As a five-time marathon runner and the fitness editor for Tom's Guide, I've spent a lot of time testing the best running shoes on the market. Having logged thousands of miles in dozens of shoes, I've developed a sense of what separates a good running shoe from a great running shoe.
Whether you're looking for a shoe to get you through your first Turkey Trot, or are looking for something as you gear up for a marathon next year, Prime Day is a good time to find deals on some of the best shoes around. And while the Big Deal Days event may have come to a close, there's still one great deal to still be had.
It doesn't actually come from Amazon, but Nike. The company is still offering the excellent Nike Pegasus 40 at 20% off, making them even more affordable. It's also keeping its discount running, pun intended, on the Nike Invincible 3.
The Nike Pegasus 40: was $130 but is now $103 @ Nike and makes a great shoe to log lots of easy miles. They're so versatile that they're great for all kinds of runner for all kinds of distances — from 5ks to marathons. And, they come in a wide variety of colors, too.
Meanwhile, the Nike Invincible 3s are my favorite running shoe ever. Right now, you can save in the Nike sale, using the code ULTIMATE at check out to get an extra 20% off the shoe.

Of course, finding the best running shoes for you is a personal decision, and like the best sports bras or best running watches, everyone will be looking for something slightly different. My advice? Ignore the shoes that your running partner recommends, and go for the pair that feel the best on your feet — I’ve never cared what I look like at mile 25 of a marathon, but if I can cross the line with all my toenails and still be able to walk down the stairs the next day, my running shoes have done their job. Keep an eye on Tom’s Guide, as I’ll be updating this page as new deals drop.
