Blissfeel Women's Running Shoe
The Blissfeel from Lululemon are running shoes not just designed to be a responsive daily trainer, but a daily trainer built specifically for women—and they’re nearly $50 off this weekend. The running shoes are specifically designed with the biomechanics of womens' physiques and movement in mind.
With a high rebound and enough support to keep you moving without pain, the shoes have a no-nonsense build that makes it easy to choose them for most runs.
In her review of the Blissfeels, test editor Amanda Furrer said, "Because of their lightweight and moderate cushioning, I could go fast without wrecking my body."
Men's Fresh Foam X 860 V12 Running Shoe
New Balance's Fresh Foam X 860 V12 have become a mainstay model that provides the sort of reliable support and durability that the company has become known for. The rubber outsole has proven supreme longevity with Runner's World testers seeing little wear (if any) after 100 miles.
The running shoes have the classic New Balance foam which mixes softness on top with springiness on the ground for a stable, yet responsive shoe.
Right now you can buy the shoe for nearly 50% off the original listed price—that’s just over $70 for a pair of top-rated running shoes.
Zinal Trail Running Shoe
The Hoka Zinal has been a longtime favorite at Runner's World for its responsiveness on and off the trail. The trail runners are more than $30 off right now, and they just might help you PR. They’re built for fast-paced runs on lighter trails so you can burst your short distance times.
While the lugs help you dig in on dirt, the relatively shorter, less obtrusive design mixed with the overall lighter shoe design allows for easy movement on pavement.
Test editor Amanda Furrer described the shoes by saying, "Though the Zinal wouldn’t be our top pick for technical trails (i.e., fallen trees, gnarly roots, and creek crossings), it’s a speedster on softer surfaces."
React Infinity Run Flyknit 3 Men's Road Running Shoes
For marathons or daily training, the Nike React Infinity Run 3 is sturdy for the long haul and has the responsiveness to cut down your times. The React has thick foam named after the shoe itself that provides a noticeable spring without a lot of weight.
The Flyknit top also means there are tons of colors and design patterns to choose from, with multiple of those marked 30% off. Nike members can get an additional 20% off using the online code CAMPNIKE.
Cloud X Shift Running Sneakers
Quickly growing in popularity, On Running has produced several trendy and exciting running shoes including the Cloud X Shift. Equipped with the classic sole unique to the Cloud line of shoes, there is a shock absorption and return bounce that responds to your feet.
The shoes are also part of On's effort toward greater sustainability, made with polyester made from recycled material.

Men's Tree Flyers, Forage Tan

The new foam from the company is lighter than its previous option, and offers a lot more responsiveness. Additionally, the shoes only require 9.92 kilograms of carbon to create, making them one of the most sustainable options from the company.
Buy them now for over $70 off the original listed price.
Ghost 14 Women's Neutral Running Shoe
The Brooks Ghost 14, discounted by $40 today, has stood out as one of the softest and most sustainable shoes from the brand, part of the push from Brooks to become more environmentally conscious.
Part of the ever-popular Ghost line, which our editors recommend any chance they get, the 14s were the first from Brooks to be completely carbon neutral. The main materials of the shoe are either recycled or bio-based for a sustainable sneaker that still offers enough stability and cushioning to take out on runs relatively often.
Women's GT-1000 11 Running Shoes
The GT-1000 11 running shoes from Asics are reliably comfortable and affordable pair for any adventure. The shoes continue to serve as a cost-effective choice that still provides the cushioning and comfort needed for frequent jogs.
The support around the heel and the sock liner help absorb shock and keep your ankle stable as you run. The shoes are currently 33% off for a price tag under $70.
Men's Lone Peak 7 Trail Running Shoe
No matter the trail, the Altra Lone Peak 7 has been a favorite of the Runner's World team since its launch. Designed in the classic zero-drop style that Altra is known for, your feet should feel balanced and stable on any terrain.
With thicker, deeper, and more numerous lugs than previous models, you should be able to traverse on rocky or uneven ground with ease. The tackiness of the outsole also gives you stability on wet or slick surfaces.
The wide toebox is an Altra classic that adds to comfort, especially on trail runs, and you can buy it right now for 25% off the listed price.
