I'm with Cloggy (not in that way). I don't own a pair of "trainers". If I did, they would be a pair of the black Adidas ones with the three white stripes on the sides that everyone had at school. Everyone but me.

Well they're very comfy and they don't feel heavy, no idea how quick they dry really as I've never got them very wet. If I've been out in the rain in them they're dry by the next time I wear them the next day though.

I normally get proper Approach shoes for this purpose but got a grey pair of the ones dibs posted but for 14.99, they were difficult not to buy at that price as I only had time to go to Sports Direct before my last trip. They are surprisingly good for no money.

I wear an old pair of Mizuno runners around the house, but I'd never wear them outside. For general going outside like to the pub or away for the weekend I wear TNF Hedgehog Fastpacks in black. Various marketing departments tell me these are called GTX or approach shoes.

GTX = goretex. It's the fabric used.

Well, it's the membrane that's usually between fabrics/upper on a shoe.

I've got some Sperry Topsider CVO leather things & I really like them, but if I'm scrabbling about or walking the hounds it'll be my nike zooms or my columbia ones depending on the level of jungliness

How about some of those TOMS?
I had some of their fabric shoes, not the slipper ones, and they were comfortable and kept my feet cool.

I found the TOMS site.

I don't think I've ever seen something as shit as those shoes.

To buy those shoes you would have had to been on a massive guilt trip.

Some are listed as vegan which makes me crosser than it should.

Same for me. I have some Hagloffs black approach shoes and Adidas Swift R that I happily wear in public.

Totally understand that, and forgot they're a bit hand-wringing!
I bought from the highstreet so wasn't guilted into them. 'Ones I had were quite good, but little did I realise how I was being perceived!

Salamon approach shoe things. The karrimor things someone posted earlier are guff, I had a pair ages ago before i realised Mike Ashley owned the brand, they fell apart at the heel and stabbed my foot with some exposed shitty plastic after a week. Crap.

I bought some trainers in the end, some running ones that weigh nothing and are all well-flexy etc, and aren't eye-damagingly lairy:

They are dead comfy and not awful super-technical, not are they pseudo sport pub trainers.

Mono Fusion ones were in the bargain bin next to the tills. So no danger there, fortunately.
