Bit of a weird one...I'm after some trainers to wear but not converse/superga types but sporty ones though not to play sport in! I think I want some adidas ones. Need something really comfy..anyone able to help? smile

Stan Smiths for something on the more casual end of the spectrum or NMD for something on the more sporty side.

Oh not quite Adidas but the Nike Roshe One or Airmax Thea Ultra Flyknit are pretty good crossovers to casual wear too IMO.

Thanks sorry I should have mentioned not Stan smiths and preferably dark in colour too.
I'll take a look at the Ines you've mentioned thank you xx

If you want really comfortable ones that you can walk all day in that look a bit sporty go to a running shop/specialist sport shop and get your gait analysed. Tell them that you need them for walking. Try on a few suitable pairs.

Yes depends what for, but I like my Nikes (Air Thea and Pegasus) for comfort but definitely not sport. I wear Asics Gel Kayanos for sport (and longish walks).

We think alike carrie.

OP, converse and supergas are too flat and offer very little support. Proper running shoes give support and cushioning.

I have a pair of nike Pegasus for casual. They are running shoes but I use more traditional Asics for that.
