Beyond that, Runner’s World has had much success in what they do: they have the most comprehensive shoe testing process in the industry. They have gone as far as to work with 350 local runners, where after a month, runners have had the opportunity to report back their findings and features like fit. Finally, “the same models undergo a battery of mechanical tests in our RW Shoe Lab, where we objectively measure each shoe’s cushioning, flexibility, sole thickness, and weight. Our test editors combine their own experience in the shoes with data from the lab and feedback from our wear-testers to create reliable, useful reviews of every pair we run in.”
