Mizuno Wave Rider 15, $115

men: 10.6 oz. | women: 8.7 oz.

The Wave Rider 15 features flex controllers on the forefoot outsole that improve efficiency just before toe-off, and midsole technology that helps provide a forgiving landing. These shoes provide the smooth ride and the cushioning runners have come to expect from the Rider series, but this upgrade isn’t as roomy in the toebox—wide-footed runners might experience rubbing with extended use.
