The trainer craze is going nowhere fast, and if you take a close look at the next kick-clad trendy lady who passes you on the street, chances are she’ll be wearing a pair of Sauconys. Officially the cult shoe of summer, we’ve been spotting them on every blogger and fashionista for miles around.
Founded in Pennsylvania in 1898 – no, that’s not a misprint, 116 years ago – Saucony were responsible for making the first moon boot for NASA astronauts in the ’60s and were standard shoe-uniform in the ’70s. Fast-foward to 2014 and they’re having a major revival with stylistas rocking them with everything from full skirts to printed shorts.
Available in a rainbow array of colours, these high-performance running shoes are easy to slot into your summer wardrobe. Try them with a simple, fluid shirt dress, or with your denim cut-offs and breton top at the weekend. Feeling brave? The track vibe will offset a prim, full midi skirt nicely.
You can shop them now at Asos and Schuh, so all that’s left to do is pick your colour…
