Choosing The Best Trainers For Running

by Travelling Peach

Running has fantastic health benefits. Not only does it help to keep you fit; reduce blood pressure and regulate stress levels; and boost your mood but, interestingly, new research shows that it can dramatically improve your memory. A recent study showed that, when groups of non-runners and runners were asked to recall information (e.g. routes on a map) that they had been given earlier in the day before being distracted by the researchers with other tasks, the runners demonstrated a substantially more accurate recall. Combine this with the fact that enjoying nature and smelling natural scents like pine, freshly cut grass and lavender can contribute to elevated feelings of happiness and help to prevent depression and there’s nothing more to say…. Where are our running shoes??

Running is a high impact activity so it’s important to wear running shoes specifically designed to combat this high impact and provide the correct support so that you don’t injure your Achilles heel, tendons or worse. Here are our top 3 running shoes as recommended by Personal Trainer Scott Laidler


1. Nike Free RN 2017 iD (£90)
These trainers are super-comfortable, supportive, and perfect for running. The mid-sole has been specially designed using new tri-star technology to expand, flex and contract with your foot with every step. Brilliant for preventing your body and bones from experiencing the full high-impact force when you’re pounding the streets. Plus, they’re made from light-weight, breathable mesh, helping to keep your feet cool, comfortable - and free from infection!

2. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 GPX iD (£114.95)
These trainers are lightweight and feature Nike Zoom Air responsive cushioning in the heel and forefoot – perfect for providing comfort and important protection to your heels and tendons during your run! They’re also a great option for all weather conditions and surfaces as they provide durable weather protection, flex groves and enhanced traction for extra grip and range of motion when running in wet weather.

We love these trainers because they can be personalized any way you like – whether it’s adding reflective treatments to the sole so that you can be safely seen during evening runs or adding your favourite motivational quote, they look great. 

3. New Balance Fresh Foam Zante V3 (£95)
These trainers are specially designed to be highly cushioned, flexible and light-weight. This facilitates greater shock absorption, smoother landings in the heel and reduced pressure in the forefoot, reducing the likelihood of injury and making them a safe and comfortable option for your run.
