Do Topo Athletic Run Bigger Or Smaller Than Altra?

Most of the sizes of Topo Athletic are the same as that of Altra. However, there are a couple of them that varies.

First of all, some of the sizes that are available in the women’s version of Altra running shoes are not present in Topo Athletic running shoes.

In the men’s version, the situation is the opposite. Some of the sizes that are available in Topo Athletic are not present in Altra.

There is an anomaly with the size 44 (EU) of Topo Athletic and that of 44.5 (EU) of Altra. Lengthwise both are similar, however, the numbering is different, and also, this is the last size that is available from Topo Athletic in the women’s version of the shoes.

However, the interesting thing about this size is that they are represented by the same numbers for Altra and Topo Athletic for the US and UK regions.

A similar anomaly exists for the men’s version of the shoes also. The 47.5 (EU) of Topo Athletic is equivalent to the size 47 (EU) of Altra s both of them have the same length.

But, for US and UK regions, are represented by the same number for both the companies.

Special features…

  • Updated and softer midsole
  • Higher stack height
  • Standard heel fit
  • Padded extended collar and tongue for added comfort.

Midsole

New Balance 1080v11 Vs 1080v12 - Midsole Differences

The midsole of 1080v12 is made from Fresh Foam X as is 1080v11. However, the midsole of New Balance 1080v12 is softer than that of 1080v11.

This is made possible by updating the midsole mapping. This helps you to have more foam in wider areas and also it improves the flexibility of the narrower areas of the shoe.

This is why the midsole of New Balance 1080v12 is softer than that of New Balance 1080v11.

Another factor that improves the softness of the midsole is the amount of foam that is present in the midsole.

The midsole of New Balance 1080v12 has 2 mm more Fresh Foam X in the midsole than New Balance 1080v11. This is both in the forefoot and the rearfoot and provides you with additional cushioning and comfort.

New Balance 1080v12 has retained the laser markings of the New Balance 1080v11 and this has helped it to retain and improve its flexibility.

Also, having the New Balance Green Leaf standard, at least one midsole or outsole has a minimum of 3% bio-based or 5% recycled based material.

How are these updated materials will help you?

Having more softness in the midsole will help you to stay more comfortable for longer runs. It will reduce your foot fatigue and will help you to run further.

New Balance 1080v12 will now provide you with a more cushioned and comfortable ride.

Even if you have foot problems like plantar fasciitis, Morton’s Neumora, tailor’s bunion, or bunions like me, this cushioning will keep you comfortable.

Since New Balance 1080v12 uses more recycled materials, it will help you to reduce your overall carbon footprint on this planet.

What is Fresh Foam X?

Fresh Foam X is an updated version of Fresh Foam which is made after taking input from hundreds of athletes.

Initially, there was some skepticism with the Fresh Foam, but its ultra cushioning and your less tired feet and legs own over the skeptics.

Now this Fresh Foam is updated to Fresh Foam X and provides you with excellent cushioning and comfort even on the longer rides.

Drop, Stack, Weight

Stack, Drop, Weight Differences of New Balance 1080v12 and New Balance 1080v11

The midsole of New Balance 1080v12 has seen some improvement and it has become softer and cushier. One of the main reasons for this is the increase in stack height for both the forefoot and the rear foot.

Although the drop of both of these running shoes stays the same at 8 mm, the stack height has changed.

New Balance 1080v12 now has a heel stack of 36 mm and a forefoot stack of 28 mm whereas New Balance 1080v11 has a heel stack of 34 mm and a forefoot stack of 26 mm.

Related: New Balance 860 Vs Asics GT 2000: Which One Will Suit You?

An 8 mm drop is a standard drop that many running shoe companies are maintaining. Also, it a good for runners with Achilles issues. Due to the good response from its runners, New Balance has retained this heel drop in New Balance 1080v12 and I think this works pretty well for this shoe.

In terms of weight, New Balance 1080v12 has gained significantly for both the men’s and the women’s versions.

The men’s version has become heavier by around 1.1 oz or 31 gm and the women’s version has become heavier by 0.5 oz or 14.17 gm

New Balance 1080v11

Women’s size 8: 7.8 oz/221.13 gm

Men’s size 9: 9.2 oz/261 gm

New Balance 1080v12

Women’s size 8: 8.3 oz/235 gm

Men’s size 9: 10.3 oz/292 gm

Related: Saucony Guide Vs New Balance 860: Which One Is Best For You?

