👟 TRAINERS THREAD 👟

:disappointed:

Time to retire my Tailwinds. Loved those shoes but the material they use on the soles is so easy to ruin.

I’m really struggling to source some new trainers.

My go-to style is Nike Tailwind/ Pegasus/ Cortez - dark base colour with a bit of a brighter colour on the tick/ highlights.

Everywhere I’ve looked appears to have little but black/ white/ grey with black/ white/ grey highlights.

Can anyone help? I’m size 11.

These aren’t cheap and are maybe more colourful than you’d want…

I don’t hate them actually.

Maybe I think I’m looking for the wrong thing…

And £90 seems to be going rate for these.

I had these Tailwind’s last year but couldn’t seen them in an 11 anywhere

https://thesolesupplier.co.uk/ is really good for this - if you just search for the shoe you’re looking for, it comes up with all the variants that everywhere are selling, I’ve found it so useful in the past

This is exactly the kind of thing I was hoping someone would know about.

Thanks!

Have you tried Nike.com? Might sound obvious but they have colourful Pegasus in size 11 and you can also do design your own for less £££ than you might think

I feel like I have looked there but I’m now starting to doubt myself…

How annoying is it to find a trainer you like, only to then see that it’s not available in your size

(I appreciate I could buy the black ones, but the counter colour isn’t quite white, so they’re a no from me)

And now I’ve seen that they’re available in the US in yellow / blue

Decided to try out Karhu, very comfy on a first try

Went for a little meander around the shops at lunch. Nike store had these daybreaks considerably marked down. Will I/Won’t I… I shouldn’t.

I’ve got those but just warning, they’re very much a summer shoe. The mesh is just…mesh, so in autumn / winter you’ll end up with very cold toes / soggy socks.

Thanks. Definitely one of those id pick up now because of the decent price and break out in the spring.

Here’s an unhelpful reply…I picked up a pair of these in black at the start of the summer. I worn them once. I think I prefer the white version now.

This is a bit of a dorky question, but does anyone know of any cool/hype/fresh/whatever trainers that also offer good arch support? I normally go for skate styles but have been having some plantar fasciitis issues recently and could use something a bit more supportive. Was thinking something in the old school running show styles might work?

Not a shoe solution, but I was having plantar fascitis issues and I got one of those foot rollers and spiky ball things, and it’s been a total gamechanger. I use it in the morning and I don’t have foot pain all day!
