trending trainers

27 February 2017

Wearing trainers during exercise and nothng else hasn't been the norm for a very long time and lately it seems more and more people are opting to wear workout suitable trainers as a fashion statement instead of their intended purpose.

Whilke the average pair of hi-tops or slip ons are eveywhere and worn day-to-day, seeing high tech running trainers about town or at lunch is a little odd. Rather than limiting your perfectly formed exercise shoes to a workout I see why the appeal of wearing a comfy go-to shoe has won over so many people. It makes sense to jump onboard a comfortable trend while it lasts (before the unusually shaped skyscraper heel trend takes off).
