If you go in with an open mind and a willing heart there are always great running shoes to be bagged at a discount in the Cyber Week sales. However, what we really love is when deals appear on shoes that are already among our favourites, so there are no compromises to be made. You’re just getting a sweet deal on a shoe we rate as among the best out there.
Two such deals have emerged this Cyber Monday. Well, maybe two. We only spotted the discount on the excellent Hoka One One Mach 4 today. Perhaps the discount was available over Black Friday and we missed it. If we did, hands up – our bad.
The other top deal we’ve spied is definitely new for Cyber Monday though, with the Reebok Floatride Forever Energy 3 having an extra 20% knocked off its price.
Here are all the details on those two top deals, plus a few others that it’s worth considering before the sales end.
Hoka One One Mach 4 – Save 20%, Now £99
The Hoka Mach 4 is our second favourite all-rounder running shoe behind only the Saucony Endorphin Speed 2, and the Mach is much cheaper than the Speed, even without 20% taken off for Cyber Monday. The shoe has a comfortably smooth yet fast ride that makes it a great pick for every kind of run, from your easy plods to all-out races, and it’s a top option for marathon training.
Reebok Floatride Energy 3 – Save 36-40%, Now £45-£48
At its full RRP of £75 we rate the Energy 3 as one of the best budget running shoes you can get. At the sale price of £56-£60, which it was available for on Black Friday, it’s outrageous value. And at £45-£48, the price you can get it for today with the code EXTRA20, it’s simply a steal. The Energy 3 is a durable all-rounder that’s best used for base training, and it’s the perfect cheap option to round-off a shoe rotation so you can then spend loads of money on a carbon racing shoe. Speaking of which…
Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% – Save 40%, Now £155.98
This deal is only available to Nike members, but you can become one in a matter of minutes if you hand over your email address. In return you get 25% off (almost) everything on the Nike site (use the code GAME21 at checkout), including a rare and sizeable discount on our favourite carbon plate racing shoe. Most colours of the Alphafly are included and that includes the shoes that are already discounted. There are some Alphaflys that have been reduced to £207.97, which then drops to £155.98 with the code, a huge saving for those on the hunt for a carbon super shoe this Cyber Monday.

Nike ZoomX Invincible Flyknit – Save 38-44%, Now £89.98-£98.98
The Invincible has the same soft and springy ZoomX foam in the midsole as Nike’s top racers the Vaporfly and Alphafly, and it delivers one the most enjoyably bouncy rides of any training shoe. The downside is normally that it’s at the expensive end of its category at £160, but you can pick it up for under £100 in the Nike Cyber Monday sale if you’re a Nike member (if not, it’s free and easy to sign up). One colour of the women’s shoe is already reduced to £115.47, which then drops to £86.60 with the code GAME21 at checkout. On the men’s side there is a colour reduced to £131.17 with plenty of sizes available, and the price there drops to £98.98 with the code.
New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v11 – Save 25%, Now £101.24
The 1080v11 is a robust and comfortable shoe that we rate as a great option for newer runners, since it has the cushioning to protect your body when you start out, but also the pace to help you enjoy races if and when you start tackling those. It’s fairly expensive at £135, so we often recommend bagging the previous model in sales, but right now you can get the latest version of the 1080 at a 25% discount in the Sports Shoes Cyber Week sale.
