Where would we be without trainers? So versatile, so comfortable and probably one of the best inventions ever for our feet! There are so many to choose from, so how do we narrow down which ones we should really invest in? Here are some must-haves:
White Tennis Shoe
The classic, quintessential training shoe is the all-white tennis trainer. The original was the Chuck Taylor in the early 20h century but now the choice is seemingly endless. They are truly versatile and look as sharp when paired with jeans for smart casual styling as they do even with a suit! They will get mucky pretty quickly so consider the maintenance and make sure they are waterproofed. For some new clothes to go with those shiny new sneakers, check out Diesel Menswear from Louis Boyd
Sportswear has always met style, especially when you have brands like Adidas and Nike fighting it out. For hitting the gym or going for a run, you need your trainers to perform. They tend to be a bit chunkier with more of a sole than dress wear trainers so might not fit for work or social occasions but you’ll definitely not want to work out without specially designed performance trainers.
The All Black
Requiring less maintenance than their all white counterparts, all black trainers mean more time strutting and less time scrubbing. They are also sneaky enough to be worn to work and also make light work of the smart casual dress code.
