The running trainers that will make you want to exercise

Sometimes good gear is all you need to find your get-up-and-go...

There’s never a bad time to get in shape but finding the motivation to do so is far from easy. Emptying your bank balance on a gym membership, healthy food and a pair of on-point running trainers certainly makes the health kick easier to start and stomach. The right footwear, sitting and staring at you pristine in their box, is the perfect motivation to get up and hit the gym or pound the pavement; here are the pairs we recommend to get you started…

APL TechLoom Phantom trainers

apl-techloom-phantom-trainers

APL were banned from the NBA for providing athletes with too great of an advantage, a ruling which sent sales of the brand soaring and makes them a must-have in our eyes. The minimalist mesh design provides ventilation while neoprene tongues and collars protect feet during long runs.
