The Mizuno Wave Rider 24 has become a household running name. It's a shoe that has remained relatively constant over the years, especially with its Wave plate, which can be considered the ancestor of modern carbon plates. However, this twenty-fourth version has a major new feature: the Mizuno Enerzy foam. Without replacing the famous U4ic, it complements it and softens the ride of the shoe with its greater flexibility. Thus, while the Mizuno Wave Rider has always had the reputation of being firm, the MWR24 is more forgiving. Overall, runners appreciated the cushioning, noting a good balance between cushioning and bounce. However, some complained about the Mizuno Wave plate, which, according to them, "is useless and makes the shoe heavier." On this subject, let's note that the Wave Rider 24's weight is reasonable, with 281 g (9.9 oz) for men and 232 g (8.2 oz) for women. Secondly, the new Air Mesh was also very well received. Testers note that it marks a clear improvement over the Waveknit mesh that Mizuno has been pushing in recent years on some of its models. The mesh is thick while ensuring good airflow in the shoe. Besides, the upper uses fewer overlays without reducing the effectiveness of the lockdown. Finally, the outsole is equipped with carbon rubber in certain areas to improve traction and protect the shoe. On this last point, runners were a bit disappointed: they note that the unprotected parts (made of exposed foam) tend to wear quickly. In summary, the Mizuno Wave Rider 24 makes great strides (pun intended) with a new, slightly softer cushioning and an improved, more comfortable upper—a very good model for daily training.

The Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 6 is a lightweight trail shoe that offers a good balance between ground feeling and protection. Let's say it right away: this new version brings few fundamental changes after the thorough redesign of the previous model. If you liked the Kiger 5, you will not be disappointed by the K6. It features a dynamic and versatile cushioning that's ideal for tempo-style speed sessions on trails. The shoe offers good shock absorption without isolating the foot from the ground. With a stack height of 24 mm under the heel, cushioning is therefore moderate. However, it should be noted that some runners have found the heel particularly rigid which can be disconcerting given the flexibility of the forefoot. Then, traction is always very good on trails of medium technical difficulty. The moderately deep lugs give a good grip, especially in the mud. The non-slip rubber triangle in the middle of the outsole divides runners: some find it effective while others would prefer lugs as on the rest of the sole. Finally, the main change is in the upper. The support is now more precise without being strict. In addition, the toe box is also more spacious for more comfort. In summary, the Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 6 is a very good trail shoe that still offers a great ride for daily training. PROS

Crafted specifically for taking on tough mountain trails, the Merrell MTL Skyfire is the perfect shoe for higher elevations and shorter running stints on uphill terrains. Its lightweight design (9 oz./242 g) coupled with its great traction and breathable fabric makes the MTL Skyfire an extremely prudent choice for off-trail runners. Its stack dimensions are 23.5mm/17.5mm, with a drop of 6mm and lugs of 5 mm, to provide the best possible running conditions on rocky slopes. Runners who have tried the MTL Skyfire remarked that the sneaker was bouncy, comfortable, and provided a smooth running experience, though there is some discrepancy regarding adequate cushioning, which tends to be a stronger preference for female runners than male runners, according to recent studies. Runners have also stated that the MTL Skyfire is highly breathable, but that this design comes with the pitfall of absorbing a significant amount of moisture straight through to the foot on wet trails, or in rainy weather. MTL Skyfire users have also commented on the narrowness of the sneaker design, which is likely intentional to provide a snug fit for added security on rocky trails. This may make the shoe a great option for runners with narrow to medium feet but may prove too tight for runners with wider feet. For best results, runners who tried the MTL Skyfire recommend tying the laces as tightly as possible for added heel and ankle protection, though this may be unsustainable and prove to be too uncomfortable for longer runs. Note that while the Merrell MTL Skyfire is ideal for shorter running sessions, cross- country runners will likely do better with the sneaker's companion, the Long Sky. Runners were also a big fan of the Merrell MTL Skyfire's reasonable price of only $100, which is relatively budget-friendly compared with other sneaker brands of the same high caliber. Overall, the Merrell MTL Skyfire is a very good running shoe for off-trail, short-distance runners looking for a snug fit, lightweight design, above-average traction, and a great overall value! Longer-distance runners, or those who prefer a bit of extra cushioning, will do well to consider the brand's Long Sky option as an alternative.

