Nike Pro Combat Shorts Review
I think most people my age spend their disposable income on ski passes, purchasing a car, new dirt bikes, video games, or other things that I don’t have too much of an interest in. What I do love (surprise surprise) is SHOPPING.
FOR WORKOUT CLOTHES.
I seriously believe that I have one of the nicest workout gear collections ever. It’s not something that I’m trying to brag about – I mean, I don’t have a car, or a snowboard, or an expensive musical instrument. But I DO have great workout kit. And since I spend about 50% of my life in it, I want it to be AWESOME.
One of the great things about having so many workout clothes, is that I can give honest feedback and reviews on what I love, what I don’t, and why. And this post is not sponsored, I just love these shorts.
The first items to review on my list is the Nike Pro Combat Shorts
with a 3” inseam. I own 7 PAIRS of these bad boys, and I did own a eighth until I somehow lost them. I am 99% sure these shorts were originally made to be worn as compression shorts underneath a loose pair of shorts (or in my case, rugby shorts), but I’ve never been one to follow the rules.
What do I wear my Nike Pro Combat Shorts for? They’re amazing for Muay Thai and kick boxing. I prefer to have minimal fabric getting in my way, and these are perfect for that. They have great stretch and movement, so I can sweat up a storm and fully hit my range of motion for all exercises.
Not only that, but they come in amazing colors and patterns. They don’t stretch out (I wear a medium, but I could probably fit a small if I wanted an even TIGHTER fit) after washing, which is key for me.
Lastly, if you’re looking for a pair of shorts that won’t give you any sort of muffin top then these are for you! Comfy, cute, and makes you feel like a total fitness star.
What I don’t like about the Nike Pro Combat Shorts, is their lack of any type of pocket or holding device. They really are as minimal as you can get. I don’t usually wear these short for running unless I stick my iPod in the waist band, which I’ll do on occasion. But even then, the iPod tends to get sweaty or fall out.
I would also like a place to put my keys during a run. However, I usually fix that problem by finding a patch of dirt and burying them like a dog. (I’m all about safety).
The second thing that I’m not a huge fan of (but to be fair, it is probably my fault), is how bad my bum looks in some of the colors. But like I said, when these FIRST came out, I think they were made to be worn underneath other shorts – not for everyone’s eyes to see everything. Even so, the orange actually turned out pretty good! (However, don’t go for lime green because your ass WILL look like that Nickelodeon green slime).
The Best Deals?
So where to buy these shorts for the best deal? Well I have always bought mine in any Nike or Nike Outlet store. If you live in Canada, sometimes you can get lucky and find them in Winners. Otherwise I know The Bay has STOCKED up on a ton of Nike stuff recently and usually has sales once every couple of months.
I have paid about $30 for each pair, and considering their lasting value and quality, I’d say that’s an amazing deal.

Best Women’s Running Shorts – Footwear News
If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, we may receive an affiliate commission.
In the quest for the best running shorts for women, we’ve considered a few factors.
The best running shorts are smooth to the touch, lightweight, moisture-wicking and occasionally include a pocket for storing your cell phone and other valuable belongings while you hit the pavement.
Brands such as Nike, Adidas and Reebok all carry shorts specifically designed for running. Amazon and Target also have a few wallet-friendly options when it comes to the best running shorts for women. Additionally, our roundup of shorts should pair well with the best sports bras for running, too.
Another notable factor about women’s running shorts in 2020 is that several brands are offering styles made from recycled polyester, a material typically derived from cleaned, post-consumer plastics. The material requires less resources to make and helps reduce waste in landfills, while being just as soft and breathable as traditional performance fabrics.
Whether you prefer compression shorts, track shorts or 2-in-1 shorts, we’ve rounded up the best running shorts for women in the game. Discover them all ahead.
Nike Tempo Running Shorts
Nike’s classic Tempo Running Shorts get a modern update with a confetti-style print done in a variety of vibrant colorways.

Men: wear tights while you work out, ditch the shorts, and live free!
Some people say men should wear shorts over their activewear tights and hide their shame. Nuts to that!
“Women shouldn’t wear tight clothes when they exercise. It’s gross having to see every part of their bodies hanging out, and showing off like that is kinda slutty. Why don’t they cover up?”
If you heard someone say something like that about women, you’d probably condemn them as a sexist jerk, or a righteous prude — and rightly so. So why do we put up with similar arguments about men?
As we’ve covered on Coach before, men’s activewear is slowly getting smaller and tighter. This has led to a boom in what’s called either lower-body compression wear, or running or training pants, or (most accurately) good old tights.
But as more fellas show up to the gym in their figure-hugging clothes, an even louder chorus seems to be urging them to throw a pair of shorts on top to hide their shame.
RELATED: Gym trend: The rise and rise of men’s activewear
Well, nuts to that (pun intended)! Guys, if you want to wear your tights when you work out, wear your tights when you work out, and don’t let anyone make you feel bad about it.
Paul Zack, founder of men’s activewear brand BCNU and seller of many a legging, told Coach earlier this year that the shorts-over-tights trend is unlikely to last — because it’s just not functional.
“More and more men are finding the additional layers of ‘compression and shorts’ restrictive, uncomfortable and unnecessary,” he said. “Wearing compression under shorts when you want freedom of movement is restrictive and unnecessary, so go solo.”
The same way no serious lap swimmer bothers wearing boardies over his skintight swimwear, no one should bother slipping shorts over their tights if they’re going to get in the way.
If you’re not comfortable revealing all in a pair of tights, that’s fine too — Zack said many men tend to feel a little self-conscious in them.
“The truth of the matter is that guys are more modest than women when it comes to compression wear, as they are more sensitive about overexposure of the goods, and prefer to layer up,” he told Coach.
