INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

STAFF STYLE: AW17 TRAINERS

By Nic Hayman, 1 December 2017

Despite the descending mercury, some serious sneaker heat still passes through the doors of ASOS HQ every day (most of it on a beeline to the Looped desks, understandably). We caught up with six guys who are keeping things steezy without resorting to more traditional winter wheels.
