    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 On Cloudflash is the company's racing flat option. It is quick, responsive and lightweight, but lacks the padding to be useable in longer distance races

    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. It's a beefed up racer or a minimal stability trainer, however you want to view and use it (or both!) for speed and distance running

    The On Cloudrush ($130) is an all-new racing shoe that is designed for speed, mostly on shorter races. The Cloudrush, which replaces the now-discontinued Cloudracer, can also be used for speedwork or as a daily trainer, but I would caution against using it for races longer than 10Ks

    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

    The New Balance FuelCore Sonic has all the makings of a solid trainer for logging big miles, a firm responsive midsole, beefy outsole, and durable upper with a great fit. The Boa lacing might seem a bit gimmicky, but it does a great job of distributing pressure and is wickedly fast to put on and take off, which helps get those

    The Under Armor Thredborne Fortis is a lightweight shoe that in all instances I expected to perform well on short distance, long distance and speed work runs. It was disappointing that this was not the case. The Thredborne Fortis has a long way to go in order to compete with similar shoe brands like Nike and Adidas
