5 Best Running Shoes for Your Daily Run

Whether you are training for a marathon or simply jogging down your neighborhood, it is always important to have the best running shoes available; especially to prevent any injury

Each year, as many more options become available, it gets harder and harder to find the perfect shoe. Unfortunately, not every shoe is made the exact same and that does not make things any easier! It is a great thing that we have experts to put them to the test for us! However, the perfect shoe for you individually depends on the physical structure of your feet, your gait, and how your arch lies.

According to Runner's World, here are 5 of the best rated running shoes available on the market:
Asics Gel Kayano 20 {$160}: Asics has been known to produce prime running shoes for as long as I can remember. Back in high school, my track shoes were actually made by Asics-then I discovered the actual shoe line itself. Ahh, glorious! The Kayano features Fluidfit upper technology which combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, fitting like a customized glove. It is also gender specific-women's models feature a lower-density top layer in the midsole, allowing female athletes to better enjoy the benefits of midsole compression. The Kayano also features FluidRide, which provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability.
Saucony Kinvara 4 {$100}: Saucony, from what I have heard all of my life, has been dubbed the "best running shoe ever made." The company has been producing running shoes for a while now-since 1898, to be exact. The Kinvara, voted Best Update by Runner's World, features FlexFlim for a lightweight, seamless feel. The shoe also features memory foam for a nice, cushioned feel. The shoe's heel was also updated in the landing zone for smoother transitions and improved overall ride.

Mizuno Wave Prophecy 3 {209.99}: Mizuno is another brand that is frequently associated with the likes of Asics & Brooks since it is primarily known as a "running brand," though they do make shoes for other activities such as golf, baseball, and soccer. However, most people tend to shy away from Mizuno due to the outrageous prices. This shoe is said to deliver a one of a kind experience by offering a smooth, dynamic, and propulsive fit. The Wave Prophecy features Dynamotion Fit Anatomical Lacing System, which follows the natural form of your foot to create harmony with every step. It also features the INFINITY WAVE to provide  heel-to-toe cushion and drive.
Brooks Addiction 11 {$120.00}: Brooks is yet another great running shoe and one I have personally worn during a race. The comfort, in my opinion, was impeccable!  The Brooks Addiction features Brooks DNA, which adds cushioning for a secure & generous fit while controlling motion. The midsole of this shoe is also made of biodegradable materials which is very interesting! This shoe is said to be best for flat footed runners


 Nike Free Flyknit {$160}: Everyone knows Nike. They produce shoes from running to basketball to golf to-whatever you can do in a shoe! But, holy styles! There are tons and tons of them for each occasion, so things can get confusing. The Flyknit collection allows runners to choose the desired level of flexibility and close-to-the-ground ride. The shoe features hexagonal flex grooves on the bottoms and the design of the shoe itself mimics your actual feet, aiming to allow the foot to move more naturally.

What is your favorite tried and true running shoe?
