The Best Long-Distance Running Shoes
If you've ever run 10+ miles in the shoes you normally run 3 miles in, you know that not all sneakers are meant for super-long runs. That's part of why Asics created their new MetaRide sneakers, which were actually designed to make running long distances easier by minimizing movement in the ankle joint. The result? A comfy, energetic feel each time your foot hits the pavement.
