Leisurewear is a trend that is not going away anytime soon, and now is the perfect time to invest in it. Trainers will take you through the Summer and seamlessly into Autumn.
Leisurewear has skyrocketed over the last few years, and we have the perfect guide to navigate this trend. Trainers, sneakers, runners or whatever the synonym, are no longer relegated to sports activities or going to the gym, they have become a fashionable staple of our wardrobes. Keeping it casual does not mean that you have to compromise on style.
The versatility of sneakers is what has generated their mass popularity. The simple silhouette of well-designed trainers offer effortless styling opportunities; be it a trendy tailored look, athleisure styles or feminine floaty frocks. The perfect transeasonal shoe, Carl Scarpa has a varied collection of trainers, from suede or leather trainers, plimsolls, wedge trainers or chunky platform trainers, perfect for any occasion, day or night.
Sky High Platforms
Here at Carl Scarpa, we embraced platform trainers long before they started to dominate the SS22 runways. Our personal favourites are the Polina Leather Platform Trainers, the classic tennis shoe that has been elevated with a chunky sole. The Roz Leather Platform High Top Trainers are a more playful alternative to the Polina’s timeless silhouette. With a clean and minimalist look, white trainers paired with a bright and patterned midi dress or skirt add a sports-luxe vibe to a traditionally feminine style.
Reach for the Stars
Choose from laceless trainers or slip-on trainers that are perfect for when you’re on the go. Evoke some nineties nostalgia with the star-studded Romy Leather Platform Trainers. This pared-back style with chunky soles and intricate detailing will take you through to the evening, too.
Shimmer and Shine
You don’t have to stick to white trainers, you can still dress up while wearing trainers and experiment with bold colourways. Add a touch of shimmer to your outfits with our selection of silver or gold metallic trainers like the Rimini Leather Platform Trainers. The subtle metallic gives an edge of glamour to your casual style of cropped jeans and t-shirt for grabbing coffee with friends.
To keep your leather and suede trainers box-fresh, we recommend using a protector spray before use, such as the Woly Shoe Protector Spray, and replying regularly depending on use. You can keep your trainers clean using the Perfect Gel Cleaner. Avoid wearing your leather trainers during extreme weather conditions. Keep your shoes away from direct sunlight and stored them a cool and dry space, to ensure multiple seasons with your leisurewear.
