By Martin Schneider, dealnews contributorThe summer poses a number of challenges to runners (the winter ain’t so easy either), but now that it’s autumn, more and more folks are hitting the pavement. If you’re one of them, it’s smart to check on the condition of your current footwear. If those sneakers are looking a little worn in the heels, toes, or midsoles, you should definitely seek out a new pair of kicks. To make that easier than a 4-minute mile, we’ve rounded up the best running shoes of the week for you to compare.
New Balance Men’s Minimus Trail Barefoot Trainers
Vendor: Botach via eBay
Price: $59.99 with free shipping
Lowest By:$15 Is It Worth It?: Taking a different approach on running shoes, these New Balance Minimus barefoot trainers are designed to mimic a natural gait. The drop from heel to toe is 4mm, which is far less than the older, maximum-cushioning style. These are available in most sizes from 7 to 12.
Men’s Liquidation Shoes Sale
Vendor: Running Warehouse
Discount: Up to 50% off in-cart with an extra 15% off via coupon code “FB15D”
Shipping: Free shipping
Is It Worth It?: We can’t hear the phrase “men’s liquidation shoes” without thinking of concrete shoes, as in how a mobster would whack a snitch and throwing him in the ocean. However, we’re pretty sure that Running Warehouse doesn’t mean that when they say they’re cutting up to 50% off men’s liquidation shoes in-cart with an extra 15% off via coupon code “FB15D”. Make sure you check out the Asics Men’s Gel Blur33 Shoes in Black/Platinum/Maui Blue (pictured) for $50.90; the Personal Heel Fit (PHF) system uses a 2-layer memory foam lining to provide an individualized fit, and the ComforDry sockliner does the anti-bacterial thing to prevent your shoes from becoming stinky. They’re available in most sizes from 8 to 13.
Nike Clearance Sale
Discount: Up to 60% off
Shipping:$8 s&h Is It Worth It?: Nike’s continues to cut up to 60% off select apparel, footwear, and more during its Clearance Sale. Check out the Nike Men’s LunarEclipse+ 2 Running Shoes (pictured) for $80.97 — judging from the glowing user reviews (4.5/5), they are incredibly comfortable and provide outstanding dynamic support. And if you aren’t into these, there’ are lots more Nikes to choose from: just peruse our other favorite Nike clearance deals.
Nike Men’s LunarGlide+ 3 Running Shoes
Price: $49.50 with free shipping
Lowest By:$5 Is It Worth It?: Do you suffer from overpronation? If so, these Nike Men’s LunarGlide+ 3 running shoes in Anthracite/Black/Volt/Challenge Red (pictured) may be a good option for you. These running shoes have a firmer foam carrier and a modified, floating heel counter that moves with the foot for increased rearfoot stability. They just might improve your running experience. And for $49.50 — the best price we’ve seen for these shoes — they can be all yours. They’re available in sizes 6 to 15, but not all sizes.
Nike Men’s FREE 4.0 v2 Running Shoes
Vendor: Finish Line
Price: $66.48 via coupon code “FINISH5LINE” with $5.49 s&h
Lowest By: $13
Expires:September 30 Is It Worth It?: Yes, we know the word “FREE” is in the headline, but do not be deceived. These Nike Men’s FREE 4.0 v2 Running Shoes in Gym Red/Stealth (pictured), Charcoal/Chrome Yellow, Ultraviolet/Wolf Grey, or Anthracite/Green are terrific, but not THAT good — the after-coupon price is $66.48. We love the soft look of this model, and frankly we hope that all sneaker design heads in this direction. The minimalistic sockliner mimics the shape of the foot, and the new seamless, laser-perforated Nanoply upper and modified arch flex grooves are crazy comfortable. They’re available in sizes 8.0 to 13, but not in all size/color combinations.
