There are the runners you have for mucking around in, but you need to have a nice pair of trainers you absolutely love to throw on! Here are some pairs we have our eyes on.

1. ASOS Design chunky trainers, €30.42

What we love: Those watercolour pinks and purples will brighten dreary Irish summer days.

2. V-12 Venus White, Veja, €100

What we love: That metallic shade! All Veja trainers are made out of ecological and sustainable materials, the sole for example is made from wild rubber from the Amazonian rain forest, and the jersey lining is made from recycled polyester.

3. adidas Originals Samba Rose trainers in rose gold, ASOS, €103.69

What we love: 100% real leather uppers, classic adidas style, all in a versatile neutral shade with just a pop of gold!

 

4. White croc effect star lace-ups, Next, €45

What we love: We adore a star detail, plus look at that price point! Add to basket.

 

 

5. Contrast sneakers, Zara, €49.95

What we love: Pretty pastel shades set these apart from the shocking colours that dominate sportswear.

6. Converse Pride Chuck Taylor Hi All Star, ASOS, €82.95

What we love: The grey shade will work with anything but that lightning bolt packs a punch.

Mint Velvet Josie star suede trainer, Brown Thomas, €119

What we love: the neutral shade, and gorgeous suede make these trainers an elegant choice.

8. Nike Air Force 1, & Other Stories, €110

What we love: Lavendar runners are for days of exploring rather than sweating in the gym. Stand out from the sea of white trainers this summer in this pastel shade.

9. 997H in Sea Salt with Light Tidepool, New Balance, €90

What we love: The cute colours, the comfiness and the distinctive New Balance shape.
