If you’re at a point in your running career where you want to shave minutes off your marathon time, we suggest lacing up the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%. However, if you’re like most people and just trying to beat the neighbors during the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K (or Monster Dash or Reindeer Run), we suggest skipping the $250 sneakers and picking up a pair of Epic React Flyknit 2s which are currently discounted under $100 in two colors (White/Lime Blast and Club Gold). 

If you’re familiar with Nike’s lineup, you already know how good these running shoes are. If you’re just tuning in, the Epic React Flyknit 2 combines a Flyknit upper that offers unparalleled comfort but more support than previous iterations. Underfoot, the React foam offers noticeable spring and top-notch energy return, but the shoe forgoes the brand’s controversial carbon-fiber plates, which means it’s a more accessible shoe and won’t take miles to get used to. 

Four other colors are discounted as well, but for slightly less than $50. We’d say, if you’re looking for a 5K or 10K shoe, go for the gold pair — it’ll be the last thing runners in your dust see before you cross the finish line.
