There’s trainers and then there’s trainers. And we have just the pair…

When it comes to exercise, one of the most important pieces of equipment is of course your footwear. But when it comes to this, it can be a minefield choosing the right pair of trainers for your needs. And this is where comes in.

Sports Shoes

I was recently recommended the site and after a quick look around, it’s easy to see just why it’s so popular. They have over 120,000 products- ranging from running shoes and clothes to outdoor gear as well as handy tools to help you find just what you’re looking for.  Their ethos is “It doesn’t matter whether you’re an elite runner, weekend fell walker or gym enthusiast, that commitment and passion to be active is what drives us both.”

After a browse, I fell upon ADIDAS SUPERNOVA GLIDE BOOST 8 WOMEN’S RUNNING SHOES. With an RRP of £104.99 I knew these were going to be good. Supernova is known for its commitment to comfort for long-distance training and as I am looking to train for high-level fitness events (I’ve developed a buzz after recently completing Tough Mudder) I felt these would be perfect for my needs.

Sports Shoes  The Glide series has won Editor’s Choice at Runner’s World twice since 2014 and as soon as I slipped them on my feet I could tell just why. I felt energized and ready to run, empowered by the lightweight material and perfect grip round my feet. With a stack height of 27mm to 17mm and a 10mm heel drop they’re fairly high off the ground yet my feet felt supported; aided by an almost full length Boost midsole from the heel/ mid foot to the toe.

Adidas uses Continental tire rubber in the heel and forefoot providing great traction on a number of surfaces and whether I ran on pavement or grass they held their own. My run was smooth and comfortable and my trainers showed little sign of wear even after a number of long runs.

Sports ShoesBreathable mesh on the outside allows for your feet to breathe and welded overlays replace stitching from previous models helping to reduce potential irritation whilst retaining stability. Revolutionary boost™ technology offers the benefits of soft cushioning for optimal feel and responsive energy return to enhance running performance and I have to say I did feel like my running was improved. My posture felt better, my feet comfortable and it was one of the best runs I’ve had.

These trainers prove just how important footwear is during exercise and show just how much of a difference they can make. You can buy the Adidas Supernova Glide trainers here and view many more at
