Keepin’ it Casual

So many celebs have been bossing the whole casual vibe lately, and it’s definitely something we can lend a helping hand with given our vast collection of casual kicks. Casual doesn’t mean style has to be compromised, it means embracing killer comfort and serious style simultaneously. Whatever your style, cast your eyes over our popular pick of contenders. Here we go…

The Reebok Club is killing it right now, so this style combined with a suede finish is a serious game changer where casual footwear is concerned.

Reebok x Gigi Hadid: #PerfectNever

Reebok came back hard last year and 2017 seems no different. Their #PerfectNever campaign with the gorgeous Gigi Hadid launches today and epitomises empowerment in its finest form. The campaign encourages women to defy expectations and celebrate their imperfections, which is a positively powerful message. Alongside this, the diamond element of the pack adds a touch of subtle sparkle to the collection, which is the perfect way to be a story worth telling. If you fancy taking a sneak peek of what we’ve got our hands on, keep scrolling.

Untitled design-90We’ve got six styles from the whole collection, made up of three Classic styles and three Club styles in white, black and silver glitter – serious sass, we know. As it’s launch day we wanted to showcase two of our ultimate fave styles, an understated white Club with a small sparkly injection and an all over unicorn mermaid glitter vibe kinda Club. The Club is most probably one of Reebok’s most coveted styles, and these little additions are certainly no exception. We’re seriously loving this whole diamond vibe and we’re definitely ready to join the #PerfectNever club.

The hint of sparkle on the heel of the sophisticated court silhouette has the potential to glam up any outfit in seconds. Reebok have taken glam to a whole new level with an entire silver glitter upper. The sparkle lace detail is the icing on top of the cake and the cushioned bottom will keep you comfy all day or all night long. The white pair retail at £64.99 while the glitter pair are £74.99 – a worthy, and somewhat sparkly, investment if you ask us.

Just Dropped: Puma Swan Pack

We’re obsessed with anything Kylie Jenner so when we found out the reality TV star was teaming up with Puma to be the face of their new Swan Pack, we were hooked. The Swan Pack is a continuation of Puma’s ‘Do You’ campaign that launched last year, and these particular styles are inspired by the grace and strength of ballet which combines performance, functionality and style that Puma believes in. The campaign aims to inspire women around the world to exude confidence and do exactly what they want to do which is a message we’re totally down with.

Puma has officially teamed up with the New York City Ballet to launch the new Swan Pack collection and we love how striking yet feminine it is.

A monochrome feather print feel with a small and tasteful dose of iridescent detailing is at the core of the Swan Pack. The collection is comprised of striking silhouettes with subtle feminine details, creating the perfect balance between performance and design which Puma effortlessly delivers with each and every collection. We’re talking about some serious athleisure vibes.

Fiercely feminine, the lightweight and laceless Fierce Swan Trainers perfectly offset the black block colour with a crisp white sole and prominent iridescent detailing. With printed mesh detail on the toe and an elasticated strap, the dynamic design features a padded collar for premium comfort. If you’re more for all black everything and seriously sleek, the Fierce Strap Swan Trainers feature a supportive midsole and grooved outsole for fast and dynamic movement. The feather print is subtly feminine while maintaining a slight urban and androgynous edge.

A more classic silhouette, the Match Swan Trainers offer a killer combo of velvet and leather which give off some seriously sleek vibes. Featuring feather print mesh detail on the toe and iridescent detailing on the toe box, tongue and side, these trainers help you achieve the perfect level of daytime glam. For a much sportier yet equally sassy affair, the Sock Swan Trainers feature a sharper silhouette for an effortlessly edgy look. The padded tongue, elasticated heel and trinomic outsole mean you don’t have to compromise comfy for cool.
