While there's no such thing as, 'Trainers? You're not coming in!' anymore (hello – they're on the Chanel couture catwalk), there are still times when our comfy sneaks just don't cut it. For the stylish crew at New York Fashion Week, the alternative is pointy boots. What's the newest way to wear your pointies? Silver-toe capped like jewellery entrepreneur Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea, white soled like blogger Vanessa Hong or baggy around the ankle like singer-songwriter Zendaya. Who says trainers have the most swag?!
