Moving on to check out what Adidas has to offer…

By Katie Garner

After falling over twice during my ladies matches on Wednesday, due to my misshapen and grip-less trainers, the trainer search has become my main mission once more. My birthday has come and gone and I now have the necessary funds to invest in a decent pair of trainers. After investigating Reebok options (check out previous blog piece), I decided to head to the Adidas website to see what they had instead, just to check out all my options. Here are my top choices so far…

  • The Nice-Colour, Nice Price trainer: Women’s Climacool Chill, £55.00,en_GB,pd.html

Immediately eye-catching in one of my favourite shades of purple, I couldn’t resist looking at these lovelies! The Climacool aims to keep your feet cool with whatever sport you attempt, while still looking stylish and trendy! The air mesh provides maximum breathability, and synthetic overlays add extra support. The outersole offers high level durability, and the Coolever heat and sweat management is definitely something I could do with! My only concern with these is that the grip looks a bit flat, and although I think these are meant to be running trainers, the grip is one of my main concerns (as well as looking totally awesome!).

  • The Sale Shoe: Women’s Sumbrah, £36.00,en_GB,pd.html

These trainers aim to be the best general all-rounder, with leather upper for a soft feel, air mesh tongue for breathability and cushioning for all the comfort you need. The non-marking rubber outsole would be useful for fussy sports halls that look down on the average trainer. Although these are fitting in with my general colour scheme that I have been opting for, I’m not 100% on the look of the trainer, although the grip seems to have a bit more about it, which is definitely a plus point. They are cheaper, but I think they look cheaper as well, so not sure if these will be the ones.

  • The Flashy Trainer: Women’s adiZero Tempo 4, £80.00,en_GB,pd.html

These caught my eye because of the fiery flash of red and orange across this white and purple trainer, and the grip is definitely more what I’m looking for, with a more sturdy appearance.  These are lightweight running shoes, weighing a mere 224g, but they still feature the usual cushioning and support that you would expect as well as technology that enables your trainer to adapt to whatever style ground you are jogging on, to create a smooth ride. They definitely look the business, and at £80, cost the business too and although they tick all the practical boxes, I think I’m looking for something a bit more loud in my trainers this year. White was so last season!

Let me know what you think! Am I being too fussy in my trainer hunt? What ones would you opt for?
