Designed for midfoot-striking, frequent runners, this responsive, breathable shoe does a solid job of walking the line between fast and rugged. Its outsole was "super protective," said a tester, and though the asymmetrical tongue and laces, designed to avoid hot spots on the foot, take some getting used to, they posed no problems. Weight: 10 ounces. [$110; brooksrunning.com]
