With the 37th London Marathon taking place this weekend, if you’re taking part – you’ll need to make sure you’re fully equipped with the right gear – remember it’s a marathon not a sprint.

We’ve curated the best trainers to wear if you’re running the Marathon below – you’ll need it!

Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit

The sportswear giant’s latest offering to the footwear game, equipped with a Flyknit upper for enhanced comfort, Flywire cables to lock the foot down and a full-length air bubble underfoot.

Nike Flyknit Racer

Nike Flyknit Racer Multi 2.0

Nike’s famed running model has been a popular sneak since it was first introduced a few years back. Again, Flyknit covers the upper, Flywire cables lock the foot down, and a low-profile Phylon midsole provides a next level of comfort.

adidas Ultra Boost


The German retailer’s Ultra Boost model is perhaps one of the most popular of the Boost series. Constructed using the brand’s signature Primeknit material, the adidas Ultra Boost is built for running.

adidas Pure Boost

adidas’s new Pure Boost iteration landed earlier this year, boasting a one-piece Primeknit upper with an innovative new tongue to reduce pressure on the midfoot and provide a next level of comfort. Underfoot, the brand’s Boost sole retains its place alongside an all-new lacing system.
