How we test running shoes

For this special feature, we’ve reviewed 90+ blue running kicks from Nike, and selected our top picks in different categories. That means each model on the list is put to the wringer to prove its durability, comfort, performance, and overall value. Whether you want a reliable trail companion or a budget-friendly road partner, we have you covered.

We follow our strict methodologies in our process, which include:

  • Testing and reviewing only the shoes that we purchase with our own money. This is in line with our RunRepeat Policy on transparency and a 100% unbiased approach.
  • Performing mechanical tests inside our own lab by slicing the shoes open, and measuring over 30 parameters, from energy return, ventilation, durability, and many more.
  • Real-world wear-testing the shoes on the road or trail, clocking up at least 30-40 miles on each model, and recording our impressions and general feedback.
  • Collating information from other shoe specialists and regular runners.

For the overall ratings, we go to our CoreScore system and calculate all the aggregated data. After punching all the numbers, the resulting final score appears on each model ranging from 0 to 100.

It's stable and comfy and will make your run cloud-like. When faced with slick surfaces, however, it shows its limitations.

Great!
4.5 / 5 from 414 users
85 / 100 from 4 experts

Pros

  • Excellent cushioning
  • Suitable for all-day wear
  • Wide platform 
  • Great stability
  • Snug and supportive heel area
  • Efficient landing and take-off
  • Eye-catching colorways

Cons

  • Poor breathability

Verdict

The Nike Air Zoom Structure 23 offers a different feel from its predecessor. It has a softer and more responsive cushioning but continues to provide a decent level of stability. This high-mileage Nike running shoe is not ideal for excessive overpronators because of its soft midsole. Also, the plush cushioning delivers an all-day comfort but users must keep in mind that it may feel warm on hot summer days.

The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% is a race shoe that made us zoom through the streets! It's fast, bouncy, and light and - it's everything speed-ready. With its steep price, it's exclusively for runners who only care about beating PBs and nothing else. For a race shoe, it's surprisingly cushy. During landing, our feet felt like they were stepping on marshmallows!
