Cheap trainers just as good

11th October 2007

The study was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. It found there were no measurable differences in the "cushioning impact" provided by expensive trainers.

Dundee University's Professor Rami Aboud, who carried out the research, said: "We have found that neither pressure nor comfort are related to the cost of the trainers."
