Brooks Levitate 4
    • THIS SHOE IS FOR: The Levitate 4 is perfect for runners who want a shoe that helps them by giving energy back with each step, the Levitate 4’s DNA AMP is now 20% lighter so our highest energy return foam is better than ever.
    • ENERGIZED CUSHIONING: Now 20% lighter, our DNA AMP midsole technology lets your foot spring off the ground with each step for speedy, efficient energy return.
    • SECURE, SOCK-LIFE FIT: We updated the Fit Knit Upper to provide a close-to-foot fit that’s lighter, softer, and more breathable than before. The Levitate 4 runs more shallow and provides a slightly more snug fit. If looking for a more roomy fit, Brooks recommends sizing up by 1/2 a size.
    • QUICK TRANSITIONS: An updated arrow-point pattern on the outsole lets your foot move from heel to toe quickly, enhancing the shoe’s springy feel.
    • WEAR TESTERS SAY: “ I loved the energy I felt when running in these. Great cushion and ride.”


 

Buyer’s Guide

How to Choose Running Shoes Whether you’re running for fun or preparing for a marathon, the right running shoes create the right foundation for your entire body, can prevent injury, and make your runs even more enjoyable. Ultimately, the right pair will work well from the start and complement your running style. 1. Think about where you want to run. Are you usually on the road? Or are you walking along paths and gravel roads? You can choose shoes for running, running or cross country. 2. Decide if you want to cushion more or less under your feet. Want to ride the clouds with maximum cushioning, or feel the ground beneath your feet? Cushioning (material thickness under the midsole and foam resistance) and heel drop are two factors to consider when designing a running shoe. 3. Understand if you need any support for walking. Most runners can opt for neutral shoes, but if your foot rolls in or out, there are shoes that can help you. 4. Make sure the shoes fit. Your shoes should fit snugly from the outset and avoid running-in periods.
