Steve says "From the moment I put a pair of On trainers on, I've never looked back. In fact, I am on my 5th pair now. The tag line is 'run on clouds' and that couldn't be more accurate. I feel I could run forever in these."
Laurence says "They're so light, but still so comfortable. The carbon plate enables gait efficiency to improve cadence and speed. I have hit speeds on the treadmill that I never have before wearing these Hoka trainers."
Nigel says "They offer me the best support with terrific grip on both muddy and rocky terrain. I always add an ironman inner sole for added protection for longer distances. These have carried me around many ultra events in the lake district."
Conor says "Always been a fan of a more minimalistic training shoe that was versatile enough for lifting and lighter running and this shoe marries those principals perfectly. They have a nice arch built in and a decent enough heel to help with squatting. but on the flip side, the heel isn't high enough that it takes away feeling grounded for deadlifts. These are the shoe I tried after many others and never looked back."
Jack says "These comfy enough to wear all day but perfect for heavy lifting because of the width of the sole. They allow your toes to spread to give you a firm best when under the bar. They're also super light so you can do hiit style training in these with no problems. I have had plenty of pairs now and will have plenty more."
Becci says "Although my preference in the gym is to just wear no shoes at all. I believe that a shoe should be foot shaped, not a foot to be shoe shaped. We get sensory feedback through the soles of our feet so things like balance can be massively improved. That being said, my advice is to break yourself in gently with barefoot shoes as it takes a while for your feet to build strength."
Lucy says "Anything that comes in fluro green gets my vote. But not only do these look cool, the carbon foot plate gives you the extra power to push through the most savage of spin classes."
Molly says "Comfiest trainer around, I feel like I'm walking on air. Great for coaching all day or cardio. Plus, they come in so many colours that one pair just isn't enough."
