Top 10 Best Running Shoes under 2000 in India (August 2018)

We all need a new pair of running shoes if our current pair of running shoes have worn out. Some of us who run quite frequently have to change their running shoes every 6-9 months to ensure they don't get any injury.

Buying a new pair of running shoes after every 6-9 months can be a costly affair for some people. To save your time and money, we have done the research for you and shortlisted the Top 10 best running shoes under 2000 in India.

But before that, let me try and answer a common question that I get (and I am sure even you may have this in your mind right now).

Would a running shoe under INR 2000 be good?

And the answer is - it depends.

But let me try and give you some reasons you should consider getting a running shoe under 2000.

For people who are into running, shoes can worn out pretty quickly. A low priced shoe can be a good replacement every once in a while and is also light on the pocket.

While with expensive shoes (the likes of Nike and Adidas) you expect the quality to be great, with shoes under 2000, you should NOT look down upon it as low quality. Sometimes, you get a sturdy high quality shoe under 2000 as well.

In our list, you'll find that companies such as Nike and Adidas are missing, but includes Lotto, Fila, Puma (and even Reebok). It doesn't mean these companies shoes are low quality, it just means that they are serving customers who want cheap running shoes within a reasonable price point.  

You'll also find that some shoes are available at a huge discount. This is common in the shoe retail business as they try to clear stock. In such cases, you can get a really high-quality shoe for a cheap price.
