Asics Gel-Craze TR-2 - £76
This shoe is the ultimate all-rounder for the gym. Feet are protected during high impact running with great cushioning and weights, boot camp and functional training are covered thanks to an outer sole promoting side-to-side movement. A mesh upper helps the air flow through and soft foam protects your toes rubbing.
The Nike Free TR 5 iD - £125
Every girl wants to look her best, even when she’s sweating it at the gym. This women's training shoe incorporates a breathable upper and lightweight, flexible outsole, perfect for quick changes of movement. Rubber pods on the heel and toe give it extra durability and the best thing is you can customise the design so you look cool as a cucumber during your gym session.
New Balance 711 Mesh - £55
A responsive CUSH+ midsole and forefoot flex grooves, coupled with thin TPU overlays on the upper mean this training shoe is contoured for good fit and flexibility. It also features a rolled collar for added comfort, making it the perfect all-round, everyday training shoe, and at £55 who can complain at that?
Protecting your feet from impact with GEL cushioning, this shoe gives a light, bouncy feeling with a lightweight structure. A snug and comfortable fit prevents slipping and rubbing and this shoe is built for endurance, so no matter how hard you train, your feet will feel cushioned and comfy. With a track record of more than 20 years, the GEL-Kayano is a firm favourite.
Reebok CrossFit Nano 4.0 - £85
Not over-priced by any stretch, the Reebok CrossFit Nano offers the perfect package of performance, durability and comfort. DuraCage technology creates a strong yet lightweight upper while RopePro protection wrap gives bite and support for rope climbs. Shock absorption in the forefoot and heel mean comfort during any workout.
There are some crazy looking trainers out there - as long as they're comfy and light, I'm happy.
I'm really not bothered about how my feet look at the gym, nor about customising my trainers. Fortunately I have big feet so I can buy men's shoes and pay a lot less!
Asics are my first choice every time - they're worth the price tag! Like Mike said though I've never yet gone for pink!
Not sure I like the look of pink shoes for men, though maybe I'm missing some modern trend?
This is great timing as I am on the lookout for a new pair. I like the price of the New Balance. Are they running shoes too?