But ladies have been proudly donning tights in the gym — and in the supermarket, and at home, and anywhere they feel like it — for years. Men, you should enjoy the same freedom.

Sure, it’s true not every man’s body looks like he just stepped off the cover of a fitness magazine. And yes, seeing a MAMIL cycling past your local cafe or a beach yeti squeezed into a non-existent Speedo can be, uh, a little confronting. (Lads, if you’re going to go tight, you have a duty to keep yourself, uh, neatly packaged.)
But if being reminded that men aren’t smooth-crotched Ken dolls is offensive or repulsive to you (“He has genitals? Gasp!”), that’s probably something you need to work out on your own time.
As for the argument that men who strut around in tights are just showing off… well, der. #WhenYouGotItFlauntIt
But this still isn’t okay to wear in the gym… or anywhere else (AFP)
The Best Running Shoes of 2021
Who needs a gym when you’ve got the streets at your disposal? The treadmills might be back, but we’ve always found taking our exercise to the park and pavements to be a far more rewarding way to build fitness. If you agree, then you’ll need a pair of running trainers that can handle all kinds of weather conditions and terrain. They need to look good, too.
That’s why we’ve rounded up the best running trainers on the market, from Nike to Adidas to New Balance, to ensure that you’re supported along the way.
Salomon Odyssey Advanced
Salomon’s sleek technical shoes have played a key role in the rise of ‘Gorpcore’ over the years – the trend in which men who work from cafes dress like all-action Kilimanjaro botherers. Nowadays you’re just as likely to see a pair at a fashion week party as you are on a nature trail, but this is one of the most versatile colourways we’ve seen from the French brand. The retro-inspired beige and white Odyssey Advanced hiking shoes are neutral and chunky enough to work their way into the wardrobe rotation, but also stand up to the elements on tricky terrain. The roomy toe box ensures comfort, while the midsoles absorb shock and reduces muscle fatigue.
Salomon Odyssey Advanced, £145, mrporter.com
Arc’teryx Norvan SL 2
While we’re talking Gorp, Arc’teryx’s trail runners have a great reputation for a reason. The Norvan SL 2s are super lightweight and breathable, perfect for gliding around all kinds of challenging conditions (the durable Vibram Megagrip outsole really stands up to the test). They’re also, if you haven’t already noticed, extremely yellow. They’re probably the yellow-est trainers we’ve ever seen. If you’re a fan of yellow – and you must be, because you stopped to read this and haven’t stopped – then there is simply is no better option.
Arc’teryx Norvan SL 2, £130, arcteryx.com
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38
This isn’t the first time we’ve mentioned the Pegasus 38s, and it won’t be the last. Comfortable, affordable, effective – there are few that can match it as an all-rounder. And now, a great tiger print colourway from Nike’s Blue Ribbon Sports offshoot. Lovely stuff.
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38, £109.95, nike.com
Asics Gel-Kayano 28
For our money, some of the nicest looking trainers on the market. We’ve talked plenty about how much we liked its predecessor, but the Japanese brand’s much-anticipated upgrade features a snugger fit on the mesh upper and a new midsole foam – FF Blast foam, specifically – which makes for a more responsive, bouncy and lightweight ride. They’re as airy and comfortable as ever, and we’re big fans of this grey colourway with paint strokes of red, light blue and navy.
Asics Gel-Kayano 28, £155, mrporter.com
Saucony Triumph 19
The softest shoe in Saucony’s line-up, the Triumph 19 aims for “cloudlike lightness”. It’s achieved though PWRRUN+ cushioning on the underfoot, as well as a new re-engineered mono-mesh upper for breathability. It’s also partially made from recycled materials.
Saucony Triumph 19, £145, saucony.com
Nike ZoomX Invincible Run Flyknit
One of Nike’s most tested shoes, the brand’s ZoomX Invincible Run Flyknits are made for long, PB-breaking runs. To achieve that, every element of the shoe is thoughtfully designed to create a lightweight, protective and propulsive ride. The foam midsole is incredibly soft and bouncy (we’d advise keeping it away from harsh trail conditions), the shape at the forefoot is exaggerated to provide more stability, while the rocker silhouette maintains momentum. The upper is plush and super breathable, too. If you’re looking for a comfy, cloud-like running shoe, then this is one of your very best bets.
Nike ZoomX Invincible Run Flyknit, £164.95, nike.com
Yeah, okay, fine, the 4DFWD’s midsole looks like it’s been crafted with kids’ pasta shapes, but there’s method to the madness. It’s based on seventeen years of athletes’ running data, a 3D-printed feat of engineering that redirects energy forward, improving your gait in the process. Elsewhere, the rubber outsole offers trustworthy traction and the sock-like Primeknit+ upper provides the kind of breathable comfort you need on long runs (although you should possibly move down a shoe size, considering just how flexible it is).
Adidas 4DFWD, £170, adidas.co.uk
Columbia Escape Pursuit Trail
We like the sunset-to-dusk colourway on these Columbia trainers, but not as much as we like the price. You don’t find many trail runners this good looking for south of a hundred, and while they boast a relatively simple construction compared to some much pricier (and often clunkier) competitors, they’ll serve you well in challenging terrain. The mesh upper is flexible while still maintaining a structured fit, and it’s satisfyingly breathable too. The midsole, meanwhile, is well cushioned and offers impressive stability. They’re also part of a small but esteemed group of shoes on this list that we’d wear casually.
