I have to reorder some RM footwear. Im looking for the best trainer style or at least lightweight for me to order from? Any advise please. I cant see where there are any photos anywhere

Tried them all. Only get on with the Magnums which are a bit heavier but comfortable.

They're all utterly useless at offering any cushioning.
Once out on delivery I currently wear a pair of thoroughly knackered Adidas trainers with worn down soles which are well overdue for the bin, yet they're still so much more more comfortable and offer far more impact cushioning than any RM trainers.

Walking my 15 mile marathon would be more comfortable if I was to walk it bare footed & stepped on the odd stone or broken glass, Royal Mail shoes/boots are truly shocking, not fit for purpose, that's because RM like to look after & care for their staff

I found the Magnums the worst of the current footwear, it feels like my feet are being pushed forward crunching the toes, some others in the office like them like you.
When I joined RM the shoe issue was a simple black boot which was lightweight, waterproof, you could put them on as new without the need to break them in at all.

I like the waterproof anvil trainer. I've worn these two years straight and no issues at all other than the insole wearing down which I replaced myself. Good pair of shoes

There is only one item of Royal Mail footwear worth having. The Magnum Bandera (with Michelin soles). Comfortable and non-slip in the wet. What more can you want?
Put your own insoles in of course.

If you have feet even just slightly wider than narrow, the banderas are the way to go. As I said on another thread, I had to go a size bigger than I usually wear.

I have some Italian boots they are comfy especially walking backwards Aboutbll but I had magnums boots they were better the shoes were the best!
I'd agree with the Bandera option (and I've got wide feet).
Don't know what the argument about wearing HEAVY footwear is all about? FFS what do you think Squaddies wear to walk bloody miles? I sometimes think RM is Full of Ultra Marathon Runners, who are all concerned with shaving ever little bit of weight off everything!
Mind you there was a school of thought that youngsters couldn't get on with Combat Boots because they'd grown up in trainers (probably with the untied laces stuffed down the side) and never worn proper shoes, so they developed weak ankles.
