Have you ever loved a pair of running shoes? The ones that find their way onto your feet and take you out on your morning run before the sun comes up? That you forget to take off even after stumbling back in the front door? Those shoes that work so well with your feet that you forget you’re wearing them? Shoes like that might feel magical, but the truth is in the technology, materials, and testing that go into each design. Here we’ve compiled some of our top running shoes for summer so you can find your perfect pair.

La Sportiva Ultra Raptor GTX® Shoe
For the long-distance explorer
When the terrain gets tough, these shoes shine. In addition to the waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX membrane, the Ultra Raptor is cushioned so you can go the distance with ease. On the bottom, you’ll find lugs oriented in opposing slanted directions to increase your braking power and maintain traction on the roughest trails. That means tighter turns, steadier descents, and less slipping. Protect your feet on any terrain. Learn more about the La Sportiva Ultra Raptor GTX® Shoe >
