They’re also, if you haven’t already noticed, extremely yellow. They’re probably the yellow-est trainers we’ve ever seen. If you’re a fan of yellow – and you must be, because you stopped to read this and haven’t stopped – then there is simply is no better option. Remember that extremely Nineties diner all the Saved by the Bell kids hung out in, with all the zany wall motifs? A lot of different factors go into buying the right running shoe, and top tier trainers don’t come cheap, so it’s worth putting in the research.

We want you to get the best from your trainers and so we build them with durable materials and so you can depend on your women’s shoes lasting. We like the sunset-to-dusk colourway on these Columbia trainers, but not as much as we like the price. You don’t find many trail runners this good looking for south of a hundred, and while they boast a relatively simple construction compared to some much pricier competitors, they’ll serve you well in challenging terrain. The mesh upper is flexible while still maintaining a structured fit, and it’s satisfyingly breathable too. The midsole, meanwhile, is well cushioned and offers impressive stability. They’re also part of a small but esteemed group of shoes on this list that we’d wear casually.

That means you can focus all your energy on sport, without worrying about pain or injury. The carbon-plated design itself is fairly identical, as are the outsole and midsole . Not a departure from Nike’s previous offerings, but a triumph nonetheless.

The roomy toe box ensures comfort, while the midsoles absorb shock and reduces muscle fatigue. Comfortable, rugged and understated in design, the ultra-grippy Salomon Cross Pro 2 is a great option for anyone who finds most trail shoes to be unnecessarily clunky and fugly. Helps that they look like the kind of shoe Batman would wear to boot a henchman’s shins in with, too. We like the beachy colourway on these signature trail sneakers from Canadian brand Norda – squint your eyes, and it looks like a bird’s-eye-view of the sand, sea and foam. But they’re designed for far harsher terrain than that, with Vibram soles offering plenty of traction. What’s more, every pair of 001s are cut by lasers and stitched by hand, with sustainability at the heart of production.

And now, a great tiger print colourway from Nike’s Blue Ribbon Sports offshoot. Price and other details may vary based on product size and colour.

The latest in Saucony’s barnstorming Endorphin range is almost impossibly light, but despite its minimal weight, it still offers the stability and cushion you need to put in some serious miles. Saucony claims it will perform as well over long distance as it will in sprints or middle-distance runs, but just putting the shoe on makes you feel faster. It sits snug and offers incredible comfort straight out of the box. 10% of the purchase price from each pair is donated to the Breast Cancer Research.
