I’ve recently joined a bootcamp exercise club and quickly realised my existing trainers were not going to be up to the job of working out in a slightly muddy field, I was slipping and sliding all over the place!

The trainer recommended I get a pair of Salomons and it was a great choice. Went for the blue and white size 9s (I’m a size 8.5 usually) and they fit fine.

They have a cool lacing system that means you just slip the shoes on a pull a little toggle to tighten them up, no laces for you to trip on.

In use these have been brilliant, they offer loads of grip, a massive improvement over my previous trainers, you can feel them grip the ground when you dig in.

The grips are far apart making these easy to clean after use, handy as they can collect a lot of mud.

One thing to be warned about, these are not waterproof, you’ll see in the video review I pop a shoe under the tap and come out with a very soggy sock!  This has happened a number of times in use where the grass field I’ve used these on has been damp.
