White trainers or sneakers, to our friends across the pond are becoming one of my favourite summer go-to heroes.
A growing trend this summer, you can’t move on Instagram without seeing someone, somewhere in a beautifully curated shot wearing white trainers. A good pair of white trainers are a god send. Dressed up with a gorgeous floral print dress of any length, or down with your favourite jeans. In pretty much any combination of summer clothing white trainers can give your an edge, or accentuate an outfit and provide much needed comfort for your feet.
I’ve never been a pretty shoes, or heels kind of girl . It’s just not me or my feet. I’ve spent decades in converse and every summer I buy one pair or new sandals that I’ve trashed by the August bank holiday weekend. So its great to have another option.
For me it’s all about WHAT white trainer you choose, there are white trainers and there are white trainers and let’s face it we all want to avoid cool, the circa 90’s flash, wannabe gangsta look. So here are my top 5 white trainer picks;
