TOP 3: CROSS TRAINERS

By Sam Higgins, 23 May 2017

We all have different ways of getting our kicks when it comes to fitness. So it’s probably best you ensure your kit is capable of coping with multiple workouts, in multiple environments – starting with these three pairs of trainers, which are built for maximum versatility.

The statement pair

Although not strictly ‘running’ trainers, these Nike Train Speed 4 sneakers certainly take cues in statement styling from their sprint-ready siblings. Most notably, the bold, cross-hatch design on the grey and white upper.

But it's not just for show – along with the flywire cable detailing, the cross-hatch design actually makes the structure lightweight, giving you faster mobility, while foam midsoles offer extra cushioning.

The all-purpose pair

Got gym at 1, a kickabout with the lads at 4 and a run at 7? Don’t worry, because these adidas Crazy Power trainers have all the features needed to handle it all. Firstly, the black silhouette, with its chunky brown sole and fuss-free design, mean they have the ability to disguise themselves as your usual kicks when you're in between activities.

But, more importantly, they boast a breathable upper that won’t weigh you down and a thick sole for added support. All of which is accented by the neatly displayed signature three stripes.

The minimalist pair

The most understated of the three, Reebok Training Fires are the perfect blend of style and substance. The sock-like cuffs aren't just one of this year's hottest trainer trends – their padding will hug your ankles and keep your feet comfortable even during a lengthly workout, too.

Aside from that, the minimal design is a strong combination of lightweight padding, neat lacing and grooved soles for added traction, whatever the terrain.
