Summer Shoedrobe SALE Staples

Who doesn’t love a bargain? Whether you’ve been eyeing up a certain pair of kicks for months, can’t stay away from the shops due to being a self-diagnosed shopaholic or simply fancy treating yourself, the phrase SUMMER SALE is music to a lot of people’s ears – right? We’ve picked four of our favourite female and male sale staples you can get your hands on right now.

Let’s be honest, the metallic trend is still on fire. An iconic adidas design has evolved into this gorgeous version of the Stan Smith sneaker. Featuring rose gold metallic uppers, you’ll be slaying the style scene with a quirky dose of modern metallic attitude. Reduced from £94.99 to £59.00 we’ve currently got all sizes in stock, but move quick to secure your metallic fix.

New Balance is nailing understated silhouettes right now so we’re certain you’ll want to snap a pair up in the sale. Support and durability is at the forefront of the 530 design with a core focus on the soft pastel hues in a gorgeous powder blue. You can secure these a place in your kicks closet for £69, currently available in sizes 3, 6 and 7 if you want New Balance to be your new BFF.

If designer is a bit of you then feast your eyes on this killer Kendall + Kyle discount. You can bag the Braydin trainers for £99 instead of £139, styled with a technical mixed-knit sock upper to inject a healthy dose of sports luxe into your summer shoedrobe. Can you really resist this sale steal from two fierce fashion icons? We think not.

We couldn’t launch our summer sale without a flatform fix, could we? The Puma Basket Platform Explosive trainers draw inspiration from the grunge fashion game in the 90s. Combined with a silver metallic upper, this silhouette represents a strong collaboration between two of the most iconic fashion movement of that era. At £59 instead of £79.99, it would be rude not to.

The Tubular Shadow has been one of the biggest launches from adidas this year, and you can bag this crisp white pair for £59. A fashion focused fusion of the iconic 93 runner and cutting edge style, the Tubular innovates a classic yet fashion-forward design. The unique nubuck and suede combo creates a standout silhouette, available in sizes 9-12.

Enter another incredibly well received launch from adidas – the EQT. Specialising in quality and a considered design to enhance an athlete’s performance, this silhouette is as stylish as it is practical. Featuring a nylon black upper and a white sole, the unique eyelet design and three stripes make it a standout sale contender for only £79 instead of £110.

The Old Skool has taken the fashion scene by storm this season and it’s set to stay. Being worn by celebs and influencers alike, this silhouette from Vans is certainly a shoedrobe must-have this summer. Combining fashion with function to create the ultimate stylish sneaker, originally worn as skate shoes, the £49 tan and white leather classics will certainly not disappoint.

Pastels are dominating the style scene right now and Reebok has injected this trend into their infamous Club silhouette. Premium suede takes on a pastel hue, combined with a vintage coloured sole to give you that old skool edge with a modern twist for only £49. Pick a classic that shows your true colours this season.
