There’s nothing we love more than new shoes, especially when the shoes in question are cute AND comfortable. So that’s why we’re aaalll about the latest footwear trend happening right now, which is about to take your straight back to your childhoood.
Behold, the chunky trainer.
Now, we know that not everyone will be keen on the return of these 90s retro kicks – they’re big, clunky and not too graceful to look at – but they’re actually your new best friend.
Think of them like a pair of heels (but without the heel and loads of comfy cushioning instead) – they’ll give you height, make your legs look longer and smaller, and you won’t be at risk of falling over on a night out. Win!
If you are feeling the vibe of these trainers, grab yourself a pair from some our current favourites.
