Trainers for Sport


We seek to understand the best ways for people in the United Kingdom to stay fit and healthy. Everyday we are inundated with advertisements from brands like Reebok, Nike and Adidas that promise health and fitness with their new products and trainers.

We published about this previously here.

Mike O’Neill, from The College of Podiatry, says serious back, knee and hip pain, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints (leg pain), traumatised toes and painful blisters are some of the conditions people wearing ill-fitting trainers may face.

We would like to ensure that we can make the best recommendations based on our research and study. This information can be used by the general population to inform their training decisions and, we believe, is the first step toward better public health in Britain.
