Trainers have been an integral part of every casual outfit for decades, and now, thankfully, they have bridged the gap between smart and casual. Now this may not be to everyone’s taste, but I for one am over the moon that the attitude towards trainers has shifted. Purists out there will say that crisp white trainers have no place sitting proudly at the bottom of a tailored suit, but I say, why not?
Clothing, after all, is about comfort, and what’s more comfortable than a pair of trainers? Whether your style is a super quirky, high-end designer shoe or you lean more towards a muted, minimal aesthetic, there’s a huge variety of choice on the market nowadays. Each season brings waves more of impressive trainers to cater to all tastes. Because of this, I have put together a selection of my favourite new trainers to hit the market in the last few weeks. Granted, not all will work with a suit, but all guarantee comfort, which as we discussed earlier, is key.
