The start of your first term will always be a lasting memory, it is the beginning of your next chapter in life (as cheesy as that may sound). In saying that, you’ll want to create the most epic memories, right? Well, you’ll need the perfect trainers to accompany such adventures. Whether you’re on the hunt for day-to-day wear, or for a night out, we round up the key silhouettes to invest in and how to style these fresh kicks:

adidas Stan Smith

A consistent, and always in demand silhouette, the Stan Smith is an essential for your wardrobe. We offer a variety of colourways which will no doubt, suit your specific taste. Right now we’re opting for all white, reason being that it’s perfect to take you from lecture to SU night out. An all-white trainer pairs perfectly with statement trousers, smock dresses or utility boiler suits.



This has been a busy year for Nike, as many updated models have entered the trainer game. The recently launched Shox Enigma 9000 is an important model to own. Whilst this shoe pays homage to the iconic 90’s shape, the chunky sole and breathable mesh updates this silhouette. The dad trainer trend is no stranger to any of us, and we feel the Shox will be your right match in owning this look. Paired with tailored flares or your favourite cycling shorts, tap into the versatility and on-trend appeal of the trainer. Do not shy away from pairing these shoes with a dress or boiler suit.

Not sure of this trend? Choosing a timeless Air Force 1 always pair well with any activity. Rumour has it, a glitter rendition is soon to launch?



Whether you’re into Chuck 70s, All Stars or a platform, Converse are a firm favourite. You have the vast choice of colourways, materials and detailing. However how will you decide? If you’re looking to add to your current collection, why not look into our latest Split panel Converse? The balance between a core product with contrasting materials. Wanting to make your first purchase? A classic pair of black Chuck 70s will do just the trick. As you might already know choosing slip dresses, silk skirts or a classic smock dress look super cute with Converse. Adding the finishing touch of tied laces around your ankle will give you those extra styling points!



Puma recently took the streets for London Fashion Week, and we loved the looks styled by some of the influencers (Read Here). The Roma Platform is a popular shape of the season, the white platform sole and suede upper screams retro yet stylish- great for making your statement – we like to style these with straight legged trousers and a cute knit. Think part student part fashion savvy. If you’re wishing to go sportier, the Cell Stellar and Rs-9.8 Space are in demand choices.


Our Vans Exclusives are all about contrasting patterns upon classic silhouettes (Slip on, Era). Using animal print and bright graphics allow for these trainers to make a fashionable impact. Whether you’re into print clashing from head to toe or prefer a more minimal approach, choosing a pair of our Vans Exclusives will keep you ahead of the fashion curve.
