This pair has quite a few interesting details. Its lattice weave midsole is made with 3D printing that incorporates an added fourth element that gives it its “4D” name; that is, athlete and consumer data to ensure that each stride is optimised and energy loss is minimised. This pair is perfect for the gym or a hike.
Weekends were made for fun and these Miu Miu bejewelled sneakers, that are a perfect demonstration of why dress down weekends do not mean you have to go drab. This pair will make a shirt dress ensemble all the more lively.
Spice Girls made a comeback (sans Posh Spice) so it’s time for us to break out a ’90s favourite: platform sneakers. Complete with the colours of the Union Jack, this pair is so cute it hurts.
Versace should be on your list of go-to brands if you’re obsessed with colour. These summery floral patterned sneakers will add a pop of colour to a simple T-shirt and jeans combo.

Off-White is a staple label if you’re looking to up your street wear cred. This neutral chunky pair is accented with blue arrow patches and red tabs, so those who love a simple vibe and those who prefer statement elements will find something to love in this pair.
Bored of the usual sneaker silhouettes? Head to Maison Margiela and you’ll find unique and avant-garde designs, such as this pair of chunky orange/grey trainers complete with backpack buckles. You say strange? We say genius.
You might pass this Onitsuka Tiger pair off as another patterned sneaker design. But behind the colourful detail lies a rich history of Japanese craftsmanship called sakiori by the Sansa Sakiori Koubo of Saccora Japan. The sakiori woven technique applied here uses old synthetic leather strips that are sewed together to create a new material using a traditional loom. Great for those who want to support environmentally-conscious products or heritage techniques passed down through generations, or if you simply want something vibrant to inject some colour into your shoe collection.
For those who live by the “less is more” ethos, this pair of sleek, blush pink sneakers from Clarks is just for you. Dress with a lightweight, ruffled cotton dress for an effortless date look or with your sports bra and leggings for a weekend hike.
With a rainbow colourway, this New Balance pair was created specifically to celebrate Pride month. We love that the neutral black colour is its base shade, as it makes the pair wearable with your everyday outfits without being too OTT.
Raise your hand if you went “oooh” the moment you caught sight of this pair. Intricately designed with floral motifs, neon coral elements and a statement chunky sole, this sneaker was born as a result of a collaboration between Puma and New York fine artist Sue Tsai. Comfortable yes, but also, a great addition to a sneakerhead’s collection, especially if you’re into art.
Yellows and pastels are a favourite of spring and summer but if the cheery shade scares you, start small with something that has just a dash of colour, such as with this pair of Nike Air Force’s. This pair is also great for a vacation when worn with a loose-fitted linen dress.
Like a great pair of jeans, a pair of white sneakers is a wardrobe staple that everyone needs. We prefer ours to come with just a touch of colour but with minimal risk, like this Veja pair. The red V logo adds just enough colour to jazz up the pair without distracting from its minimalist aesthetic.
