Here Are the Submission Guidelines for the 2020 Sneaker Awards

As SELF editors, it’s no surprise that we spend a lot of time discussing, debating, and testing sneakers. After all, sneakers are a foundational piece of gear—essential for just about every type of workout. And perhaps more than any other type of fitness gear and apparel, footwear can be highly personal and downright polarizing. Some editors want all the cushion, while others swear by a lightweight fit for their fastest runs.

But with so many options available, we also get that it can feel overwhelming anytime you start searching for a pair of workout shoes. That’s where SELF’s Sneaker Awards come in. We cut through the noise to find the very best sneakers for your particular needs.

To select the winners, SELF editors will rigorously and methodically test each shoe under consideration during a variety of activities. We’ll keep tabs on key factors like fit, comfort, performance, and style.

We are currently accepting submissions for the following types of sneakers: shoes for running (stability, neutral, minimal; plus shoes designed for everything from road to trail running), indoor and outdoor cycling, walking, weight lifting, all-day/leisure, and hiking.
