    The Brooks PureCadence 6 is a lightweight, precision-cushioned shoe that provides a connected running experience as it hugs every contour of the foot with no heel slippage and keeps you close to the running surface while still protected from it

    The Nike Speed Rival 6 is a well cushioned and durable racing flat with an entry level price, but not entry level features. This is a great flat for runners wanting a bit more room in their racing shoes throughout the mid foot and toe box

    The adidas adizero tempo 9 is a phenomenal shoe modeled after an original, proven racer from adidas yet with updates of the latest technology in sole cushion and stability.

    The Mizuno Wave Sonic is a new edition to their racing line up that will eventually become the only racing option that Mizuno offers. While it is affordable and is very durable for a racing shoe, it does not feel as fast as other racing options on the market

    The Hoka One One Tracer 2 offers runners a lightweight, responsive and fast shoe. Best as a training shoe, but also fine for racing up to the marathon distance, the Tracer 2 is excellent for longer workouts. The shoes are more expensive than others in this category but the combination of excellent cushioning and lightness are

    The Nike Zoom Streak 6 is the latest evolution in a long line of lightweight marathon racers from Nike. While the fit, cushioning, and traction are superb, a subpar upper construction holds back the shoe

    Simply put, Nike has designed the greatest marathon racing shoe in history. The Vaporfly 4% is the culmination of a great deal of design research by Nike for the Breaking2 project. If you're willing to pay almost $300 to get into a major marathon, as well as travel expenses, having the absolute best shoe on your foot for the
