The shoe fits


Cross-trainers are lightweight and tech-filled. Man Machine rounds up eight of the best

  • The shoe fits

    Adidas Adipure Trainer 360

    This is great for anyone who seeks variety in the gym. Hardest workers

    will love the odour-destroying sockliner.


  • The shoe fits 1

    Nike Free Trainer 5.0

    A shoe that works with you in training. The bands support lateral movement and the ‘Free’ sole flexes for natural foot motion.


  • The shoe fits 2

    Adidas Adipure Trainer 1.1

    You’ll reap rewards if you’re brave enough to try these. Our daring tester loved them for floorwork, but avoid the treadmill.


  • The shoe fits 3

    Reebok CrossFit Nano U-Form

    The only shoe on this list that you bake in the oven. Seriously. For weights and resistance, these are heated to mould to your feet.


  • The shoe fits 4

    Asics GT-1000

    A popular choice from Asics, the GT-1000 is a durable shoe with the brand’s Gel cushioning pushing this model into the elite.


  • The shoe fits 5

    Under Armour Micro G Toxic Six

    They look ostentatious, but the skills back them up. The laces here are offset to reduce pressure on the top of your foot.


  • The shoe fits 6

    Vivobarefoot The One

    Described as “the ultimate in-gym barefoot performance shoe”, this is one of the most ‘minimal’ trainers around.


  • The shoe fits 7

    New Balance 890v3

    Great looking, mostly designed for neutral running, but adept at anything gym-based due to their comfort and versatility.
