I’m looking for some decent, supportive trainers for day-to-day wear. I’ve got a great pair of New Balance 860 running trainers, but a bit reluctant to wear them every day and get them knackered. Just looking for something not awful looking, and lightweight.
I like these. Very comfortable, lightweight and machine washable.
I got a pair of Nike Epic Reacts on sale on the nike website (Around £60) and love them. So comfy, look good and fairly plain so doesn’t look stupid wearing them at work.
I would look at Adidas trainers with Boost technology. They are my go to for daily wear. They do tend to be a bit more expensive but for the comfort they provide I am happy to pay what they charge!
Thanks all, will investigate
Have found Puma NRGY+ to be very comfortable, fairly discreet (I have a nice dark green colourway) and extremely reasonable price point. Good every day wear, probably an entry level running/jogging shoe.
Depends what you want to spend really. All the big names have good options. For some thing more robust look at a walking/hiking trainer or an approach shoe again loads to chose from.
I like a pair of solomon speedcross trainers they are trail running trainers but the look good with trackies or jeans alike and are good and sturdy and comfy in my opinion.
Bringing this back up, tempted by a pair of Allbird Mizzles, anyone else an Allbirds wearer and would recommend
Yes, I have a pair of Mizzles. I think they’re great. They’re comfortable and offer more stability than the wool or tree runners (of which I also have several pairs), and they’re fine for wet weather - though I probably wouldn’t run across a wet field or jump into a puddle with them.
Just one suggestion: if you’re intending to wear them when it’s wet, and your journey involves any walking through grass or less-than-clean streets, I’d recommend opting for a dark sole - otherwise they can look a bit grubby.

Normally it’s because you quoted the entire post directly above
Thanks for clarifying, @Rat_au_van!
Cheers, there probably going to become my daily wears, so good advice
On the Allbirds front - I had a bit of a bad time with them, the heel would constantly slip around and rub quite badly, and the wool got a bit fuzzy in a week or two (sooner that I’d anticipated!)
The good side though is they have a no quibbles return, so even if you find an issue that you didn’t see in the shop, they’ll refund you
