Best of the New Seasons City Chic Sneakers to Walk you Anywhere

Does it surprise you to know that you can spend upwards of £1000 on your new pair of sneakers?  Just about every designer has cottoned on to the fact that we're looking for a combination of comfort and style, and that we're definitely not going to be walking around town in 5" heels any more.  Well some do I'm told, but walk down any street in London or Paris (or New York, let alone LA) and you'll find the majority wearing sneakers, designer or otherwise.

So rather than invest hundreds of pounds in a new pair of heels, it makes sense to buy something you're going to want to put on your feet every day, to walk for miles in, and come home without blisters.  And designers have seriously gone to town on colours and decoration.


The trends right now are for metallics, animal prints, florals, stars and stripes, and with spring - hopefully - just round the corner what better time to add to your collection?

From designer brands such as Gucci and Christian Louboutin to modern chic from Golden Goose and Tods to comfort special brands such as Geox there's everything to choose from and every price range.


My advice if you're going to be walking a long way - your next Paris city break for example, is to choose leather as canvas and other fabrics are - yes less expensive - but more likely to rub.

Don't wait too long if you fall in love with a pair, some sizes and styles are already selling out.

The best choice of brands and styles online are to be found at John Lewis, and Selfridges and with everything on offer from Gucci to Dune these are a great place to start.
