Stylish and comfy? Lets talk about the fashion trainer trend, that is taking the fashion world by storm and surprise. How to wear them in the real world.
What if I told you that there existed a pair of shoes with a price tag that is within all of our reach, that still say ‘fashion’ and ,the best part, guaranteed, will not kill you when you walk? I have a feeling, this is the trend that will just keep giving and it’s not going anywhere just yet. First, let’s just be clear on what we actually mean. Fashion trainers come in a thousand different designs, but they all have similar defining features. They are sporty, not insanely technical, are fairly restrained in colour, can be lace-up or slip-on and have a substantial sole.
Don’t treat them with any less respect than you would a big scary expensive pair of heels. I am a very big fan of high heels, I wear them way too much. However, since I have discovered these pair of, so far, my favourite fashion trainers/ flats, my high heels took back stage. Being a mum, doing school runs every day, I was looking for something more comfortable and stylish looking pair of trainers/flats. I can really work an outfit around them and look like I intended to wear them, rather than you forgot to change out of them. Don’t limit them. They are not a commuting shoe to be changed out of at your desk, nor are they weekend only. If you have the sort of job that allows you to wear grown-up trainers/flats with tailored trousers and a navy ribbed jumper then you really should indulge in this moment of slick comfort.
I have selected some of the fantastic fashion trainers available at the moment. And I have to say, the choice is pretty amazing. My choice- Bow slip on shoes by French Connection. I loved them so much I bought them in Black and White. I can genuinely say, these pair of shoes of the my comfortable and stylish pair I own.
Whether you’re looking for comfortable footwear that fuses sporty styles with feminine detailing or a pared-back pair of trainers that’ll lend a touch of street edge to your smarter separates, it worth looking into French Connection collection of trainers.
