The Rise of the Sneaker Freak: Street Style Trainers

Unless you’ve been living under a fashion-related rock you would have noticed the huge surge in trainers becoming a staple part of street style wear for both girls and guys. You can’t turn a corner in a city centre without seeing a pair of New Balance! It amazes me how some trends really take off and I love watching them spread, it’s crazy! I mean, a year ago would we all have been wearing Adidas Originals Stan Smiths or Nike Air Max Thea or slip on Vans? Probs not, just saying. I’m obsessed with this trend, I’ve always been a bit of a trainer head anyway because I just love the comfort – it’s something that just can’t be beaten. But now I can totally embrace my love of all things sneakers because it’s totally on trend. Bonus.


I love these lime green Adidas Originals X Pharrell Williams Stan Smith trainers for guys, I think they’re awesome. They also come in orange and a white with pale yellow accents which are really cool too. I’m also thinking about getting myself a pair of Adidas Originals Superstars but I need ASOS to start stocking them for women, pretty please! I think they’re a great winter white trainer as they’re a made of easier to clean fabric, I’ve got a pair of white Supergas but they’re definitely more for the summer time, as are white Converse because they’re a pain to clean.

What’s your take on this trend? Are you a lifelong trainer obsessive, a new convert or a hater? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’m ‘discovering’ how fashionable sneakers can be as well…I’m mostly a stiletto kind of gal, but this year something changed in my wardrobe. I haven’t got these in particular, but I would probably shop them for summer…have a nice weekend!
