Is often hard to choose which pair of shoes to wear when you have so many but, when comfort and style is the key, reach for a trainer that works cropped pants and a blazer. Yes, sneakers are no longer designed just for the gym. From New York to Paris via London and Milan, sneakers brilliantly twist beautiful streets silhouettes. Indeed, the bridge between contemporary and athletic lines is merging to appeal to the women. Everyone from model Cara Delevigne to Rihanna, fashion’s favorite pop star, are rocking stylized tennis shoes. Even if gym shoes have been popular for decades with urban fashion sets, high-end fashion designers from across the world are embracing the trend. Giuseppe Zanotti, Christian Louboutin or Nike design their own version of the pumped up kicks. For designers, this means employing an “elevated twist” with materials like suede and leather, embellished with metallic refinements and sported on double soles or hidden wedges.
Even Karl Lagerfeld, who is well-known for his disparagement of “comfort” dressing, has embraced this trend. Every look at the Chanel Spring 2014 Couture show was paired with trainers.
