Karhu Racer Fulcrum Ride — ($115)

2010 Summer Shoe Guide Homepage

An unusual but very welcome exception to the rule governing most racing shoes, the Racer has a rather roomy upper that our test team deemed wide enough for runners with bigger feet who still want a lightweight flat. The upper mesh is open for breathability and flexible enough to make this one of the least likely candidates for blisters of all the shoes tested. The neutral midsole offers enough cushioning for longer races and resists compression and a flowing stride. karhu.com