Nike expands its trail collection (which already includes the Wildhorse and Terra Kiger) with this second Pegasus Trail model. Rather than a direct successor of the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail released in 2019, the Pegasus Trail 2 appears as a combo of various recent Nike models like the Vaporfly and the Turbo 2. For example, the React foam now equips the entire sole (there are no more Zoom Air units). The stack is relatively high with 31 mm under the heel and 21 mm under the forefoot. The midsole is soft but the rubber of the outsole compensates with its firmness which prevents the cushioning from being overly soft. Trailers have been impressed by the comfort and bounce of the cushioning. They also found it to be very versatile, i.e. suitable for all paces and terrains. Besides, even without the rock plate, they did not feel any pain after several hours of running. The only negative point would be the lack of stability on uneven surfaces due to the softness of the cushioning. Combined with the flexible upper, this somewhat limits the effectiveness of the shoe on very technical terrains that require a secure balance and precise foot lockdown. The upper is made of a solid mesh with a small rubber toe cap at the front. It's well ventilated to allow the foot to breathe during the effort. The toe box is relatively wide but some runners found it a little low. However, they note that this problem disappears over time as the mesh loosens. There is also a 'faux' (integrated) gaiter to better protect the foot as on the Wildhorse. Finally, the grip is also very good thanks to the rubber outsole and its wide lugs of medium depth (about 3 mm). The traction can come up a bit short on very soft mud and compact snow but allows you to also run on the road, which is ideal if you like to alternate. Overall, the Nike Pegasus Trail 2 is a very good, comfortable, and versatile trail shoe with responsive cushioning to have fun on most terrains.

Summer is around the corner and with it the new version of this Nike classic: the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37. This new model has undergone some major changes, including a new upper and cushioning. React foam is now found under the heel and midfoot, while a thicker and wider Zoom Air unit than before has been added to the forefoot. The latter is clearly noticeable under the forefoot and has the advantage of improving the bounce of the shoe, especially when the foot pushes the ground to propel the body. It should also be noted that Zoom Air cushioning is softer on the women's version than on the men's model because, according to studies carried out by the brand, women prefer softer cushioning than men. Overall, this new configuration with React foam, known for its flexibility, gives a softer cushioning than on the P36 while remaining relatively firm overall. The shoe divides testers between those who find the cushioning perfectly adequate and those who blame it for a lack of responsiveness to really have fun. The thickness of the sole remains unchanged with 28 mm under the heel and 18 mm under the forefoot (10 mm drop). The new translucent engineered mesh is breathable and offers precise socklike foot lockdown: neither too loose nor too tight. In addition, its sleek design without the Flywire cables (replaced by a band) is quite stylish. Runners agree that the upper is near perfect and marks a clear improvement over the previous model. The outsole provides good traction in urban areas and has a rubber layer thick enough to last a long time. Finally, it's interesting to note that the shoe is, unfortunately, a little bit heavier than before with 20 grams more. All in all, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37 stays the course despite significant changes and continues to establish itself as a comfortable and versatile shoe suitable for virtually every runner. Only its cushioning has disappointed some runners, but it's a matter of preference and we invite you to try it for yourself.

