1. 880v2

£84.99, New Balance, newbalance.co.uk

Designed for runners that clock many a mile, the centre beam design creates stability while the mesh upper helps to keep feet cool.

2. Gel excel 33

£125, Asics, asics.co.uk

Natural running has a growing fanbase and this style is designed to reduce the risk of injury for absolute beginners and those making a transition from other disciplines.

3. Pro Leather

£60, Converse, size.co.uk

This suede retro classic is perfect for those who want a shoe for everyday that will still provide support and cushioning for any off-the-cuff basketball sessions.

4. Trinomic

£60, Puma, asos.com

The Puma honeycomb cell-shaped technology has led to this range. Runners who appreciate the retro style combined with modern support have built up a strong fanbase.

5. RealFlex racer

£64.99, Reebok, footlocker.eu

This monochrome shoe boasts technical aspects developed for barefoot running, such as a thick sole and foam lining with a stripped-back design that will please minimalists.

6. Adizero adios 2

£85, Adidas, adidas.com/running

These featherlight running shoes have an air mesh to allow your foot to breathe. A moulded responsive sock-liner also helps to keep things cool.

7. Flyknit

£130, Nike, nike.com

Knitting together yarns and fabrics only where they are needed makes this shoe extremely light (a size 9 weighs 160g). And that can make a difference for those who race.

8. Garde High

£245, Y-3, 020 7434 2324

Basketball-shoe inspired, the cushioned, high-top design and ankle strap will provide support while the mesh panels provide ventilation so your feet will be as cool as they look.

9. LXVI, Graph

£65, Vans, schuh.co.uk

This new line from Vans sees the original sneaker developed into a more technologically advanced design with flexible yet sturdy soles, cushioning and comfort.

10. Breatho trail shoe

£69, vivobarefoot.com

Designed for off-road running, this shoe will allow your toes to splay and the foot to flex naturally as if bare. The ultra-thin outsole is designed to maximise grip.
