Why wearing your trainers outside the gym is the latest trend!

Sports luxe

Forget limiting trainers to training. The latest sneaker trend is wearing your sporty kicks everywhere else aside from the gym. And with everything else other than active wear. Like we needed any more encouragement to buy a new pair of trainers!

Designers such as Valentino, Dior, Chanel, Burberry and Temperley London all recently sent statement sneakers down the runway. And the fashion set followed suit, with bloggers and celebs such as Cara Delevingne rocking flat trainers instead of vertiginous heels in the front row.

Now the trend is taking the street style world by storm. And we here at Sporteluxe HQ couldn’t be happier. All the better for rushing to work or a lunch date with friends after a workout we say! Here, are some of our four awesome trainers that are perfect for the sneakers-outside-the-gym trend!
