    1. Asics Gel Venture sneakers that have a built-in cushion to keep you feeling supported at all times. They also come in a ton of fun colors so you better believe your workout style will remain on point.,

    A few years ago I broke my foot and found I needed major support from my sneakers, not just for working out but for everyday use. I bought my first pair of Asics and never looked back. They are cushioned, comfortable, and exactly what you'd want in a sneaker — and over 3.7K Amazon customers agree!

    Promising review: "I love these shoes! I am hard to please due to plantar fasciitis, fallen arches, and lots of screws in my ankle. Great arch support and really beautifully designed shoe. The photo doesn't do them justice. They make me happy looking at them and wearing them. I only wear them to work out and they feel great! Great price too!!" —T. Discosola

    Get them from Amazon: women's sizes for $59.95+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in 10 styles) or men's sizes for $54.50+ (available in sizes 6–15 and in 16 styles)

    2. Under Armour HOVR Infinite Running Shoes were developed for runners who needed flexibility, cushioning, and versatility. They have a zero gravity feel to them that'll make you want to run for DAYS.

    Under Armour

    These shoes can also be connected to the Under Armour Run app. They have Record Sensor technology built in that'll track, analyze, and store your running metrics.

    Promising review: "I purchased online — sizing was perfect. I love that these shoes are wider than your average performance runner, so no more sore feet after long periods of wear. Excellent for any sort of training. I mainly run and find they give extra support and extra spring around the base and heel of your feet. The toe area feels funny at first as they feel like you have shoe sole underfoot but you get use to it after a couple of wears. Easily connects to your Under Armour Run app. Overall I give these shoes 10/10." —Tammy75

    Get them from Under Armour: women's and (left, available in sizes 5–11 and seven styles) men's (right, available in sizes 7–15 and eight styles) for $120.

    3. Nike Revolution 4 Running Shoes feature a mesh upper for optimal breathability and a soft foam midsole for lightweight cushioning. You can say "adios!" to your old pair of torn-up Nikes., Amazon

    Promising review: "I’m an avid runner and after having given some other shoe brands a shot, I’m sticking with Nike. You can’t beat how soft and comfortable they are, the springiness of them where you actually ~feel~ faster, and the stylishness of them. Also bonus points because the check mark logo is so simple and minimalist. I hate shoes with big clunky logos on them. I was using another brand of running shoes until my recent purchase of these fabulous gray Nikes, and my feet and knees had started to hurt a little bit. I thought it was just me, that I was wearing myself out or something, but it was the poor quality and uneven footing of that other shoe. After a few runs with these Nikes, that pain and soreness from my feet and knees is gone. Thank you, Nike! I’ll be back here for my next pair of running shoes!" —JimS

    Get them from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in men's sizes 6–15, regular and wide widths, and 12 styles).

    4. Brooks Ghost 11 shoes you'll love thanks to their plush tongue and collar, and their supportive arches. Get ready to take your running to the ~next level~.


    Promising review: "These are the most comfortable sneakers I have ever owned. I have bunions and very few shoes feel comfortable, but these do! Lots of toe room and very cushiony inside. They run small so I listened to the reviews and went up a half size to a 7.5. I usually wear a 7 in most shoes. I needed a comfortable shoe for walking and jogging and these are definitely it! Finally after trying several other brands, I found the right fit! Very happy customer!" —Anonymous

    Get it from Zappos for $99.95 (available in women's sizes 5–12, in narrow, medium, or wide widths, and five styles).

    5. Soft knit sneakers from Hush Puppies you can wear to run on the treadmill or run errands — they're that versatile! They're made with a dry mesh sock lining to prevent sweating and odor.

    Hush Puppies

    I've become a big fan of Hush Puppies since sustaining another foot injury this year. Their shoes are super supportive and lightweight. I'd wear these every single day if I could!

    Get them from Hush Puppies for $109.95 (available in women's sizes 5.5–12, medium and wide widths, and three styles).

    6. Or Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoe that'll leave your feet feeling ~heavenly~ after each mile. You can slip right into these without even wasting time fumbling with laces!,

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these running shoes. They are extremely lightweight, feels like you are running on air yet with support. Super cute, look exactly as pictured and are true to size. I always wear a 6 and the 6 fit me perfectly. I would order these 100 times over, actually contemplating getting another pair in a different color just because these are so perfect. I’ve had them for over two months and they have not worn out at all. Wipes clean and doesn’t stain which is amazing!! I regularly run outside so I destroy my running shoes, these I’ve just taken a wet paper towel to and they are good as new! Sooo so happy with this purchase!" —Kat

    Get them from Amazon for $42.95+ (available in women's sizes 5–11 and 25 styles).