Columbia Escape Pursuit Trail, £90, columbiasportswear.co.uk
Nike x Undercover Gyakusou ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% VaporWeave
To celebrate the Tokyo Olympics, Nike has collaborated with a host of much-loved Japanese brands (UNDERCOVER, sacai and Ambush) as well as Virgil Abloh’s Off-White on a long-awaited line-up of sports apparel (the range was, of course, originally planned for last year). We really like the look of UNDERCOVER founder Jun Takahashi’s take on the ZoomX Vaporfly Next&s – it’s the latest entry into his Gyakusou collection, which Takahashi has been working on for over a decade with the famous Tokyo running association of the same name (‘Gyakusou’ roughly translates to running the wrong way, a reference to the fact that the group runs counter-clockwise while others in the city do the opposite). Also available in red, you’ll have to get in there quick to cop a pair.
Nike x Undercover Gyakusou ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% VaporWeave, £255, mrporter.com
Saucony Endorphin Trail
Another entry into Saucony’s checker flag-inspired racing line, the Endorphin Trail uses the brand’s patented SPEEDROLL technology (geometric design that helps to propel you forward effortlessly) for the first time in an off-road shoe. It also boasts a PWRTRAC outsole for safety, stability and grip against the most challenging of terrains and conditions, while the sleeve protects against debris. A lightweight shoe you can trust, with plenty of cushioning.
Saucony Endorphin Trail, £155, saucony.com
Merrell Moab Flight
Another trail runner, perfect for all that countryside staycation exercising you’ve promised yourself you’ll be doing in the coming months. First thing’s first, the Moab Flight is sustainably crafted: the mesh upper is made of 70% recycled material, while the high-performance Vibram EcoStep soles and the top sheet of the EVA foam insole sit at 30% and 50% on the doing-good-o-meter respectively (the laces, meanwhile, are 100% recycled). It’s also vegan-friendly, and they’re super rugged and comfortable. An impressive achievement, and a big step in the right direction.
Merrell Moab Flight, £110, merrell.com
Nike Downshifter 11
A very affordable pair of runners that look the part too, Nike’s Downshifter has reached its eleventh iteration for a reason. First of all, the shoe provides a surprisingly premium fit – cushioned, lightweight, breathable and supportive, a translucent window allows you to get a glimpse at the mechanisms that tighten around your foot pre-run. It’s also available in a minimalist black silhouette, but we’re big fans of the slick platinum colourway.
Nike Downshifter 11, £54.95, nike.com
Hoka One One Clifton 8
The award-winning Hoka One One Clifton is back, this time with a lighter and more responsive EVA midsole (it has dropped in weight by 15%), as well as a streamlined silhouette and reimagined (super comfortable, 100 per cent vegan) mesh upper. Designed as an everyday trainer, the MetaRocker technology – midsole geometry that creates a fulcrum effect while you run – means that you’ll quickly hit your stride. The tasteful teal colourway gets a big thumbs up from us, too.
Hoka One One Clifton 8, £125, hokaoneone.eu
Brooks Glycerin 19
Supreme comfort is the name of the game with the Glycerin 19. Brooks has decked the shoe out with a plush interior and super soft cushioning in the midsole – what the brand calls ‘DNA Loft’ – that provides an easy ride without being too squishy or absorbing your momentum.
Brooks Glycerin 19, £140, brooksrunning.com
Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% 2
The celebrated marathon-ready shoe has been revamped, with a new mesh upper that provides more comfort than its predecessor without losing any of the airy snugness that made the NEXT% such a favourite amongst top athletes. The carbon-plated design itself is fairly identical, as are the outsole and midsole (the stack height of which is 40mm, the maximum allowed by World Athletics). Not a departure from Nike’s previous offerings, but a triumph nonetheless.
Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% 2, £209.95, nike.com
New Balance Fuelcell RC Elite V2
It should be said, first of all, that these trainers aren’t cheap; at over £200, they’re one of the most expensive options on this list. Still, that money gets you a pair of runners that have been engineered for peak performance, suitable for elite athletes as well as PB-breaking hobbyists. The lightweight knit upper keeps your foot cool during long outings, and coupled with the soft padding around the collar and wider toe box, you’ll be treated to one of the most comfortable running experiences around. It’s the nitrogen-infused foam on the Fuelcell midsole that really propels you forward though, while the lightweight rubber outsole offers traction and protection from the elements. An investment, but one that any serious runner deserves to treat themselves to.
New Balance Fuelcell RC Elite V2, £209.99, sportsshoes.com
Saucony Endorphin Speed 2
Featuring a similar chequered design to the Saucony Endorphin Pros further down this list (and a nice touch of suede at the back), the neutral Speed 2s are a more budget-friendly option for runners who – as the name suggests – want to leave the competition in the dust. The mono-mesh on the upper keeps things breathable, while the full length nylon plate will help you build momentum. Compared to its predecessor, the heel boasts a snugger fit and the laces are anti-slip. Lovely stuff.
Saucony Endorphin, £155, saucony.com
Nike Pegasus 3 Mesh Trail
By and large, brands often opt for an earthy palette with their trail sneaker design: browns and oranges and murky reds. So it’s refreshing to see Nike experiment with a lighter colourway for the Pegasus 3 – an Eighties-inspired, bubblegum-flavoured mix of teal, gold, and purple, with a grey-ish white midsole that provides plenty of comfort and support on the rockiest of terrain. The rubber sole also mimics mountain-biking tyres, keeping your run smooth and your feet protected. We’re big fans.
Nike Pegasus 3 Mesh Trail, £114.95, nike.com
When it comes to state-of-the-art running tech, you can always trust Swiss dons On. Beginning their mission to achieve “the perfect running sensation” in Zurich in 2010, the brand has gone from strength to strength, always focused on the same basic concept: that a good shoe needs a cushioned landing and a firm take-off. The Cloudnova is one of the lightest trainers you’ll find on the market, and arrive at a reasonable price. They stand out from the pack on a visual level too.
