Faas 300 trainers by Puma- Built for an effortless toe-off and great stability on impact, these might just persuade you finally start training for the Marathon.

New Balance 890 trainers -The 890 trainers feature impressive foam cushioning while claiming to be 10 percent lighter than your average Nikes.

Tomotak trainers by Y-3- The Y-3's design couldn't be more simple and to-the-point; the slip-on style adds to their light-as-air appeal.

Gel-Speedstar 5 trainers by Asics- The Asics Gel-Speedstar is a great blend of aesthetic design and ultralight breathability.

Climacool Ride trainers by Adidas- They're the kind of shoes that'll grab the attention of the hard-to-impress cool kids and the even harder-to-impress fashion crowd.
