types of running shoes

There are 3 different types of trainers designed depending on your foot arch type, leg axis, and type of running.


Neutral trainers have cushioning throughout the shoe to absorb shock.


Structured trainers provide cushioning and support to the arch in order to compensate for over-pronation. 

maximum support

Maximum support trainers prevent excessive inward roll (over pronation) and encourage you into the neutral position through maximum support throughout the shoe. We do not stock any maximum support trainers.

Visit one of our boutiques for a personal, informed fitting. Alternatively use the trainer guide to help you to find the perfect pair of trainers with the right level of support, or view all trainers.
