Finding running shoes that you can wear for both fitness and girlboss moments is a big win.
The secret to finding footwear that does both is for it to be in neutral colourways. As much as the pair of rainbow galaxy-patterned Nikes might catch your eye, think about how it will work with your officewear. And of course, pick something with a lot of support. Look for thicker and cushioned soles.
New Balance Fresh Foam X 860v13
For comfort without compromising style, give the New Balance Fresh Foam X 860v13 ($230) a try. The extra padded sole on the heel gives you a bit of extra height and a lot of cushioning for high impact activity. With sustainability in mind, New Balance has used 50% recycled materials to create the upper of this pair to support your foot and reduce its carbon footprint.
Grab a blazer, White & Co’s Original Scoop Neck ($49.95) and a pair jeans to take these into the office.
PUMA PWRFRAME Training Shoes
A happy in between for slimline sneakers and chunky stompers, the Puma PWRFRAMEs ($140) are one of the best running shoes for a versatile training routine — cardio, resistance or low impact. On the soles you’ll find PUMAGRIP, which uses a range of rubber textures to give you better traction on different terrains.
Switch the athleisure for a pair of tailored ankle-biter trousers and a sweater to get your office on.
Nike React Infinity Run FK 3
With the uppers built from Nike’s signature fly knit material, a pair of React Infinity Run FK 3 ($230) is lightweight but supportive. If you’re currently on the LISS (low intensity steady state) grind, these are the running shoes for you. Why? Because the slight rocker and amount of cushioning makes the pair built for long distances.
Rock this with a satin skirt and a baby tee for your next casual Friday ‘fit.
Hoka Bondi 8
The pair from Hoka are a beginner running shoe that has tonnes of cushioning to protect your feet on all terrains. But they’re also stylish enough to pull off the chunky sneakers trend.
Achieve office comfort chic with the Bondi 8s ($269.99), a satin skirt or wide legged pants.
Under Armour HOVR™ Phantom 3
At first glance, the silhouette of the Under Armour HOVR™ Phantom 3 ($240) running shoes looks similar to the Yeezy 350s with more personality. The shoe features a range of textures but still remains sleek and supportive. And if you love to go running after a rainy evening and find yourself stepping in a puddle, the Under Armour Storm technology on the upper sockliner actually repels water and maximizes breathability.
PUMA Softride Enzo Evo Nova Shine
No need to pack a second pair of shoes when running from home to office because the PUMA Softride Enzo Evo Nova Shine ($130) easily transitions from pavement pounder to boardroom-ready. The lilac colourway is a fresh addition to an all-black outfit and the thick sole cushion gives you extra support for long wear.
Nike E-Series 1.0
Inspired by zen sand gardens, Nike’s E-Series 1.0 ($160) feels like the perfect shoes to take on a trip to Japan. Each of the available colourways incorporates fresh-to-the-eyes nude shades that easily match with any activewear or office outfit.
