It’s that time of the year when even the most exercise-phobic among us dust off our workout wear and head to the gym to work off those Christmas chocolates and start our New Year fitness regime. And while sweating in an over-crowded gym isn’t everyone’s idea of a perfect evening, there is one bright side to all this exercise; you can buy some new trainers. Here are a few of our favourite pairs.
