I am this product of decathlon second time and I am quite happy with the quality of the product.I recommend this brand for sports products very confidently.
True test will be how they wear. Similar pair bought about a year ago were supremely comfortable but after 6 months of hard use I had to glue the end tip back on. Also the protective area over the big toe was too small and failed to prevent the inner lining wearing through after 9 months.
For starters, I'm more of a walker than a jogger...though I do sometimes jog through the park during my daily 2 or 3-mile walk outings. I was a regular ASICS wearer (for great cushioning), but got sick of paying £75+ when the mesh on the toe kept wearing out far too quickly. So I gave these Kalenjis a try at £24.99. Note that I did buy half a size larger & then added a cheap gel insole (£3.50 off Amazon) because I have sensitive knees and wanted to maximise cushioning....which worked perfectly, no knee pain at all. At the start, I wasn't too impressed with the wear on the inner lining (either side of the heel), which started to deteriorate after just 6 weeks. However, this didn't really affect the comfort of the shoe (and I taped up the hole in the lining anyway). All-in-all I got a full 9 months wear out of a pair of these, so well over 600 miles I recon - and I weigh 190lbs/86kg - which is absolutely fantastic for a £24.99 shoe. So I've just bought another 2 pairs of these (and some more cheapo gel insoles off Amazon), to last me for the next 18 months or so. Sorry, but I couldn't personally tell you how the trainers perform without the addition of gel insoles I'm afraid, as I've never tried them without, but I've found the formula that works for me...and saves me lots of money to boot ;)

Very good for running
The shoe is very comfortable. I have been using the same for a month and found it very good. The price is very reasonable like all the Decathlon products. Value for money!

We're glad you liked our product so much! Thanks for the recommendation! Our Run Active Grip shoes feature an EVA midsole and our CS cushioning technology which makes your run that much more comfortable. The 6mm lugs on the outsole give you plenty of "grip" for light trail running as well.
If you're looking for something more technical, you can try our Kiprun Trail TR shoe which also features our CS cushioning technology and our new Kalensole as well. It also has our K-Only technology which adapts to all stride patterns and a pocket on the top of the shoe tongue where you can tuck your laces in to prevent them from getting caught on vegetation while running!
