Breathable Running Shoes

June 20th, 2013

It’s easy to find technical running apparel for the hotter temps of summer, but what about your feet? Running shoes with better breathability help keep your feet cooler and allow your sweat to evaporate more quickly, which can decrease your risk of blisters. Your body also loses a lot of heat through your feet, so wearing more breathable footwear can keep you cooler overall. Here are a few of our favorite breathable shoes for summer.

Asics Gel Noosa Tri 8

If you’re in the mood for some style in your breathable footwear, reach for the Asics Gel Noosa Tri 8. The upper of this shoe is constructed using a no-sew open mesh, which gives a highly breathable feel and sockless comfort.

Mizuno Rider 16

The Mizuno Rider 16 offers a close, performance fit, and the wide open mesh upper enhances ventilation. Actually, Mizuno offers several models with a more open mesh design, including the Wave Precision 13, Wave Ronin 5, and Evo Collection shoes.

Nike Breathe

Let your lungs – and your feet – breathe freely on your next run in the Nike Breathe pack shoes. The Air Pegasus+ 29, Free 5.0+ and LunarGlide+ 4 all got the Breathe treatment, which boast a highly breathable open mesh upper construction to keep your feet happier in hot weather.

Nike Flyknit Racer

The Nike Flyknit Racer is a champ when it comes to footwear breathability. The open knit of the upper allows for excellent ventilation. The seamless construction of the upper easily allows you to go sockless if you choose. This shoe also gives you a responsive ride and a hard-to-beat fit.

Saucony Cortana 2

The Saucony Cortana 2 is a premium shoe for the neutral runner who wants a low offset. The upper of this shoe boasts a generous amount of open mesh for optimum airflow around your foot while you run.

Saucony Cortana 2 Sneak Peek

June 7th, 2012

On first glance, you may be wondering why we’re showing you what seems like pictures of the current Saucony Cortana and saying it’s a new shoe. But look closer and you’ll see a carefully re-crafted upper that shaves over an ounce off the original Cortana, designed to retain a familiar fit and feel.

What to Watch For

  • Lighter Weight: The Cortana 2 loses over an ounce in both Men’s and Women’s models, thanks to the materials used in the new upper. Weights are estimated at just 9.8 oz (Men’s size 9) and 8.6 oz (Women’s size 8).
  • New Upper Design: The basic design elements of the original Cortana – open mesh, a structured heel, and a fade-out color scheme – are refined in this update.
  • Unchanged Platform: The midsole/outsole of the original Cortana carries over in the update to the Cortana 2. That means you still get a resilient ride along with a good amount of cushioning for higher-mileage runs.
