GUIDE TO MEN’S TRAIN­ERS

The Observer Magazine - - FASHION - HE­LEN SEAMONS

The start of a new sea­son calls for new kicks. For au­tumn add a pair of 80s dad train­ers, the kind that look like the emoji, to your shoe reper­toire. Side­step the stream­lined all-white min­i­mal train­ers and look to retro brands like Di­adora, Asics and New Bal­ance to tap into the look seen on the run­way at Ba­len­ci­aga, where more colour­ful (and uglier) styles were worn with board­room suits, py­jama pants and sweat­shirts. No need for an at-work shoe change this sea­son. Your trainer mood board should in­clude Ree­bok’s In­stapump Fury, a mon­ster of a sneaker and Raf Si­mons’s Adi­das Ozweego, a se­ri­ously sturdy shoe. If you aren’t ready to hang up your white pumps just yet, worry not, OAMC and Louis Vuit­ton cov­ered the vogue for chunkier styles in all-white styles.