New Balance 1080v11 was certainly not a light shoe and with New Balance 1080v12 it has become even heavier. However, if you compare the weights of the New Balance 1080v12 with other shoes in the cushioned category, you will find that they all weigh approximately the same.

This is the tradeoff that we have to make if we want a cushioned and comfortable shoe and I’m happy with the weight of the New Balance 1080v12.

Widths

New Balance 1080 is one of the most popular running shoes on the market. It is great for runners who want a daily trainer with good cushioning.

The previous version of New Balance 1080 did not have different widths available. However, with New Balance 1080v12, New Balance has changed that.

New Balance 1080v12 is available in different widths and is able to fit runners from narrow to wide feet. This is great news for runners with narrow feet, because, there are not a lot of shoe choices when it comes to narrow feet. The same goes for the extra-wide feet.

Related: New Balance Size Chart Vs Nike

Now New Balance 1080v12 has 4 widths available for men and 4 widths available for women.

New Balance 1080v11

  • Men: Standard
  • Women: Standard

New Balance 1080v12

  • Men: Narrow, Standard, Wide X-Wide
  • Women: Narrow, Standard, Wide, X-Wide

Also, most of the sizes for New Balance 1080v12 have all the widths available. So, you will be able to find your right fit whether you have a narrow fit or extra-wide feet.

Also, if you have super extra wide feet, give New Balance 1080v12 a try. The fit of this is wide in general, so the X-wide width should be able to accommodate your super extra wide feet.

Outsole

New Balance 1080 v12 Vs 1080 v11 - Outsole Differences

New Balance did not change much in the outsole of 1080v12 from 1080v11 to retain the same kind of grip and durability.

However, if you observe closely, you will find two subtle changes to the outsole.

Although the general durable rubber coverage of the outsole is the same. However, the silhouette of the blob-shaped structure (lugs) of the rubber has changed.

To be precise, the structures have become bigger.

Related: New Balance Arishi Vs 1080: Which One Is The Best For You?

New Balance 1080v12 - Larger lugs

Another change that I loved was the part where the midsole of 1080v12 is exposed to touch the ground. In New Balance 1080v11 that part touched the ground.

With New Balance 1080v12, New Balance has opted for a concave structure there, more like, they have scooped that area to form a shallow pocket-like structure. This ensures that it doesn’t come in contact with the road.

New Balance 1080v12 - Scooped Out Concave Midsole area of the outsole

I think these changes were implemented to:

  • Improve the overall durability of the shoe.
  • Improve the flexibility of the shoe.
  • Provide a smoother heel-to-toe transition.

The outsole changes make 1080v12 a more attractive choice. If you want to run long miles and are uncomfortable that your cushioned shoe wears out too easily, go for this one.

It will last you for around 500 miles, and if you get habituated with this shoe, I personally think you will be sticking with it for years to come.

Upper

New Balance 1080v12 Vs 1080v11 - Upper Differences

Whether you are talking about 1080, 680, 880, or 990 New Balance has mastered the art of making comfortable uppers.

Not that every type of upper is the same, but they have maintained the comfort, throughout their models.

With New Balance 1080v12 also, they have only done minor changes to make it more comfortable and breathable.

The upper has wider shallow air-pits on the upper which improves the overall ventilation of the shoe and also makes the upper marginally lighter.

Where New Balance 1080v12 stands out from New Balance 1080v11 is that it is made from at least 50% recycled materials. This is helping New Balance to achieve its 2025 target of having all their cotton and leather from preferred sources and at least 50% of their polyesters recycled.

New Balance 1080v11 Upper

The upper of New Balance 1080v11 was made with synthetic engineered mesh which was breathable and stretchable.

With New Balance 1080v12, the upper is made with Hypoknit technology and recycled materials. This mesh has improved breathability and stretch and is adapted to fit a wide variety of feet.

It has a hard material lining the side of the shoes and the toe area. This protects your feet and you will not get injured from those sudden rocks and debris.

New Balance 1080v12 Upper

Overall, these are some good changes that New Balance has come up with 1080v12. Although they seem to be only cosmetic changes, what made up the upper has completely changed.

Fit

Although New Balance 108v11 was true to size, New Balance 1080v12 fits a bit large. The toe-box feels to be wider even for the standard size.

This is a good thing as your toes will be easily able to spread and you will feel much more comfortable running.

This change of with is not there are the back and the fit how a standard fit s for any of the other New Balance models including 1080v11.