    7. Kuru's Atom sneakers you'll love so much you'll want to tell all of your workout buddies about them. They're a versatile staple shoe made with a heel-hugging sole that'll provide you with support you didn't even know you needed.


    I also have these sneakers (in the cute cabernet color!) and am a big fan. I'm slowly getting back into running and have been relying on these sneakers to get me through it. They don't feel or look clunky, making them a great shoe for wearing to the gym and then for the rest of the day.

    Promising review: "I have heel spurs and have had plantar fasciitis. Also have a torn foot tendon and hip problems. I was hoping these shoes might be an answer so I could enjoy walking again. And YES...they are. So super comfortable and stylish too. Thank you. I'm glad I took a chance and ordered them. Great customer service too." —Harpgal

    Get them from Kuru for $120 (available in women's sizes 6.5–11 and three styles).

    Get them from Amazon for $19.29+ (available in women's sizes 5–12, in regular and wide widths, and 36 styles).

    9. Micro G Pursuit running shoes from Under Armour will make you sweat just from admiring their beauty. They have a built-in sock liner and foam padding around the ankle and under the tongue for comfort and extended arch support. AND the pattern was inspired by a tire — talk about reliable traction.

    Under Armour

    Promising review: "Had shoe for a month, and showing little to no wear, very comfy, great for running and gym. Probably a bit lightweight for court sports (but still did the job for three sets of tennis). Very happy with my purchase." —Ads27

    Get them from Under Armour for $70 (available in women's sizes 6–12 and three styles).

    10. Brooks Adrenaline GTS 19 sneaks that'll quickly become your go-to pair for outdoor running. You're gonna love their supportive cushioning and durability.


    You can find me buying a pair of the lavender and gray ones faster than Forrest Gump running from state to state.

    Promising review: "I've been wearing these shoes for over a decade now. For me they run exactly a half size smaller than my standard everyday shoes. They are a supportive running shoe that corrects over-pronation while still being a lighter shoe that provides a good amount of bounce. I've worn these for races, treadmill runs, trail running, and pavement running and still love them. They are a great all around shoe." —Anne

    Get them from Zappos for $129.95 (available in women's sizes 5–13, in narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide widths, and 14 styles).

    11. Or New Balance Nitrel v1 FuelCore Trail running shoes you can pick up in a vibrant color to spice up your run and amp up your style. You'll also fall for the lightweight yet protective materials that make up this shoe.


    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I don't know why I strayed away from New Balance because they end up always being my favorite running shoes! These are perfect for treadmill running or outdoor running. Light, but not too light, comfy, great traction. I keep these for running only, they didn't work well for workout videos at home on carpet." —mandy

    Get them from Amazon for $22.72+ (available in women's sizes 5–12, in normal and wide widths, and 11 styles).

    12. Adidas Terrex Two Parley sneakers that'll look so chic with that fancy new sports bra you just picked up. They have a foot-hugging knit upper made with yarn spun from plastic — yep, they're even cooler than they seem at first glance.


    My sister has a pair of these beauties and they've become her favorite running shoes. They're SO lightweight and really soft. We were both so impressed by the fact they're made with yarn that has been created from recycled waste. Truly a spectacular and functional pair of sneakers.

    Get them from Adidas for $125 (available in women's sizes 5–11 and in black or white).

    13. JOOMRA minimalist sneakers you'll be amazed by because they'll literally wrap perfectly around your feet. They also come with removable insoles so you can create the perfect amount of pressure and support of your arches.,

    Promising review: "This winter, I’ve been jogging while barefoot inside my house, but noticed I was having ankle pain at night. I didn’t want to wear typical sneakers indoors, so I thought I’d look for 'barefoot' sneakers to only wear indoors. I’ve never worn minimalist sneakers before and wasn’t sure what to expect; but happily, were comfortable right out of the box! I immediately jogged for 30 minutes with them, and they stayed comfortable throughout — no chafing or blisters or discomfort. Most importantly, I have had no post-running ankle pain! They offer enough cushioning and support to make a difference. They even have a little arch support, which I appreciate. It’s a surprisingly great little sneaker at such a reasonable price point." —RC

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in women's sizes 6–11 and 17 styles).

