The ACTIVE Spring Running Shoe Guide

With spring training and road racing season just around the corner, now is the time to invest in a new pair of shoes. This year, we brought testers in from our local running community, including veteran runners here at ACTIVE and members of the Dallas Running Club, to try the 15 shoes in this guide. More than 150 people tested these shoes and put them through a minimum of 15 running miles while paying attention to comfort, fit, weight, breathability, flexibility and ride.

What did we find? Updates of old favorites, like the Brooks Ravenna 9 and the Saucony Kinvara 9, had our feet singing. Plus, five new releases from Nike, Saucony, Under Armour, Altra and Hoka will ensure you'll find something to motivate your miles well into summer.
