With the state of me working out at the gym, I don't think these will make me look any worse.

I would not, maybe because I run regularly and do not care who is wearing what.

​I thought this.
Buy cheap, buy twice is the motto with trainers. In my experience cheap trainers last a few months if you're lucky, whereas a decent pair will last years. I've had proper branded trainers last 5 years or more, cheap ones fall apart after a few months.

Interesting theory. Most "experts" suggest changing running shoes every few hundred miles , but this might just be encourage you to continue buying. The most expensive running shoes I ever bough (newtons)/wore out in months.

You can't do much in them, you should only get 500 miles from a pair of trainers.
I buy 3 or so pairs of good (adidas) trainers a year.

I like good trainers but they don't make me run any faster or provide much more comfort. I ran in hi-tecs (issued) in the army and my running hasn't differed much.
Serious you can pick up Adidas Duramo 6 for £20-£25

Why would you want unbranded footwear if you were planning to run
I ran in these last week and my big toe burst inside them after only 20 minutes. Took them back for a refund. COLD
i've had some before they are absolutely rubbish for running, the soles absorb nothing and your lower legs will ache in no time.
Have bought these and lidl trainers and they are okay, cushioning and build comparable to my more expensive asics however they are not as well ventilated and my feet do get hotter.

But the one weakness I have found is that I heal strike quite heavily and whereas asics with their more abrasion resistant rubber tend to last me around 3 months (based on 25-40 miles a week) the aldi / lidl shoes wear through to the sole cushioning material in 3-4 weeks. Hence for me its buy cheap buy thrice. But depending on how you run they may be great for you.

Personally I've never paid more than £60 for shoes and wait till a good deal arrives on the internet and then buy a couple of pairs.

No pain, no gain
(I only run in branded, quality running shoes - other runners will soon blog if the brand is useless in terms of support, durability, etc before you buy. No chance of getting reliable runner comments on unbranded shoes as they won't touch them with a long bargepole.)
You're made to think (by clever advertising and gimmicks, gel, support etc) that you can't possibly run in cheap trainers. Like I mentioned earlier I ran in issued Hi-tecs whilst in the army, I recorded my fast ever 5k of about 17:20 in them. Unfortunately it was an army marked course and doesn't appear on my PO10 profile.
My next best 5k is 17:50 ran in Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost a support shoe(because I pronate). Whilst I was a couple years younger when I ran the army time I did so in the what I'd now consider to be the cheapest and nastiest trainer I've ever owned. At the time I ran because the army made me, since I've left I do it to keep fit and for "fun" I probably don't need £100 boosts but I choose to wear them in the hope that they are the difference between a decent run and a PB. Truth in my opinion is that they probably make marginal difference and as long as the shoe is suitably fitted (I go up a shoes size in running trainers due to swelling when I run) I don't think you'll see much difference.
Adidas/Reebok, Nike, Brooks, Saucony, New Balance may all tell you that you need gel, foam, cushioning etc but these companies are trying to sell you stuff. Many of the top African runners run barefoot at the beginning of their careers. Just look at Zola Budd and how well she done without top (any) trainers.

​what he said, also include various supplements etc
Aldi-das
There was a review of these in the October issue of Mens Running and they were considered to be good value for money. I have a pair of Avia running shoes (Asda brand) and I prefer them to my Duramos, it did require a few runs to break them in but afterwards they were fine. I do over 100 miles a month and I only ever use the more expensive brands for races and long runs.

The shoes won't make you hit your pb, but they can certainly stop you from achieving it. Getting cheap, nasty, unsupportive shoes is asking for injury since you are putting far more strain on your legs than is necessary. I'm sure you were fine in the army in your youth where your body can adapt much more easily and take more punishment, but you will regret it later down the line when your ankles, shins and knees are shot because your shoes weren't absorbing more of the impact for you.

So thats two running magazines endorses these !!!
You would seriously struggle to cling onto any street credibility you may have with these attached to your feet but if you only intend to go out after dark and spend your time in places where the local council have not maintained street lighting, they may tick your box !

Considering that most of the branded / expensive running shoes i have seen are ugly i dont see your point. these are running shoes and not fashionable trainers.
The 'non-premium' version go through at £7.50. I bought two pairs last week. The foam layer is thicker on the premium ones and the rubber is softer and from my experience with other running shoes I think they'd wear out faster than the non-premium ones. It had nothing to do with the price but the premium ones seemed like they were just window dressing and too 'bouncy' for want of a better word. Yes, I stood in Aldi jumping up and down and mock running and did not give a damn what people thought.

Just weighed one of them (£7.50 ones) and it's 302 grammes for a size 10 which is pretty good. And the ventilation is fine - you can see through the venting panels - even see your fingers inside from the outside. I'm one of them that thinks too much cushioning doesn't feel good. I did like it when I started running but once I built up those stabilisation and support muscles it changed.

And if you care what logo is on your daps when you're out then it's not the running you're really about, is it.
I would suggest that anyone intending to run over any reasonable distance on a regular basis has a gait analysis done before buying any running shoe - getting the correct support is crucial in avoiding injury problems down the line. Imagine these would be absolutely fine for a neutral gait
All trainers are designed for physical activity whether fashionable or not so I don't see your point and you couldn't get much uglier than the shoes in question so move on !
Adidas boost arent much more expensive, bought my wife some Adidas Questar boost for £18 off M&M delivered last month

Start from £25 presently with loads of styles from £29.99, free postage over £30 with code and running socks are a quid

Not many people buy trainers to actually run in them so you are in the minority there. I take my hat off to you though for charging up and down the aisles in Aldi to check for comfort with a £7.50 sports shoe on, as most shoppers in store must have raised eyebrows and the local nuthouse must have conducted a head count on their residents after receiving calls from concerned shoppers about a possible escapee !
£39.99 buys you one of the best running trainers in last few years

Adizero adios boost ~ the fastest Marathon ever was run in these In Berlin in 2013 so clearly favoured by the professionals

I'm one of the only people in my town with two eyes and a remaining tooth. I'm like George Clooney here but Sloth from Goonies when I go beyond the boundary. And they certainly don't like runners because it shows a degree of self-improvement and them hates thaaat. They chase you with pitchforks and flames. I'm getting the whole town fit in a way.
They are awful quality, I purchased ladies pair just for work I sit at desk all day and 3 weeks later the soles were split
they are actually going through at £3.79 at my local aldi .
ideal just for work
