Amazon has got an absolute smorgasbord of Cyber Monday fitness deals available right now, and among them, it does a surprisingly good line on men's running shoes.
Good running shoes can sometimes be quite an expensive purchase, with good reason – you want a shoe to protect not just your feet, but your knees and hips from the impact of the road. However, the Amazon Cyber Monday deals has some great discounts on a trio of top brands: ASICS, Adidas and New Balance. Check out our pick of the discounts below:
Adidas Ultraboost 20 | was $180.00 | now $121.44 at Amazon
Save $60 on one of the best running shoes around right now. Ultraboosts are always top sellers – our 19s have seen many a mile – making this a great deal. With Adidas' Responsive Boost midsole and a Primeknit upper, this is top of our list for a reason.
New Balance Men's Fresh Foam Arishi V3 | was $69.99 | now $34.99 at Amazon
Save 50% on an already very well-priced New Balance shoe. It's said to use New Balance's "fresh foam" tech to deliver a lightweight, cushioned ride. Great for people getting into running for the first time and are keen to protect their joints, without making the investment of a top-of-the-range shoe like the Ultraboost.
ASICS Gel-Quantum 180 | was $120.00 | now $79.99 at Amazon
Get 1/3 off this awesome pair of ASICS at Amazon. A gel-based cushioning system mitigates shock throughout the landing and toe-off phases of your stride, while the sleek grey-black blend makes for a good-looking shoe. Stock's running low, so order fast.

What should you look for in a good running shoe?
First and foremost, you want a good fit, as you don't want to be putting your feet under stress with a shoe that's too small, or big. Always check the brand's sizing guide before you order.
Next, make sure you're buying from a reputable brand, like the trio listed above. Great indie running shoes do exist, but you don't want to be risking your health by trying out a shoe that hasn't been properly vetted. The top brands mean thousands of runners use their technology every day, so it's easy to get a consensus when it comes to a good running shoe.
You also want to know your terrain. If like most people, you're planning on running along roads and paved areas, the above shoes will be ideal. For long trail runs and wilderness, it's best to look for more specialist kit like our best trail running shoes.