The Saucony Triumph 18 is the ultimate everyday trainer with comfortable cushioning and an upper that fits most runners. With a 33 mm stack height under the heel (25 mm under the forefoot), the Triumph 18 is one of Saucony's most cushioned shoes. It now features PWRRUN+ foam, which gives a soft cushioning that comfortably absorbs shocks without being too soft. The shoe provides good stability, so the high-stack cushioning does not reduce balance while running. Overall, the runners found the cushioning lively but not bouncy by any means. Unfortunately, this reduces the versatility of the shoe: it's pleasant during daily training at low or medium speed but not for speed workouts (e.g., tempo, interval). However, on the plus side, testers note that this new model has the advantage of having a smaller heel than previously for better stability and offers smoother transitions. Then, the upper is still excellent with a comfortable and effective foot lockdown. The engineered mesh is relatively thick while remaining breathable. However, given the extra weight of this new version (over 300 g/11 oz) and the natural stability of its platform, testers wondered if such a thick and elaborate mesh was essential. Finally, there is the new XT-900 (carbon) rubber on the outsole, which provides a good grip and protects the shoe from wear and tear. To summarize, the Saucony Triumph 18 is a very good running shoe that will delight runners looking for a well-cushioned shoe for regular training and long runs. However, if you want a snappy shoe to run fast, then its heavyweight and lack of springe may not be ideal.

The third model of the very successful Endorphin collection is a tempo running shoe: the Speed. Complementing the Endorphin Shift (trainer) and Endorphin Pro (versatile with carbon plate), this shoe stands out for its snappy ride at fast paces. Its neon hues and fun design also make it a very appealing shoe. The Speed's midsole is one of the most notable features of this model. Made with PEBA-based PWRRUN PB cushioning, Saucony claims that this material offers an explosive energy return. This high-stack shoe (33 mm under the heel, 25 mm under the forefoot) also features a full-length, S-curved nylon plate, and SpeedRoll geometry to provide a smooth and comfortable transition from heel to toes. Testers unanimously enjoyed the ride, but with one caveat: you have to run fast as the shoe is a bit too harsh at slow paces. The Speed is noticeably much lighter than the Endorphin Shift, giving it a more weightless feel. Runners remarked that the upper of the Speed is particularly excellent, with FORMFIT technology that enhances comfort and breathability. Meanwhile, the outsole contributes to the propulsion of the shoe, engineered with durable rubber that grips terrain and stabilizes the foot. Those who tried the Speed commented on a few drawbacks of the design. The rear and plate of the shoe, though cushioned, proved a bit too firm for some runners. However, this rigidity lessened overtime. Runners also questioned the price point of the Speed, which is $40 less than its Pro counterpart but doesn't offer the same versatility and comfort. The Speed is a great tempo shoe, meaning that it works well for interval or tempo runs, but it is not a daily trainer. Runners searching for running shoes suitable for all workouts will prefer the Pro over the Shift. Overall, the Saucony Endorphin Pro is a very good running shoe with comfortable and responsive cushioning for fast running, even though its firmness may not be to the liking of everyone.

The successor of the Reebok Nano 9, the newest Nano model — the Nano X — is already described as an improvement from previous models. It notably features advanced lace-up technology and several redesigned components for enhanced performance. A potentially strong training shoe option, the Reebok Nano X will especially be one to consider for hitting the gym, lifting some weights, and a variety of other fitness activities! The midsole of the Nano X has been designed with high-density foam for absorbing shock, yet is reactive to each jump or bounding movement, moving with the trajectory of the foot. This makes it an ideal shoe for fitness classes, CrossFit workouts, and more! Also, the shoe's re-engineered upper is highly breathable and features a wide toe box to accommodate a variety of foot sizes comfortably. Its lacing system is also notably improved, with an internal lace-up method that limits overlap but still provides foot security. Lastly, the rubber outsole of the Nano X is particularly stable, providing a solid base for heavy lifting and a range of other training sessions. Some notable downsides of the Nano X include its particularly "clunky" design (it is the heaviest iteration of the Nano line to date, with its increased lip on the heel), as well as its lack of tread/grip when running. Of course, while the Nano X can be used as an occasional running shoe, it's primarily designed with gym workouts in mind. Also, let's note that some athletes found the platform a bit rigid, especially in the area around the toes (and despite the spacious shape of the toe box). Overall, we give this shoe a good rating of 9 for its comfort and stability during training sessions.

