When you’re buying fitness gear for runners, you know that price isn’t the whole story, especially when you want the best men’s running shoes. Comfort, support, and performance all factor in your choice of shoes. The Altra Rivera running shoes are relatively light weight at just 18.2 ounces a pair. The Rivera’s moderate cushioning with neutral support make them a good choice for daily training sessions or even everyday use. The mesh uppers have a breathable material and design so your feet don’t get hot and sticky as you run. Altra’s Neutral InnerFlex midsole is flexible enough for comfort while supporting your running weight. Altra’s Balanced Cushioning platform is designed with the forefoot and heel at the same height from the ground so you don’t put undue impact pressure on either.

It’s imperative that running shoes fit but they also have to suit the type of running involved. The Altra Rivera’s lace-up closure helps ensure your shoes are tight enough so they don’t slip around as you run but at the same time don’t overly constrict blood flow, comfort, and your natural foot movement. The heels are designed to aid natural heel-to-toe movement and Altra’s trademarked FootShape toe boxes keep your toes straight without uncomfortable tightness.

Because of the way the cushioning and FootShape work together, you’ll want to consider how that may affect sizing. Altra suggests that you allow for a thumb’s width of space in front of your toes to allow room for the Balanced Cushioning and toe box. This extra space may require ordering a half size or a full size larger than your usual size, especially if your previous running shoes have had tight toe boxes. Be sure to check the Altra sizing notes on the REI website page to ensure you buy the correct size Rivera Running Shoes. According to the manufacturer, when you buy the right size with this design they may seem a bit too large in the beginning, but in time your toes will naturally spread to take advantage of the freer space available. The result will be much more comfort than usual in the less constrained design.

Don’t hesitate to snap up this half-off sale on men’s Altra Rivera road-running shoes. Instead of REI’s regular $130 price tag you can score a new pair of these lightweight road runners for just $65, a $65 savings. The Altra Rivera road-runners’ focus on comfort and performance will make them your go-t0 daily trainers, but only if you take advantage of this limited deal now.

Save Big on This Asphalt-Pounding Mizuno Running Shoe

There are plenty of "running shoes" out there or shoes that look like they're designed for running. They lace like them, have a similar tread, and even smell like them, fresh out of the box. But the old maxim about getting what you pay for is true with running shoes just as it is with most other things in life, and after few weeks and a half-dozen aches and pains later, you'll realize that looks can be deceiving. Well, the
Mizuno Wave Rider
is a tried-and-true running shoe, ready to handle big miles while supporting your body with every step, and right now it's on sale on Amazon Prime Day deals for $40 off its usual price.

Believe it or not, Japanese maker Mizuno has been crafting sporting equipment for more than 100 years, and it does so with the same care with which the culture is known. Its Wave Rider series, now in its 24th iteration, has been a staple among core runners for decades. A high-mileage trainer for neutral-gait runners, it achieves its distinguishing light weight through a minimal amount of foam and the company's proprietary "Wave Plate," which acts as a suspension bridge might in absorbing impact. The result is a nimble shoe that feels fast and yet still handles the same mileage as other foam-forward companies.
