Testers loved this shoe's comfort and smooth heel-to-toe transition. Credit a combination of silicone-based cushioning pads, a stable heel, and a springy midsole compound called MoGo, which we found responsive and highly shock-absorbing. Best for neutral runners to mild pronators. 9.1 oz; brooksrunning.com

Bonus: The eco-friendly manufacturing process for MoGo reduces waste.

Bummer: The toe box might feel a little roomy for some.
