The Triumph 8 is one of the most cushioned shoes out there so it’s a surprise that it’s as responsive as it is. This makes it great for heavier runners taking on tricky terrain. What’s more, the dangerously orange ViziPro colourway and reflective details on the upper will keep you visible during the darkest winter nights.

The Supernova Glide 2 feels very stable due to a wider flare on the inside of the heel and deep flex grooves. The seamless upper and snug fit makes the shoe extremely comfortable and it’s responsive enough to make light work of the loosest forest trails. The reflective piping ensure you’ll get noticed in the dark.

The 828 is essentially built for racing, which makes it ideal for shorter, faster runs and the loud orange colour is easy to pick up in fading light. For a race shoe it offers a surprising amount of heel protection and cushioning. What's more, the Lightening Dry upper means that although your foot will get wet almost immediately in a downpour, it'll dry quickly.

Light, super-cushioned and so bright you'll be visible from space. The rather pricey Turbo+ 10 features a bevelled heel puck that promotes a smooth touch down and stops your foot from moving in an injurious way, and a full inner sleeve that gives a snug, comfortable fit. Unlike the tech, its got a devisive look – fans of Kanye West will love it, but it'll make Coldplay admirers shudder.
