The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer — and you know what that means. It's officially outdoor running season. Whether you're training for a marathon or going on your very first run, you've got to have a quality pair of running shoes.

Running is a challenge in itself, which is why you don't want anything making a run unnecessarily difficult. That means shoes that are too heavy, unsupportive, or leave you with blisters. There are a lot of great running shoes out there, but if you aren't sure where to start, we recommend the Nike Epic Phantom React Running Shoe ($150).

The colorway of the Epic Phantom React screams, "Summer is here!" although we already know we'll definitely pair them with black leggings/spandex shorts. We also love that they're slip on, which means no more stopping to tie your shoe mid-run (although it's a good way to sneak in a little break). Plus, they have a sock-like fit and are made from Flyknit material, which means you're feet won't get hot and sweaty as you run.

Bottom line: we, you, all of us, need these in our closet. And if you're still not convinced about running outdoors, they double as a great sneaker for commuting, pairing with a cute suit (try Bella Hadid's look), and look great with your best athleisure wear.
