Nike Flyknit Lunar2

The Flyknit Lunar2 is slightly more supportive up top thanks to upper construction in the form of finger-like bands stretching from the sole to the laces. These bands also make for a rad look, fusing contrasting colors in a way that only Flyknit can.

adidas Energy Boost 2.0 Running Shoes

The second generation of the much loved Energy Boost from adidas comes in Neon Iron, Solar Blue, Dark Onix, Black, and Running Black / White for men and the same for women in Vivid Berry. A running shoe that could pass for a lifestyle model with a slightly retro looking wedge midsole and minimal colorway options, we love the look of this Boost equipped shoe.

$160

CASADIA

Brooks Cascadia 9

Put these right by your alarm clock in the morning for some extra motivation to get out of bed and fire up them legs. The Cascadia 9 is a great looking shoe for the trail, not too bulky with maximum traction underfoot to keep you on your feet.

Saucony Men's Xodus 4.0

Winter is not letting up, but that's okay if you have a pair of Xodus trail runners. This is a truly terrific running shoe for rain, snow, ice and everyday sludge thanks to the Vibram outsole and aggressive lugs that make you feel like Spiderman in a velcro factory. The look is good too, those lugs are sporty as hell if worn with the right running jacket.

Brooks Unisex Racer ST 5

There's something about original racing shoes that makes you look like you know what you're doing with your life. In the original black / yellow / white colorway, the ST 5 looks like it can float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

$90

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14

Never underestimate the badass look of an all black everything athletic shoe. The GTS (go to shoe) is pretty stealth looking in black on black on black, equipped with a segmented crash pad and Brooks DNA cushioning for a comfy fit.
