New Balance FuelCell Rebel v4

Lightweight for up-tempo runs, but with enough protection for daily milage, the New Balance FuelCell Rebel v4 features the speed of a PEBA blend FuelCell midsole in a shoe that weighs less than 200g. A widened platform improves stability, while the outsole coverage uses highly durable Ndurance rubber tuned for increased stiffness at the forefoot without the need for a plate.

Saucony Endorphin Speed 4

The fourth iteration of this storied shoe utilises the pelleted peba based midsole PWRRUN PB and Saucony’s trademark speed roll technology for a soft and unbelievably smooth ride. Pair this with a winged nylon plate and you have the rigidity to stabilise the PWRRUN PB midsole but with enough flexibility to make the Endorphin Speed 4 perfectly pleasant at more leisurely paces.

Nike Zoom Fly 5

A max stack of ZoomX peba foam, the same foam used in their race day shoes, and a full-length articulated plate, give the Max Fly serious speed designed to be used anywhere from weekend training sessions up to race day, making it ideal for Tempo training. The lightweight breathable upper features an integrated webbing that wraps the forefoot for a secure feel that lets you push further in comfort.

adidas adizero adios 8

A classic for the ages. The adios line up has a storied heritage including numerous world records in the marathon. With a midsole make up of Lightstrike 2.0 and Lightstrike PRO, TorsionRODS which takes the place of a carbon plate or energy rods, and continental rubber outsole, the adidas adizero adios 8 is a purists dream for speed sessions and tempos.

Mizuno Wave Rebellion Flash 2

Updated to use the softer and faster Enerzy Lite + midsole foam, combined with a full-length plate, the Rebellion Flash has a powerful engine room to start with, but by adding in Smooth Speed Assist, essentially a shaped heel and cut outs through the centre of the midsole, you find a combination of forward sensation, stability, and a buttery smooth transition from landing to toe off. Add in a lightweight heel counter, internal support straps and a full rubber outsole, and you get a super-fast shoe that can last the miles of training.

On Cloudflow 4

Using dual density foams, a spoon shaped speed board, and of course, On’s famous Cloudtec cushioning, you get a unique sensation under foot from a shoe that is designed to give you lightweight energy return. A sleek, ultra-lightweight and breathable upper helps give that sensation of speed even as you lace up.

HOKA Mach 6

Unusual in this list as it doesn’t feature a plate of any kind, the Mach 6 instead focuses on lightweight cushioning, something Hoka have always been famous for. A stripped back upper features a solid lock in feel, while the upgraded super critical EVA midsole and early-stage meta-rocker work together to give you a bouncy feel, energetic and smooth ride.

adidas adizero Boston 12

Designed to be the shoe that gets you record speeds, even if you aren’t wearing them at the time, this speedy training shoe is where you put in all the hard miles and tempo sessions that pay off later. Like the Adios 8 it features Lightstrike 2.0 and Lightstrike Pro foams, but here the stack is 10mm deeper. It also shares a replacement for a standard plate through the middle, this time the EnergyRods 2.0 that are found in the race day shoes and follow the structure of your feet for a personalised spring.
