"Never buy another bad running shoe"


That's the promise of RunRepeat, where "134,867 runners have reviewed, ranked, and compared over 1,000 running shoes."

From the website:


RunRepeat is run by geeks.

One of us ran around the world, another ran a marathon in 2:30, and a third was a 1500m Olympic games participant.

For each shoe, we spend 15-30 hours to research technologies, upgrades, read user and expert reviews, and run in the shoes ourselves.

To stay unbiased, we never include our personal opinion.

To make things simple, each running shoe gets a score from 0-100 called the RunScore.

The higher the score, the better the reviews.
