for £25 i can afford to buy two pairs a year lol

Be aware of sports direct,my mate bought a pair of trainers and when he got them they had already been worn as the insole was dirty so be careful.

Don't last five minutes these trainers- bought these a few times voted cold

If they are that bad, why buy the same trainers 'a few times'? Got to say, out of all the bad purchases I have made down the years, I have never gone back and bought the same thing twice if I haven't been happy with what I've bought in the first place!
White canvas trainers are a waste of your £££'s anyway. When it's wet they look shabby and dirty & when it's dry they get dusty and dirty (my own personal experience anyway)

These are designed for indoor use. TBH not sure anybody should be wearing shoes when practising a martial art!

You can also get the laced version for an extra quid

Good spot. If you really feel the need to buy trainers like this (had a Lonsdale pair a few years ago - pretty much exactly the same for £10 or so) get it with the laces so you don't look like a complete idiot, as I learnt

These would be good to take on holiday , I'd buy them , voted hot .

They are really lightweight. Only thing I would note is that once you get used to training in them your feet soften up.

Definitely not for use outdoors.

I'm not sure what the prices are like now but when I trained these were ~£50+. Hot from me.

I have a big collection of these - very comfy to wear & great for the summer, buy one size bigger as they are quite a tight fit

Heat added just because its a deal.

Fed up of competitions on hukd . I log in to see deals not competitions.

Gggrrrr

These are the only trainers that I will wear. I have had 7 pairs over the last 7 years. Therefore, although they officially state "For Indoor Use Only" I still appear to get around 1 year lifespan out of a pair.

I have bought several of these, very comfortable, but they don't last very long tbh. also become very uncomfortable if walking on pebbly roads , because soles are very thin.

I'm taking up cycling this summer. Anyone know if these would be suitable?

hmmm, interesting thought. I really am a beginner. I know how to ride a bike so that's a start, but are compatible shoes for clipless pedals expensive? I'm looking to get all my kit as cheap as possible.

OP: Sorry to ambush this thread with a beginners guide to cycling!

Got a pair of these instore last year (about May/June-ish) and they're starting to get a bit scuffed now (they are a leathery material and not canvas/cloth as someone else mentioned). Soles are quite thin so they aren't suitable for running down country lanes/hiking etc. I also stood on broken glass somewhere and noticed that a piece had got stuck in the sole and had very nearly went right through

Overall though they are comfortable and would do for normal daily use. I've had similar looking pairs of (laced) Adidas trainers with thicker 'Goodyear' soles in the past but can no longer seem to get those so these were the next best thing.

you are best wearing a stiff flat soled shoe for cycling rather than a trainer . Counter intuative i know but you dont want any bounce in the sole

I remember seeing some muddy fox ones on sports direct a couple of months back for between £20-30 although personally I'd get Shimano or specialized but the for the money they might be ok if they still sell them,pedals cost about £18 for Shimano if you search around, in any case good luck with the cycling.OP: Sorry to ambush this thread with a beginners guide to cycling!

I'll look into it. Thanks for your advice. Was hoping to get out there this week, but seems i may need some snow chains. Crazy country we live in!
