Clockwise from top left:
HOKA Challenger ATR 6, £130 Featuring a ‘strategic lug pattern’ to help give smooth transitions and a soft ride. Add that in to the mix with HOKA’s signature mid sole cushioning & you’ve got got yourself some seriously superfly shoes to carry you through your run.
Merrell Moab Speed, £130 While always delivering on tech and comfort, I often struggle with Merrells’ aesthetic appeal but these Moabs are really doing it for me. They’re also vegan friendly, packed with eco credentials and feature Vibram technology. Exhaustingly good.
ASICS GT-2000 10, £120 Extra tech features in the form of FLYTEFOAM™ an additional layer of cushioning designed to put a more responsive rebound in to your step.
Salomon Alphacross 4, £99 Reinforced Rip Stop fabric is a nice touch here, helping keep your trainers from getting too shredded on those tracks and trails.
Adidas Terrex Agravic Flow 2.0, £140 Superlight, great grip and some eco credentials in their semi-recycled make up, what’s not to love?
Nike Pegasus Trail 4, £144.95 Featuring an extra high ankle gaiter for extra coverage, these Pegasus are perfect for those going truly in to the thick of it
New Balance Foam Arishi Trail GTX, £70 The cheapest from our selection, but still offering amazing traction and support with their lightweight ‘FRESH FOAM’ midsole putting you as at home on the asphalt as you will be in the field.
