Nike LunarEclipse4

Not built like a gazelle? No matter. This supremely flexible, forgiving shoe allows even bigger runners to tack on more mileage, thanks to a soft ride that one tester described as "bouncy." Not to say that it's not technically sound: Its fly-wire tech fits the midfoot like a glove. Reflective graphics make its wearers more visible to cars, too. (11.6 oz; 10mm drop) [$135; nike.com]