ON Cloudnova, £135, mrporter.com
Hoka One One Bondi L
A Yeezy-esque taupe suede shoe from French running dons Hoka One One, bulky and rugged enough to deal with all kinds of terrain and nice enough to draft into your everyday wardrobe, too. The bevelled heels provide smooth transitions, and the full-length EVA midsoles make them far more lightweight than they look.
Hoka One One Bondi L, £165, mrporter.com
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38 A.I.R. Kelly Anna London
We don’t usually like repeating ourselves on this list, but we’re big fans of Nike’s Air Zoom Pegasus 38 and even bigger fans of UK artist Kelly Anna London’s unique take on the shoe. Part of the brand’s A.I.R (Artist in Residence) series, London’s body-positive work is defined by its bold colours, and she’s given this colourway the exact same treatment: figures in motion are spread across the black mesh upper. It’s a tasteful way to add pops of colour to your running wardrobe. You can check out our review of the actual shoe itself further down the page.
Air Zoom Pegasus 38 A.I.R. Kelly Anna London, £104.95, nike.com
Asics GlideRide 2
Asics crafted the GlideRide with one intention: to help runners push themselves further. They achieved that by reducing energy through the phases of the gait cycle from footstrike to toe-off, and now the update model is building on that success with a super comfortable redesign. Engineered mesh on the upper provides ventilation while simultaneously adjusting to the shape of your foot, and the curved sole reduces the load placed on lower limbs. A state-of-the-art pair of shoes for longer distances.
Asics GlideRide 2, £145, asics.com
Saucony Endorphin Pro 2
Kind of reminiscent of those emo slip-on Vans from the early Noughts (although something tells us they got their design inspiration from a racing flag), Saucony’s new upgrade to the Endorphin Pro line focuses on improved fit and support. The latter is bolstered by signature S-curve carbon fiber plate which helps you gain momentum with each stride, alongside a much-improved heel set-up, better cushioning and a stiff forefoot. There’s a new lacing system too, ensuring that you’ll feel extremely snug as you speed your way through summer.
Endorphin Pro 2, £190, saucony.com
Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 7
A trail running shoe that prioritises comfort, lightness and support. The mesh upper provides ventilation while the Zoom Air unit adds impressive bounce, even in the roughest of conditions. The heel and forefoot also have multi-directional traction lugs, made from high-abrasion rubber, to help you maintain balance on up-and-downhill routes. It’s available in all sorts of zany colourways, but we’re big fans of the unfussy monochrome effort.
Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 7, £115, mrporter.com
Reebok LITE 2
Super lightweight shoes often come with a heavy price tag, but these simple and nimble Reebok runners are brilliant value for money. Some small sacrifices have been made – the lack of rubber on the outsole make them slightly slippery on wet pavements, for example – but all in all the Lite 2 is an impressive package. The sleek, neon-tinged design features a breathable mesh upper and the fit is snug. A top choice for beginners on a budget.
Reebok Lite 2, £35, reebok. co.uk
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38
The long-awaited return of a fan favourite, Nike’s upgrade on the “workhorse with wings” arrives with a wider forefoot to allow for more toe room, while maintaining a locked-in, supportive and comfortable shape (thanks to the breathable mesh upper, midfoot webbing and added foam in the tongue). Much like its predecessor, the Pegasus 38 is a steal for anybody who needs a pair of affordable, versatile and super-light all-rounders.
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38, £104.95, sportsshoes.com
ASICS X Vivienne Westwood Gel-Kayano 27 DE
Vivienne Westwood has taken another spin on a long-time Asics favourite with the Gel Kayano 27 De, adding a ripstop fabric upper (traditionally used by the military for extra protection) that provides a raw, deconstructed look to the previously sleek silhouette. Beyond that, the shoe is as state-of-the-art as ever, with a revolutionary midsole that reduces weight, stabilises your foot and aids your transitions. It follows the British brand’s punk-influenced take on the shoe last year, which you can find here.
ASICS X Vivienne Westwood Gel-Kayano 27 DE, £220, viviennewestwood.com
Eighteen months after Veja released their first running trainer, the eco-conscious brand is back with a new and improved model: the Marlin. Made of 62% bio based or recycled materials, it might be the most ethically constructed performance trainer on the market right now, but that doesn’t mean it skimps on the running tech. The L-foam cushion, made from natural latex, offers a high shock absorption that makes any run feel safe and effortless, and the Pebax upper inserts – made from 100% ricinus oil – provides sturdy yet light support.
Veja Marlin, £145, greavessports. com
Saucony Canyon TR
Whether you’re pounding the pavements or trudging your way across a wet and muddy trail, the Canyon TR will give you the comfort, protection and traction you need. What’s more, the shoe’s breathable knit upper contains 33% recycled materials, and Saucony’s ‘Formfit’ technology provides a snug, tailored fit. As versatile as it gets.
Saucony Canyon TR, £120, saucony.com
Asics Gel-Nimbus 23 Tokyo
From the Japanese running brand’s Sunrise range – which was born out of a charity campaign with Mind that raised £100,000 for vital mental health research and services – the Gel-Nimbus 23 Tokyo is an extremely comfortable trainer, designed to facilitate longer runs and protect against impact injury. The upper is made from engineered mesh which increases breathability, and several elements of the shoe are gender-specific, including the underfoot pillars that provide a softer feel. Top class.
Gel-Nimbus 23 Tokyo, £155, asics.com
Saucony Ride 14
A dynamic and comfortable experience for neutral runners, the smooth Saucony Ride 14s were well worth the wait. Perfect for long runs on hard surfaces, thanks to the innovative PWRRUN cushioning on the midsole, these are more than ready to protect and push you on your big return to the gym.