Heel Counter And Collar

New Balance 1080v11 heel counter and tongue

New Balance 1080v11 was a great shoe, however, its ultra heel didn’t sit well with many of the runners.

The common complaint that I heard was there was heel slip and also the extended pull tab didn’t provide that much Achilles support. The material was thin as well.

New Balance changed that in 1080v12 and in now you have a more standard heel. This is what I mean…

New Balance 1080v12 Heel Counter and tongue

Although the heel area is slightly elevated, it cradles the heel as it used to previously. The comfort level of this heel is excellent.

The padding is great and the extended pull tab is also well padded providing you with a good amount of Achilles support.

Also, I did not deal with heel slip with this shoe and the ankle area felt stable and comfortable.

This is a great update going from New Balance 1080v11 to New Balance 1080v12.

Tongue

The cushioning of the tongue of both New Balance 1080v11 and New Balance 1080v12 is decent. The cushioning did not change with the new version. They are comfortable and you will not feel the laces digging in.

Also, for both the models the tongue is gusseted. This means they are locked down in place and are not going anywhere when you run.

This is pretty convenient if you ask me. I love this as it gives peace of mind that the tongue will shift to a side while running.

Laces

New Balance 1080v11 Laces

New Balance 1080v11 Laces

The laces of both versions of New Balance 1080 are made of polyester material and are flat laces. They did not change the laces and the laces remained tied while running.

I like flat laces more than round ones. They have more surface area and they remain tied and secured when running. Like the round ones, they don’t come undone and are great while running.

There are overlays that keep the lace holes secured and they don’t get torn up when pulling the laces or during the stretching of the laces during running.

New Balance 1080v12 Laces

Running Shoes Similar To New Balance 1080

New Balance 1080 is a good running shoe and after the last couple of updates they have become one of the best neutral running shoes on the market and New Balance 1080v12 is no exception.

What I found was the cushioning is absolutely great and the additional room in the toe area makes it so much better.

With the update in the collar padding and the heel area, this has become one of my favorite.

However, I understand that not everyone will like New Balance 1080v12. So we wanted to suggest a couple of alternatives to you.

In this article, we have shared some of the alternatives to New Balance 1080 whose comfort level is nowhere lesser than that of New Balance 1080.

[aff_disclosure]

Ingrown toenails can be very painful. Dealing with them can be quite a challenge.

It takes a lot of research and trials and errors to find a running shoe that will fit you perfectly and will support your toenails.

That is why we have come up with a list of running shoes that will provide you with comfort and confidence to run with ingrown toenails.

This list is by no means an exhaustive list, and the least it can do is to minimize the amount of research that you need to do.

Also, Brooks Glycerin is our top choice for this purpose. However, if you are an overpronating runner, then go for Brooks Glycerin GTS.

Now let’s check out the shoes that we have selected as the best runnings hoes for ingrown toenails.

Our Favorites

  • More ground contact.

1. Brooks Glycerin 19 – Best Brooks Running Shoes For Ingrown Toenails

Brooks Glycerin 19 is a very good running shoe for ingrown toenails. It is well cushioned and comes with a stretchable upper.

It is true to size, which is very important if you have ingrown toenails. It will provide you with a snug fit, which is not too tight or too loose.

This will not let your feet slide and you will not keep on bumping with the walls of the toe box.

This helps you to avoid any further pain or injury that comes with ingrown toenails.

The toe box of Brooks Glycerin has a decent depth. This makes your toes not hit the ceiling of the toe box and this provides you with additional relief.

Also, the softness of the cushioning of Brooks Glycerin is also very good. It provides you with excellent shock absorption and comfort.

The transition is also very smooth and will provide you can do it with much ease. This also doesn’t let the running put additional pressure on your toes causing you to wither in more pain.

The longevity of this shoe is decent and is excellent for long-distance running.

Also, as mentioned above, if you are an overpronating runner, you can go for the GTS version of Brooks Glycerin. This is good even if you have flat feet.

 PROS

  •   Certified PDAC A5500 Diabetic shoe and has been granted the APMA Seal of Acceptance
  •   Snug fit.
  •   Roomy toe-box
  •   Great step-in comfort.
  •   Can be used right out of the box.

 CONS

  •   Expensive
  •   For some, the length seems short.

2. New Balance 1080v11 – Best New Balance Running Shoes

New Balance 1080v11 is our second choice for a running shoe for toenails. It is cushy, soft, and provides you with excellent comfort.

