Skechers Go Run, $80
men: 6.9 oz. | women: 4.9 oz.
Targeted at heel strikers hoping to improve their strides, the high-impact rubber circular sensors and concave midsole encourage a natural midfoot strike and a springy, highly responsive transition. Like training wheels for less biomechanically efficient runners, these shoes provide a comfortable transition to a minimalist shoe. While the soft canvas material of the upper encases feet in retro comfort, the material lacks the durability found in most traditional shoes.
