5 Best Running Shoes For Summer

While our heart is in fashion, we like to keep our heart healthy with a regular exercise routine. Back in March we recommended five athletic shoes to get your heart racing in time for spring. Now we’ve selected five running shoes to keep your momentum going! Whether you’re experienced or just starting out, maintaining your target heart rate never looked—or felt—so good!


Saucony Guide 10

Featuring pops of trendy teal and coral, Saucony’s Guide 10 gets a ten out of ten for style. And with a breathable mesh and synthetic upper, FlexFilm no-sew overlays, and RUNDRY moisture-wicking collar lining, this is the perfect lightweight running shoe for those who prefer to run under the summer sun. It’s padded with performance features like EVERUN Topsole technology, added midfoot structure, and a refined TRI-Flex outsole design, so you’ll be moving ahead in comfort for as long as you need.


New Balance Fashion Speed Ride

In a playful pink and a sleek silhouette, the stylish look of New Balance’s Fashion Speed Ride already has us racing to get out on the city’s running trails. The synthetic mesh upper helps keep your feet cool, while the removable Response 2.0 insole and REVlite midsole keep every stride perfectly cushioned. We especially love this style’s rubber sole—it features a stabilizing T-Beam shank!


Asics Gel- Nimbus 19

Is it any surprise that Asics’ made our list? From an athletic brand known and loved by athletes of all stripes, the Gel-Nimbus 19 is part of Asics’ legendary Nimbus® series and comes in a variety of fun colors. Among its many performance features is a jacquard mesh upper that tightens and loosens in key areas to allow movement and breathability during your run. And as if you didn’t need any more reason to love this style, the Gel-Nimbus 19 is accepted by the American Podiatric Medical Association.


Adidas Edge RC

From another household name brand, Adidas’ Edge RC made the style cut with the sleek silhouette of its synthetic mesh upper, which also has supportive mesh sidewall overlays. We especially appreciate this style’s BOUNCE™ midsole for its comfort and responsive cushioning while running. An added bonus? The durable ADIWEAR™ rubber outsole gives you extra mileage.


Under Armour Speedform Gemini 3

Going the distance is easier with Under Armour’s Speedform Gemini 3. Designed for long-distance running, its features include ArchForm technology, Dual-layer Charged Cushioning®, and a sole with strategically-placed blown rubber pads. Available in so many color options, we can’t wait to pair this style with our warmer athleisure-wear as we move into fall!
