The ideal running shoes for pre-season training

We all know that pre-season training consist of lots…and lots….of running! The team at Jobs in Football has compiled its top five running shoes to ensure stability, peak performance and comfort during these key months:

  1. ASICS - GT 2000 5

 Awarded ‘Best Buy Summer 2017’ by Runner’s World, the GT 2000 5 is a good long run shoe. Testers said it provided all-around good support and was comfortable for pounding out the miles.


  1. Nike – Zoom Fly

 From world-class marathoners to those who just want to log their best miles on the weekends, the Nike Zoom range has a best-fit shoe for all. Hot off the heels of the global phenomenon that was Breaking2, Nike’s attempt to enable the first sub-two-hour marathon, the Zoom range has been under the watchful eye of keen runners. With the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% built for experienced marathoners, the Nike Zoom Fly is durable for training and one of Nikes fastest everyday shoes.


  1. Adidas – Supernova

 This road shoe is perfect for pounding the pavement. Recently updated, the Adidas lab has added even more Boost in the heel for a bouncier feeling. Although a heavier shoe, reviews of the trainer were unanimous in that Adidas’s ‘Boost’ underfoot foam was thought to be one of the most responsive.


  1. Brooks – Ravenna 8

 This shoe is known for handling both long runs and tempo runs with ease. Recently updated, the Ravenna 8 has a softer ride and springier toe-off, and an X-shaped patch of rubber in the midfoot smooths the gap between the heel and forefoot.


  1. Saucony – Ride 10

 This moderate-weight running shoe offers enough flexibility for all-round use, whether it’s a fast 5k or a longer run. The mesh forefront allows the foot to swell during harder training runs.
