Trainers are not all made the same. If you’re heading to the gym to work out, then you’ll need shoes suitable for that. If you’re going to be running, you’ll need a pair of specialist running shoes. If you just want a pair of trainers to wear whilst knocking about in jeans, then you’ll care a lot more about the style and comfort aspect that whether they’re designed for sport. In this blog, we’ll look at some of the best options available.
Adidas Originals – Gazelle
Gazelles date back to the 1960s when they were originally designed for general training and handball, depending on the type of sole they used. The general training version had a white rubber outer and the handball version was designed with a gum rubber outer. Today’s model is based on the early 90s variation with it’ white tongue and signature suede upper. A trainer classic and available in countless colours.
Fila Disruptor II Premium
These Fila trainers are exactly what I’d call the ugly trainers trend. They are the type of shoe your dad would wear to mow the lawn or take you to the playpark. This trend always has its fans, and these are about the best example available in the shops just now. They have exceptional foot arch support and have a certain orthopaedic shoe vibe. These gold versions are a statement shoe. Beware they will make your legs look shorter due to their style, but if you want to commit to the ugly trainers trend, these are amongst the best you can buy.
Nike Air Force Ones
Nike’s iconic basketball shoes with their air technology are stupidly comfy. They are available in countless variations including low tops, mid cut and high tops as well as more variations including waterproof versions for hill walking amongst others. The range of uppers ranges from leather and suede through Nike’s flyknit to seamless pearlized synthetic leather in their foamposite uppers. With a huge variety, no matter your tastes you’ll find a great pair.
Converse All Star Low
These Converse all stars are great for wearing with a dress or wearing with a pair of jeans for a relaxed look. They come in a huge variety of styles and finishes including canvas, suede, jersey and leather and camouflage finishes. They are generally a low-rise shoe with various sole combinations. Including “lift soles” that are semi platform in style and with lower soles called the “dainty versions.”
