What:
Nike Roshe Run

Why:
If you want a running shoe that doesn't look like a super-technical, multicoloured 90s nightmare, then you'll no doubt want to go for the Nike Roshe Run.

It combines a simple design with all the important requirements of a running shoe: a breathable mesh upper, a cushioned ankle collar and overall lightweight shoe designed to give you a superb level of impact protection.

Expert intel:
The Nike Roshe Run was only released into the wild two years ago but has already proved to be one of the most surprisingly successful running shoes out there, thanks to its affordability, simplicity and airiness.

If you prefer to keep things simple, grab your pair for £70 from JD Sports.
