Your Running Shoe Type Matters

Blast off like a missile in running shoes that feel like they were made just for you. Whether you're a newbie jogger training for your first 5K or a seasoned marathoner looking ahead to the next bucket list race, the ideal pair of running shoes can help avoid bonking, stay on pace and coordinate with your go-to gear for the runner.

Don’t let the terrain set the pace - go the distance with shoes that provide a solid foundation from toe-off to landing.

The Best Running Shoes for Different Runners

Add some bounce to your step with a pair of adidas™ Men's Galaxy 5 Running Shoes that uses cushioned Cloudfoam midsoles to propel you forward or the Nike Women's Air Zoom Pegasus 38 Running Shoes with Nike™ React foam cushioning  and Air Zoom units that boost rebound.

Break away from the pack with a pair of flexible, low-profile shoes, such as the ASICS Women's NOVABLAST Running Shoes with FLYTEFOAM BLAST midsoles and the Brooks Women's Glycerin 19 Running Shoes with OrthoLite® sockliners create premium step-in comfort.

Looking for a pair of versatile trail running shoes with some style points? The New Balance Men's Nitrel v4 Trail Running Shoes combine the same responsive cushioning you crave with all-terrain outsoles for improved traction.

Explore trail running shoes for the road less traveled, training shoes for the treadmill as well as jogging and power-walking shoes meant for hitting the pavement. Academy Sports + Outdoors offers a wide selection of performance gear from Nike™, ASICS®, Brooks, Saucony™, adidas™ and other top brands at a great value. From running clothing to shoes and accessories, you'll find a broad selection tailored to runners for every level.

What Type Of Running Shoes Do I Need?

Expert tip:
The shoes you choose depend on the terrain you take and should meet the challenges of your environment.

  • Trail Running Shoes: Lugged outsoles and aggressive tread patterns deliver tough traction on loose, slippery surfaces, while stabilizing and protective features guard against injury on uneven terrain filled with hidden sticks and rocks.
  • Cross-Training Shoes: Minimalist designs and multidirectional traction patterns work well for indoor and outdoor training spaces and support a wide variety of movements from light jogs on the treadmill to hard-hitting agility workouts.

Next, find the fit that suits your distinct foot mechanics. Most runners tend to do well with neutral shoes, such as the Brooks Women's Adrenaline GTS 21 Running Shoes, while others need a little extra guidance to help keep their gait on track.

Prevent excessive inward foot roll (overpronation) or outward foot roll (supination) from affecting your stride and causing discomfort. Supportive styles like the Brooks Men's Adrenaline GTS 21 Running Shoes promote smooth transitions from head to toe. Examining the wear on the tread of your current pair of kicks will help indicate where your feet fall.
