NOTTINGHAM, England, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Trainers are known for being comfortable and are great for when you're on your feet all day but they are not commonly known for being stylish. That is until now, the rise of the chunky trainers. SportsDirect.com show you how to get the look.
Celebrities such as Rita Ora, Lilly Allen and Dizzie Rascal have all been spotted wearing chunky trainers, especially the Nike Air Max trainers which were primarily known for the visible Air Max cushioning system for comfort all day long. Not only do they boast comfort but they now show style with contrasting colours that follow the trend, like the Nike Air Max Excellerate Plus Running Shoes which sport the neon look thanks to the bright pink and blue stripes and means you can go from the gym to the shops without changing your footwear!
Some brands have opted to combine the chunky vibe with the hi-top trend, like the Puma Ikaz Mid Leather Trainers and Nike Sky Team range, for added street style. Still featuring bright, contrasting stripes the Puma and Nike trainers are perfect teamed with shorts or dresses for a vintage summer look, or for men, they are perfect with skinny jeans.
Others have stayed low and gone for a more skater look. The Dunlop Flash Trainers, for example, still sport the chunky sole but instead have opted for a more low-key colour scheme, making them perfect for people who want to try out the trend without going all out.
If you're keen to follow then here are some key pointers:
The chunkier the better
Think retro with a modern twist
Don't be scared to go bright
Combine the hi-top and chunky trend