The midsole of New Balance 1080 is made from Fresh Foam X which is a softer and lighter material than the more traditional Fresh Foam.

This is why it is excellent for your ingrown toenails, as they will provide you with excellent cushioning and shock absorption. This will reduce the stress that your toes will have to go through and will minimize the discomfort during running.

One good feature that this shoe has and will help you further is the ultra heel setup that 1080 has. This will hold your heel in place and will also provide an additional guard to the Achilles region.

This doesn’t let your heel slide front or back and doesn’t let your toes collide with the toe-box walls to aggravate your problem.

Also, the toe-box will provide you with a snug fit and will not cramp or pinch your toes. This is a favorable situation for your ingrown toenails which becomes more painful in a cramped situation.

Other than the favorable running environment that these shoes provide, you will also have utmost comfort in other aspects also, while you are running in them.

They are lightweight and excellent at shock absorption. The foam is very stable and provides you with the right amount of feedback while running.

However, as with any cushioned running shoes, these shoes also is a bit less responsive. So, you may not feel that kind of snappiness as you feel in the short distance or racer shoes.

These shoes are good for long-distance and for those who are looking for comfort.

 PROS

  •   Good for long shifts.
  •   Ultra heels will not let your feet slip forward.
  •   True to size.
  •   Puts almost no stress on your toes.
  •   Stylish.

 CONS

  •   Expensive
  •   Not for high arches.
  •   Difficult to adjust the laces.

3. Adidas Ultraboost 22 – Best Adidas Running Shoes

Adidas Ultraboost is a good running shoe when it comes to running with ingrown toenails. It is stretchy, cushy, and will provide you with the right amount of support while running with Ingrown nails.

Also, 50% of this shoe is made from recycled material making it very eco-friendly.

Although comfortable, I felt like the cushioning under the balls of the feet has been reduced in this version.

Does that put more pressure on the ingrown toenail?

I didn’t feel there is much difference in shock absorption than its previous version. So, it may not put any additional pressure on the ingrown toenails.

However, if you have a severe case, then it may. Again, in that case you may actually have difficulty in walking as well, so a running shoe may not be you additional problem.

One thing that I’ve noticed is that, there is a bit of a squeeze near the ankle area. This is there to ensure that there is no heel-slip. Then again, so some this may become uncomfortable.

I like this ankle squeeze as it will not let the shoe slip and that way will provide a good protection against injuries.

However, these shoes are not fit for gym or cross fitness as they don’t provide any rigid support. But for running, they are one of the most comfy running shoes out there, even with your toe nails.

 PROS

  •   Very comfortable.
  •   Minimal heel-slip.
  •   Excellent shock absorption.
  •   Sock-like fit.
  •   Use of recycled material for the reduced carbon footprint.

 CONS

  •   Expensive
  •   Feels bulky.
  •   Looks basic.

4. Asics Gel Kayano 28 – Best Asics Running Shoes For Ingrown Toenails (Overpronation)

When we are discussing different running shoes for ingrown toenails, we cannot miss out on discussing Asics Gel Kayano.

Asics Gel Kayano has been a consistent performer throughout the years. It is comfortable, stable, and is durable.

It provides support to the overpronating runners as well, which is one of the primary reasons that we included this running in this list.

Until now, all the shoes mentioned for ingrown toenails are neutral running shoes. However, the ingrown toenail problem is not present in only neutral runners. Both pronating and under pronating runners are also susceptible to this problem.

Also, if you are an overpronating runner, you may be suffering from bunions as well or may have problems with your knees. This will cause more trouble to your ingrown nails as the second toe and your running shoe wall will put pressure from two sides.

Result?

You will have a very painful ingrown nail and an equally painful big toe joint.

So, you need a running shoe, which has a wide or spacious toe-box area and a narrow heel area to lock in the heels.

This is exactly what is present in the Asics Gel Kayano. The toe-box felt wider than the previous version and doesn’t put much pressure on the bunion area. (Trust me I know, dealing with them and torn shoes in that area since childhood)

However, the pressure from the second toe can only be minimized by using something like silicone bunion support.

They will separate the big toe and the second toe. The additional pressure on the ingrown toenail will also be minimized in that way. (In such cases only using the best possible shoe will not help).

However, one more thing that is important to check is the depth of the toebox. If the ceiling is too low, it will keep on hitting on the ingrown toenail causing additional injury.

