Everyday Mileage Shoes

Everyday mileage running shoes provide comfort and support for daily training sessions, ensuring endurance and durability. These shoes are designed to withstand the wear and tear of frequent use, offering reliability and performance for your regular runs.

Tempo Running Shoes

Tempo running shoes are engineered for speed and agility, optimizing performance during high-intensity workouts. With lightweight construction and responsive cushioning, these shoes excel during your tempo runs, helping runners maintain pace and efficiency.

Race Day Shoes

Race day running shoes are crafted for maximum speed and efficiency, designed to propel you towards their personal bests. These lightweight and minimalist shoes prioritize agility and responsiveness, ensuring every stride counts on the big day.

Why Should You Have a Shoe Rotation?
Rotating running shoes can extend the life of each pair by allowing them to fully dry out and have foam rebound between runs, reducing wear and tear, and potentially lowering the risk of injury by changing the stress your body goes through when running in different models.

Hoka Challenger 7

With the seemingly impossible combination of increased stack height, and lower weight, the updated Hoka Challenger ATR 7 in Castlerock/Flame is a road focused, all terrain running shoe that lets you take the trail, and the pavement, equally in your stride.
The Hoka Challenger 7 has improved cushioning thanks to a larger layer of CMEVA under foot, which not only provides non-stop comfort, but helps to move you through your transition for a smooth stride.

The engineered mesh upper is reimagined with recycled content, for improved breathability as well as a comfortable, locked in fit.

An improved lug pattern in the outsole gives you a smoother ride across paved surfaces, without sacrificing traction across the trail. DURABRASION rubber extends longevity while ensuring multi surface grip.

Extra Cushioning

Featuring extra-deep stacks of midsole foam, extra-cushioned shoes offer improved impact absorption, comfort, and even performance. With modern foams providing energy return through your stride, the more foam under your foot, the bigger the spring forward. The trade-off of extra foam is additional weight and reduced ground feel. It can also be expensive to create and stabilise so much foam.

Neutral

Neutral running shoes are designed to provide a smooth sensation without correcting your gait. They allow your natural motion to flow, while still offering a snug fit and a cushioned feel underfoot. As such, they’re ideal for runners who don’t overpronate.

HOKA

Where others follow, HOKA lead. Originally intending to improve downhill traction and stability, HOKA discovered a formula for success across any terrain that has been replicated across many other brands. It also made this relative newcomer a big hitter in the running shoe market.

Start with a supremely cushioned midsole, offering marshmallow softness, shock absorption, comfort, and support at varying levels across the range. Then apply the Meta-Rocker. Designed to drive runners forward, this shaped underfoot geometry complements the natural gait cycle – by curving the shoe at the toe and heel, it ensures a smooth transition from impact to toe off. Lastly, the Active Foot Frame functions like a bucket seat in a car, cradling the heel and offering a secure feel across the foot.

The first thing you notice picking up a HOKA is how light they feel: despite the deep cushioned midsole, they have an almost weightless build. Combine that featherlight feel with the propulsive foam and forward geometry, and you get a sensation of pure speed. As HOKA would say, “Time to Fly”.

Off-Road Running

Take to the trails and leave the urban landscape behind in our off-road shoes.


Designed to offer traction across all kinds of terrain, from rocks and roots to mud and grass, they often feature small blunt spikes called “lugs” to dig into softer ground.


Many also feature improved protection in the upper, keeping loose rocks and branches at bay.

Best for Everyday Mileage

To cope with all the miles you run, shoes for everyday mileage are built to last.

Thicker rubber on the outsole withstands huge amounts of pavement pounding, and a thicker, more durable upper also helps to improve longevity.


The other priority is comfort, with soft materials around the entrance and midsole foams designed to cushion, feel great, and last.

 

Because of the extra protection, daily mileage shoes tend to be heavier than their race day and tempo counterparts.
