We review these mile-eating running shoes from K-Swiss.

K-Swiss Blade Max Glide

These training shoes from K-Swiss feature the company’s trademark Blades, which give a springy toe-off as they flex and create an almost entirely flat, relatively wide outsole that adds stability on impact. This extra support, coupled with comfy heel tabs, anti-chafe sock liners and decent cushioning makes them a good choice for those neutral runners – or slight overpronators sick of chunky arch supports – who want a solid pair of shoes to run on and on with. Better on the mid and forefoot than the fairly rigid heel, the Blade Max Glides offer a reassuringly stable run that can be a bit clunky for heavier foot strikers but runs better at speed.

A decent, stable pair of everyday shoes without manhandling supports.
