3 Top-Rated Running Shoes To Consider For Upcoming Warm Weather Runs


After a year long January and February, we are finally limping into March, albeit pale and Vitamin D deficient. Days are getting longer and temperatures are beginning to rise, giving birth to a newfound desire to get active. If you’re like me, the seasonal depression has killed and buried any motivation I may have to get serious about my physical well-being beneath the rolls of winter fat.

But, I’m starting to remember how good I feel after a nice long run in nature’s kindest atmosphere and I found myself researching the best running shoes on the market to give myself some added motivation. I’ve listed three offerings below for you to consider purchasing if you’re looking to revamp your fitness life.

New Balance Fresh Foam LAZR Sport

New Balance

These puppies are the ones I’m most excited about. With running shoe prices nowadays ascending into the triple digits, the LAZR Sports provide the comfort and stability we’ve grown to expect from New Balance products at a price that won’t cripple us.

The LAZR Sport implements New Balance’s first ever laser engraved Fresh Foam midsole, which  achieves maximum comfort by creating deeper flex grooves throughout the midsole than traditional manufacturing is capable of. The silhouette features a 2-way stretch flat knit for a sock like feel and a bootie construction, which lets you slip in and out of the shoes super easily.

They are available on March 1 for the price of $89.95. Head to the New Balance website to check them out.

Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 6


Rated very highly on popular running website RunRepeat, the Adizero Boston Boost 6’s are lightweight and comfortable and provide versatility as a trainer and as a racing shoe. One reviewer of the shoe claims that the rubber on the sole of the Boston is very grippy, allowing it to perform well in all surfaces and conditions. Another described it as “the consummate 10K to marathon racing shoe.”

New Balance 910v4

New Balance

Voted By Runner’s World as one of the Best Running Shoes of 2017, the New Balance 910v4s provide a thick midsole that offers a stable platform and a protective plate wedged between the foam and rubber that prohibits any unwelcome objects from poking through. The soles of the shoes are designed to shed mud or dirt, making this shoe perfect for trail runs.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