    14. Supportive Ryka running shoes you can seamlessly swap your raggedy old sneakers out for. They feature a breathable mesh and leather upper, a super soft inner lining, and a price that can't be beat. Sign me UP.

    Ryka / Via, Amazon

    Promising review: "The fit is perfect, allowing adequate room in the toe box without being too big around the heel. I am a physical therapist and have also had multiple foot surgeries and am very particular about foot wear. I would definitely recommend them." —JessiesMom

    Get them from Ryka for $59.99 (available in women's sizes 6–11, in medium and wide widths, and three styles).

    15. Nike Downshifter 8 sneakers, in case you've been looking to add to your ever-growing athleisure wardrobe and need a timeless shoe that'll go with EVERYTHING.


    Promising review: "I love the Downshifter 7 and when I saw these I wanted to give them a try. They’re the perfect shoe for an Orangetheory workout. They’re light enough to run in and perfect for rowing. Oh, and they are also great in the weight room." —AL

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in women's sizes 5.5–12 and 10 styles).

    16. Hoka One running shoes that'll feel so comfortable from the moment you slip them on you might just be inspired to sign up for a marathon. Don't even get me started on the color schemes!


    Promising review: "I stopped wearing Hokas a few years ago, but came back after mixed luck with other running shoes. These Cliftons are roomy enough to wear thicker running socks and are so comfortable I don't pay attention to them while running. I'm looking forward to wearing them for longer mileage workouts!" —Janet

    Get them from Zappos for $104 (available in women's sizes 5–8, medium and wide widths, and seven styles).

    17. Or the Cohesion 10 Running Shoes from Saucony you'll fall for faster than Usain Bolt crossing a finish line. They're affordable, stable, and a must-have for anyone looking to upgrade their kicks.,

    With 1,818 positive reviews from Amazon customers, I'm convinced these are the shoes we've all been sleeping on.

    Promising review: "Saucony are the best and most durable running shoes out there. I love these and I cannot believe the price! They also make me about an inch taller! Don't let the price fool you. They absolutely live up to the Saucony name. These are fabulous!!! I have a difficult time with sneakers because I have a narrow heel and a wide forefoot. These are perfect! Thank you Saucony! You exceeded my expectations once again! The first pair I bought in 1994 got me all the way through basic training and then lasted several years beyond that! Seriously! I'm rough on shoes, but Sauconys last longer than any sneaker I've ever worn. They also help with my back and knee pain." —Aliblank

    Get them from Amazon for $27+ (available in women's sizes 5–11 and 13 styles).

    18. Asics Gel-Court Speed sneakers can support you through an intense running session but also look fantastic even if you're going to a chill walk.


    I have these shoes as well (wow, I may have a sneaker problem?). I recently purchased them for a trip to Walt Disney World after my foot doctor suggested ~mixing things up~ each day to support my healing torn tendon better. They were fantastic for all the walking I did during the trip and I have since used them to run at the gym. I have them in white so they also match almost any pair of workout leggings.

    Promising review: "These shoes are really cute, and are flattering on my big feet due to the two-tone color pattern. They are supportive and have good cushioning and the upper has a lot of mesh for breathability." —MMC

    Get them from Zappos for $99.95 (available in women's sizes 5–12 and four styles).

    19. And Saucony Ride ISO sneakers, so stunning you'll be inspired to actually get up before work and go for a run. You'll be racking up those miles in no time!


    Promising review: "I log easily about 20–30 miles a week, more if I've got a half marathon or other race scheduled. After multiple redesigns and discontinued models with Mizuno I simply could no longer find a shoe that fit well and felt great on my feet throughout the run. These shoes have made running a true joy again. My feet can do any distance no problem now — it's all a matter of how much cardio I'm feeling like that day. I'll be buying a second pair of these and I'll be looking into other Saucony models in the very near future." —Andrea Speedy Dube

    Get them from Amazon for $55.01+ (available in women's sizes 5–12, regular and wide widths, and 10 styles).

    Awesome! Now you and your fresh kicks can get back to your regularly scheduled workout! You're welcome ;)
