Sneaker Series: The Spring Sneaker Charts

For work and play, from the office to home, during weekdays, weekends and holidays. Trainers are officially acceptable footwear attire for every occasion, be it a party or a rendez vous with a friend at your local bar. They’ve even been seen on the red carpet, which is where we’d argue many of the below styles belong – the most exclusive designs of the season. Boost your style status with fashion-forward chunky soles, glittering uppers and sporty silhouettes. In no particular order (you decide), we’ve charted the most glamorous sneakers of the season.
