Teva Mush Frio Ballerina

sportsister-loves-july--musPrice: £35.00

Stockists: www.teva.co.uk

When these first arrived in the office, they divided opinion, with some of us thinking they looked a bit like slippers! But once we tested them in the great outdoors they became the shoe of choice for kicking about the campsite and playing on the beach.

They were also used for shorter walks, including four miles across varied terrain and they hit the mark for this too, making them a good all rounder for outdoor leisure activities. They are super comfy, easy to slip on and off, quick drying and practical.

When one of our favourite outdoor brands announced that it was launching a new range of women’s running gear, it was a happy day in the Sportsister office.

And we were not disappointed by Canadian brand Arc’teryx’s new Endorphin collection. With the clean lines, attention to detail and fantastic quality we’ve come to expect from Arc’teryx it’s now a firm favourite in our running wardrobe.
