When the trainer trend really took hold about 5 or 6 years ago, we all heaved a sigh of relief since looking good whilst feeling great had never been so easy. There’s nothing worse than sore feet thanks to shoes that rub and torture our tootsies so no wonder we’ve all embraced our trendy trainers! Once again for this season the catwalk was full of trainers so if you haven’t already, then it’s time to get shopping for a great pair of fashion trainers for this summer. And if you’ve been lacking a bit of inspiration, then you should check out our favourites below.
Budget: M&S Floral Trainers, £29.50
You don’t always have to hit the big brands to find a gorgeous pair of trainers, and this lovely pair from high street legends M&S proves. The summer is the perfect time to wear a pair of gleaming white trainers that will set your tan and your light coloured jeans off to perfection, and this chunky pair will also give you a little bit more height whilst simultaneously helping to make your legs look slimmer. The main reason as to why we love these trainers so much though is thanks to their on-trend floral embroidery that really helps them to stand out. The bright colours are set off perfectly against the white background, and if you are looking for an everyday pair of trainers for this summer that won’t break the bank, then these could be the ones for you.
Mid-range: PUMA R698 Lilac Satin Trainers, £120
For a pair of trainers that you know are good quality and that will be good for your feet too, you can’t beat a pair from a sports brand, just like PUMA. For a little something different though, we love that these are made from satin and feature an adorable and girly bow. They are also available in cream and pink which means that whatever colour you pick, you’ll be tapping into the key pastel trend that is really prevalent this season. These gorgeously girly trainers are available at Office, so if you’re going to shop online for them, check out an Office discount code first to ensure that you get the best deal.
Designer: Vivienne Westwood Tiger Trainers, £320
If you really want to splurge on a stunning pair of drop-dead gorgeous trainers, then this amazing pair from innovative and out-there British designer Vivienne Westwood could be the ones for you. A simple white trainer is transformed into something truly spectacular thanks to the addition of a 3D tiger’s head along complete with gold fangs. Also available in a black suede material, we preferred the bright white for summer days when you can team these trainers with skinny jeans to show the trainers off to perfection or with a fun and flirty summer dress to complete the ideal contrast. While these are pricier than your average trainer, view these as an investment piece that simply scream designer!
