5 Best Shoes for Summer


Canvas Trainers

Canvas trainers just radiate summer. They are the easiest kicks to slip on when the mercury is rising and even a t-shirt and shorts seems too heavy for the weather. Their breathability wins out against leather sneakers, and apparently apparel isn’t just about what it looks like.

White trainers are particularly summery, but they are not the only option that will look good – blue, orange and shades of green are all viable options. However, the clean base of white trainers increases the number of outfits you can wear. Of course you can wear them with jeans, or with shorts, whether sockless or pulled up tennis socks hipster style. My favorite look however is trainers worn with suits or separates. The key to this look is to make sure you’re trousers finish either on the shoe or just short of, and the tailoring is soft. If you wear a strong shouldered, heavy padded jacket and trainers, it just looks like you’ve borrowed your Dad’s jacket – not cool.