The Salomon Sonic 3 Balance was only recently launched in spring, 2020, but has consistently received high praise from runners since that time. Designed with an extra "bounce" from the Optivibe midsole — which equates to high energy return — as well as a JPAD component, it aims to reduce vibrations and, thus, muscle fatigue for quicker recovery time. This makes it an ideal all-round shoe especially suitable for long runs. The upper mesh design provides optimal breathability and lends itself to a sleek, attractive appearance that simultaneously molds to the foot. The Balance is also designed with the runner's comfort in mind, with a lightly-padded heel and Ortholite insole that keeps the foot secure while running longer distances. As a bonus, it is also designed for a wider variety of foot shapes and sizes than other Salomon shoes, which tend to run narrow in the toe box. Speaking of long-distance training, runners who have tried the Balance rave about its restorative comfort and padding. After intense training sessions, many users of the shoe remarked that that didn't suffer from muscle aches, thanks to the protection and cushioned offered by the shoe. Such reviews can sometimes seem a bit anecdotal but in the case of the Balance, we do see a clear pattern that suggests that the shoe does provide great comfort. There were only a few downsides noted by runners, among them being a bit of rigidness in the design of the shoe (runners stated that they would prefer more flexibility) and heel heaviness. Also, some noted a lack of tongue padding, which causes tightly-laced shoes to dig into the ankle as opposed to cradling it comfortably. According to some runners, the weight of the shoe, although reasonable for a cruiser of this kind, contributed to less-smooth transitions, which weren't ideal for sprinting or faster paces. Overall, the Sonic 3 Balance makes a very good selection for runners seeking durability, foot security, a sleek design, and ample padding to absorb shock and vibration.

The Nike Air Zoom Winflo 6 is a stability road shoe. This 2019 version embraces the bold new tapered design of the Nike running shoe range. The shoe looks just like the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 except for its much heavier weight: 312 grams for men and 255 grams for women. Indeed, the Winflo 6 has stability features that make it somewhat heavier. It should be noted that the effectiveness of this type of correction in reducing the risk of injury is not proven by science (read our article for more information). These stability technologies can nevertheless be comfortable in some cases, which is the most important criterion when choosing running shoes. Overall, the Nike Air Zoom Winflo 6 offers great comfort which can make it a shoe of choice if you find the support of the Pegasus insufficient. It's a versatile shoe that will suit all types of workouts. In short, a very good road shoe for runners who are looking to stabilise their overpronation.

Saucony Switchback 2 review trail running shoe
The Saucony Switchback 2 is a good light trail running shoe with low stack cushioning to go fast on moderate terrains.
More details +
The Saucony Switchback 2 has many new and exciting features while retaining the beloved elements of the original version. With its low stack height, low drop, flexible material, and dynamic PWWRUN midsole technology, the Switchback 2 is an interesting choice for trailers looking for a nice ground feel while running. The PWRRUN midsole that blends EVA and TPU contributes to a soft and yet bouncy ride, which runners noted was a significant upgrade to the shoe. This technology replaces the EVERUN midsole found in the original Switchback and makes the Switchback 2 a bit denser for added stability. The PWRRUN midsole, combined with a woven rock plate, protects the foot and keeps it secure. Despite the rock plate addition, the Switchback 2 still molds nicely to the terrain and makes each stride snappy. The shoe's sock-like upper provides added flexibility and comfort; however, some runners remarked that they could feel sharp rocks and pebbles. One unique feature of the Switchback 2 is its BOA side lacing system. While at first glance, this type of lacing may seem to inhibit foot security, runners remarked that it works. The shoe stays snug all over the foot, without individual pressure points, and can be adjusted with a quick twist of the BOA. In terms of grip, the medium-size lugs (3.5 mm) provide excellent traction on moderate terrains. Trailers were surprised by how effective they were in comparison to their shallow profile. Though the Switchback 2 received a lot of positive feedback from users, there were a few notable pitfalls of the shoe. For one, the fit is secure, but not locked-in enough to perform on more technical trails. The upper also lacks breathability and absorbs the sharp edges of rocks and other terrain debris. Runners also noted that the Switchback 2 isn't soft enough for long runs and may prove uncomfortable after a while if you're not used to low stack shoes. To summarize, the Saucony Switchback 2 is a good low stack/low drop trail running shoe best suited for moderate terrain and short to mid distances.
