If you’re looking to take your style to the next level, starting from the ground up is the way to go. Rather than going for your trusty Converse, upping your footwear game to something a little more luxury can add a completely new dimension to an outfit.
I’ve picked out 4 luxury pairs of trainers you definitely won’t mind going broke for. We’re not talking Balenciaga prices but expect a little investment if you’re hoping this tip will pay off for you.
Common Projects have got to be the best known, minimalist trainer anywhere. The Achilles Low is their most popular style and has a completely unbroken white finish, only interrupting those clean white lines for the gold stamp on the side. Fun fact, the serial number looking digits on the outside of each pair represents the style, size and colour of your new luxury kicks.
If you’re feeling the minimal vibes but want something a little more street style then the Axel Arigato Clean 90 are the trainers for you. These black suede numbers have a bright white stitch detail which makes them feel similar to a pair of Old Skool Vans or 70’s Converse. I can definitely see these paired with oversized trousers and your favourite skater tee.
3. CQP Portico
Looking for something a little different? It doesn’t get much better than the CQP Portico quarter tops. These laceless numbers work perfectly for both daytime and evening looks and I can see them paired with a slim fitting pair of blue jeans to really nail that 90’s dad look. CQP use real luxury materials with the suede and internal leather both being of the highest quality.
You might know of Grenson for their awesome boots and shoes but they also offer up a range of top end trainers too. The Sneaker 1 is the perfect trainer for levelling up your casual looks or adding some cool to your evening wear. Grenson shoes have a history dating back to 1866 right here in the UK so if heritage is your thing then these kicks definitely have the upper hand here.
