Fashion’s fascination with trainers was firmly reestablished last year, successfully quashing any comfort qualms by offering a stylish yet snug footwear solution, suitable for even the most fashion conscious of individuals. With a style and colour to suit the most hectic and relaxed of days, this footwear favourite doesn’t look as though it’s walking out of our lives any time soon. Where trainers are concerned, worries should be pushed to the back of your mind because with ample choice, there is a style to suit everyone. Trainers no longer mean sweaty PE lessons and long family walks – trainers mean style, comfort and being super fashion savvy all day, every day. Buying the perfect pair is the first hurdle and deciding how to wear them is a whole different ball game which we’re more than happy to help with. Whether you’re heading to the gym, going for Sunday brunch or packing your city break suitcase, they’re definitely worth the investment.
The adidas ZX Flux ADV is a very popular and versatile style that has taken the trainer scene by storm. The monochrome appearance provides a simple and classic finish and the futuristic and cutting-edge side tongue design means it is set to be one of this season’s biggest hits. Pair with jeans and a plain/slogan tee for a cool, calm and collected kind of vibe.
The Reebok Classic has made an extraordinary comeback in recent months and with metallic being a trend in itself, mixing it with the latest Reebok craze hits the style nail on the head. The iconic design combined with gold metallic is the perfect way to jazz up an outfit. Paired with dungarees or bleached denim will ensure you’re well on your way to serious style.
Another adidas ZX Flux ADV, but this time a more simple and clean-cut version in crisp white. Fresh white trainers are enough to smarten up the most casual outfit, making your style seem effortlessly cool. White trainers are a definite SS16 staple and are capable of creating the best style and comfort combination you could possibly dream of.
If you want your trainer game to be on point, you may want to opt for something a little more plush. Stella McCartney offer a fantastic Pure Boost range with the most sleek and sophisticated finish. Traditional laces have been replaced with a wide elastic band for optimum ease and snug comfort while ultra soft cushioning makes for a light workout or stroll at any time.
Be bold and make a statement with a splash of colour. The Adicolour trainers showcase a mono approach to an adidas Superstar classic, offering something a little more exciting to shout about. An icon of hip-hop street style, this version preserves the signature details such as the traditional shell toe while creating a head-turning style in true Adicolour fashion.
Fancy treating yourself? Invest in designer with a pair of lavish Michael Kors trainers. These particular pair of silver embossed beauties are the perfect showstopper this season. The side branding and colour scheme keep things simple while the mix of textures make them a little more snazzy. The perfect subtle colour pop to pair with some skinnies and an oversized tee.
If practical and comfortable is your thing, why not opt for this contemporary and athletic combination from Nike. The material allows your feet to breathe while the padded ankle cuffs ensure a secure fit. The velcro makes slipping in and out of them totally fuss-free and the bright red means you’ll be spotted from a mile off which is great if you’re heading out for a run.
Another Adicolour option, this time in a striking shock mint mono. The colour is fun and quirky and really makes a statement. The classic adidas Superstars have been reinvented and this colour certainly isn’t for the faint hearted. A pair of ripped jeans would perfectly complement this brave fashion choice to keep things clean and polished but totally enviable.