Saucony Ride 14, £124.99, saucony.com
Salomon RX Moc 3.0
A similar colour to the Asics above, but a very different vibe altogether. Not too dissimilar to water shoes, Salomon’s low-top slip-on runners have a super light sock-like fit, and are designed to reduce physical stress to the foot.
RX Moc 3.0, £90, mrporter.com
Adidas Climacool Vento
Maybe not for everybody, but it’s summer – why not embrace some floral patterns? And the nature-friendly theme doesn’t stop there. Adidas has crafted 50 per cent of the Climacool’s upper with high-performance recycled materials and no virgin polyester (which come from non-renewable sources). Something a little different, but well worth a look.
Climacool Vento, £120, adidas.co.uk
Adidas Ultraboost 21 X 424 X AFC
Last year, very well-dressed Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin teamed up with 424 founder Guillermo Andrade to create some matchday suits for the team, and they’ve now expanded that range to include a range of outerwear and training gear. We’re big fans of the Los Angeles streetwear brand’s sleek, scarlet and black take on the new(ish) Adidas Ultraboosts, which is only available through the brand’s app for a limited time. “Having the chance to create first a formalwear collection, and now this travel and leisure range with my beloved Arsenal is an absolute dream,” said Andrade. “Football was my childhood passion, and still something extremely close to my heart. ”
Adidas Ultraboosts 21 X 424 X AFC, £160, adidas.co.uk
New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v11s
The New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v11s are, somewhat unsurprisingly, all about comfort. Everything about this flagship upgrade is designed to keep you running for longer with less bothersome aches and pains, from the super responsive and lightweight midsole to the sock-like fit of the breathable upper. There’s some real bounce to them too, and they take almost no time at all to break in upon first wear. Really nice all-rounders for runners who have built up their miles over lockdown and now need a more trustworthy pair of trainers.
New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v11s, £135, newbalance.co.uk
Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% Blue Ribbon Sports
With a name, a colour palette and a pattern drawn from Nike’s humble origins, these marathon-ready runners have some history behind them. Track athletes Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman first started selling shoes under the Blue Ribbon Sports label 1964, collaborating with Japanese brand Onitsuka Tiger, until they rebranded as Nike in 1971 and started to sell their own footwear. Safe to say, these ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%s – woven with breathable mesh and fitted with a carbon-fibre plate at the midsole – are slightly more advanced than the clobber Knight and Bowerman sold out of their car boots all those years ago.
Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%, £239.95, nike.com
APL TechLoom Breeze
Athletic Propulsion Labs call the unisex TechLoom Breeze “the ultimate intersection of luxury and performance”, which is a nice way of saying that they’re not as fugly as most of the top tier running trainers on the market right now. We’d say that’s fair; they’re streamlined and simple but feature nice little touches, like this paint speckled midsole. They’re versatile enough to make regular appearances outside of your running routine, too. Lovely stuff.
APL TechLoom Breeze, £183.99, athleticpropulsionlabs.com
Columbia Escape Ascent Trail
Don’t know about you, but we could probably do with more zebra print in our lives. There isn’t a single Manchester United supporter at Esquire, and we’re not huge fans of the current onslaught of streetwear-inspired football kits either, but we couldn’t help but appreciate their safari-inspired 2020/21 third shirt. These trail runners from Columbia follow that very same black, white and red colourway, and once again, it somehow works. Fitted with a gusseted tongue that keeps debris out, as well as ‘Adapt Trax’ outsole that provides all-terrain traction, they’re also ready for any challenge you throw at them.

Merrell Agility Peak 4
Another trail runner, another trippy design from American hiking honchos Merrell. The integrated lacing system provides a glove-like fit, and the external rear strap provides another layer of reassurance with its heel-locking capabilities. Combine that with the Gaiter D-ring protective toe cap and the midsole’s ground-pounding dual-directional flex-grooves, and you’ve got a trustworthy pair of trainers for any terrain.

Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% Eliud Kipchoge
Part of a capsule collection inspired by Kenyan long-distance runner Eliud Kipchoge and his record-breaking 1:59 marathon time in 2019, the Alphafly NEXT%s are statement-making trainers. They’re chunky for one thing, but deceptively lightweight thanks to an ‘AtomKnit’ upper (steamed and stretched fabric) and ZoomX foam sole. Then there’s the sharp-looking heel that could do some real damage to rival shins come race-time.

Under Armour Flow Velociti Wind
Under Armour calls the Flow Velociti Wind its “fastest running shoe yet”. Loyal ‘The Best Running Shoes Of 2021’ Ultras will know that we tend to favour more muted colourways, but we were taken by the Velociti Wind’s neon green design from the off; it might not be apparent in the image, but a combination of spiderweb stitching and glitter-esque detailing on the black Flow sole gives it a nice effervescent feel. Talking of which: Under Armour have eliminated the need for an outsole altogether, instead opting for an all-in-one cushioning system. When we took them to the streets we felt the absence immediately: this is a super light shoe, soft yet reliably supportive. Get in there quick. (It also connects to Map My Run, pound for pound our favourite running app on the market).

Saucony Kinvara 12
A nice Nineties-inspired design from Saucony, who have crafted a truly dependable trainer in the form of the Kinvara 12. The American brand, who also released the Guide 14 this month, have taken a no-fuss approach to the lightweight Kinvara upgrade; the breathable mesh upper has been simplified, providing just enough secure structure to help rather than hinder your runs, and added ground contact aids the smoothness and speed of transition (they’re true to size, too). While you’ll no doubt be putting them through their paces on the daily, they provide enough comfort and stability to help you hit your PB in longer runs too.
