Pumped up kicks

Season after season our feet are delighted to see more  sneakers walk down the runways. Far removed from a traditional sports shoe, modern-day kicks have been elevated to a high-fashion status thanks to refined finishes, intricate design and even embellishment.

Brands like Balenciaga, Gucci, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Chanel have made even the chunkiest trainers desirable, surpassing the skinny sandals and bejewelled heels.

Through this and next month, net-a-porter will be consistently replenishing their bestsellers and as part of The Sneakerset campaign, and introducing new collaborations with the likes of Victoria Beckham and Virgil Abloh.

Now that the ugly sneaker trend has subsided, what will we be buying next? According to insiders, 1970s Runner shoe is making a comeback so keep an eye out for Nike Daybreaks and new lace-ups from Adidas x Khaite capsule, available only on net-a-porter.

 

Below, we have picked out some of our favourite influencers who are just as obsessed with sneakers as we are.