I found the height of the ceiling to be just right and it doesn’t keep on hitting on your toenails continuously.

Moreover, these shoes have additional gel cushioning in the forefoot and the rearfoot. These are very shock-absorbing and reduce the pressure on your forefoot considerably and don’t let the ingrown toenail situation aggravate.

 PROS

  •   Excellent step-comfortable.
  •   Lightweight.
  •   Comfortably wider fit.
  •   Heel locking system.
  •   Stylish.

 CONS

  •   Stability felt a bit less than previous versions.
  •   Narrow heels may not suit every type of user.

5. Gravity Defyer G-Defy XLR8 Run

Gravity Defyer running shoes are not as popular as their Brooks, Asics, New Balance counterparts, however, they should be.

These shoes are very comfortable and will provide you with excellent comfort while running. 

That is for people with normal feet without issues…but you have ingrown toenails, then will it work?

Let’s find out…

When I was researching, I found that Gravity Defyer, themselves recommend these shoes for ingrown toenails which is a bit unexpected.

Actually, if you do a bit of research, you will find that not even the biggest brands take ownership of their shoes helping you with a foot problem.

So, that was something, I was happily surprised about.

And I mean, that is not too unexpected, given the kind of shoes that they build. These shoes are very comfortable and have excellent midsoles.

They are shock absorbent and had hardened TPU full-perimeter shank. This provides you with protection against any midfoot trauma and hyperflexion injuries.

This means, your chances of getting hurt in the toes which already have ingrown nails are slim.

Also, they don’t put much stress on the toes during toe-off thus not putting additional pressure on your ingrown nails. They have a rolling forefoot design that helps you with this.

Another important feature is the width of these shoes. They are comfortably wide, even for their narrower versions. It gives your enough room for your toes to spread out during landing and toe-oof.

This also means, your toes will not get squished when wearing these shoes and you will not end up with painful toes due to ingrown nails.

Speaking of being big, these shoes are a bit bigger than the regular running shoes available in the market. So, it’s better to go a half size down when ordering for a pair.

One more thing to keep in mind is that, even if you have wide feet, go for something like medium width with these shoes. This should fit you better, rather than the wide shoes.

Although these shoes are good with your ingrown toenails, they are not devoid of flaws.

There are a couple of things that I did not like about these shoes.

First of all, the tongue of these shoes is thin. Also, they will move to the left or right side while running. Sometimes, there may be the problem of the tongue scrunching up.

Another problem is, the lace holes are made in the fabric and don’t have any metal or plastic rings around them.

So, when lacing the shoes, putting in the laces, and pulling them to adjust is a bit problematic. Being made in fabric, they offer more resistance if you try to do anything with the laces.

Although these are not big issues, they are there. However, they don’t seem to deal breaker and you can get a very good ride in these running shoes, even with your ingrown toenails.

 PROS

  •   Very comfortable.
  •   Wide toe-box area.
  •   Free Orthotics.
  •   Good for standing all day.
  •   Technologies to prevent foot trauma and injuries.

 CONS

  •   Not true to size.
  •   Lacing the shoe is a bit tedious.
  •   A flimsy tongue that may shift or scrunch up.

6. Salomon XA PRO 3D v8 – Best for Trail Running With Ingrown Toenails

If you are a trail runner who suffers from ingrown toenails, Salomon XA PRO 3D may be a good choice for you.

It has a spacious toebox with decent depth to accommodate your ingrown toenails without having to deal with additional pain.

Ingrown toenails curl inside your toe and take on a more pointed hard structure. This makes the upper of the shoe in front of the toenails get pierced easily.

However, the material of Salomon XA PRO 3D is strong enough to withstand this and will hold its structure for a longer period of time.

Also, the overall build of this shoe is solid and it will not wear down easily. If you are just going for a walk, its treads can withstand more than 500 miles. However, by then the treads will wear off too much, and also, the profile of the shoe will start showing marks for replacement.

With this version of the shoe, I observed that the collar area gets worn down more easily and the plastic may start showing. Also, I did not like the stitching near the tongue which tends to come off easily.

However, the quick lace system is still my favorite and gets the lacing done pretty quickly. Also, the lock-like structure of the quick lacing system doesn’t break down as easily as in some other trail running shoes like Adidas…

However, they are not waterproof shoes and if you want one, you can go for the GTX version of these shoes.

Also, it doesn’t have a steel toe and is made from hard plastic, but nonetheless, it is durable.

