As a self-confessed comfort dresser, I gave in to the pull of trainers a long time ago. Nowadays, you’ll find me sporting my scuffed-up cream Converse Chuck 70s on a near-daily basis. I can happily wear these trusty soles all day long without them pinching my feet, but that’s not the only reason I love them. They also go with the majority of my wardrobe, infusing all my outfits with an ‘I just threw it on’ attitude.
This year, I’m determined to branch out from my well-worn Converse and try out some new trainer styles. And to make the task simpler, five key designs have emerged over the past couple of months that the fashion world has fallen head over heels for. If you keep up with celebrity style or spend your evenings scrolling Instagram, the chances are you’ve already spotted at least one of them. Presuming there are others like me who are seeking box-fresh to see them through 2024 (and beyond), I’ve rounded up these trending treads below.
