Are You Making the Right Impression? at Last! the Shortest Day Is Behind Us - What Better Excuse to Buy Some Snazzy New Running Shoes


1. PUMA FAAS 500 [pounds sterling]75, puma.co.uk The Faas 500 is designed for neutral runners (those whose feet 'roll' correctly on impact), and is perfect for everyday training.

6. BROOKS ADRENALINE GTS 10 [pounds sterling]85, harrods.com Brooks is known for making shoes suited to endurance running, and the Adrenaline GTS - despite the name's sprint connotations - is no exception. …
