Choose the Best Running Shoes Every Time


Discount Running Shoes

Finding discount running shoes does not mean that you have to settle for low quality shoes. Why not? Once the new year’s shoe models come out, last year’s running shoes are discounted by around $20 – $30 dollars because they aren’t being made any more.

There’s nothing wrong with the shoes.

In fact, many of them won awards as being the best running shoes when they were released.

Lucky for you and me, there are a ton of these last year’s shoes that still sit on running shoe retailers shelves for quite a while. That’s how to find your discount running shoes without sacrificing the quality of shoe.

On our site, we have price comparisons of many running shoes, so every time you view one of our shoe review pages, you will find the lowest price, but also see the other prices that weren’t the lowest, so you can be certain you are getting a good deal on some high quality discount running shoes.

Below we recommend a few different shoes in each general running shoe category that corresponds to the running mechanics that shoe companies classify runners into. If you aren’t sure what kind of foot type or running mechanics you have, and don’t know if you need a Neutral, Stability, or Motion Control running shoe, we have created this article just for you: Determine your running mechanics

Otherwise, take a look at some very highly rated running shoes from last year that can now be considered discount running shoes ONLY because new models are out for this year. Grab them while they are still on the shelves!!!

Discount Neutral/Cushioned Running Shoes

1. Asics Gel Nimbus 12

The Asics Gel Nimbus 12 is the top of the line and best selling neutral/cushioned running shoe that Asics offers. Not only is it one of the most popular shoes that Asics offers, it was also awarded the Best Update from Runners World in the Summer 2010 Shoe Guide.

The Nimbus 12 includes offset lacing and a weight reduction from last year's shoe. I would recommended the Asics Gel Nimbus 12 for runners with normal to high arches looking for a neutral/cushioned shoe with a bit of added stability.

2. Brooks Ghost 5

Editor’s Choice Award from Runners World. Full-length dynamic cushioning. Lightweight and versatile. It’s all becoming standard for the Brooks Ghost series, which is a neutral running shoe tailored to the needs of high-arched neutral runners.

Discount Stability Running Shoes

1. Asics GEL-Kayano 19

The Asics GEL-Kayano 19 shed a lot of weight for this latest version, bringing it back down to earth with other crazy cushioned stability running shoes.

2. Brooks Adrenaline GTS 13

The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 13 restored the pride in the Adrenaline GTS line by returning to it's successful past and posting a win of Editor's Choice in Runners World.

3. Asics GT-2000

The Asics GT-2000, which is the new numbering for the Asics GT-2170 series, kept with the tradition of the lightweight stability trainer series, which has been a pretty solid shoe.

Discount Motion Control Running Shoes

1. Brooks Addiction 9

The Brooks Addiction 9 is one of the most pouplar motion control running shoes on the market to help support you low arched, overpronators out there. Even though the shoe has tons of stability and motion control features, you will find that cushioning wasn't sacrificed.
