Running really is the first sport and one of the easiest to take up (disregarding the fact that the act of running itself is hard AF). All you need is a pair of running shoes, a healthy dose of motivation, and open space (though there was that story about a guy running an entire marathon on his balcony during quarantine).

If you’re looking to stay fit while gyms are still closed in many cities around the world due to coronavirus — or you figured you’d save some money on the gym membership — you don’t really need the best-in-class running shoes. Unless you’re competitively running marathons, there’s no need to buy Nike’s new Alphafly NEXT% or whatever carbon fibre-plated sneaker is being touted as the next big thing.

What’s most important is that you have a pair of shoes that are right for your running style, at a price that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. So, to help you get started, we’ve put together a list of some of the most affordable running shoes on the market right now.
