We’ve checked out a lot of next year’s running shoes at recent trade shows and are in the process of wear-testing many of them. Here’s a rundown of some of the models we are drooling over in anticipation of 2017. Some of the biggest trends in shoe design include new, more resilient midsole foams, flat-knit and other engineered mesh uppers, subtle ink or TPU film upper reinforcements, new variations of sticky rubber outsoles and more shoes aimed at casual runners in the $100-$110 price range. Some of the models included here will hit stores by early February, while others will drop in July 2017.
