To help you choose a pair of classic sneakers, here are some of our favourites.

Lena

Slip-on sneakers are minimalist and scream ‘designer’. Jazz up your jeans, shorts or a mini dress with some Frye *coughs*, and you’ll look casual chic and ready for spring. And because it’s a slip-on, you don’t even need to worry about shoelaces coming undone and what not.

Converse

In 1921, Charles “Chuck” Taylor joined a basketball team sponsored by a company, Converse All Stars. A few years later, he gave some suggestions to the manufacturers, which was adopted and they added his name to the brand.

Originally designed for basketball use, Chuck Taylors ended being used in the army training and even for weight lifting. Towards the 70s, Converse came out with multicoloured versions of the shoe, like yellow, blue, red and more. It was this style that took off in the world of fashion, and ever since then it has been a well-respected brand. Their enduringly popular styles are the high-tops and low-tops.
