How we test running shoes

We like to keep everything as objective as possible. And to stay true to this, we have come up with our shoe testing lab to test each white Nike shoe on this list. Even more, we buy them with our own money to avoid brand loyalty. 

These aside, we also take extra measures to ensure a bias-free selection. We do this by: 

  • running in each shoe for at least 30 to 50 miles
  • cutting them open 
  • measuring their parts based on 30+ parameters
  • generating their Corescore using thousands of expert and user reviews

Verdict

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.

Pros

  • Insane lightness

Verdict

Ah, the Nike Free Run… Calling this a running shoe is a stretch, but there’s still a vestige of folks out there in the minimalist fan group that likes the slipper-like feel of Nike’s long-running “Free” lineup. The 2021 update steers back toward a less bizarre-looking shoe than we saw in 2020 but continues with the ultralight and ultra-flexible design.

Pros

  • True to size

  • Reliable grip on dry surfaces

Cons

  • Not very responsive
  • Poor flexibility
  • Not for long runs

Verdict

While it's a budget shoe we wanted to love, the Nike Quest 3 surely missed out on flexibility, comfort, and snappiness. If anything, it's a lightweight neutral trainer that's designed for easy days out on the road. And in this regard, the shoe delivered! For its inexpensive price tag, it's surprisingly durable too.
