Comfort was the key to 2020 fashion and loose-fitting loungewear and sports gear came marching back in trend. So does that mean you all have to ditch the suave suits and death-trap heels for chunky sports branded trainers? Is this the era where high-end fashion dies? Absolutely not. Lucky for some, designer brands have caught on and have come up with their own creations. Now you can lounge around or hit the supermarkets in luxurious comfort.

Internal perforations provide ventilation – ideal for sports activities and hot climates.
Trainers for Women

In the 2021 season, trainers’ fashion is still associated with a retro vibe. Prada high-top sneakers, as well as Alexander McQueen lace-up platforms and Gucci cherry-embellished tennis shoes, are part of the comfortable pandemic times style. Also, ’90s-style sneakers are still in vogue, and you don’t even need to invest in a designer look for them.
If sustainability is at the top of your agenda (as it should be), many cool brands include vegan trainer models such as Veja, Waes, and Yatay. So with this wide range of designer trainers, you will probably find your beloved pair and spend the year in luxury comfort.
