Shoe Cushion Levels
What makes men's racing shoes different than traditional running shoes?
Racing shoes are sleeker and lighter than the traditional training or running shoe. Racing shoes are designed for speed, as research shows that the average runner will shave a second off of each mile for every ounce they shave off their shoe.
Typically, racing shoes offer around 20 percent less cushioning than classic training shoes. If you need the extra cushioning, stick with your trainers.

Should I wear racing shoes for half-marathons and marathons?
Men's racing shoes are ideally suited for 5Ks and 10Ks because of their light weight. However, they aren't recommend for half-marathons and marathons; in order to offer this lightweight feel, racing shoes for men offer less stability and motion-control features. If you're taking part in a longer race, opt for traditional training shoes, like ASICS or New Balance running shoes for men.
