The 7 Best Running Shoes for 2017

1.) Hoka One One Challenger ATR 3

Type: Trail Shoe
Cost: $130
Summary: The Challenger ATR 3 has only been slightly tweaked since the last version. The toe box feels more roomy and the lugs in the middle of the forefoot have been spaced out to better shed mud.

2.) Brooks Ravenna 8

Type: Road Shoe
Cost: $120
Summary: The Ravenna has long been capable of handling both long runs and tempo runs with ease. The update has a softer ride and springier toe-off, and an X-shaped patch of rubber in the midfoot smooths the gap between the heel and forefoot.

3.) Saucony Peregrine 7

Type: Trail Shoe
Cost: $120
Summary: The Peregrine 7 holds price steady while offering a lot of versatility. Saucony removed a block of bouncy foam from the heel but gave the shoe a thin, full-length layer of the same material directly below the sockliner. The upper has a durable thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) wrap over the mesh.

4.) Adidas Supernova

Type: Road Shoe
Cost: $130
Summary: Adidas overhauled the Supernova from top to bottom, making it softer to appeal to more runners. To amplify the cushioning, it added even more Boost in the heel for a bouncier feeling. The heel and forefoot cushioning have gotten considerably softer while a rail of firmer EVA foam helps runners stay centered over the midsole.
