How We Picked the Best Gifts
With more than 45 years of experience and 250+ locations in running communities across the country, Fleet Feet is the expert in running (and gifting). What makes the perfect gift for a runner comes down to the personal experience, goals, preferences and style of that runner.
To curate this list of the best running shoes, Fleet Feet Editors and running gear experts Tom Rivett, Mandy Wahl and Evan Matsumoto, in collaboration with our Fleet Feet gear testers and contributors, tested the best running gear, considered details like real-world performance, quality of materials, seasonal trends and also looked at best-seller lists and customer reviews to pick out the best gifts.
With all that in mind, we carefully hand-picked gear that lived up to our personal (and professional) expectations. The gifts on this guide have been updated to show only the newest products available in 2024.

We picked the best gifts based on what we think will work for the most people in most situations.
