    Inov 8’s are my favourites for running in.

    As a dedicated lifelong wearer of trainers, I’ve admitted that I’m getting on a bit and invested in a pair of New Balance..

    Very comfy and seem to be lasting forever with a gazillion choices of colour and nice special editions if you shop around

    New Balance 577. Best trainers ever made. Hand made in UK too. I’ve pretty much constantly had a pair in one colour or another for the last 20years.

    I have always bought Adidas but recently decided to try a pair of New Balance 574’s. The New Balance are so comfortable that i will not be switching back to Adidas in an hurry.

    Think I’m on my 15th Pair?

    Doesn’t help they have a factory outlet 5mins from the office in Warrington.

    Adidas Busenitz are worth a look at, skate shoes that have an old skool look.

    I’d really love it if they re-released the Rekord trainers as these are a firm favorite of mine.

    Gazelles?
    Yes, always.

    Samba, only ever acceptable in black leather and if you’ve actually been to a football match.

    Marathon – make you look a bit French and not in a good way. Otherwise excellent and give the impression you might occasionally break into a trot.

    Stan Smith – Along with the Wimbledon and Diadora Borg Elite, the only acceptable white training shoe.
    See postmodern/ironic use of Green Flash for confirmation, if any were needed.

    Nike? No.
    Puma? Football boots, not trainers.

    New Balance are fine on a gentlemen of a certain age, as are Vans.

    Inov8’s were great until you had to employ someone to help you choose which shoe you needed.

    Merrell are worn by bedwetters, North Face by snobs and Keen by people whose thighs rub together.

    An idiosyncratic expression of my non conformist, “stick it to the man” attitude.

    After years of not really wearing any trainers at all, I quite fancy a colourful pair of Adidas Gazelles.

    Anything else I should consider?

    Asics for me. Or should I say Onitsuku Tiger.
    Comfortable and I don’t care what anyone thinks. Although a 16 year old daughter of a friend said she was ‘liking’ them. How many of you can say that eh? 😛

    I had these first time around, schweeeet.

    Everything posted so far is a pub shoe. Do you want pub shoe or trainers?

    Pretty much live in New Balance, favourites are 996 but have got a bit of a collection, 570’s, 1300’s etc, have a pair of Saucony for running that are alright.

    New Balance for me If I have the choice….sometimes I don’t care but if the choice is there I’d have New Balance. They have such a good range and not chavy like Nike and some other makes….I’d day they are like the Skoda of trainers, Nike and Addidas more your Golf or Audi A3

    I think NB are more like an old Astra SRI, cool in the early 90’s but people have now realised they’re a bit shit.

    Merrell are worn by bedwetters….

    I refuse to be called a bedwetter by someone who cannot work out how to buy an Inov8.

    Now if you excuse I need to go change my adult nappy.

    My good friend who works for a so very, very cool retailer (where the yoot actually vet you as you enter the store to ascertain whether they’ll take your money) says it’s all about the Adidas superstar. dlx model only. UK made Nb good. U.S. made Nb good also.
    Vans are now off trend, which is good for me cuz they’re cheaper!

    SaxonRider – yes, but only if you wear them under your cassock.

    All of the retro shoes are rubbish. The shoes they are imitating (the ones we used to run in, in the 70’s and 80’s) were all rubbish but they were the best around then. Why people would pay top dollar for such crap is beyond me.

    I’ll only watch it if you promise that he’ll be amazed and repeat the answer to every question that’s asked.
