Why We're Swapping Heels for Trainers

Why we're Swapping Heels for Trainers

Sports luxe fashion has been dominating the style stakes for a few seasons now. So much so, in fact, that we even wrote a whole lookbook showing you how to style this fantastic trend, which you can see here if you like.

The unsung hero of the sports luxe trend is without a doubt the rise of trainers as fashion items. Previously relatively restricted to sports-wear, trainers have turned into the trendiest and darn comfiest footwear choices for both ladies and gents in recent times - and here at Cloggs we couldn’t be happier about it.

This season, we’re ditching our heels and opting for trainers, every time. You might think we’re a little crazy, but when you see some of the incredible trainers we’ve got available this season - and our little tips on how to style them, we think you’ll be joining us!

Here are our top 5 reasons why we’re swapping heels for trainers this season, and why you should too.

1. Trainers are Comfortable

Whether you’re on a massive shopping trip trying to transition your wardrobe from Spring/Summer to Autumn/Winter, heading to an important work meeting or off for drinks with the girls - it’s important that we keep our feet comfortable. Too often we’ll sacrifice comfort for style and end up hobbling at the end of the day, which quite frankly is never a good look. Trainers will provide all the style your outfit needs, whilst keeping your feet cushioned and kushty - everyone’s a winner.

2. Trainers are Multi-Functional

Here at Cloggs, we are really passionate about killing two birds with one stone. What is more exciting than something that can appropriately serve two purposes at once? We all know us ladies love to multi-task, so why can’t we expect our footwear to do the same? The best part about wearing trainers is that not only are you investing in a key style staple - but you can rock them in the gym, wear them for a walk or even a little jog too. Your trendy trainers can actually benefit your fitness too - who would have thought?

3. Trainers are On Trend

We appreciate the importance of keeping your look trendy, as well as true to your own personal style. Though trends can chop and change each season, it is nice to be wearing a look that could be hot off the catwalk, right? Luckily for us, trainers have been on trend for quite a while now - and we couldn’t be more pleased about it. Wearing any of our top picks will ensure you’re staying fashionable and comfortable at the very same time.

4. Trainers Work with Anything

One of the primary reasons trainers are so on trend, is because they actually work with almost anything. With skinny jeans is a classic look, but you can team them with skirts or dresses for a cool edge to your outfit, with culottes for a totally trendy finish or even with tailored trousers if you want a modern style that stands out from the crowd.
