generously all throughout, it felt like a couch to our feet. It didn't make us run fast, but it made our feet stable and protected from all the pounding on the pavement - easily, this is our champion on long, easy-paced runs!

Best road

Already in its fifth version, the Nike Revolution is a budget-friendly shoe we think runs best if you're a runner who logs less than 10 miles per week. It's not durable, and it's not responsive, but if you're new to running, it's a good start. Just don't expect something that will wow your feet. Overall, it's a daily trainer for neutral runners who don't want to dig deep into their pockets.

The Ghost 14 from Brooks really fits the bill as the shoe for all runners. It's a workhorse that's comfy enough for easy days, responsive for tempo sessions, and is heavy-duty to handle light trails. Overall, a no-fuss daily trainer that will work for all your runs!

Touted as a light trail running shoe, the Nike Air Max Torch 4 sports quality features ready to beat the competition. Packed with Nike's innovative midsole components, the running shoe offers premium support and lockdown. Because it is engineered with top-notch technologies, the neutral runner does not sacrifice weight. With the Nike Air Torch 4, athletes are geared for comfort, protection, and superior grip on any type of terrain.

Best Nike

If there's one thing we can't take away from the Pegasus 38, it's that it's the GOAT of all workhorse shoes in our arsenal! It oozes with plushness, stability, and pop, doing it all from slow days, tempo sessions, and gym workouts even. If you want to run with fun, take the Pegasus any day!

In the Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit 2, our feet just felt locked in place! And even after rough wear testing, this daily trainer proved itself a durable shoe. It's loaded with lots of cushion that's not too soft nor too rigid, making it supportive and ideal for heavy runners. As a daily running shoe, it sticks to what it's designed to do - it's not going to make you run fast, but it does offer a smooth, easy ride.

Best budget

Probably the only daily stability shoe in our list that's bouncy, and at the same time, supportive. Say hello to the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20! It doesn't have an obtrusive nor a rigid ride, making it fit for mild to moderate overpronators. And generally, its supportive features just make it an outstanding choice for distances ranging from half marathons to full marathons.

If we were stuck with only one running shoe that can do it all, without a second thought, we'd pick the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37. It's a workhorse, and it does its job too damn well! It can handle daily runs, long miles, and it doesn't do less in tempo sessions either. Even better, it's comfy and bouncy, generating a fun ride whatever the pace!
