  • ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 20
    2 / 4 ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 20

    This shoe is the perfect, no-frills performance tool for a serious runner. A new upper is designed into the shoe, and together with the company’s Gradient Mesh technology, provides runners with more room in the toe area, in addition to providing additional support through the midfoot. What this means for you is that the fluidity will adapt to your feet’s sizes, and a strategic overlay wraps and supports your foot throughout your run. The midsole is made from Asics’ FlyteFoam and SpevaFoam material, which gives you a more cushioned ride, all in a lightweight packaging.

    $259, available at ASICS retail stores.

    3 / 4 UNDER ARMOUR UA CHARGED BANDIT 3

    Clocking all the mileage for your marathon trainings will be a breeze with the official running shoe for StanChart Marathon 2017. Redesigned with a fresh new look, the Charged Bandit promises to give you great fit, comfort and performance whilst you are doing long-distance running. An important feature which your feet will thank you for is the threadbone upper and external heel counter. It helps to stabilize the foot upon impact, something that is especially important whilst you are pounding on those pavements. Also, the fact that the shoe has a fully charged midsole makes each of your strides smoother, softer and more responsive than the previous ones.

    $199, available at all Under Armour brand houses.
