Bolt evoSPEED Runner
This new trainer displays the Jamaican flag on the laces, a nod to sprinter Usain Bolt, whose name is on the heel. The evoFOAM in the midsole keeps the shoe light, and multi-flex construction allows the foot to move naturally through space.
$100, puma.com
New Balance MX997
PROBANK technology in the front of the shoe supports side-to-side cutting movements, great for athletes who have to change direction. But even for straight ahead running, you'll appreciate the REVlite midsole, offering a lightweight ride and plenty of cushioning.
$90, shopnewbalance.com
adizero Feather 2
The first adizero Feather was the lightest running shoe ever, and the Feather 2 carries on the tradition, weighing in at
just 6.7 ounces. SprintWeb tech provides stability, and the Feather 2 is micoach compatible.
$115, adidas.com
Nike Free 3.0
Nike invested eight years of biomechanics research to come up with this extremely flexible and lightweight shoe. The Free 3.0 feels more like a sock with a rubber sole than a sneaker, allowing the foot to move like it's not strapped inside something.
$100, nike.com
Under Armour Charge RC Storm
This shoe uses lots of materials, all of which have performance benefits. The 4D Foam sockliner conforms to the shape of your foot; the two-piece upper allows it to flex naturally; and the entire shoe is water resistant, thanks to UA's HeatGear fabric.
$120, underarmour.com
K-Swiss Blade-Max Stable
Get your Kenny Powers on with supportive Seamfree welded upper construction, which makes the sneaker light, and GuideGlide design in the midsole, which helps your foot strike the ground properly.
$125, kswiss.com
Reebok RealFlex Transition
RealFlex technology in the sole employs 62 sensors, which adapt to every kind of surface when you train or compete. The Transition is also incredibly light, and flex grooves in the forefoot enhance flexibility.
$100, reebok.com
adidas ClimaCool Seduction
adidas claims its ClimaCool technology can help cut the in-shoe temperature by 20 percent and reduce sweating by 50 percent. Look closely: even the bottom of the sneaker has vents.
