It's no secret that lululemon is one of our favorite athleticwear brands to shop for leggingssports bras, belt bags and more—which brings us to its newest launch: the blissfeel 2 running shoe. They just hit the market on March 7, and while they're based on the original pair that broke the internet less than a year ago (in March 2022), the blissfeel 2 features a new layered textile that allows them to contour to your feet even more, so they fit like a glove as you run, skip and live life.

The shoes were designed with a more refined upper that extends through the heel for a "cradled sensation," and a 3D-molded midfoot panel for optimal stability from start to finish. To see how they held up on the road, we tapped our managing editor and resident runner, Catrina Yohay, for her thoughts on the new release. “I’m obsessed with the construction of the new blissfeel 2,” she tells us. “It provides noticeably more structure than the original iteration, but is just as light, springy and flexible.”

As a long-distance runner, Yohay needs a shoe that can hold up to 30-mile (or more) weeks. The blissfeel 2 helps her go the distance. “It has just the right amount of cushion and bounce, absorbing and distributing the impact of each step evenly throughout my foot, so I can slow down or speed up in one fluid motion. I feel grounded and supported, without any over-the-top padding. And that midsole panel is pure genius. It provides support and structure exactly where I need it, without interfering with my stride, foot strike or ankle flexion. I wore them straight out of the box on a 5-mile tempo run (that included some unforeseen hills) and was shocked by how lived in they felt,” the sure sign of a good running shoe. “I have chronic plantar fasciitis so my feet are super picky. These rival my usual go-to’s, the Brooks Glycerin 20, like no other shoe I’ve tried.”

The main difference between the original blissfeel and the blissfeel 2 is the addition of a layered textile that contours to your foot, so you can feel confident in going the extra mile, whether running, jogging or walking. Not to mention, lululemon used the same women-first innovation it used for the blissfeel, which means they were made with the highest standards, taking into account what women actually want their shoes to look and feel like.

It almost sounds too good to be true, but when it comes to lululemon, we know we're getting nothing but the absolute best, which is why we're wasting no time scooping up the new running shoes in as many colorways as possible (including the Raw Linen/Highlight Yellow/Iced Lavender, the vibey neutral of our dreams).

For sizing, Yohay says the new shoe runs a smidge big compared to the original blissfeel sneaks. “I’m a 9 in the OGs but an 8.5 actually fits better in the 2s.” If you typically straddle two sizes, this might be a shoe you can comfortably size down in.

Like most viral lululemon gear, these shoes are bound to sell out fast, so grab a pair while you still can.
