跑者世界 (Runner's world) 堪稱慢跑領域最專業的網站,其網站每年(季)都會針對各家廠商新發表的鞋款進行評鑑,選出最佳鞋款。若你對於跑鞋的選購尚為新手或者懶得自己比較爬文,或許可以參考看看本次評鑑的結果。

這次2008春季的評鑑共選出27款優質鞋款,再從其中選出BEST BUY,可謂優質好鞋!而不可不知的跑鞋可分為避震、穩定、控制三大種類,這篇文章也以這三類進行分類,正文為Warren Greene所著,我挑選了幾雙得獎的鞋款加上臺灣比較紅的幾雙鞋,簡單翻譯如下:



[穩定鞋款]
編輯推薦: Asics Gel-Kayano 14

        更好、更強的更新, 14代鞋款在足跟部分的亞瑟膠足足比13代增加了25%!根據實際的測試,這代的鞋款由於鞋底材質的關係,比前一代稍硬,這可以讓跑步時腳跟感覺不那麼軟,測試者認為這樣的改變不至於造成足部的不適應,也就是說不會變硬也不會太軟。除此之外還有新設計的中底,輕量的設計讓腳板的力回饋更快速。

建議給那些需要一雙穩定、及擁有良好避震效果跑鞋的人

測試者之聲:「鞋頭內襯(鞋頭部份定型用,可保護腳部於行走時不會受到碰撞而受傷)和足跟擁有完美的包覆」


14代(亞瑟膠明顯增加!!)

13代
最佳選擇: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8
最新的GTS8在中底及大底材質上更加柔軟,如此更能隔絕跑步時的衝擊。經過跑者世界實驗室的測試之後,這樣的設計及卻可以增加跑鞋的避震性。Brooks也重新使用在GTS6系列中獲得好評的大底,使腳跟著地時更平滑,腳踝更穩定地旋轉。

這雙鞋建議給正常足弓且想擁有一雙柔軟又耐用跑鞋的訓練者。

測試者之聲:「柔軟的避震效果配合完美的支撐!」、「良好的避震與支撐」

Brooks GT8

鞋底


Mizuno Wave Inspire 4
新一代的inspire擁有新的包覆設計,美津濃在鞋跟穩定處使用具彈性的條狀結構(WAVE),可以幫助減少腳踝過度外翻並提供更舒適的跑感。不少測試者提出這雙鞋獨特的包覆感,並在幾次的使用後才習慣。
We Say: The latest Inspire uses a new upper design to better wrap the heel. Mizuno added a strip of stretchy fabric to the upper in front of the heel counter, which helps isolate the ankle's outward motion and provides a more snug fit. Several wear-testers noticed a different heel fit that took a few runs to get used to.

這雙鞋建議給擁有正常至低足弓的使用者,想要減少跑步時足部外翻者。

測試者之聲:「擁有剛好的穩定性,但可以有多一點避震」、「在習慣了足部的包覆感之後,這雙鞋真是太棒了」
Recommended for runners with normal to low arches willing to try a new way to combat heel slippage. Wear-testers Say: "Just the right amount of stability, but it could use more cushioning." --Michael McGann, 32, Allentown "After I got used to the heel fit, I really enjoyed running in these shoes."


Inspire 4

鞋底
Mizuno Wave Nirvana 4
與Inspire相同,最新款的Nirvana同樣提供了更好的足部包覆,不同於其他鞋款,這雙鞋的WAVE是完全獨立(整片式的),這使得腳板更不容易外翻。新的鞋款提供了更多穩定性和更加的包覆性。沒有測試者發現到這樣的新設計,但是經過實驗室的測驗,Nirvana4代比3代稍微硬一點。
We Say: As with the Inspire, the updated Nirvana is designed to have a better heel fit. Unlike its sibling, however, this shoe's heel panels are completely independent. This makes the panels less susceptible to bulging outward, which gives the 4 more stability and a better fit. None of our testers noticed the new heel design, however. Lab tests showed the Nirvana 4 to be slightly firmer than the 3,

這雙鞋建議給擁有低足弓且尋找一雙耐用鞋款的使用者。

測試者之聲:「鞋底的凹槽容易卡雪?」「這是雙舒適且擁有良好支撐的鞋」
so we recommend it for runners with lower arches looking for a durable trainer with a great fit. Wear-testers Say: "The gap under the heel trapped a lot of snow." "It was comfortable, with good arch support."


Nirvana4

[避震鞋款]
最佳改版: Adidas Supernova Cushion 7
最新款的Supernova提供傑出的舒適度,許多測試者提出其較寬的鞋中部相當舒適。中底也採用新的設計(Formotion),可以減少腳踝的滑動和緩和衝擊,並且讓此鞋款更加穩定。
We Say: The latest Supernova Cushion offers an outstanding fit, thanks to the new last used in all the other Adidas shoes in this guide. It's wider through the midfoot, which many testers found comfortable. Also new are two heel plates, found in the midsole, that slide slightly on top of one another to isolate impact forces and slow side-to-side movement. This makes this update slightly more stable.