Kincara 12, £120, saucony.com
Adidas Ultraboost 21
The new Ultraboosts are here, and they’ve had a sleek design overhaul. The update looks more seamless and integrated than previous iterations (and not too dissimilar to the brand’s streetwear-inflected ACE 16+ UltraBOOSTs from 2018, in our opinion). The new flagships are largely crafted with Primeblue, Adidas’s high-performance recycled material, which is a very good thing indeed – by utilising Parley Ocean Plastic, the brand hopes to combat the 5 trillion-odd pieces of plastic that are currently endangering fish across the world. The shoe itself boasts a much-improved energy return, and a new torsion system provides a 15% increase in forefoot bending stiffness (that means your runs will be more responsive.) As you’ve come to expect, the Primeknit upper is super comfortable and supportive too.
Ultraboost 21, £160, adidas.co.uk
Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT%
Yeah, we thought that was a spirit level on the sole too. And yes, that would have been really handy. But if you can overcome that DIY-based disappointment then you’ll be rewarded with one of the best shoes in Nike’s line-up, suitable for casual runners and professionals alike. Durable, comfortable and very responsive on the forefoot, we’d say that the Tempo Next% is best suited to intense training runs that prioritise time over sheer distance. Available in a range of colourways, we’re partial to the bright mango version too.
Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT%, £169. 95, nike.com
Merrell Nova 2 Rainbow
Look, we know rainbow colourways aren’t for everyone. But we’ve just enjoyed our bi-monthly re-watch of Mad Men and so we’re in the mood for some Sixties-inspired trippiness. Pull them on, find your most unedifying pair of short shorts, fill up your running bottle with Old Fashioned (editor: don’t do that) and hit the road, safe in the knowledge that your new shoes are vegan friendly, super stable and lightweight, with hiker-esque durability.
Merrell Nova 2 Rainbow, £100, merrell.com
A solid fair of budget runners for beginners, if not quite deserving of their space-age name. They’re crafted from a minimum of 50% recycled material (Adidas calls the renewable mix of materials Primegreen) and feature a Bounce midsole for extra cushioning. If you haven’t started your running journey yet, you could do far worse than give these a go.
Adidas Galaxar, £70, adidas.co.uk
Asics Gel-Kayano 27
We bang on about Asics a lot, but honestly: they’re great. The redesigned mesh upper on the Kayano 27s encourage ventilation, while the SPACE TRUSSTIC™ midsole (???) somehow reduces weight and improves stability. The rearfoot is also reflective, helping you to remain visible in the pitch-black outdoors (around 5pm GMT at the moment).
Asics Gel-Kayano 27, £155, asics.com
Saucony Endorphin Shift
We’ve done a lot of running over the past year or so, and while that is unequivocally a Good Thing, it doesn’t mean your body hasn’t felt the burden. Feet, in particular, are prone to injuries and inflammations – and you need a pair of trainers that are going to treat them right. Step forward the Endorphin Shift (now available in a Bright Future colourway), a plush shoe that eases the load with Saucony’s underfoot technology. The cushioned comfort doesn’t take away from the model’s forward momentum either, thanks to the brand’s SPEEDROLL tech. Great stuff.
Saucony Endorphin Shift, £130, saucony.com
Adidas X9000L3 X Vitality
‘Modern running shoes that blur the lines between real and virtual’, according to Adidas. Which kind of makes it sound like one of those eBay scams where they send you a print-out instead of the actual item, but rest assured: these are real shoes. Very good ones too, with responsive boost cushioning and a traction pattern on the outsole designed to mimic computer-generated data.
X9000L3 X VITALITY SHOES, £110, adidas.co.uk
Asics Roadblast Tokyo
Crafted in ‘Sunrise Red’, these super comfy trainers from Japanese brand Asics feature a gender-specific knit pattern – important, as it means they’re catered for the natural splay of men’s and women’s foot shapes. They’re pretty affordable too, considering the amount of top tier running tech that’s been packed within (the brand’s FLYTEFOAM Blast and AMPLIFOAM midsole combines responsiveness with cosiness). Good stuff.

Teenager Moultrie scores 1st pro goal, Thorns down Dash
PORTLAND, Ore. —
Fifteen-year-old Olivia Moultrie scored her first professional goal on a free kick and the Portland Thorns went on to defeat the Houston Dash 3-1 on a penalty shootout after a 2-2 draw Wednesday night in the Women’s International Champions Cup
Shelby Hogan, making her pro debut in goal for the Thorns, made three saves during the shootout and Simone Charley buried her attempt to clinch it for Portland.
The Thorns advance to play Lyon in the WICC title game on Saturday. Melvine Malard scored in the 85th minute to give Lyon a 3-2 victory over Barcelona in the earlier match.
Moultrie, who turned professional at 13 and signed a deal with Nike, filed a lawsuit against the National Women’s Soccer League in May asserting that she should be able to play despite a rule prohibiting players under 18.
A judge granted a preliminary injunction allowing her to play in June, and she eventually reached a settlement with the league. She became the youngest player to appear in a league match when she made her debut on July 3 against Racing Louisville.
Moultire’s goal came on a free kick in the 57th minute and tied the match at 2-all.
Houston’s Shea Groom scored in the 17th and 41st minutes. Portland closed the gap in the 51st minute with Natalia Kuikka’s goal.
“I’m just so glad it went in, because all I cared about was winning the game, and for us moving on to the next match. And that’s what we did,” Moultrie said. “So I couldn’t be more happy.”
Because it was not a league match, Moultrie has yet to score her first NWSL goal.
Mariona scored both of Barcelona’s goals, while Amel Majri and Amandine Henry added goals for Lyon.
