2. Puma Complete Nightfox TR
A padded heel, tongue and ankle. A 3D sockliner for inner comfort. A midsole cushioning system. Puma’s off-road option offers a comfortable experience, especially for those with high arches. Reflective styling means you’ll stand out in the dark, too, so we really are starting to run out of excuses.

3. Nike Zoom Structure+ 16 Shield
Nike have given their trainers a winter overhaul: highly reflective and water-repellent material has been added to six of their premium styles. The Structure+ is one such shoe, and boasts a cushion and Phylon (Nike’s own foam) co-moulded flexible dual-density sole. Apparently, that means it’s comfortable.

4. Asics Gel-Volt 33
A stripped-back offering made for serious runners planning to put in the miles. It is designed to work with your foot to enhance your natural motion at every point in your stride. The bright colours, meanwhile, are designed to ensure you stand out in the dark.

5. VivoBarefoot Neo Trail
Multi-directional lugs on the sole of this model increase traction, while a puncture-resistant layer provides a lightweight feeling that still offers protection. The Neo Trail, then, will give you a ‘barefoot’ running experience that will survive any terrain.

6. Adidas Supernova Riot 4
Adidas’ Traxion outsole boasts maximum grip in all directions, while the Formotion design adapts to the ground as you run – all of which means a comfy run that should see you stay on your feet at all times. That will keep Ray Wilkins happy, if nothing else. And, at the end of the day, isn’t that the real point of all this?
