Mark’s Running Blog (Road Racing Shoes)

The most important tool for any athlete is their shoes, whether it is track and field, road racing or just running.
With such a large variety of shoes on the market it can be hard to determine which one is the right one for you for racing. I compiled a list of racing shoes to hopefully make that decision a little easier.

Adidas Adios Boost: Current Special Price €100.00

Weather your racing a 5k or a marathon this shoe will get you to the finish in a fast time. With a responsive boost midsole, it provides great energy return and a full length Torsion system that creates a quick transition at toe off. This is the elite’ shoe of choice, but even if you are not an elite this shoe will help you go faster.

Asics DS Racer: Price €112.50

This shoe is one of our biggest selling racing flats that we carry. It is designed for 5k to marathon distance and is a fantastic shoe to run in. It has a Solyte midsole provide responsive cushioning while a Duomax support system provides just enough support so it is ideal for those training for the half marathon or the full marathon.

Nike LunaRacer: Price €112.50

The Lunaracer is a very popular racing shoe that we sell, especially for those training for the marathon. It has a soft and responsive Lunarlon midsole, which makes it cushioned enough for marathon racing while still being light enough to take on shorter distances.

Nike Zoom Streak: Price €95.00

This is my personal favorite. I have raced in this shoe for the last few years, from 5k to marathon. It has a lot going for it, great lightweight cushioning, a slightly wider toe box and even an internal arch strap for lightweight support. Perfect for anyone looking to run a fast time on the roads.
