Scroll down to see what all the cool kids are wearing! Here are the kicks you need to cop now in order to join the real sneaker brigade (we’ve got you covered).
Well, if you are a true sneaker head (you literally count the sleeps till those new Yeezys or Nike Air Max drop) then you’ll have your feet in most of these kicks already…. but just in case you need a checklist, here are the trainer trends of 2017 (that the coolest girls are wearing right now). Whether they’re worn with a dress, a pair of cropped trousers, fringed-hem jeans, a pair of chinos, tracksuit pants or even a suit… these are a few standout trainers we’ve spotted on the street style stars this year.
(And before you scream “foul” because Stan Smiths don’t feature, the white trainer hasn’t disappeared completely… stay close!)
1. Converse high-tops
Converse is in every model-off-duty wardrobe. This year, we’ve noticed high-tops are very much back in and white is the most popular. Shop yours at Canal Walk Sportscene or Converse.
2. Adidas gazelles
Once a favourite of Kate Moss (so you can rest assured they’ll forever be in a “best of” list), these trainers have made a solid comeback this year. Shop your pair from Canal Walk’s Adidas Originals Store, Street Fever or Sportscene.
3. Pink trainers
We’re crushing on these blushing trainers available from Canal Walk’s fine sneaker stores:
– The Adidas Originals Superstar 80s Decon sneakers from Canal walk Sportscene
– Pink Suede Platform Puma’s from the Canal Walk Puma concept store
– Pink Nouveau Lace New Balance from the Canal Walk New Balance store
This brand is lit! Thanks to stylist Kate Foley, who wears her Vans so well (always paired with the prettiest dresses) and so often. Whether low-and-black versions or the high-top brightly coloured styles, you can bank that wearing a pair of these will add instant cool to your style.
Shops these from the Vans Concept Store at Canal Walk, as well as Sportscene and Street Fever.
5. Dads trainer
Okay so we not quite convinced that this chunky, white trainer will be done right by all, but thanks to Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid donning oversize ’80s tennis-style trainers, ALL the girls are now going in for this dad-style look… We will let you decide.
REEBOK CLASSICS, at Canal Walk Sportscene.
ASICS GEL-LYTE V at Canal Walk Asics Concept Store.
LACOSTE at Canal Walk SPITZ.
