This spring, we’re hungry for breezy, warm-weather footwear, the kind that slides on and off our feet without us even needing to bend down. After what has felt like a very long winter, the mercury is (finally) starting to rise, and our toes are screaming for release from the confines of heavy-soled boots. That being said, it’s worth noting that trainers are a perennial footwear style and this report is by no means a suggestion to drop them from your wardrobe. In fact, you’d have to prise them from our cold, dead hands – we’re about as willing to be separated from our sneakers as we are from our feet. But sometimes only open-toed shoes will do. Embrace high-fashion’s love of the retro-athletic footwear trend this summer with classic styles given a modern update for the new season.
