Brooks Ghost 10
RUNNER’S WORLD REVIEW
Award Winner: Editor’s Choice
Why is the Ghost such a strong performer, year after year? We continually see it fare as well for new runners who want a cushioned trainer as it does for speedier folks needing a high-mileage shoe that rolls quickly. It’s that versatility and winning formula that earns the model its sixth Editor’s Choice award. This fall, it was the number-one pick among our wear-testers. They appreciated the comfortable, secure fit of the engineered mesh forefoot, and ran big mileage on the soft midsole that’s a carry-over from last year’s model. Our testers’ lone quibble: It feels a little heavy, but they say it’s a small price to pay for the overall performance. The shoe’s price, by the way, remains stable for a fourth straight year.
Asics Nimbus 20
RUNNER’S WORLD REVIEW
The Nimbus, now in its 18th version, was the original “cloud” runner, with extra cushioning heel to toe and a softly padded upper. The newest update sets the heel gel pad at an angle, designed to be closer to the foot as you roll into the stride. While the shoe is noticeably heavier than other models, all the testers appreciated the familiar plush ride, and women raved about the fit and comfort of the flexible mesh upper.

Lots of runners use compression socks to help them quickly recover from hard workouts or long races. Graduated compression helps boost circulation while preventing lactic acid build-up. This product is also made in a sleeve if you prefer your favorite running socks, are light-weight, and moisture-wicking. A lot of runners wear them while they train, but others use them after a run. At Riverside Runners specialty running store in Lynchburg, Virginia, we carry a range of compression socks, including CEP socks.