Lyon, the 2020 UEFA Champions League winner, is the defending champion from the 2019 WICC. Barcelona qualified for the event as the 2020 Spanish league leader.
The Thorns qualified for the tournament as winners of the NWSL’s fall series, while the Dash won last summer’s Challenge Cup in Utah.
New York-based Relevent Sports Group, which puts on the International Champions Cup for men’s club teams each summer, added the women’s competition in 2018. Last year’s event was cancelled because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Organizers bill the event as the international championship for women’s professional club teams. Relevent plans to add two additional teams to the women’s tournament next year and eight clubs in 2023.

womens dri fit and nike pro compression sports basketball and boxing kids skirt shorts
Sport has recently become a part of our daily life. In this regard, such an item of clothing as shorts becomes an indispensable part of the wardrobe, especially if this is a Nike brand product.
Women’s sports models
Nike women’s shorts line has an ultramodern design and is constantly updated with new collections. These are products of a wide variety of styles: free-cut, super-elastic tight-fitting models, variants with gussets – special inserts.The shorts have various variations in the length and design of the top (braid, wide elastic band, fastener).
The advantage of this garment is flat seams, which exclude chafing of the skin. The cut of the shorts takes into account all the anatomical features of the female figure.
The brand has a dedicated Nike pro product category for advanced athletes and professionals.And the Nike pro Rival series is built for high-intensity workouts.
Nike women’s sports shorts can be selected for a specific sport: basketball, boxing, running, tennis, golf models. This garment will not only complement your look, but will also help you achieve maximum results during your workouts, since the shorts are made taking into account the various nuances inherent in a particular sporting activity.
- For example, Nike basketball shorts are characterized by a loose fit and are equipped with a wide elastic band at the waist, which perfectly fixes them on the body and at the same time prevents chafing of the skin. The length of such models, as a rule, is up to the knee, but young girls sometimes choose short options. Basketball shorts are designed to fit perfectly and allow air to breathe, allowing your skin to breathe during an active workout.
- Running models ensure you feel comfortable at any distance. Short length, side slits and mesh panels, built-in compression shorts and a padded gusset provide complete freedom of movement and securely fix the garment on the body. Convenient pockets for small items allow you to take essential things with you.
- Tennis shorts also have a tight and elastic fit that allows you to move actively and give your best during the game. They are again equipped with side slits and a wide belt with a mesh. The dri fit technology draws sweat to the surface and allows the skin to breathe.
- Original model – golf shorts for ultimate freedom of movement on the court. Cotton-based fabric with polyester and spandex additives for density and elasticity. The skirt has a neat side zip closure and pockets.
Nike offers a wide range of trendy and trendy designs for kids. Branded shorts are categorized into casual and swim shorts. Swim shorts are distinguished primarily by their short length, texture of the fabric (quick-drying synthetic materials) and distinctive colors.
Boys’ casual options are mostly mid-length, knee-length and loose fit.They are fixed to the belt with a wide elastic band. Shorts for girls have the same cut, in addition, they are also presented with a short sports model (tight or loose fit). Children’s shorts are very comfortable, do not hinder movement and go well with T-shirts and tops.
Cotton, synthetic or blended materials are used for Nike women’s sports shorts. If the product is necessary for long and active workouts, then you should give preference to synthetic fabrics. Natural cotton, although perfectly breathable and hypoallergenic, wears out quickly and loses its attractive appearance under the influence of sweat and as a result of repeated washings. And shorts made from high-quality synthetic fabric, such as lightweight polyester, fit perfectly while providing breathability.
Dri fit technology has created an innovative microfiber material that absorbs sweat and then evaporates it into the environment, preventing wet stains from forming on clothes.An additional advantage of such a material is its increased strength, it does not tear or fade under the influence of sunlight.
For certain sports shorts, the outer part can be made of 100% cotton and the shorts lining can be made of polyester (optionally with spandex).
In addition, Nike has a women’s sports shorts made of dense, smooth jersey and textiles.
Children’s models are sewn mostly from natural materials (cotton, thin velor, knitwear) with a small percentage of artificial additives. Swimming shorts are made exclusively of quick-drying synthetics.
The color range of women’s sports shorts includes black, blue, white, pink. In addition, there are combined models (the combination of gray with black or white looks harmonious). Products with a print (abstract, in small specks, with a mélange effect) are widely represented. Children’s shorts for boys have restrained colors: black, blue, gray, khaki. Models for girls have more cheerful colors: orange, red, pink, yellow-blue, often decorated with a print (strip, check, rhombuses, abstract drawing).

Nike Technologies: Description of the functional features of Nike clothing, footwear and accessories
Nike Combat – Nike professional equipment is highly durable, extremely lightweight, but at the same time provides optimal protection for the athlete.This technology was developed with the goal of minimizing chafing on the skin, which caused discomfort for many sports enthusiasts. In addition, the Combat material has excellent shock absorption, therefore it is a reliable layer between any surface and the athlete.
Dri-FIT Body Mapping
Dri-FIT Body Mapping – the presence of additional ventilation zones to create the effect of full air exchange. A well-thought-out ventilation system + quick sweat removal from the skin is the key to the ultimate comfort of the fabric.
Soft, lightweight foam midsole that provides effective cushioning, elasticity and a smooth ride as an outsole.
A more resilient type of rubber that provides cushioning and traction.
Midsole that delivers effective responsive cushioning and bouncy properties.
Foam midsole.Provides cushioning.
High pressure gas chamber in the heel of the shoe. Provides additional shock absorption.
