Summer Friendly Trainers To Put A Spring In Your Step

15th Jul 2017

I’m still trying to figure out if it’s a blessing or a curse that trainers have become a trend. It’s a blessing in the sense that? well, must I explain? It’s pretty much a given that they’re comfortable, uncomplicated and offer endless options.?What’s not to like? Except now I find they’re all I want to wear. With every outfit. To every occasion. Every. Single. Day.

For a girl who isn’t remotely athletic, I own an awful lot of trainers, and I know I’m?not alone in this. It means a lot of spending, a lot of wardrobe space, and a lot of time spent obsessing over the latest pair of trainers to have hit the shelves. I just can’t stop. It’s an addiction. And thanks to my?obsession, the spring I have in my step is no longer metaphorical, thanks to my?new adidas INIKI and their boost sole.

Fellow trainer addicts, keep scrolling for our edit of the best trainers to put a summer friendly, positive spring in your step. We’re in this together now.
