Casual Feet

7th April 2014 | Posted in Womens & Footwear by H. Simpson
From a generally sporty background, Converse, Vans and Lacoste now hold a status firmly in the mainstream. Popularity for this casual style of trainer has soared so dramatically, the footwear are now a fashion trend and somewhat S/S essential. Aside from the originals, are now stocking new season colours and washes...
Ever popular footwear brand Converse has built up the iconic status it holds today by keeping within its original form, yet maintaining the happiness of their audience with updated looks. Much of this credit can be given to Converse salesman turned basketball coach Chuck Taylor who formed the brand's mass popularity within the sportsworld, changing the style and look. The versatility of the shoe is what makes the brand so appealing. Converse can be matched with practically any outfit choice, from jeans to shorts to even dresses. This season, Converse have released new pops of colour and prints for something a little different.
Black and Optical White are two original colours that remain as popular as ever today, so the release of new season colours is exciting and fresh. Below, the 'Old Silver' colour has been paired with a Religion bodycon dress for a great mix of feminine and masculine as well as complimenting each other with a similar range of shades, whereas the hi tops offer a burst of colour to the Superdry 50's style dress. Both show that the versatility of Converse can offer a range of looks and styles. converse ct all star seasonal ox converse all star seasonal hi

With prints being all the rage this season, Converse have released a range of tie dye prints. Wear with something plain and with one block of colour so that the print does all the talking.

For something a little lighter, Converse have released the Chuck Taylor Dainty Ballerina. An easy slip on canvas and with no lace fasteners, this pair have been sprinkled with a feminine touch for something less chunky. converse chuck taylor dainty ballerina

For something a little 80's inspired, take a look at Vans's latest hi top. The chunkiness and simplicity of the trainer give it a retro feel. These would look great worn with some acid wash jeans and a colour contrasting neon top. A pair of crisp white trainers are the ultimate look this summer for an effortless, 'just thrown on' look. Gone are the days when trainers were simply for the male species and simply worn for sports, trainers have now become a fashionable piece of footwear and have the added benefit of them being comfortable and long lasting. Hurray to the trainer trend! vans sk8 hi true white trainer
