Sport shoes running kit review

I never was into exercising, I hated PE at school, if I had a gym membership I would cancel it 2 months later.

Few years ago my husband bought a treadmill and I actually started using it more than he did. I liked the fact that I'm in the comfort of my own home and I can decide when I' m ready and want to use it.

When I got pregnant I was determined to stay healthy and fit and if you remember from my bump updates I used treadmill every day. My priorities slightly shifted since we had L but I'm hoping that one day L will be happy to play on her own and I will have few minutes to spare for running.

Few months ago Sport shoes contacted me and offered to review their products. I thought that it's an amazing opportunity to get myself a proper running kit.

I have opted for:


The Nike Victory Contour Women's Support Bra is designed for a compression fit and locked in feel. This Nike Lady Victory Contour Support Bra features a lightweight chest band that eliminates bulk, a bonded seam that provides support and lift that helps you for medium-impact sports. It also features mesh panels on the back for improved ventiliation, and Dri-FIT fabric that wicks away moisture to help keep you dry and comfortable.

It feels quite tight and holds breasts quite nicely which gives them support whilst running or walking, plus no need for a push-up bra!
I would definitely wear it everyday if I wasn't breastfeeding!


Made of soft pique fabric that helps you move with ease, this polo shirt is extremely comfortable to wear and it also features an enhance moisture management with pique knit designed for keeping sweat away.
I was always a big fan of polo shirts, I'm planning to wear it with Nike trousers I picked not just for running but to play gold as well.

PANTS (£17.49)

Designed for everyday workouts. These versatile trousers deliver an extra-soft feel with a flared hem and body-skimming fit through the hip and thigh. And, they're comfortable enough to wear all day, from studio to street.
Slightly looser-fitting, this pants feature a flared leg to form to your curves. The inside waistband is made of powermesh fabric for a compression effect that slims, flattens and flexes while helping to eliminate creases and lines for a smooth, flattering look. The rise was lowered in the front and tilted up at the back for perfect coverage, no matter how you move. To enhance your curves, a subtle v-shaped seam connects the waist to the legs, and seams were moved back to sculpt the line of the leg.

Straight away after I put them on I thought that they flatter my figure, hide all the bumps and lumps due to a high and wide waistband and stretchy material. 
I'm not a big fan of flared trousers in general but in this case it certainly helps to look skinnier. 
When my mum saw me wearing them she thought that I'm wearing work trousers which shows that they can nicely blend with you everyday activities. 
Trousers also have a small waistband flap pocket for cash, ID/credit cards or even media player, which is great and suitable for those you don't know where to put small items whilst on the go.


This jacket delivers excellent comfort and great performance.
The hoodie is specially designed to keep you warm with French terry fabric designed to wick moisture away from your body keeping you at your best.

I was wearing it with a thin t-shirt underneath and a thin waterproof jacket, it was more than enough to keep me warm during cold, rainy days or evenings.

SOCKS  (£3.49)

The Saucony Ultra Cushion Anklet Running Socks offer soft, plush cushioning ensuring your feet are comfortable throughout your run. The RunDry Control provides maximum breathability, while also keeping your feet dry with its moisture transportation technology. A irritaion is reduced and a secure fit is ensured through the reduction of movement provided by the socks' engineered arch stability control.

I could never have imagined that socks can provide support and feel so soft and comfortable, after few washes they look like new.


The Saucony Jazz Original (Retro) Women's Running Shoe is one of the most popular shoes amongst fans of the 80s. Available in a broad range of colours, the Jazz Original utilises a comfortable and soft fabric upper lining that provides an optimally comfortable ride.
For grip on slippery surfaces, the design of the outsole (Triangular Lug and XT600) provides ample traction off road and robust durability on-road. Wherever your run takes you - run in comfort, style and confidence.

I can't express enough how much I like my new running shoes. These are the best of the bunch!
They not just look funky, they are extremely comfortable. They feel soft and cushioned, it's springy sole makes me faster when I walk and run ( the latter is very rear now unfortunately). The only negative point I found- they are slippery, therefore I would suggest wearing them when it's not raining.

Overall, I am quite happy with items and their price tags. I can certainly recommend Sport Shoes as you can find good quality products for a small price.
