    These sneaks have a removable foam sockliner and trail-specific outsole, but no worries! These have multi-surface traction which makes 'em perfect for running on any surface.

    Promising review: "I was really hesitant about these because the bottoms are more grippy than you'd expect with a running shoe. However, I took them on a trip with me and did five miles a day for four days straight in these shoes — and I didn't have a single problem! They didn't need any breaking in, were comfortable, and feel really supportive and durable. Update: Several months later and I still love these shoes. I have never had a problem with them!" —Jessica

    Promising review: "OMG! These are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever owned (and I am a runner who went to the Junior olympics back in the day). The quality is superb! Not only is the fabric flexible, but it's also breathable. It's like running on air." —HEALTHY ONE

    Promising review: "I love these shoes and I have very picky feet. I've been a runner for years, so I've had several pair of running shoes — and these are hands-down my favorite. They are nice and lightweight, but still really cushy. I wore them with zero break-in time. I suffer from chronic achilles tendonitis and heel pain, and both are better with these shoes." —JadeVictoria

    Price: $99.49+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 11 colors)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am a trail runner, but I can't wear most trail shoes because they weigh a ton and the soles are thick...which tires your legs and slows you down. It is lightweight, flexible, has just the right amount of support, and keeps its grip with running down hill. Great running shoe!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $44.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 14 colors)

    8. Trail running shoes that are an answered prayer for stinky feet. These are made with an antimicrobial treatment to stop smelly odors in their...tracks.

    These sneakers have heel pull loops to make it easier to slip 'em on and off, as well as a wrap heel to make your foot feel super steady.

    Promising review: "I’ve been running for six years now and have never found a shoe that fit correctly. I began transitioning to lightweight footwear that corrected knee issues, but then I would get terrible blisters. These shoes are the best, most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn. The first few runs have been short (three miles or less) on an indoor track. I can’t wait to try them on the trail! These are great for bunion sufferers." —bridget sibthorp-moecker

    Price: $104.90+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in wide sizes and in three colors)

    9. Running shoes with an adjustable mid-foot saddle that make these sneakers feel as if they're designed JUST for your feet.

    These sneakers are also waterproof, meaning they won't get damaged and fall apart if you get stuck in the rain mid-run.

    Promising review: "I wore my previous pair out after about five months, but I run approximately 40 miles a week. I loved them so much that I bought them again! They were recommended to me by my podiatrist and are very comfortable and have great cushioning." —Susan P.

    Price: $54+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 10 colors)

    These sneakers have a heel wedge that make them feel even more cushioned and comfy.

    Promising review: "I'm an avid runner, but have struggled the past few years with finding shoes that I found really comfortable. They are light, comfy, and I can finally get back to running 10+ miles without my feet hurting. SO happy with these shoes!" —andrjax

    Price: $119.95+ (available in sizes 6-12 and in wide sizes and in nine colors)

    11. Air mesh running shoes for anyone with flat feet. (HELLO, ME!) These have a little extra support to make your non-existent arches feel right at home.

    amazon.com

    These running sneakers have a padded tongue, which says GOODBYE to uncomfortable chafing.

    Promising review: "Wow! All I can say is that these are one of the best pairs of sneakers I've ever had. I have flat feet and bought them for the extra support, and it feels great wearing them! It did take a few times to break them in because my foot wasn't used to the extra support, but now they feel very comfortable. As someone who has broken the same foot a couple of times over the years and has had plantar fasciitis, I won't hesitate to pay a little extra for supportive footwear that still allows me to be athletic. I had never heard of this brand until recently, but I will be buying more Hoka shoes in the future!" —Francine

    Price: $73.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in wide sizes and in 13 colors)

    12. Running shoes with a little extra width around the toe area, meaning your piggies won't feel like they're being suffocated and constricted when you wear these.

    amazon.com

    If you're debating on which size you should get, go a size up!

    Promising review: "I love these! They were stiff at first, but very cushioned — definitely a break-in shoe. I run about 15-20 miles a week and so far, they have been wonderful!" —L. Porter

    Price: $34.80+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in nine colors)

    13. Gel-cushioned running shoes perfect for night runs (you brave, motivated person). These have reflective materials that increase visibility.

    These sneakers also have a removable sockliner, a high abrasion outsole, and a gel cushioning system that is great for your knees!

    Price: $44.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in wide sizes and in 20 colors)

    14. Dual-density foam running shoes that have rubber pods at the toe and heel giving them fantastic traction for both treadmill and trail.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are the most comfortable running shoes I’ve ever owned! I jog on the treadmill for about 40-75 minutes a day and these are great! They're super cute, fit perfectly, and don't need to use inserts to support my arches. Plus, they're lightweight and don't need to be broken in." —Deb H.

I did eight miles in these last weekend and the support was fantastic! The shoe itself didn't even need to be broken in. My feet felt great afterwards!" —Cindy
