Using Shoeguide.run to find the best running shoes

Published January 01, 2018, Author Shoe Guide

At shoeguide.run we look to bring you the very best information about running shoes.

Whatever you are looking for from your training shoes we aim to provide you with the information and search tools to find the best running shoes for you.

This article is a quick guide to help you make the best use of the tools and information which will guide you to the running shoes that are best for you. We always recommend trying on shoes before you buy to check for size and that the running shoes are suited to your needs but shoeguide.run will give you a good guide to the best running shoes on the market and will help you to narrow down the selection.

Shoe Wizard
The shoe wizard is the best way to choose your running shoes. You are able to go through and answer a series of questions which mean that you can then be given a list of the best running shoes for your needs. The search shows the running shoes that fit the criteria you have given that have been given the best scores.
If you need more information on how to answer the questions which help you choosing running shoes see this article: Guide to choosing running shoes and trainers

This allows you to search for running shoes by shoe category. Running shoes are split into Neutral shoes (which are also called cushioning shoes), Support shoes, Motion Control shoes, Trail shoes, Lightweight shoes, natural shoes and racing shoes. All the running shoes reviewed on the site in the category you have chosen will be shown when you click on one of these options.

Find by weight of runner
Many running shoes are suited to runners of different weights. Some running shoes will suit a range of different weights. Some are running shoes for heavy runners, others are suited to lighter runners. Getting the best running shoes for your weight will help keep you comfortable. You can choose from running shoes for heavier runners, shoes for runners of regular weight, or running shoes for light runners.
Our search tools will call out all the running shoes that are best for someone of your weight.
To find the best running shoes by the 'Running surface' criteria click on Light, Regular or Heavy

Find by surface
We all know runners run on different surfaces. Treadmills are very different to trails. This search tool will show you the running shoes designed for the surface that you run on.
To find the best running shoes by the 'Running surface' criteria click on Road, Treadmill, Light Trail, Trail or Severe Trail

Find by off-road use
Not all off road events are the same. If you are heading for an off-road race this search tool will show you the running shoes that are best for the off-road event that you have planned.
To find the best running shoes by the 'Off-road use' criteria click on Short Trail, Long Trail or Adventure

Most Popular Running Shoes
This tool calls up the best running shoes in each category - it gives you the headlines on the top scoring running shoes on the site. The list is limited to currently in-line products, although you can often find cheaper running shoes by buying shoes that have dropped out of line. Sometimes these are just a different colour, other times the shoe has had a technical update too.
