Reebok One Cushion, $110

weights: 9.2 oz. (men’s); 7.9 oz. (women’s)

heights: 32mm (heel), 21mm (forefoot)

Fit: The fit on this shoe is straight-up snug in the heel and midfoot, but with a more generous cut in the forefoot.

Feel: It feels light and flexible like many neutral shoes, but that’s also a tribute to a blended three-zone construction that addresses three phases of a footstrike. Welded overlays offer a bit of structure to the fit without adding weight or inhibiting the easy flex of this shoe.

Ride: Soft and smooth. The unique three-density foam midsole offers graduated cushioning that seamlessly helps a runner’s foot transition as it rolls from the heel-strike to toe-off phase of a stride. Although this concept is hidden in plain sight, it’s one of the primary reasons our testers raved about this shoe’s easy-rolling ride.
