Trainers – The Fitness Edit

 All of us here at Shoetique have made that New Year’s Resolution – to get fit and healthy before next Christmas… So how are you getting on?

The girls in the office are all on the case, not a crisp packet or chocolate bar in sight and that’s pretty remarkable with our combined love of cake! We’ve been obsessed with trainer chat – comparing the different styles and becoming experts in all of the various benefits you get from each pair. So we thought we’d pass on this knowledge and point you in the right direction for trainers that get you motivated to move!

11883As part of the Flex Appeal collection at Skechers, these Next Generation Trainers don’t just look great but they do good for your feet too.

The Memory Foam cushioned insole provides support where you need it when walking while the FlexSole super lightweight flexible shock absorbing midsole ensures that pressure to your joints is alleviated.

They come in navy/black and charcoal/coral and have fast become a firm favourite amongst the girls in the Shoetique office. We’ve seen them rocked with jeans and leggings for all day comfort but we’ve heard a few of the girls have been taking them out to the gym or on walks because they are so comfortable.


Not your usual training shoe, the Go Walk 2 Hyper from Skechers moves away from the conventional trainer asthetic to bring you something more streamlined and stylish for your workout. Perfect for walking, these shoes won’t look out of place in your normal wardrobe, allowing you to get your walks in incognito mode.

 The innovative Skechers Performance technologies and materials used within the Go Walk 2 Hyper is specifically tailored for walking. The V-Stride technology features an angled outsole that compliments your natural walking gait whilst promoting fluid steps. You can also go sockless with these sophisticated shoes, the integrated Ortholite anti-microbial sockliner stops odor from building up. The Resalyte midsole is a lightweight component that works on absorbing impact with every step.

Available in Charcoal and Black/White these training shoes can actually be worn with jeans or dresses but we’ve heard they’re perfect for walking and yoga workouts.
