Trainers or sneakers spent a long time out in the fashion wilderness. In recent years though, trainers have come out of the gym and begun to make a real statement on our everyday feet. The rise of urban fashion, athleisure, and a look back to the trends of the nineties have made trainers, once again, a fashion must have. But what does that mean for those of us with bigger feet? First, don’t let anyone tell you trainers aren’t for you. Embrace them, the bigger and bolder the better, your larger feet just mean there is more sneaker to love. Secondly, because trainers have a unisex appeal it’s often much easier to find them in bigger sizes - a serious cause for celebration, right?! Here's some of our favourite sporty styles.
Go for Gold
A great pair of Converse are a fashion staple and this metallic gold pair just might be our favourite design yet. Wear them with a pretty summer dress, cut off denims or tailoring for an instantly updated look. Available from Long Tall Sally up to a fist-pumping size 13 UK, grab them now at £47.00.
Hello to High-Tops
High-tops have an amazing retro look that ramps up the style stakes of any outfit. This dreamy pair from Evans uses a denim design and palm tree print to add summer vibes to your spring look. Available up to a generous size 10 UK in a range of width fittings for just £28.00.
Who says trainers should be about practicality? We love these wedge Mia sneakers from After 8 Shoes. Designed in eye-popping silver, these are trainers to be seen in. Sizes run up to 9.5 UK and they check in at £110.00.
Choose Illustrated Feet
Adidas have been pushing the boundaries of active wear for a long time and these playful paint by numbers trainers are the perfect addition to your sneaker collection. Why choose plain old trainers when you can opt for beautiful brights? Pick these up at Sarenza in sizes up to a 9 for £79.99.
