Trainers for the sophisticate

Wearing trainers doesn’t come as naturally to me as a woman with such a smart, sophisticated style. Which is why planning my outfit for a grime event (Eskimo Dance) was challenging, as I was unsure what to wear in the shoe department. Being me, I wore high heeled ankle boots from Zara, which my feet didn’t thank me for. And so, I was inspired to create an edit of elegant and refined non-wedged trainers that will certainly be a more wearable and equally stylish option for a similar event in the future. The price points of these range from high street options to more high end designer styles. I hope this trainer edit inspires those of you who might be in similar situations, or simply need a relaxed and comfy alternative to typically smart female footwear.
