The Best 10 Running Shoes and Brands for Under $100

There are many great brands of running shoes out there, so many in fact that to say one brand is king and greater than the others would be a falsity. The design, engineering, and development of running shoes have come along way and all the top brands offer great quality and value. 

Because there is no great divide in the competitive advantage of running shoes it really comes down to a few personal factors. Factors such as foot size and width, body weight, your running style, how the shoe fits and its comfort, and even your preference of how the shoe looks. 

Another factor that plays an important role is the price of the shoe.  We have compiled a list of the top 10 running shoes from 10 different brands all under the price of $100. 

This list is not a ranking but placed in random order.
