Diadora Seb Impact running shoe

If you’re a hefty pie-scoffer like me, then slipping on a pair of these isn’t going to help you attain glory in the 800 metres, but they will make your pudgy clod-hoppers look damn cool.

Developed between 1985 and 1986 when the eponymous Seb (Coe) was winning golds and silver in the long distance events, the shoe was a revolution in running technology. Apparently. Something to do with being able to insert weights into the sole. Not sure if I see the point in that – wouldn’t it slow you down?

Made from Nylon and pigskin, the Seb impact are available from Oki-Ni for £65.
