There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who run and those who don’t (period). But these three running sneakers have the power to turn anybody into a marathoner…OK, maybe a 5K-er.

Editors’ Pick: Brooks Womens Adrenaline Gts 19
- Cushions feet with every step
- Stabilizing design supports overpronation
- Helps protect knees by keeping movement in check
When you have a question about running, you want to ask someone with experience, right? Marathon experience, to be exact. So we went straight to our staff’s resident marathoner, Anna, for her top pick. “These sneakers are good for both short and long runs. They’re also great for runners who tend to suffer from overpronation and develop plantar fasciitis or shin splints if they wear the wrong shoes (ahem, me). I put about 400 miles on each pair I own, which is about 150 miles more than I can on other brands without getting hurt. They’re also designed pretty sleek for a ‘supportive’ shoe,” Anna says.
Best Value: Saucony Women's Triumph Iso 4 Running Shoe
- Fully cushioned from heel to toe
- Made with more stretch to fit to your preference
- Mesh upper keeps you cool and comfy
Sure, we want our running shoes to be light enough that we don’t even realize they’re on, but we also want them to perform. Behold: The Saucony Triumph Iso 4. This cloud-like sneaker has more stretch, more support and super-breathable mesh to ensure a smooth ride from point A to point B—proving you don’t need to spend tons of money for a quality run.
Splurge-worthy: Asics Women's Gel-kayano 22 Running Shoe
- Super-light design
- Moisture-wicking sock liner
- GEL Cushioning prevents overpronation
If you’re looking for a light-as-a-feather sneak, this is your model. This version has over 2,000 positive reviews on Amazon, with its predecessor (the GEL-Kayano 21) raking in over 1,800. Its legendary GEL-Cushioning is great for shock absorption, and its Impact Guidance system works with your natural gait, making this sneaker well worth the price.
