Three cool kicks. Three style icons sporting them. Your summer style sorted.
Call them vintage-inspired, heritage or old school, the trainers du jour are a throwback to the days of the past, and the good news is they're experiencing a rebirth of cool.
AS SEEN ON: David Beckham. Dapper dad of four and low-key style icon. Is there anything Mr Beckham can't make look good? No. The answer is always a resounding no.
STAY COOL IN: A printed T-shirt and stretch cotton-twill shorts in beige - because there's more to life than denim. And while you're at it, brush off your Converse All Stars.
White trainers are a warm-weather must-have. They'll work with anything in your off-duty wardrobe, from neutrals to loud prints, so long as you keep them squeaky clean.
AS SEEN ON: The queen of effortless dressing, Olivia Palermo, knows ice-white trainers look good with, well, with pretty much everything.
STAY COOL IN: A lightweight roll-neck, cropped suit trousers and a printed jacket for a rainy summer day. Then, pair them with a cotton-poplin shirt, distressed off-white denim and a minimalist white leather trainer when a casual dinner is on the cards.
Gum soles, sock-silhouettes, innovative accents - the technical trainer is as functional as it is fashion-forward. Rock them for your work out, rock them for your night out - the choice is yours.
AS SEEN ON: James Harden. Arguably 2018's best-dressed NBA All-Star. Harden's off-court style is as cool and coiffed as his beard. Just take notes.
STAY COOL IN: A slub linen T-shirt or tank top - both will look good alone or under a bomber jacket - plus distressed denim and slip-on trainers with a breathable knit upper, the perfect pairing for scorching days.
