Find your next pair of men’s running shoes from one of our top running brands. Train smarter and improve your running performance with the most up to date technology and features found in the latest men’s running trainers. You can explore the full range here from Brooks, Mizuno, Saucony, Hoka, ON, Altra, New Balance and Asics.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner on the Couch to 5K programme or you’ve been running for years, buying a new pair of running shoes is an investment in your sport.

The standard width for men’s running shoes is D, but some shoes are available in a wider fitting. The sizes available online in men’s running shoes are generally UK 8 to UK 12, however if a larger or smaller size is needed it may be possible for us to supply and it’s worth calling customer services to see what is available. Equally men requiring a smaller shoe can opt for a women’s shoe, unless it has been designed specifically for women, such as Altra.

Ideally you will have already visited one of Up & Running’s stores for gait analysis and so you will know whether you’re a neutral runner, or whether you need some support to protect you and help prevent your ankles rolling in or out while running.

For new runners in particular there is a minefield of jargon to understand. To find out what happens during gait analysis and how we use this information, have a look at our gait analysis blog.

When buying your running shoes, you need to consider:

  • The type of terrain you will be running on - road, trail, fell, all-terrain or track. Can you narrow your search down by terrain type? Are you going to be using the shoe on the road, or do you need something more rugged and grippy for those off-road adventures? The Saucony Peregrine is a first-rate trail shoe. Perhaps you need an all-terrain shoe such as the Hoka One One Challenger ATR that will take you from the road to the trail and will work well on both surfaces.
  • What type of runner are you? – neutral or overpronator? The Brooks Ghost is a popular road shoe for a neutral runner, but if you overpronate the Brooks Adrenaline GTS is our best-selling stability road shoe. Have a look at our gait analysis guide as it may help you to choose. Better still, visit one of the Up & Running stores and have your gait analysed for free. 
  • How much cushioning do you want? The stack height refers to the cushioning in the shoe that sits between your feet and the ground. The range is from low, which is found in racing shoes for improved performance; medium which is suitable for new runners and is the most popular to maximum cushioning found in shoes like the Hoka One One Clifton which will absorb the most impact and give you a bouncy run. Check out the stack height blog for more cushioning advice.

Good luck and happy running!
