We review running shoes from brands including Adidas, Asics, Nike and more, to find which have the best grip and the longest-wearing sole.

Our expert testers give each pair of running shoes a thorough work-out to help you find the models that:

  • have the best grip
  • are the slowest to wear out.

Our Recommended list will help you quickly see which models come out on top.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our non profit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
