Best in test: road shoes

Read Time:   |  February 13, 2020

Road shoes are the workhorses of our running wardrobe: it’s essential to choose carefully, as you’re going to be in them a lot! These road shoes have been tested by real runners: passionate women with diverse running experiences, from dedicated marathoners to happy plodders. Our group testers have run in the shoes our their usual runs to see if they go the distance. They give each piece of kit a star rating.


Altra Torin 3.5

These shoes fit perfectly for long runs, due to the breathable mesh upper which keeps your feet cool, while the ingenious foot shape toe box enables toes to relax and spread out naturally. It has a zero- drop platform that places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage proper, low-impact form throughout your run, and it cleverly customises to the foot for a bespoke fit.
