Can anyone recommend trainers with really solid sole that aren't too grim?

I have a foot fracture and am finally out of my air boot (hurrah - massive air punch). BUT, I have to wear shoes with thick, non-bendy soles. Having looked through my collection of footwear it transpires most of my trainery type things are v. soft on the sole and flexible so no good. Biker boots weirdly more bendy on the sole than I'd have thought too (although there must be some more sturdier ones out there…). I need to wear these things for a good month, so ideally not something uber GYM would be best. Can anyone suggest any makes/models? Slightly random post, I know….. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Try an Adidas trainer with a flat sole eg Gazelle, Samba, Spezial, Beckenbauer or Trimm Trabb.

Are they all quite non-bendy? If you are sure that is great and I might just order online. Talk about a speedy response! I love the power of MN.

Ha ha - Nike Air Max taking me out of my comfort zone…. mind you anything better than the white Asics gel numbers I'm sporting now….. Nike Blazers I like. Can anyone vouch for nice non bendy sole? Looks quite chunky so imagine must be fine…..

Superb. Many thx, awfuldaughter; have ordered the blazer in a rather good deep red.
