JD KING OF TRAINERS: ALWAYS ON POINT

Monday 27th February 2023, UK: JD the leading retailer for youth fashion and sports brands lives up to its namesake, droppin’ the latest and greatest from the hottest brands in the game with the King of Trainers campaign. Sneaker season never stops, so JD is here to keep that rotation looking fresh – serving up heat for men, women, and kids.  

THE EVERYDAY ICONS 

Step out in Swoosh with Nike’s iconic Airmax 90s, 95s and 97s. Rooted in running history, these trainers blend revolutionary Air tech with street-ready designs. adidas Originals has got matchday-inspired design nailed with their Gazelle, Jeans and Munchen collections. The understated, low-profile designs come in contrast to the brand’s future ready Ozweegos, built with chunky foam midsoles, wavy design lines and breathable mesh uppers. New Balance are staying true to their heritage with retro sneakers such as the top-trendin’ 550s. Synthetic and real leather uppers provide durable comfort for court-to-street styling. Featuring padded ankle collars for a plush fit, they’re signed off with the iconic ‘N’ logos at the sidewalls. Not stoppin’ there – you can grab a skater look with Vans or keep it classic in canvas with Converse for an everyday iconic look.

If you’re a keen gym-goer and want the next level of tech, look no further than the Zero CloudTec midsoles that run through On Running’s range. Built for comfort and style, they’re making every stride effortless, pushing you closer to your fitness goals with every step. 

KICKIN’ BACK

Birkestocks is changin’ the game when it comes to Spring/Summer off-duty style. From their more traditional Arizona silhouette that’s perf’ for catching rays, to the clog-like Boston design that’s packed with fur for added heat – all seasons are covered. Pair them with chinos, jeans or joggers and it’s most definitely a vibe! It’s no secret that Crocs are back big time, and with a bigger range of colourways and silhouettes than ever before – stay on trend with the latest from their line-up, such as the Classic Clog sandals. Made with the brand’s signature Croslite fabric, flip back the heel strap for ‘sport mode’, or push it forward for when you’re just slipping them on. 

THE EXCLUSIVES 

The King of Trainers campaign wouldn’t be complete without a lust-worthy range of exclusives, only available to cop at JD. For men, stand out in the Nike Air Force 1 ’07 LV8 sneakers. In a classic White colourway finished with Wolf Grey and Picante Red Swoosh logos, these refreshed classics have perforated detailing for cool comfort, featuring a low-cut padded ankle collar that nods to the brand’s running heritage. Lace up in a throwback look with the 1960R trainers from New Balance.
