SMOOTH AND STABLE

Prone to twisted ankles? The sole below the Ascend’s fore-foot fans out slightly, which made testers feel secure on trail and road alike. Additional support comes from a visible, wave-shaped, shock-absorbing composite plate that runs from the heel of the shoe to the midfoot. 9.9 oz; mizuno.com

Bonus: Laces stay tied without double-knotting.

Bummer: One tester felt the mesh didn’t ventilate well enough on warm days.
