The trainer trend is one long-term, comfy commitment we're more than happy to get behind. It's hard to miss the sneaker takeover that's stuck around for the past few seasons, and they're now cemented as the go-to and go-with-everything shoe choice. Yes, from ditsy-print dresses to business suits, anything goes, as long as the sneakers in question look box fresh. And when it comes to shopping sneakers, there's a clear divide of trainer tribes easily spotted sauntering down any high street. From clunky to chic and old-school favourites to the new names to know, we've done our research.
Nike's Air Max 95s are having a big moment, the names to know are Common Projects or Axel Arigato, and you can hear more about Veja right here. Whilst you've probably dabbled with chunky trainers and have been lured into a plethora of pastel, patterned and designers collabs, the key to making your trainer splurge most pocket-friendly is buying them in pristine white. Read on, as there's a trainer style in here for you, whatever your tribe.
