Best Cushion Running Shoes 2010

We’ve been holding out updating our list of cushion running shoes for 2010 until some shoes gained enough traction and support to displace our Best Cushion Running Shoes 2009 list. Well finally we have some worthy contenders to the heavenly Nike Zoom Vomero+ 4. And there they are!

Brooks Glycerin 8


Brooks is fast becoming a trouble for Nike. The whole running community already considers them to have a stranglehold of the Motion Control Running Shoes sector with the Brooks Beast Running Shoes and now they are gaining a following with their Glycerin Series.

The new Brooks Glycerin features a new GEL Cushion system that is what they call non-Newtonian. That simply means that the cushioning system adjusts to how hard you drive the shoe. This new innovation makes the Brooks Glycerin 8 quite a formidable cushioned shoe that will prove more than its place on top of this list.

Adidas Supernova Glide 2

The Adidas Supernova Glide 2 is the successor to the very successful Glide 1 which was itself successor to the legendary Supernova Cushion series. We all know how much the Supernova changed the landscape for cushion running shoes.

The Wave Creation 11 from Mizuno makes itself known! It has overtaken its usually better selling brother the Mizuno Wave Rider series. This new cushion running shoes from Mizuno has gotten good feedback with its new DynamotionFit which allows this running shoe to adapt to the changes of your foot while it is in-motion. This dynamic fit is a breakthrough compared to the competitions more “static fit.”

This is also very good for beginning runners are it offers more protection for those with higher arches. The heavier weight and wave plate make it easy for the Mizuno Wave Creation 11 to accomplish this.
