    What are folks preferred style of trainers.

    Have always worn Adidas and generally kept to classic retro type ones. Or converse all stars.

    I can’t find a pair I like and need some new ones.

    Get ya favourites posted up to give me some ideas.

    Trainers. Funny.

    In America they call them sneakers. Here in Canada, running shoes.

    Edit- I’m more into value than brand these days.

    Was going to say trainers/pumps.

    No idea why they would be called sneakers.

    Think I am going to order these.

    Haven’t owned a pair of Nike’s since I was 16. Had the original hurricane ones in brown leather. Since then they’ve all been Adidas campus types. Not had anything remotely modern looking.

    Just comfortable and casual. Have a pair I used for training. Not the kind or wear to the pub or just popping to a shop etc.

    Just thought they were a brand for skateboarders. Didn’t realise they were still going.

    Have never owned a pair of gazelles. Never like the toe on the them. @Chief is the connoisseur of gazelles.

    I just fancy a change current pair are Adidas retro tennis trainers.

    Go to m and m direct site mate

    I am into the Asics type these days as the running shoes are imo the most comfortable , for me at least.

    I like my trainers and have pretty much most brands. From Nike and Adidas to converse Asics and sergio tachchini (sp). Even have some Armani trainers

    But I am always wearing the Asics that I own.

    5 kicks commandments.


    Nike = Black boy kicks

    Addidas = white boy kicks

    Shoes with no socks = bumbandit kicks

    Sandals/Slides with socks = peedo/acid attacker kicks

    Crocs = vegan **** kicks

    I've only worn Adidas for the last 30 years until last Xmas got a lovely looking pair of white Armani ....hardly wear them tho as no where near as comfy as gazelles.

    Yeah I don't like the "designer name" stuff as much as the proper shoe/trainer makers

    I don't wear the Armani either and I saw a pair of really nice Hugo Boss ones but didn't get them as I knew they would be uncomfortable.

    I bought a pair of More Miles running shoes a while back just as a cheap work pair and they were quite good and comfy. Had never heard of the brand but they specialise in marathons and running gear.

    There's nothing wrong with gazelles but they're kind of the vanilla Adidas
