Possibly the biggest success story of any modern-day footwear, the trainer has its roots firmly embedded in the early sports footwear of the early 1900s. From the 1950s onwards the athletic shoe, along with sports clothing, crossed over from the track and into mainstream youth culture, and then fashion. They are now as much a part of women's street fashion as it is for the boys. Long gone are the days of trainers and sneakers being only acceptable footwear for a sports ground or gymnasium; the arrival of the designer trainer has hailed this an everyday, every-occasion staple.
Tokyo street style meets Parisian chic with Kenzo’s collection of women’s trainers, taking couture to the high street, shopping mall, corner shop… or wherever it is you intend to wear them! Made with leather uppers and rubber soles for hard wear and longevity, these sneakers scream style whilst acting functionally, and are smart enough to wear with a range of outfits.
