Lace-up. Set. Mark. Go! Whether you are an avid runner, a pro or prefer the fit of running shoes, Sun & Sand Sports has options to take you from a beginner to a pro.
Running has some obvious benefits of improved cardiovascular health, weight loss and building muscles. Running helps to reduce stress, boosts confidence, and improves mood.
But it also helps to connect with yourself and build mind-muscle connection, improves bone health, aids better focus, helps sleep better, improves the mind and fights age-related cognitive decline and so much more.
With so many benefits, it is hard to not give running a shot. Agreed, it can be daunting to find the best pair of running shoes, but that’s what we are here for. Here are our top 5 running shoes with some info to let you know why they made the cut.
First up, we got the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 39 running shoes for men and women – a great choice for beginners or pros. The 39th iteration is great for indoor or outdoor running and perfect for your daily runs, tempo-paced runs or long-distance runs. The breathable and lightweight mesh upper with the Nike React technology and dual Zoom Air unit keeps your feet ventilated while giving you the propulsion to move forward. The Flywire technology in the midfoot helps to stabilise the foot while the firm yet cushioned heel optimises landing.
Get ready for immense support and stride every time you run when you wear the adidas Ultraboost 22 running shoes for women or men. Taking cues from its predecessor, the sock-like construction of the shoe keeps your feet secure and the thickened midsole gives you the cushioning that’s geared towards long-distance running. The better bounce thanks to the Linear Energy Push and the signature BOOST midsole gives you a little push like a motivating friend. Sitting on the Stretchweb outsole with Continental Rubber gives the shoe durability and a firm grip. A pure versatile shoe for short-tempo runs to long-distance runs.
V in the name stands for versatility. The New Balance 1080v12 for men is our top-of-the-line performance pair. Perfect to wear for day-to-day use or training for a marathon. The fresh foam delivers incredible comfort, giving you a smooth transition when you move from the treadmill to the track. The updated midsole applies more foam to wider areas to cover your entire foot. The Hypoknit upper is designed to provide a locked-in feel with strategic stretch and support while the blown rubber sole gives you responsive rebound. The pair weighs less than 250 grams and but the ultra-lightweight running shoes pack a punch in comfort and tread.
Next up, we got one for short-distance running enthusiasts or ultra beginners. The Under Armour UA HOVR Phantom 3 running shoes for women feature the signature UA HOVR™ technology that gives you zero-gravity-like cushioning and energy return. The ultra-breathable UA IntelliKnit upper in a sock-like fit keeps your feet secured and stabilised. The moulded midfoot along with the TPU clip along the heel keeps the feet stable across different terrains. Anatomically placed, deep flex grooves offer superior flexibility, giving you the ultimate heel-toe action. Finally, the understated outsole traction grips well to the smooth treadmill or the textured track.
Want a running shoe that is great not just for running? The Nike Air Winflo 9 running shoes for women and men is great for that. The all-rounder shoe is perfect for aiding your overall run training. The 9th edition of the Winflo is more form-fitting than its predecessors. The translucent mesh offers ventilation and soft foam with the signature Air midsole gives you a heel-to-toe bounce in your stride. The raised ankle collar with the smooth lining keeps your feet friction-free. The wide heel base offers a comfortable landing space for neutral runners.
The SL in the name means Super Light and the shoe is just that. Speed-enhancing running shoes made for training or race day. Adizero SL Running Shoe for men features hand-picked foam with innovative Lightstrike and LightstrikePRO foam that not only gives you responsive bounce but also balance stability and resilience. Made from part-recycled engineered mesh, the upper keeps your feet ventilated while keeping the environment clear from toxins. Wear it for tempo runs, long runs, and recovery runs, the shoe is durable from training day to race day.