The cushioning of Salomon is also good and is great at shock absorbing. What I found is, if you have to deal with small pebbles or rocks, your feet will not feel that sudden shock or pain.

Also, this doesn’t leave your already troubled toe with more pain and a more aggravated situation with your ingrown toenails.

 PROS

  •   Very comfortable.
  •   Excellent with shock absorption.
  •   Can be used for hiking except on very technical terrains.
  •   The tongue pull loop is sewn with the upper side of the tongue to avoid any tripping hazard.
  •   Overall comfortable.

 CONS

  •   The collar padding may get worn off easily as compared to the previous model.
  •   There may be some creaking.
  •   Not true to size.

7. Altra Torin 5 – Best Zero-Drop

As per Altra, these zero-drop shoes are the Swiss Army Knife of the road running shoes. They are cushy, comfortable, and have a good amount of space in the toe-box.

But will they work on your feet?

Or more importantly, will they cause any more damage to your ingrown toenails? Let’s find out…

Although we will look into if this shoe keeps you comfortable while running with ingrown toenails, we will also provide you a glimpse of the other features of these shoes.

First of all, what I liked most about these shoes are the amount of space that shoes have on the forefoot.

When you land on the ground, your toes spread out. If you don’t have enough space in your toe-box, then your toes will feel cramped and it will put too much pressure on the toes and your ingrown toenails.

After some time, you will feel pain in your toes due to this added pressure. However since Altra Torin has a spacious forefoot, it will not give you that cramped feeling and will not add to the discomfort to your toenails.

Also, the depth of the Altra Torin toebox is decent. The upper will not put pressure on your ingrown toenails and will not aggravate your condition.

The cushion of the midsole is spread uniformly from the back of the heel to the tip forefoot. This midsole is squishy and excellent at shock absorption. This will provide the right amount of cushion to your toes and will keep you comfortable while running.

Even with your ingrown toenails, you will be able to feel the comfort and no additional shock will be passed on to your toes and in turn your toenails.

Also, the outsole has sticky rubber and the upper is also comfortable and breathable. This will help you to have a comfortable ride, despite your ingrown toenail situation.

 PROS

  •   Very comfortable.
  •   Excellent with shock absorption.
  •   Like running on clouds.
  •   Improved upper to last longer.
  •   True to size.

 CONS

  •   The tongue is flimsy and may rub against your feet.
  •   The durability of the outsole is not great.

8. Mizuno Wave Rider – Best Responsive

Mizuno Wave Rider is one of my favorite running shoes of all time. It is comfortable, responsive, and is great for running almost any kind of distance (only road running or treadmill running).

However, I did not feel that it would be a good fit for someone who is suffering from ingrown toenails.

But I guess I was wrong…

The new version is spacious enough for you to have comfortable running even with ingrown toenails.

Also, the cushioning of this shoe is very good. It is shock-absorbing and responsive and will not let any kind of shock pass to your forefoot.

This is a bonus as this will help you to have a comfortable running experience with your ingrown toenails.

Also, the upper of the shoe is made with double-layer material and will not break early with the constant pocking by your ingrown toenails.

Overall it will a good choice if you are a neutral runner and are suffering from ingrown toenails.

However, if you have overpronation, you can always go for Mizuno Wave Inspire. They have almost the same materials as Mizuno Wave Rider but are great at providing you with additional stability for overpronation.

Although a good shoe for ingrown toenails, it has its own share of flaws.

First of all, the sizing has changed and it is not true to size anymore. You have to order half size bigger than the one you wear now. For example, if you are a 10.5, you will have to go for an 11.

Also, the arch support also feels a bit changed and that may be a bit of a problem for runners on the heavier side.

 PROS

  •   Very responsive.
  •   Good shock absorption.
  •   Can be used for everyday running.
  •   A great choice for heel-strikers.

 CONS

  •   Need to order a half size bigger for a good fit.

9. ON Cloudflyer Running Shoes – Excellent cushioning

I’m always in awe of these ON shoes. They are extremely stylish and edgy to look at are bound to turn people’s heads.

They are not only stylish but very functional as well. They are comfortable, cushy, and are excellent for road running.

With this version of ON Cloudflyer, you get one of the cushiest road running shoes that are perfect for any kind of running.

Also, the overall structure of this shoe is spacious, especially in the toe box. You will not feel squished when you land or during toe-off and also when you are just standing.

This makes it very comfortable for someone with ingrown toenails. They will not feel additional pressure or added pain due to this.

