The trainer that lasts 1,000 miles

It's not news that will get couch potatoes jumping for joy, but it's good news indeed for Britain's Jogaholics. For a trainer has been invented that will last for more than 1,000 miles.

UK Gear has developed the shoe with the British Army, and from next month all 450 instructors at the Army Physical Training Corps base will sport them. Until now there hasn't been a trainer tough enough to sustain the kind of paces the Army puts it through - experts usually suggest running shoes should be replaced after 350 miles. Thanks to their Dureva sole - built on a unique molecular structure - the new super-sneaker will see a wearer through at least 38 marathons. Or an awful lot of walks to the takeaway.
