Best-Selling Nike Running Shoes

You'll find Nike running shoes everywhere. From runways to road races, the blend of high performance and standout style give Nike shoes appeal for a wide range of workouts and activities.

Whether you're racing in Boston, logging laps on the neighborhood loop or kicking back at the brewery, Nike running shoes will go with you. Here are some of the best-selling Nike shoes for running (and everything else you do):

  • Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36. The best-selling Nike running shoes ever just got better. A slimmer silhouette and low-profile tongue create a streamlined feel, and a full-length Air Zoom unit packed into Cushlon foam creates a cushioned step and snappy response.
  • Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%. The fastest marathon shoe, now even faster. The Vaporfly NEXT% uses 15 percent more ZoomX foam to achieve a performance boost, but it still holds on to the articulated carbon-fiber plate that acts like a spring for your feet.
  • Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2. Unreal cushion powers the Nike Pegasus Turbo 2. Built on the bones of the stock Pegasus, the Peg Turbo 2 delivers a bouncier ride with the same footprint.
  • Nike Air Zoom Structure 22. Stability and speed meet in the Nike Structure 22. Nike's Dynamic Support technology creates stability that adapts to your unique weight, gait and pronation. In short, it's there when you need it and disappears when you don't.
  • Nike Epic React Flyknit 2. The icon gets an update. Nike made small tweaks to the Epic React Flyknit 2, like adding a subtle color gradient on the midsole and changing the shape of the heel cup, but it still sports the same bouncy, durable React foam midsole that made the original go.

About Nike Running Shoes

One of the biggest breakthroughs in Nike running shoe technology started with a waffle iron.

University of Oregon track coach Bill Bowerman spent years tinkering with track spikes to make them lighter and more cushioned. His work led to the original Cortez: a road running shoe with a full-length foam midsole that cushioned landings and an elevated heel that alleviated Achilles' tendon problems.

But the Cortez needed better traction. That's when Bowerman turned to the waffle iron.

He poured melted urethane into a waffle iron to create an outsole with rubber studs. Those studs delivered improved grip on all surfaces, and led to the rise of modern Nike running shoes.

Today, Nike shoes still inspire athletes to run their best. From legendary footwear like the Nike Pegasus and Zoom Structure to the record-hawking Nike Vaporfly NEXT%, the Swoosh has a running shoe for all your workouts and races.

The best Nike running shoes are packed full of premium features to deliver industry leading performance. After the success of the Nike Vaporfly 4% Flyknit, designers knew they had to improve the shoe's performance. So, they engineered a brand new upper material, called VaporWeave, to create the Vaporfly NEXT%.
