10 Best Treadmill Running Shoes in 2022
Running on a treadmill resembles road running more than trail running, because there are no twists, turns, puddles, obstacles. Ideal for speed runs! But, the surface is softer than roads.
That’s why nearly all road running shoes (which is ⅔ of the market) can be used for running on a treadmill. We have tested more than 100 running shoes that are treadmill-ready to pick out the best ones for you.
We have selected five categories depending on what you may consider a priority. It is the shoe’s versatility? Cushioning? Support? Ability to go fast? Price? You’ve got the top pick in each of these.

How we test running shoes
With nearly 500 shoes for treadmill running, it is our goal to help you choose the right one.
Our team spends hours scrutinizing every single release through our independent shoe testing lab:
- Our committed testers log 30-50 miles in each pair to provide extensive feedback.
- We then slice the shoes up into pieces and measure over 30 different parameters to translate "performance" into comparable data.
- All tested shoes are purchased with our own funds to help us stay unbiased.
- To make it even more comprehensive, our system collates thousands of expert and user reviews on all treadmill running shoes.
In the end, each shoe gets a CoreScore. It is a number from 0 to 100 that allows us to compare and rank all running shoes.
