Nike has been indefatigable in its mission to achieve a sub-two-hour marathon (from a runner in its proprietary shoes, that is). This mission has so captured the media’s attention that you — the casual, 5K or one-marathon-a-year runner — may believe that you also need these mystical, expensive Nike shoes. That is not true. There are plenty of other brands to consider, and today we recommend Reebook because its entire sale section is an extra 50% off with code MSS.
We’ve touted Reebok’s Floatride Run a few times before, especially because the running sneaker won the Best Debut award from Runner’s World the first year it was released, and now it’s an unbeatable $67. But the brand has a few noteworthy derivatives on that base model depending on what type of runner you are, including the Floatride Run Fast and the Forever Floatride Energy, which are even cheaper — $62 and $45, respectively.
Find out a little more about those sneakers below, or shop the mid-season sale for yourself right here.
Reebok recommends this award-winning shoe for long-distance runs, from marathons to half marathons to 10Ks. The design includes a sock-like liner and 3D heel cradle for support.
Floatride Run Fast
As the name suggests, this shoe is for faster jaunts, whether that’s short sprints or fast-paced long-distance runs. It’s the lightest of these three (just 6.6 ounces) and eschews the sock liner of the Floatride Run if you’re into more traditional designs. Only discounted in certain colors.
Forever Floatride Energy
Reebok recommends this shoe for everyday running, and at $100 full-price it’s a perfectly economical option. On sale for just $45, it’s pretty much unbeatable. Only discounted in certain colors.
