1 ADIDAS

PUREBOOST GO

$170, available at selected Adidas stores and adidas.com.sg.

The adidas PureBOOST GO is a dynamic and versatile performance silhouette created specifically to adapt to the demands of running the city. The brand-new Expanded Landing Zone – a wider forefoot platform for increased forefoot stability during multi– directional movements – gives street runners ultimate adaptability. It also features a BOOST midsole and a deconstructed circular knit upper, crafted from a breathable fabric, improveing flexibility and freedom of movement with each step.

2 ASICS

HYPERGEL-SAI

$159, available at ASICS retail stores island wide.

The Asics HyperGEL-SAI provides a mix of comfort and performance thanks to series designer Takayuki Ueda. The HyperGEL-SAI stands out with an iconic asymmetrical eyelet construction inspired by the ASICS TIGER GEL MAI, and incorporates the HyperGEL midsole which integrates foam and GEL™ technologies to offer about 30 percent more bounce than standard EVA. This means you’ll look great while experiencing all-day comfort no matter how long you’re on your feet.

3 NIKE

ZOOM FLY FLYKNIT

$229, available at selected Nike retailers and Nike. com from 4 Oct 2018 onwards.

Nike’s React foam provides responsiveness like no other, and combining it with the breathable support and structure of feather weight Flyknit just makes sense. The Nike Zoom Fly Flyknit blends these two elements along with the full-length carbon-fiber plate found in the now legendary Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%, making it one of the fastest, lightest and coolest shoes you’ll want to put on your feet.