這雙鞋建議給中至高足弓的使用者,想要尋找柔軟及良好的足弓包覆者

測試者之聲:「完美的避震和足弓包覆」「我愛這雙的透氣性,一雙非常舒服的鞋」
Recommended for runners with normal to high arches looking for a soft shoe with a good midfoot wrap. Wear-testers Say: "The cushioning and arch fit were excellent." --Lisa Benvenuto, 28, Allentown "I loved the breathability; a very comfortable shoe." --Tyler Ernst, 21, East Lansing Price: $90 Widths: Standard-4E (M) Standard-2E (W) Weight: 12.1 oz (M) 10.3 oz (W) Contact: 800-448-1796; shopadidas.com



最佳選擇: Mizuno Wave Rider 11
這雙鞋跟Inspire4有相同的設計,彈性的鞋板(WAVE)讓跑步時的腳跟的衝擊降到最小,也提高了鞋子的合腳性。前腳掌部份的彈性膠提供絕佳的避震性,在整個評比鞋款中得到第二名的佳績。新的鞋墊在足根部及掌部提供了柔軟的觸覺。
We Say: The Rider has the same new heel design we saw in the Inspire 4 (page 98). A stretchy panel in the rearfoot makes the upper less likely to lose its shape at footstrike, which improves the shoe's heel fit. Deep forefoot flex grooves make this the second most flexible shoe in the guide, and a new sockliner that's dimpled under the heel and forefoot yields a softer feel underfoot.

推薦給高足弓,需要一雙輕量與富彈性鞋款的跑者。

測試者之聲:「這是雙完美的長跑鞋」「舒服的好鞋,鞋子上部的設計讓腳踝舒服極了」
Recommended for runners with high arches seeking a lightweight and flexible shoe. Wear-testers Say: "This is a superb shoe for long runs." --Lauren Garges, 33, Allentown "Great overall fit; the upper part of the shoe was really comfortable around the ankle." --Lance Blaskowski, 25, San Diego Price: $95 Widths: Standard-2E (M) Standard-D (W) Weight: 11.2 oz (M) 8.9 oz (W) Contact: 800-966-1211; mizunousa.com



Rider11

原本想買的鞋
New Balance 1062
New Balance重新修正了1062的基礎,讓這雙鞋比起前款擁有更佳的支撐性。鞋橋更厚而鞋底三個獨立的部份,可以抵擋衝擊(避震膠),在足跟到指尖提供完美的力轉換。這雙鞋在整體評鑑中,仍是最硬的一雙。
We Say: New Balance overhauled the sole of the 1062 to make it more supportive than its predecessor. The transition bridge is now thicker, and the heel is segmented into three independent pods to better isolate impact forces and promote a smoother transition from heel-strike to toe-off. It's still the stiffest shoe in this guide.

建議給體重較重擁有高足弓的跑者,需求一雙良好避震和額外支撐的鞋。

測試者之聲:「足弓的包覆讓腳更安全,但重量可以在減輕一點」「這雙鞋有完美的避震、透氣性和靈巧的鞋帶設計」
Recommended for bigger runners with normal to high arches who want good cushioning with a bit of added support. Wear-testers Say: "The arch wrap kept my feet secure, but the weight could be reduced." "The shoe had excellent cushioning, great breathability, and an ingenious lace design."


New Balance 1062

[專業訓練鞋款]
最佳新產品: Puma Complete Eutopia
Puma最新設計擁有漂亮的外觀與堅強的表現。足跟和腳掌部的加入了六角形的聚亞安酯結構,這樣的設計可以在鞋底受到擠壓時,增加避震性和柔軟度。本鞋款是眾多測試鞋款中避震性最佳的一雙。鞋面以網狀布料包覆,提供額外的支撐和舒適的前腳感覺。
We Say: Puma's latest has a flashy look and offers solid performance, too. 
The heel and forefoot feature a section of durable polyurethane hexagonal units that compress into each other for added softness,
tying the Bislett (right) as the softest shoe in this category. The upper overlays are covered in mesh for added support and a snug
forefoot feel.

提供給高足弓且尋找一雙獨一無二鞋款的跑者

測試者之聲:「這雙鞋有舒服的包覆,需要花一點時間來適應」「第一次穿時覺得太緊,但
是這是一雙高品質的鞋」
Recommended for efficient runners with higher arches looking for a unique aesthetic.
Wear-testers Say: "The shoes had a snug fit at first and took a few miles to break in."
"At first feel this shoe felt too minimal, but it is a quality shoe."
