These shoes are made for walking – choosing your trainers for spring
At last the sun is shining and the rain doesn’t seem to be making as much of an appearance as it has been recently. The change in season welcomes a change in footwear from heavy dark practical shoes to lighter more stylised trainers that can finish off your get up perfectly! Here is a selection of trainers that will put a bounce in your step!
Classic brand Converse has developed this smashing pair of navy and white trainers with the traditional star logo detail. The robust design incorporates a rubber sole and metal eyelets with a low rise cut allowing you to wear them with trousers or shorts depending on the weather conditions. With Converse it goes without saying that the longevity of the brand has been secured by its guarantee of comfort and enduring style.
Once the favourite of skateboarders; Vans have evolved to produce trainers that will suit many occasions. Described as Andorra and marshmellow with waffle tread and heel you would be mistaken for thinking that we are describing a tasty sweet breakfast. The deck shoes design is much more Sunday lunch than pounding the streets burning off fat at midnight. A pair of these in your wardrobe will add both a comfortable and casual twist to your feet.
Understated and cool these off white suede and leather trainers from Religion are reminiscent of the trainers worn in the heavy rave era. The subtle detail created by different textures such as suede, leather, waffle and bumps just radiates style and sophistication. Another great combination of comfort and taste that will certainly allow the wearer to keep moving.
For those of you who want to wear trainers to train in the gym or rush around the squash courts then New Balance is the brand for you. We have chosen this lime green and grey pair as an example because the colours are so vivid. New Balance trainers are available in a range of different foot supports and styles specifically to help you to choose the right pair for your sporting activities. Of course those who like the design but not the gym these trainers look equally as good with jeans and tracksuit bottoms.
These blue suede trainers from Hummel, which are low rise with suede uppers and rubber soles, are a combination of traditional trainer and old fashioned plimsoll. The light design results in a comfortable trainer that can be worn casually with shorts or more formally with jeans. The low cut allows you to wear the shoes with trainer socks and enjoy the sun in your favourite summer gear.