Also, the material of the upper is also double layered. This actually enhances the lifespan of your shoes and it will not develop holes prematurely due to ingrown toenails.

This model of ON shoe has maximal cushioning. This provides you with excellent cushioning and is great for even long-distance running.

The support that shoes provide is not up to the mark and not every overpronating runner will have a good time in these.

However, they do cater to a large group of stability runners and provide them with good support. If you have severe overpronation, Brooks Beast or Brooks Ariel may be a better option for you.

 PROS

  •   Excellent cushioning.
  •   Good with shock absorption.
  •   Very stylish.
  •   Durable.

 CONS

  •   The fit varies from version to version.
  •   Overpronation support could have been better.

10. Saucony Kinvara 12 – Best Value For Money, Good for Underpronation

Saucony Kinvara has stood the test of time and is one of the first shoes that was adapted for running.

It is a very budget-friendly shoe and is great as a daily trainer and as a longish distance running.

However, can you really run in these pocket-friendly shoes with your ingrown toenails?

Let’s find out…

Saucony Kinvara is true to size running shoe and has a good amount of width to adjust for toe splays.

This releases any pressure on the toe during landing and toe-off and will provide you with a good amount of comfort while running with ingrown toenails.

In any closed shoe environment, ingrown toenails become uncomfortable. Any pressure on the toes will make the nails dig more into the softer flesh.

That is why, if you have a wider toe-box, it will let the toes expand easily and your feet can get adjusted easily.

However, one thing that might not be that much supportive is the height of the toe box. The overall depth of the toe box is good but for normal feet.

However, ingrown toenails create additional bulges and need a bit more room at the top.

So, Saucony Kinvara will be a good choice for those who have a mild case of an ingrown toenails. With someone with a big protrusion, may not work.

 PROS

  •   Comfortable.
  •   Budget-friendly.
  •   Lightweight.
  •   Good for daily training.
  •   True to size.

 CONS

  •   Can be a bit noisy.
  •   Lack responsiveness.

FAQs

Can running shoes cause ingrown toenails?

Yes, there is a possibility of your running shoes causing ingrown toenails, especially if it is tight on the forefoot. However, this can be avoided by selecting running shoes that have a more spacious forefoot and a good toebox depth, so that the pressure on your toes is minimal.

Tips for selecting running shoes for ingrown toenails

  • Shop your running shoes in the evening when your feet are the largest.
  • Walk around in the shoe store wearing the running shoe to check for any tightness in the forefoot.
  • Jump ahead wearing the shoe as this will give you a proper understanding of toe splay while running.
  • Wear a sock and then try on the shoe.
  • Go for a wide shoe if the need be.

How do you prevent ingrown toenails in shoes?

To prevent ingrown toenails in shoes, go for wide shoes and try to avoid any shoes that will put additional pressure on the forefoot. This means avoiding shoes with a high heel-to-toe drop.

Preventing ingrown toenails may not be as difficult. However, if you follow the above guidelines, you should be fine.

However, in certain situations, you may have to prioritize what you want to focus on, or you may have to a bit compromise.

For example, if you suffer from Achilles Tendonitis, then having a good heel-to-toe drop is critical. However, if you suffer from ingrown toenails as well, then having a high heel-to-toe drop is detrimental.

In such cases, you have to go for trial and error. Since you need a minimum drop of 8mm for Achilles Tendonitis, you have to choose something that has this drop and has a wide toe box.

You may have to deal with the situation in a similar way if you have ingrown toenails and calf problems.

How can I permanently fix an ingrown toenail?

You cannot permanently fix an ingrown toenail as this kind of change is permanent in nature. You can, however, make some changes or take some precautions to minimize the pain.

Here is a couple of things that you can do to minimize the effect or pain from ingrown toenails:

  • Keep your foot clean: Use warm soapy water or a bucket full of apple cider vinegar water to soak your feet and pat dry them.
  • Use some antibiotics inform as an ointment or oral pills as prescribed by your doctor.
  • Use proper shoes.
  • Use toe protectors.
  • Consider toenail removal: In extreme cases.

How do you get rid of an ingrown toenail overnight?

You can’t get rid of ingrown toenails overnight. You may consider removing it with the help of a professional, but that’s it. You cannot get rid of it overnight.

Also, once you get it, it’s better to take proper precautions so that they don’t get infected.

If you get an infection nonetheless, it is better to get yourself checked by a doctor rather than to self-medicate.

