Best running shoe brands – newest 2014 list
1. ASICS running shoes
ASICS is founded in 1949 in Japan by Mr.KihachiroOnitsuka. The company initially produces basketball shoes for Japanese basketball stars. But by far, they gained more success with running shoes. Their first winning was when an Ethiopia runner won a gold medal at 1960 Olympics wearing a Tiger, a well-known name of ASICS shoes at that time.
Today, ASICS provides top quality shoes for almost all of the sports, including running, walking, basketball, football, tennis, racing, cricket, cross training and more. ASICS is not the biggest brand, but ASICS running shoes have the best ratings in many different aspects.
2. MIZUNO running shoes
Mizuno shoes made the first sale in 1983, relatively young in comparison with other manufacturers. But Mizuno group is aged. They have over 100 years of history and covers a huge range of sport equipment and technology, including baseball, golf, running, football, volleyball, trekking, rugby, table tennis, handball, judo and more.
“MIZUNO Running Series” has been sponsoring international tournaments organized in many countries such as Japan, Spain and Netherlands. Wave Rider is the first model that represents MIZUNO’s innovation shoes technology – MIZUNO Wave. Today, the latest 16th model of Wave Rider is released and quickly dominates worldwide markets.
3. SAUCONY running shoes
I just found a fact that most of famous shoe brands is aged. When completed the surveys about best rated shoe brands and pick out 5 brands to review, I noticed that all of them are around 100 years old. Wahaa! Saucony is the oldest brands in this list. They started their mission to bring us inspiration, knowledge and products since 1890s.
Currently, Saucony provides a wide range of running shoes and running apparels for all genders and ages
4. BROOKS running shoes
This year 2014, BROOKS celebrates 100 years of being in the running equipment business. They are not only supporting runners, they are runners. Being a running company makes BROOKS understand deeply about what runners need and how to meet that needs.
Their portfolio is similar to Saucony, with all the products related to the run. They have many award winning shoes of many famous channels such as Runner’s World. The most popular BROOKS shoe series for women is the Adrenaline GTS.
5. NIKE running shoes – This is Best running shoe brand that I like
Compared with 4 below brands, NIKE is a young man. But NIKE is the best distributing company. Until now, they have operated in more than 160 countries, from biggest countries to the small, poor countries. That is what I like from NIKE. They can provide from top quality, luxury sport equipment to the good but affordable items.
You can check out the two great running shoe models, NIKE Air Max 2012 and 2013, which have the excellent ratings from customers in our site.
