How I Conduct Tests and Select the Best Shoe

At, I take pride in providing helpful, authentic, and reliable shoe reviews. I’m a runner and shoe researcher for the past 5 years, I have personally tested numerous running shoes and experimented with different types. In this article, I will share with you the best shoes I use in conducting my tests and selecting the best products.

How I Test Shoe:

To ensure the accuracy and reliability of my shoe reviews, I subject each product to two independent tests. First, I conduct a series of mechanical tests in my shoe lab, where I weigh and measure each shoe and closely examine its heel and forefoot thickness. This allows me to get a reliable figure for the drop, which is often quite different from what manufacturers claim. Second, I conduct wear tests by running at least 100 miles or more in each shoe, covering different terrains, including roads, trails, and steep hills.

My Shoe Selection Process:

Before selecting a shoe to review, I conduct rigorous research into product categories and trends, interview product engineers and experts, and listen to reader feedback and consumer reviews. I never write a product review because a brand asked me to or paid me to. I choose each shoe independently and do not accept payment from any company. If a piece is sponsored, I make that clear to you at the top of the page.

My Goal:

My goal is to help you find the best running shoes that fit your needs. I provide in-depth and comprehensive reviews to give you an idea of what to expect from a product. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced runner, I am here to guide you in making informed decisions when it comes to buying running shoes.
