Skechers GOrun Ride 5
untitled-1

We just had to include a Sketchers shoe on our list, and so we decided to go for the GOrun Ride 5 model. That’s mainly because this shoe fills in the sweet spot between cushioning and speed in the Performance category, and it’s also worth noting that Sketchers has managed to improve the shoe’s cushioning without sacrificing its lightness in any way. The midsole incorporates something called Resalyte cushioning, which is a Sketchers proprietary compound with memory retention.

Saucony Breakthru 2

The Breakthru 2 represents Saucony’s successful attempt at improving the original model, which was already the company’s lightest everyday trainer when it came out in 2015. The new model features a sleeker design, a firmer ride and a lighter feel. Furthermore, its rubbery outsole ensures durability in the long run by making sure that the kicks don’t get a worn down look too early. As for the midsole, it includes PowerGrid technology, which stabilizes and centers the foot in order to absorb and distribute impact evenly.

Boasting a classic look, the Mizuno Wave Catalyst weighs just 9.5 oz, and it features a special midsole foam material named U4ic (euphoric). The shoe offers a firm yet comfortable ride, and it can be used for running sessions and gym workouts without any issues. The bright red upper complemented by black and yellow details on the sides further enhance the product’s classic look, which is definitely a plus in our book.
