Sneakers are the without a doubt the ultimate go-to shoe on days you just want to throw something on without overthinking it. And one of the best things about them are the different variations available, from trainers with a pop of colour, or different colourways, to a chunky sole, a high-top or a low-top style, etc, there are many styles to suit whatever your preference might be.
We love how comfortable they can be, but also, its versatility allows you to pair it with any outfit thinkable. T-shirt and jeans? Sure. Jumper and a skirt? Absolutely.
Alexander Mcqueen sneakers
An absolute favourite, that we have spotted on almost everyone are the Alexander McQueen leather exaggerated sole-sneakers. They retail at £360 and come in different colour and material variations. Click here to see more styles.
Adidas Stan Smiths
Another favourite that ticks every box in style & comfort & affordability would be the Adidas Originals Stan Smiths. I actually got these for Christmas when I was 15, and were my first ever pair of trainers. They will always be a sentimental piece in my wardrobe. They were, and still are, incredibly comfortable and can be worn with everything. Shop other variations here
Nike Air Force 1
The Nike Air Force 1 is highly favoured amongst students. I have seen over 10 students at my university in these sneakers. I went up to a student I spotted wearing one of these, and just asked them their opinion in terms of comfort and durability, and she said “they were very comfortable and you can wear them with anything”. I really like the classic design. I do have these on my wishlist for a university staple, but we’ll see, right?
Nike Air Max
The Nike Air Max features Nike’s biggest heel Air unit which they describe as “a soft ride that feels as remarkable as it looks”.
These Veja trainers have been spotted on almost every influencer, non influencers, and even students on university campus. This low-top pair is made from responsibly sourced leather, making them very comfortable. A friend of mine from Instagram has a pair of these which she wears almost everyday to work, and she describes them as very comfortable and versatile, as they go with anything in your closet.

When I came across these, I thought they were to die for. Okay, maybe because they’re Chanel. I spotted someone on the streets of London in these and she looked so fly, I have had them on my wishlist for a while now. I love the hightop style; the notable black Chanel logo and the orange colour-way are so complimentary. These shoes have so much personality, you could wear an all black outfit and this trainers will ultimately elevate any look.
Dior B23 Sneakers
Although more on the pricier side, this Dior Oblique Print sneaker is a classic. It has the notable Dior Oblique print and a neat canvas lining that doesn’t make the logo look like it is really in your face. These sneakers both come in a high-top and low-top style. The high top style is in the men’s shoe range, but it is a unisex shoe in my opinion. I have 2 friends from university that own these and .View different variation here
