The trainer guide: the more fashionable trainer

I love trainers but they can sometimes make my feet feel really clumpy (shout out to my Nike rosches). So to find some trainers that my feet feel and look good then that’s great! Here’s a few shoe options that I <3 and want to share my opinion with you

Black hi-top converse £59.99 – if I’m going to buy a pair of shoes they’ll usually be black. The bottom line is black shoes go with pretty much every outfit choice and if I’m going to splash out on shoes I would rather buy a pair I would wear often – bright expensive trainers I can’t justify buying. That said, if you know you’re going to wear them – go for it! We all have our personal preferences so if you like bright shoes then buy bright shoes! I’m not so garish so I’ll stick to black. My first choice of trainer are black hi-top converse. They’re a great versatile shoe and pretty much go with every outfit. I love converse trainers and I definitely think the black ones are a staple shoe. They last a long time and I really think they are worth £60. The only downside is that you can’t just slip converse on and go – although that’s a pretty minor issue

Green Stan Smith Adidas £65 – I am obsessed with these shoes. They’re just a gorgeous white shoe with green elements (I’m not paticulary a fan of all white shoes) and I love them. I own way to many basic shoes but I think these are just a little different and out of all the shoes on this post, these are my favourites *adidas loving right now*.

Topshop slip on shoes £20 – there are variations of these shoes in a lot of places and they’re great cheaper option to more expensive branded shoes such as Nike or Adidas. Trainers really aren’t cheap, so when you can find a good pair that is on the more affordable side of the market, that’s really good! I would usually stay away from buying trainers from stores like primark though, because while they are really cheap – they don’t really last that long. The trainers are easy to slip on and off and I totally don’t own two pairs…
New balance trainers, from around £45 – New balance trainers in general are great trainers I think. There are lots of slightly different styles to suit different people and even their brighter trainers I really like. They don’t feel or look clumpy and in my opinion are a really put together casual shoe (if that made any sense at all). 

Adidas originals £65 – another Adidas pair and I think these are so nice. Not quite as nice as the Stan Smith pair but sometimes you just need a classic monochrome shoe option (but who am I kidding, most of my shoes are monochrome – do I need any more?) I do love Adidas trainers though, they just seem to go with every outfit and they’re still slightly cheaper than Nikes.
I don’t always love the look of trainers, but there are definitely some I love! They aren’t cheap, so I think you’ve got to really love them before you consider buying a pair… Happy shopping!

    I neeeeeed a pair of stan smiths. Like, really, really badly. I'm also really liking how the new balance lot look really streamlined and not at all cumbersome. Definitely thinking of getting a pair for actual stylish running (bc the only reason I'd be running in stan smiths is towards sales. 😉 ) Great selection here.

    I would say for running Nike is a good bet! I wanted to do a post that encompassed more fashionable trainers but in the future I may do a trainer guide for fitness/running if you'd like? Definitely want to get the Stan Smiths though – they are gorgeous!!
