5 Pairs Of Trainers Worthy Of Any Christmas Party

We know about the legitimate health hazards associated with wearing high shoes, which is why we’re ditching the heels this year and opting instead for a chic and sophisticated pair of trainers that will help us go from breakfast to supper*. Here are five elegant and modern pairs of trainers to try.

These blush Nike Air Plus Max, €160 at Nike.com

Nike has invested heavily in their women’s lifestyle designs to better suit women-on-the-fly. They understand that form and functionality are equally important and that really shows with their chic and modern approach to everyday trainers. The TN silhouette is really small and neat, making them an ideal candidate to pair with a midi-skirt or statement trousers and a smart blazer. The satin-effect finish gives added luxury, too.

Set the standard in these bejewelled high tops, €125 at Uterque.com

These deep green high tops from Uterque, below, combine the elegance of the popular sock-style silhouette with the functionality of a trainer. The embellished statement motif gives these trainers an additional layer of luxury, making them a really ideal choice if you’re looking for style and comfort.

Go high with these flatform trainers, €445 at Alexander McQueen

If height is your heroin then try these flatform trainers from Alexander McQueen, below. They’re composed of white, smooth calf leather so they’ll age really well, and the chunky heel and rounded toe keep the shoe looking neat. The gold vintage metallic detailing is the perfect subtle touch of decadence if you like to keep things low-key.

Go neutral in these Nike Sportswear Air Vapormax Flynit, €230 at €230 at NakedCPH.com

A good pair of trainers is a modern necessity for busy women, and every woman needs a pair in her arsenal to keep the pace going all day long. the Vapormax Flynit is a relatively new addition to Nike’s growing repertoire and despite its flat appearance it provides plenty of support. Again, we see the sock-style trend reappearing again and the neutral and chrome colour-way will complement almost any outfit and colour combination.

These party-ready glitter trainers from Gucci, €550 at netaporter.com

Nothing says Christmas quite like gold glitter, and if you’re looking for a show-stopper then look no further. Step into the party in style with these fun low-silhouette trainers from Gucci, below. You’re guaranteed to keep the party going in these ostentatious glitterati trainers.
