Here at ASOS, we love a hybrid. Anything that comes as one item but doubles as another is pretty much sartorial heaven. Why? Because it saves you having to buy two things to perfect a couple of classic looks.

We were delighted, then, to spot these smart trainers. It's not all about ticks, swishes and bright pops of colour when it comes to sporty footwear: sometimes, even trainers need to grow up.

This new breed of comfortable footwear styles go great with tailored trousers or even a slim-fit suit. Yep, you can wear trainers with a suit – just make sure you keep things casual by wearing a quality T-shirt or sweatshirt under the blazer. 

Of course, these ‘sleekers’ are sneakers at heart so can be worn with anything, but the quality craftsmanship and tasteful colourways on these mean they deserve a style upgrade. Pair them with the above (or even premium denim and a tailored bomber jacket) and take them out somewhere nice for a cocktail.
