The best Lululemon trainers on saleLululemon/RED

When the first pair of Lululemon trainers landed online earlier this year, we were delighted that one of our go-to activewear brands was extending its offering to footwear.

The first Lululemon trainer to launch was the Blissfeel Running Shoe. Focusing on a better fit, supportive upper and every-run comfort, Lululemon claim its the first running shoe to be made based on the feedback of over a million women.

In fact, that's what makes the entire Lululemon footwear range so impressive - it's women-first footwear, made from scratch. While most athletic shoes are designed for a man's foot, and then altered for women - Lululemon's footwear is specifically designed for women. Through the research, development and testing process, real women weighed in to shape the final collection.

Read on to find out our honest review of each Lululemon trainer style.

Lululemon Blissfeel Running Shoe Review

The first trainer to land in Lululemon's footwear collection was the Blissfeel Running Shoe (£138). As an everyday running shoe it has a thick cushioned sole with a 9.5mm heel drop that offers support with every stride.

The Blissfeel is lightweight and comfortable but while I enjoyed a few short runs in the Blissfeel, as someone who overpronates I'm more suited to trainers specifically designed to stop the foot rolling inward. For those with neutral pronation though, the Blissfeelcould quickly become your favourite training shoe, whether you're running 5km or racking up the big miles.

Lululemon Chargefeel Workout Shoe Review

The second trainer in the Lululemon footwear range landed in July 2022. The Chargefeel Workout Shoe (£138) is Lululemon's first cross-trainer shoe. It's available in two variations, a low workout shoe and a mid workout shoe with a supportive mid-cut ankle collar.

When I tried the Chargefeel Low, I was seriously impressed by just how supportive it is for a range of activities, from HIIT workouts to strength training. The midfoot frame provides support for running and walking, while the pressure-mapped outsole boosts traction and flexibility. Lululemon claim the dual-density midsole is springy enough for running but agile enough for training. I mainly used these trainers for strength training, HIIT classes and long walks, and felt supported and comfortable during all activities.

The Chargefeel Low and Mid is available in a range of colours so you don't have to sacrifice style for functionality, too. I sized down half a size on this pair and it was the perfect fit.

Lululemon Strongfeel Training Shoe Review

The Strongfeel Training Shoe (£118) is the latest addition to the Lululemon footwear collection. It was designed to help you feel confident and connected as you lift, without feeling weighed down. The low-profile cushioning and multidirectional traction work to provide a stable, powerful platform - ideal for weight lifting. And, the small heel to toe drop of 6mm ensures you feel secure and connected to the ground.

I tested the dark grey (Anchor) iteration of these shoes, which was a nice addition to my bright and bold trainer collection - however, if you want a more playful hue, these training shoes are also available in pink and yellow.

But, it's not all style with this pair. They performed well too and have since become one of my go-to shoes for strength training sessions. They gave me a flat and stable surface for weight lifting, with a soft upper that provided plenty of support without feeling too tight or restrictive. Personally, I would have liked a little more support around the heel and ankle but overall I felt confident as I moved in these shoes - and I've been wearing them for strength training ever since!
