Best Foot Forward: 26 Great Pairs of Trainers for SS21

Comfort, style and summery vibes: it’s our edit of the best sneakers for summer.

If the year we’ve had has taught us anything, it’s that never again shall we compromise on comfort when it comes to our footwear (we may have learned some other lessons too, but this is up there with the best of them). As restrictions lift and the sun comes out, we may now be persuaded to ditch the slippers in favour of something a little more outdoorsy. But towering heels? Never again.

Hallelujah then for trainers, and specifically those examples that are so breezy and fun that we’ll be slipping them on with everything from shorts to floral frocks throughout summer. Here are twenty-six of the box-fresh beauties that we have our eyes on right now.
