6 most comfortable pairs of trainers that'll make you feel like you’re walking on a cloud

Stylish sneakers that won’t hurt your feet

Carla Challis

Comfortable trainers are not a given. Hands up who has suffered at the hands (or feet) of their painful if fashionable sneakers? Blisters, sore arches, rubbing on the toes – if they’re hurting, they’re not working. Comfy trainers, we need you!

Since trainers have become a constant companion in our wardrobe with daily walks and park dates, rather than just left for a couch to 5k run or HIIT workout, you need a pair of the best trainers for women that won't hurt your feet, pronto.

We’re big fans of FitFlop, who use clever shoe technology to cushion and comfort your feet, support your arches and are flexible enough to give your feet breathing room too; the stylish trainers pair well with pretty dresses, loungewear and even tailoring.
