tried and tested.
Take a step ion the right direction and treat your feet to a new pair of workout shoes SAUCONY TRIUMPH ISO, PS125 (www.saucony.co.uk) PROMISING 20% more cushioning than previous versions and a 'sock-like' feel, thanks to the ISOFIT uppers which morph to the shape of your feet, these Sauconys certainly sound comfortable - and they feel it too. They're supremely soft, and really do rapidly mould to my feet so there's barely any rubbing, and trainer and foot move as one. At 225g, they're super-lightweight and possibly the most cushioned trainer I've tried; like trotting through cloud. Suitable for road and track surfaces but not waterproof.
ASICS GEL-SONOMA WOMEN'S TRAIL RUNNING SHOES, PS68 (www.gooutdoors.co.uk) THERE isn't anything quite as mundane as plodding along the pavement but you can easily liven things up by going off-road. You just need to make sure your shoes provide the right support and traction and you can't go wrong with these. Asics have come up with a trainer that cushions against shock so they feel snug, supportive and soft beneath the entire foot. The high abrasion resistant rubber makes it hardwearing so you can run over rough terrain without fear of wear and tear. And the purple and yellow design looks great too.
ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST TRAINER, PS130, (available from February 11 from www.adidas.co.uk) PROMISING to be 'the greatest running shoe ever' is quite a big claim, but, actually, it's quite a well-founded one. The new Adidas Ultra Boost has 100% of its midsole made from the brand's 'revolutionary BOOST foam', which means greater 'energy return' (or the ability to plod on a bit longer, to you and I). And incredibly, it works: my normal run instantly feels easier, quicker and less tiring (I even went an extra couple of km), with the added bonus of no awkward 'wearing in' that you often get with new trainers A seriously good pair of running shoes.
