Win a pair of Saucony Trainer 80

To show off about the forthcoming launch of Proper Issue 14 we’re giving away six pairs of Saucony Trainer 80.

The Trainer 80 dates back 33 years to a time when running was called jogging and the people who did it all had impressive moustaches. These trainers put us in mind of an over-zealous games teacher with problems at home. It is – how you say – a strong look?

The Footwork Issue of Proper will feature all manner of trainery bits and bobs, not to mention some great stories written by our network of witty cranks about jobs they did years ago. It’ll be out soon, watch this space and all that.

All you need to do to enter our competition is answer the following question.

Saucony is named after Saucony Creek in Pennsylvania.

If you could set up a footwear brand with a watery story behind its name, what would it be called and why?

It could be something as small as a puddle on your street or as vast as the Atlantic. Ideally something creative and funny.

Post your entry in the comments of this page.

The best six will be chosen by our independent panel of adjudicators and the comp runs for a month. We’ll announce the winners in the first week of October, at which point you can all start growing your ‘taches ready for Movember/wearing these Trainer 80s.