This may cause you more harm and may aggravate your condition.

Brooks Adrenalin GTS 21 Vs. Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 – A head to head comparison

In the above sections, we have covered a brief overview and some broader differences between Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 and Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21.

In the following sections, we have compared each of the major parts of these two versions of the same running shoes in much detail.

Outsole

The outsole of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 has little to no change and is almost like the outsole of GTS 21 being copied over.

However, if you observe closely, there is a very slight change on the outer side of the outsole. It has three separate ‘plus’ signs along the lateral side of the shoe. Also, there is a single plus sign on the center of the midsole, just between the heel and the forefoot.

This adds to the flexibility of the shoe a bit and provides you with an improved grip.

There is no change from the material point of view and apart from this minor change, there is no other change in the shoe.

It has retained that 2 and a half flex grooves in the forefoot and provides you with similar flexibility to that of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21.

Midsole

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 also uses a 100% DNA LOFT cushioning system much like Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21.

However, the geometric pattern that is present on Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 is more uniform on the lateral side, unlike Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21.

However, as always, Brooks has tried to be consistent with this version of Adrenaline as well and the cushioning is similar to that of Adrenaline 21.

Much like Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 also has the GuideRails for providing you with excellent overpronation support.

This keeps your feet in the line of motion, thus minimizing the chances of injuries on the knees, legs, and hips.

It also has retained the segmented crash pad and the Omega Flex Grooves. This provides you with the much-needed flexibility without compromising the cushioning of this shoe.

Upper

The upper of Brooks Adrenaline 22 is also very well executed. There is not much of a change from Brooks Adrenaline 21, but they are excellent with the overall structure and the feel.

It has a similar skeletal structure at the heel to grip your heels well and also, it will not let your heel slip when you are transitioning.

Another thing that Brooks is great at is the heels collar and the height. It is very smooth in Adrenaline 22 as well and is well padded.

The tongue is gusseted and will provide your ankle with excellent stability. This will help you to avoid any kind of ankle-twisting and you will have a worry-free run.

Also, in this version, Adrenaline still has the flat laces that were introduced in the previous model that is Adrenaline 21. However, the length of the laces doesn’t seem to be as long as the previous version and may not be as per your liking.

However, the mesh is very breathable and will keep you cool and comfortable throughout your running session.

Weight

In terms of weight, there is a slight change in Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22.   

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 weighs around 10.2oz /289.2g for women and 10.2oz/289.2g for men.

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21 weighs around 9.1oz/258g for women and 10.4oz/294g for men.

Price

The price of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 is slightly more than that of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21. The change in price is not huge and is around $10. This may not be a huge deal if you are someone looking to use the latest model.

Otherwise, you can go for Adrenaline 21 and enjoy a similar, dependable and comfortable performance.

In the above sections, you will find almost all the similarities and differences between Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21 and Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22.

Midsole

The midsole of Asics Dynablast is made from Flytefoam Blast. This is a lightweight midsole material that will provide you with excellent cushioning and responsiveness.

It has laser cuts near the heels and this improves the flexibility along with the style quotient. Also, the midsole is slightly protruded at the back. This gives it a very edgy look and some added cushioning to the heel area.

This foam will provide you with responsive propulsion and a soft landing.

The midsole of Asics Gel-Kayano is also made from Flytefoam Blast. This lightweight foam will provide you with durable cushioning. Also, this foam is environmentally friendly.

For better impact absorption, this running shoe has a rearfoot and forefoot gel cushioning system. This is a silicone-based gel-cushioning that is excellent at shock absorption.

Also, it has the Dynamic DuoMax Support System. It reduces your overpronation by controlling the movement of your foot. Also, it will lead to easier heel-to-toe transition.

It has the Space Trusstic that reduces the weight of the sole. It improves the stability and structural integrity of the shoe.

Also, the gender-specific trusstic is tuned to men’s and women’s specific biomechanical needs. This provides you with protection and a smooth ride.

Also, the I.G.S or the Impact Guidance System will create a smooth and balanced heel-to-toe transition.

Upper

This will definitely be a deal-breaker if you are like me and don’t want to spend a fortune on a running shoe.

If you are going for any of these running shoes and have overpronation, then the choice of your running shoe will be Asics Kayano.

However, if you are a neutral runner, then your choice of running shoe will be either Dynablast or Kayano. In that case, if you are a short-distance runner, go for Dynablast. Otherwise, Gel-Kayano will be an excellent option.
