Zoot Ultra Kalani–($140)

The word that comes to mind when you slip on these lightweight, neutral training shoes is “sock-like.” Thanks to a supple and stretchy seamless upper, the Kalani can be worn sockless; and it hugs the foot well enough and yet without constriction, making the laces almost seem superfluous. Our test team found the forefoot fit on the narrow side and enjoyed the high-mileage comfort and lightweight performance enough that they recommended the Kalani as a possible racer for efficient runners.

Tester’s Take: “The sock-like upper made them feel more like an extension of my foot than a shoe.”
