a sports shoe with a rubber sole that is worn casually or for doing exercise
What is a "trainer"?
A trainer, used primarily in British English, is a type of athletic shoe designed for sports and physical activities, similar to what is known as a "sneaker" or "athletic shoe" in American English. Trainers are typically made from lightweight and breathable materials, such as mesh and synthetic leather, and may feature additional design elements such as rubber soles, shock-absorbing cushioning, and extra support in high-impact areas. They are designed to provide comfort, stability, and traction for various sports and physical activities, such as running, jogging, or training at the gym. Trainers come in a range of styles and colors and can be worn not only for sports but also for everyday casual wear. Choosing the right pair of trainers that fit well and suit the intended activity is important for both comfort and injury prevention.
