If you're heading on a hike, we have found the best off-the-beaten-track trainers for you

Everyone’s wearing trainers, celebs from Miranda Kerr to Anne Hathaway are rocking their own stylish pairs inside and outside the gym.

Here at Fit & Well we think it’s time to invest in a new pair – after all nothing incentivises working out like some new eye-catching kit.


When it’s time to buy new trainers you can’t just pick any pair off the shelf. You need to make sure that the shoes you choose are right for the type of workout you’re doing.

Different design features dictate whether a trainer is better for high intensity interval training (HIIT) classes or hiking or simply your walk to work. Here we’ve selected our best off-the-beaten-track trainers for you, so you can lace up in style when you head outdoors.



What to look out for:

  • Choose a trainer that has a suitable grip – this means a deeper tread to provide traction when travelling over rough rocky terrain and tree roots.
  • Trainers with harder wearing and more durable uppers are key, as they won’t mind a few bumps and scrapes on your advnetures.
  • Choose a lower profile shoe that will respond quickly to changing terrain.
