INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
ASOS INSIDERS WEAR CLASSIC TRAINERS
By Eleanor Dunne, 29 November 2018
From Dad sneakers to sporty sock boots, we’ve seen a lot of catchy trainer trends infiltrate our Instagram feeds. And while we enjoy a good talking-point sneaker, there are certain styles that we go back to time after time – we’re talking versatile, failsafe icons that never go out of style. And with Black Friday around the corner, it's the perfect opportunity to stock up on your faves. As always, the ASOS Insiders are giving us serious style inspo – here's how they're wearing their classic kicks.
You’d be hard-pressed to find an ASOS Insider (or ASOS staffer for that matter) who doesn’t own a pair of Converse Chuck Taylors. And if you work in the type of office that allows for sneakers, these monochrome babies are ideal worn with black pants and a check blazer a la ASOS Insider Scarlett. Cuffed hems, encouraged.
Fun fact: the Nike Air Force 1 was first created in 1986 and was named after the American president's mode of transport. It comes in hundreds of colours and textures, but a plain white leather pair are the ultimate go-with-everything style. Just ask ASOS Insider Astrid, who wears them with sweats and sporty white socks (near a beach if poss).
Once reserved for skaters and indie bands, slip-on Vans are now a wardrobe mainstay for everyone. Based in California, the brand's shoes always serve up laid-back West Coast cool, so make like ASOS Insider Elizabeth and wear these slip-ons with pink trackies.
Looking for something that feels both current and classic? Try the Reebok Aztrek. With highlighter-blue accents and a chunky sole, they're tapping into three vibes: the Dad trainer, the neon trend and 90s nostalgia. Plus, you'll be wearing them for seasons to come. What's not to love?
