5 Perfect Shoes for Your Daily Run

April 10, 2014 3 min read

Whether you are training for a marathon or simply jogging down your neighborhood, it is always important to have the best running shoes available; especially to prevent any injury. Each year, as many more options become available, it gets harder and harder to find the perfect shoe. Unfortunately, not every shoe is made the exact same and that does not make things any easier! It is a great thing that we have experts to put them to the test for us! However, the perfect shoe for you individually depends on the physical structure of your feet, your gait, and how your arch lies. According to Runner's World, here are 5 of the best rated running shoes available on the market: dsc_0013-1 Asics Gel Kayano 20 {$160}: Asics has been known to produce prime running shoes for as long as I can remember. Back in high school, my track shoes were actually made by Asics-then I discovered the actual shoe line itself. Ahh, glorious! The Kayano features Fluidfit upper technology which combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, fitting like a customized glove. It is also gender specific-women's models feature a lower-density top layer in the midsole, allowing female athletes to better enjoy the benefits of midsole compression. The Kayano also features FluidRide, which provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability. e71de3cade9fcc982436789ed88a1782 Saucony Kinvara 4 {$100}: Saucony, from what I have heard all of my life, has been dubbed the "best running shoe ever made." The company has been producing running shoes for a while now-since 1898, to be exact. The Kinvara, voted Best Update by Runner's World, features FlexFlim for a lightweight, seamless feel. The shoe also features memory foam for a nice, cushioned feel. The shoe's heel was also updated in the landing zone for smoother transitions and improved overall ride. Juicing_versus_Blending Mizuno Wave Prophecy 3 {209.99}: Mizuno is another brand that is frequently associated with the likes of Asics & Brooks since it is primarily known as a "running brand," though they do make shoes for other activities such as golf, baseball, and soccer. However, most people tend to shy away from Mizuno due to the outrageous prices. This shoe is said to deliver a one of a kind experience by offering a smooth, dynamic, and propulsive fit. The Wave Prophecy features Dynamotion Fit Anatomical Lacing System, which follows the natural form of your foot to create harmony with every step. It also features the INFINITY WAVE to provide  heel-to-toe cushion and drive. images Brooks Addiction 11 {$120.00}: Brooks is yet another great running shoe and one I have personally worn during a race. The comfort, in my opinion, was impeccable!  The Brooks Addiction features Brooks DNA, which adds cushioning for a secure & generous fit while controlling motion. The midsole of this shoe is also made of biodegradable materials which is very interesting! This shoe is said to be best for flat footed runners. enell_sports_bra04 Nike Free Flyknit {$160}: Everyone knows Nike. They produce shoes from running to basketball to golf to-whatever you can do in a shoe! But, holy styles! There are tons and tons of them for each occasion, so things can get confusing. The Flyknit collection allows runners to choose the desired level of flexibility and close-to-the-ground ride. The shoe features hexagonal flex grooves on the bottoms and the design of the shoe itself mimics your actual feet, aiming to allow the foot to move more naturally.   What is your favorite tried and true running shoe?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
