Are these trainers a yay or nay?

Both extremely comfortable and a load of foot and ankle surgery means I live in trainers. But they are both a bit out there compared to what I usually buy. The blue are Nikes, the gold New Balance.

Prefer the blue.
They are both cool but the gold is a bit too much for me. And I have shiny silver trainers grin.

I prefer the blue too. Also I have new balance trainers and I find them fairly narrow fitting, with the foot problems I'd go for the blue ones.

Yeah, I'm wearing a 7 in the blue and an 8 in the gold, and I wear a lot of 'normal' NB trainers, so not worried about the fit. I'm just longing for something a bit nicer than trainers that look like sports shoes, but then I'm panicking when I get them on my feet! I've just tried a pair of gazelles as well, but they are catching one of the pins in my ankle a bit.

Definitely the blue. Don't like the gold at all.

I like the gold. I got married in gold trainers

I like the gold. I've just bought silver ones!

Pretty divided then smile. I could keep both of them, because they will get a lot of wear, it doesn't have to be either/or. I guess I was more worried that I'd just look an idiot or that they were so awful people would be snickering at me! I had 5 pairs delivered this morning to try, and these two are the front runners in terms of comfort.

I like both. I've just bought some bronze New Balance and I want some pale suede trainers!

I like the blue OP.

Thanks to this thread I have Air Force Ones on order in grey. Oops!!

I prefer the blue ones. Hope your feet get better soon!

Not loving either, sorry, but think I prefer the gold overall.

Pale grey suede would be nice.
