Whether you’re actually out on the court or just having an afternoon out and about, sneakers are the style of shoe you need this summer! They’re comfortable, rain and slip-proof, and so easy to wear.

Beautiful, light and available in a kaleidoscope of colours, Nike has always been the go-to for trainers.

Converse Geometric Chuck Taylor All Star
A favourite Converse quote is: “shoes are boring, wear sneakers”. And how right they are! Converse may have a hint of nostalgia to them, but the thought of bringing them back has never left our minds. The classic Converse sneakers are a serious killer with just a tee and shorts, or even a skirt to match. Give them a colourful geometric spin, or even some platforms, and we’re ready for a comeback!

Available for $499-659 at Converse stores and authorised retailers, find one here

Vans Peacock Authentic Slim
Skating shoes aren’t just for skateboarders anymore. Vans have become easy wardrobe staples that are effortlessly cool. Not only are they comfortable, but they now come in a huge range of cute designs! We love the pretty pastel hues and floral prints – perfect for summer. Take your pick from slip-ons, lace-ups and high-tops to go with your denims or even summer dresses. Pair them with a cute pair of sunnies and you’re good to go!

Reebok has us feeling nostalgic with their latest crossover with Garbstore, a London fashion store.

They may not look that sassy at first, but pair them with a cute dress and you’ve got the classic sporty chic look for a Sunday afternoon out!

Available for $990 via Kapok
