We bang on a lot about sneakers, but we don't need to justify that. No longer for simply working out, sporty footwear is now just as commonplace during fashion week as it is on any given street in any given city. But while the fashion crowd might love "dad" sneakers or Balenciaga's "ugly" trainers right now, others just want to wear chic but comfortable shoes—and that's cool too. Luckily, there are a few classic sneakers that work with every outfit in your wardrobe, and for lots of different personal tastes. We hunted down six that are not only super versatile but even under £120‚ and considering some designer kicks will set you back £600 or more, what's not to love? Prepare to discover the best trainers you'll ever own and how to wear them.
Jeans are a usual pairing for these classic sneakers, but both cropped and skinnies work. Try wearing them with dresses, too, for a pared-back look.
Smart suit trousers and joggers work with these. Mark our words: Reeboks will continue to be big next season—helped in no small part by Gigi Hadid's recent endorsement.
