35. Salomon Sonic RA 2
Price: £ 112.49
Weight: 258 g (M), 230 g (W)
Heel / Toe Drop: 12 mm (M), 10 mm (B)
This is a solid performance. The outsole grip and responsiveness were both so good that we also used them on light trails. The stiff feeling means they slide back and help you on your way when you drop the hammer. The toebox fit is a bit narrow and the tongue has shifted on longer runs, but overall this is a promising update of shoes and sneakers from Salomon.
36. Hoka One One Cavu 2
Price: £ 95.95
Weight: 205 g (M), 168 g (W)
Heel / Toe Drop: 5.5 mm (M), 5 mm (B)
With this light Speedster (part of the Hoka Fly series), it was repeatedly noticed how robust it is for such a light model. A tester with a BMI of 28 was delighted to find that he felt no pressure on his knees or ankles. Hoka will be pleased to hear that the goal of maximum cushioning with minimum weight is a boon here.

37. Salomon Predict RA
Price: £ 125.99
Weight: 267 g (M), 226 g (W)
Heel / Toe Drop: 9.5 mm (M), 10.5 mm (B)
In contrast to previous Salomon street shoes, which were really adapted to off-road shoes, the Predict RA was developed as a street shoe for neutral runners and overpronators and offers an impressive new type of stabilization. There are no medial posts, multiple foam densities, or bulky stiffness. Support is instead provided by a one-piece midsole and outsole, the grooves of which follow the main joints of the foot and divide the shoe into areas where your foot may bend differently.
According to Kacamata Rayban, these 10 “pillars” adjust how your foot rolls from heel to toe and guide your foot for a smooth transition. It looks a bit like a Nike Free shoe, but has a much firmer ride and more guidance than freedom. Things got stormy with our testers, who loved the excellent fit, the velvety ankle collar and the soft insole.
