Best Running Shoes for Summer

When it comes to running in the summer, we all understand the importance of hydration and applying sunscreen. But did you know there are other important considerations when going on a nice summer run? 

Finding the right pair of running shoes for the summer is a more complicated process than most runners realise. Breathability and ventilation in your running shoes are a must if you plan on running during warmer conditions. Even when running indoors or in cooler weather heat, your feet become hot and sweaty. Picking shoes with a breathable engineered mesh that promotes airflow will assist in regulating your foot temperature and reduce discomfort and the risk of overheating.



Check out our top picks of the best breathable running shoes for summer.

 Daily Trainers:

 New Balance 860 v13


The New Balance 860 v13 uses a structured and breathable engineered mesh upper for supportive comfort and enhanced ventilation. Perfect for daily runs and easy kilometres thanks to the cushioned Fresh Foam X midsole that provides a blend of responsiveness and shock absorption. The New Balance 860 v13 offers a medial posting to prevent potentially harmful overpronating motions.


Marathon Running Shoes:

 Saucony Endorphin Elite


The Saucony Endorphin Elite is about as breathable as marathon shoes come. This re-imagined upper offers near-weightless performance and a distraction-free fit while allowing your foot to breathe the full 42.195 km. Not only is the Saucony Endorphin Elite breathable, but it also offers best-in-class performance by utilising a forked carbon plate and aggressive speed roll technology to turbocharge your run.


Lightweight Tempo Running Shoes:


 HOKA Mach 5

The Single-layer creel jacquard engineered mesh featured on the HOKA Mach 5 is excellent for breathability with no sacrifice to a secure lockdown. Pairing this upper with an all-new lightweight, resilient PROFLY+ midsole construction, the HOKA Mach 5 grants propulsion and a snappier rebound for go-fast days!


Trail Running Shoes:

Brooks Cascadia 17

The Brooks Cascadia 17 offers an upper that is as good for your feet as it is for the environment. Lightweight and breathable, while saving 66% of the energy and 75% of the water required for the traditional dye process. The TPU toe cap and mudguard provide the protection required for you to explore any trail with confidence without sacrificing breathability.
