Trainers are not only a wardrobe essential for gym-goers but are now sitting firmly in fashion followers closets. This summer the only shoe on my lips, is Nike Roshe Run and boy, haven’t Nike done well this time. The unisex trainer bodes well for every season with bright colours, to darker colours perfect for autumn. These shoes are not only easy on the eye, but are top for comfort and I’ve come across the top 5 pairs that will have you dribbling just looking at them. Ranging in price from around £70 these will dent your pocket but if you’re cheeky and are lucky enough to fit into children’s shoes, they come in at a wonderful £40. (Guilty!)
So to begin, the standard black and white Roshe Run. These original trainers may be the most basic but you will be far from basic when wearing them. Team them with your best jeans for a chilled look or even wear them on a night out. That’s what I love about these shoes, you can wear them without feeling like you’ve stepped out of the hood, but rather that you know your business and know how to set fashion. Black is an essential colour for every wardrobe and as these are sold at most high street shops, there is no excuse for you not to own a pair.
Alternatively if you want to add some colour into your outfit, then Nike also do a range of coloured shoes. The bright pink/ coral Roshe Run’s are my personal favourite but colours varying from blue and orange also exist. Brightening up any dull out, they can also be used for the gym but more importantly these shoes would look great at a festival. We all know festival fashion is a biggie and for weekend events like Parklife in Manchester or Everywhere in Nottingham, these have to be on your feet, cutting some shapes.
As the Roshe Run became such a huge sensation within days of being released, Nike got on the bandwagon and released some limited edition pairs which of course the whole world went crazy for. If there are any fashion lovers out there, you will know that pastel and florals are a must have for 2014. So what better way to wear them, then on a trainer TOGETHER. These shoes would look great simply with a pair of denim shorts, with a plain dress or rocking by the poolside.
White is another essential colour for any wardrobe and this unisex pair will definitely have heads turning. Again they are a limited edition pair so grab them fast but the sleek white finish will set off your outfit to a tee. However, note to self don’t walk in muddy fields, spill red wine or actually even leave the house in them. Clean shoes are a must and these would have to be cleaned like your teeth. (Day and night, that is.)
If you like to follow a fashion but lead the crowd then the crotchet Nike Roshe Run’s are perfect for you. They come in a range of colours like black and white but the brighter colours are my favourite. Perfect for the summer, this aqua blue will brighten up a tan and will be great for dancing the nights into the winter.
Well done Nike, yet again you’ve excelled in the shoe department.
