Everyone loves new running shoe day. Doesn’t matter if you really need new shoes, it’s just exciting to get your feet in something different. The only thing better than a brand new pair of shoes, however, is a new pair of shoes that you don’t have to pay full price for. Over the years, we’ve developed some pretty keen senses when it comes to tracking down deals, so we figured it’s about time we share our favorites with you. Here are the best running shoe deals you can get right now.
We’ve done our best to pick out savings from a few of the most popular retailers, but we’re going to stick to running shoes for this list. If you want some deals on clothing or gear, it’s best to head straight to Running Warehouse because you never know what’s going to show up. There’s also a chance that some of these deals will sell out before we have a chance to replace them. We’ll do what we can to swap them out quickly, but we haven’t figured out how to automate Brandon quite yet.
Anyway, let’s get to the savings.
As mentioned above, Running Warehouse is like a one-stop shop for the best running deals around. It’s not locked in with a single brand, so the team can bring you great savings no matter your preference. The best part is that Running Warehouse guarantees quick shipping, so you can usually have new shoes at your door in a matter of days. Right now, there’s a full slate to choose from since brands are finally emerging from their supply chain issues and blessing us with stacks of new models.
USE: Quick, low-stack tempo work. Also, reminiscing on what the Adidas Boston used to be.
WAS: $130 NOW: $89
USE: Speed work, daily miles — honestly, a little bit of everything. There’s a reason it was our daily trainer of 2021.
WAS: $130 NOW: $99
USE: Easy cruising, and probably a few hundred miles of walking once you’ve retired it from your running rotation.
WAS: $140 NOW: $110
Holabird Sports is a lot like Running Warehouse in that it’s not stuck with running shoe deals from just one brand. Instead, you can find unique options from brands like On and Diadora (when they’re on sale). There aren’t too many options at the moment, but it’s a great chance to save some cash if you’ve been eyeing one of the speedier shoes in the Skechers lineup. You might also find that you have better luck with some apparel and gear deals from Holabird Sports if you can’t find a good discount on running shoes.
USE: For faster runs with slightly more comfort than a traditional tempo shoe, can also be used as a lightweight daily trainer. Hyper Burst midsole is durable, bouncy, and still one of the best in the game.
WAS: $140 NOW: $84
USE: High-end fashion shoe that actually is a pretty great running shoe. Still pretty pricey, but we were surprised at how much we really enjoyed this shoe.
WAS: $320 NOW: $272 (After using code APL15 at checkout)
Now we’re getting into the specifics. Running Warehouse and Holabird Sports are great for a little bit of everything, but sometimes your best bet is to go straight to a brand itself. Right now, Nike is the perfect example. The arrival of the Alphafly Next% 2 means a few of the OG colorways are cut down to much friendlier prices. There are also some price differences between the men’s shoes and women’s shoes, which isn’t something we usually see.
USE: Absolutely crushing it on race day (and saving your legs in the process)
WAS: $130 NOW: $100-110
USE: It’s the workhorse with wings — a little bit of everything. Gives you everything you need and nothing that you don’t. Perfect for racking up tons of miles and picking up the pace when you need to.
WAS: $130 NOW: $105 (Men’s only)
Adidas is like Nike in that it’s your best bet if you’re trying to live that Three Stripes lifestyle. There’s plenty to choose from, with somewhere in the neighborhood of 80-100 items on sale for both men and women, and that’s only counting shoes. You’re getting the same options on both sides for the most part, though the Takumi Sen 8 mentioned below only comes in men’s sizing. If you’re lucky, you might also be able to stack the savings with a promo code.
USE: A once-loved daily trainer that’s now best for everyday life — it’s stylish, just not the winner it used to be (though some say it breaks in around 50 miles). Either way, it looks great on the foot and we often wear this as a casual shoe.
WAS: $140 NOW: $56
USE: More of a casual/athletic shoe with tons of Boost underfoot that can work as a slow-pace running shoe. Plus, works well with a casual look.
WAS: $190 NOW: $152