Lightweight breathable upper with large holes
is a fileon-like midsole material with a softer, more springy feel. Provides superior cushioning, elasticity and support.
is the latest development using four air columns that are located between elastic plates.By combining Nike Shox and Max Air technologies, the developers have managed to achieve more responsive cushioning.
– Nike’s regular outsole running shoe uses carbon rubber. The heel area is most prone to abrasion. This is why Nike uses a tough rubber as an outsole in the heel area, which is more abrasion resistant.
is a dynamic support system that combines strength and responsiveness, made possible by a double foam insert at the base of the shoe.Closer to the outer layer, a harder formula is used (for support), and on the inside, a softer formula (for cushioning).
– keeps the body dry, removes moisture from the surface of the skin, transporting it to the outer surface of the fabric for rapid evaporation.
is a midsole that flexes in all directions for stunning natural foot movement as if you were barefoot. Lightness, comfort, freedom of movement and support will help you grow stronger and achieve better results.The technology is used only for women’s shoes.
is the name of the new cushioning technology. The company’s developers created it together with NASA. Both those and others were primarily concerned with the question of how to get rid of extra weight. By combining their efforts, the parties were able to create something outstanding.
– closed type cushion, found in all sneakers, where there is an AIR inscription on the midsole. The cushion is located inside the midsole and is not visible from the outside.Can be placed in either the heel or the forefoot of the shoe, depending on the shock absorption requirements of a particular shoe category.
is a construction that is created by joining the upper parts of the shoe under the influence of pressure and temperature. The technology provides a tighter fit and almost completely eliminates the use of seams in the upper structure.
– the thinnest NIKE AIR airbag in comparison with others.Inside it there are threads that prevent the air cushion from exploding due to the greater amount of compressed gas to the height. The Zoom Air is positioned inside the shoe and can be found along the entire length, in the heel, or in the forefoot.
– more wear-resistant and durable compared to GDR.
is a waffle iron outsole material.
– keeps the body warm and provides comfort.It is made of polyester microfibers, a synthetic material that has a velvet layer that is fluffed on both sides and forms an air “cushion”. Such a “pillow” is an ideal heat insulator capable of retaining body heat for a long time.
is a material that provides maximum protection against water, wind and snow. Ideal for all-weather sports enthusiasts. Specially designed to withstand the weather, this fabric is wind and waterproof, keeping you dry and extremely breathable.
– a material that provides heat retention and breathability. The three-dimensional structure of the fabric increases the gap between the body and clothing in order to trap maximum warm air.
Nike Sphere Pro
– High-tech waterproof materials with added value. The face of the material uses, depending on the purpose, one of the Clima-FIT levels of protection, ensuring waterproof, windproof and breathable.The reverse side, made with Nike Sphere technology, creates an air gap between the fabric and the skin surface – the garment does not stick to the body and retains heat.
– The three-dimensional structure of the material provides effective moisture wicking (at the level of Dri-FIT fabrics) and creates a gap between the skin and the fabric, reducing friction. Products using this technology are lightweight and comfortable.
– The three-dimensional structure of the material using an open mesh creates a gap between the body and the product in order to ensure maximum heat dissipation.The structure of the material, which provides an air gap between the surface of the skin and clothing, allows moisture to evaporate efficiently, and the open mesh allows air to flow from the outside, increasing the efficiency of moisture removal and ventilation.
is a shoe with unmatched responsiveness and cushioning. The columns in the Nike Shox system provide maximum support and cushioning. The columns are made of highly resilient urethane foam and are designed for increased shock absorption and stability.Nike Shox is also the most tested technology in the company’s history.
Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong
– Delivers all the benefits of the Nike Pro Combat series while also providing lightweight, durable impact protection where you need it. Shock-absorbing foam overlays absorb and distribute pressure, while flat seams provide abrasion protection.
Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm
– Keeps you warm in cold weather. Provides all the benefits of Nike Pro Combat gear and has a lined lining that traps heat inside and does not trap moisture (sweat) on the skin.
Nike Pro Combat Core
– Made from durable, comfortable stretch Dri-Fit fabric with flat seams. This material wicks moisture away from the skin, allowing you to maintain a feeling of comfort, and provides the necessary coolness and compression, while not restricting movement.
Nike Pro Combat Hypercool
– Provides all the benefits of Nike Pro Combat gear and has an efficient ventilation design for maximum breathability in the hottest weather conditions.Air vents move moisture away from the skin along with excess heat, allowing fresh air to flow to areas where it is needed.
is the pivot point at the toe of the shoe that provides maneuverability.
is a midsole that provides responsive cushioning and responsiveness.
is a midfoot plate that provides stability.
is a midsole material that is placed in the heel and midsole from the inside. It is made of polyurethane or a denser version of the fileon, which helps to reduce the rate of pronation. It is marked with a different color compared to the base material of the sole.
– open type cushion with better cushioning compared to Encapsulated AIR, due to the fact that the cushion is more voluminous and has a “window effect” that provides additional cushioning due to the open part of the midsole.Basically, the Max AIR cushion is located in the heel of the midsole of the shoe and is always visible.
is an innovative midsole material from Nike that is 30% lighter than traditional Phylon to distribute shock more evenly.
– the functional content of the technology is similar to the SHOX technology. The plate expands into the open space in the heel for a springboard feel, and the integrated system distributes pressure over a wider area for a smoother ride with ample cushioning.
is a wear resistant rubber.
is a shoe designed specifically for training legs and feet by simulating barefoot movement. Nike Free is unique in that it allows the foot to move naturally, strengthening and rebuilding it, while at the same time providing all the benefits of a shoe: cushioning, protection and traction.
is a device-based thermoplastic strut (support) that sits in the middle of the midsole.This design provides a smoother roll as well as lateral stability during lateral movements.
