Find the best trainers for your running style, from treadmill to trail, with our reviews of the latest shoes
Tester Katie Finglass, 30, is a keen snowboarder and a gym bunny. 'I want to get into running because I don't do any endurance sports and my stamina definitely needs improving. I've always given up on running before because of sore shins.'
If you're new to running and don't want to be put off by niggling pain, this shoe, new from New Balance for summer 2010, is ideal. It helps stabilise the foot (especially helpful if you are an overpronator - where your foot rolls inwards) and has cushioning to protect your joints, too.
'These trainers fit so well and were really comfortable to run in - my feet felt cosseted! I've been told my feet tend to overpronate, so I appreciated the support this pair gave me.'
A great, lightweight shoe for neutral runners, this has more cushioning in the heel, plus extra bounce upfront for a springy run.
A neutral trainer, this light shoe provides great cushioning to minimise the vibration when your heel strikes the ground.
