Cool Trainers Your Friends Don’t Already Have

Cool trainers are part of the LG uniform – but seeing the same pairs cropping up on social media and IRL can be uninspiring. Want something your friends don’t already have? These are the styles to add to your wish list.



Okay, so the Mexico 66s are pretty popular already, but when you compare them to styles like the adidas Sambas, New Balance or Asics, they’re not quite as ubiquitous. There are some colourways you see more often – e.g. the classic white and black or yellow – but we like the silver, gold and sage green embossed styles. 



NIKE P-6000

If you like a dad silhouette, these will be right up your street. Merging a sporty feel with a cool-girl vibe and touches of metallic, the LGs really rate this style.



First spotted on Dua Lipa, the Puma Palermo is still surprisingly under the radar. With a similar structure to Sambas – only a little bit chunkier – they make for a great everyday shoe. For something that’s wearable and versatile, the plain black or black and white colourways are the ones to go for, though they also come in electric blue or pink. 





We love that older styles are making a comeback, and the Nike Cortez is just one example. Sleeker than Sambas, they’re comfortable and have that 70s retro feel. Think bowling shoes but cool.




While Alohas is best known for its sandals, we think its trainers deserve a place in your wardrobe. With a range of metallic and colourful styles on offer, we particularly like the silver and deep red shades.
