Women's trainers, sporty elegance with a quirky twist.
It has been some time now since women's trainers were only to be seen within the confines of leisure centres. Once outside, they even found their way onto the catwalks, revisited by the most prestigious designers. Chic and sophisticated, trainers are sneaking into more and more places you would not expect to see them, paired with skirts, for example.
This section includes both "high tops" and sneakers with six pairs of eyelets. Although we can, of course, find classic white trainers, originality is also on the cards. Certain stylish designs are enhanced with bright colours and prints, like gingham and zebra print. Women's trainers don leather and canvas, but also bolder materials, like spangles and velvet. Whether you are actually planning on doing some exercise or just hankering after original shoes for original shoes' sake, women's trainers will satisfy all your expectations.
If you are sporty, you will probably turn to Nike, Adidas or Puma trainers, which will help you in your athletic endeavours. Fashionistas are more likely to fall for designs arising from one-off collaborations or limited series, including the Puma X Rihanna trainers and the Converse X Comme des Garçons sneakers. You can also choose a pair of trainers with a less sporty look, like the shoes with oversized soles by Rick Owens and futuristic pieces by Alexander McQueen, who was one of the first designers to take sneakers into the realms of haute couture. Alternatively, you could opt for Christian Louboutin's versions of trainers, adorned with studs or sequins.
