Trainer advice- what should I buy?

The trainer trend seems to have bypassed me for the past couple of years. Last pair bought were Ash Virgins but I've got my old faithful Converse too. Feel like I need to purchase some new ones though.

Any tips on what I should go for? Nike, New Balance, Adidas? I tend to wear skinnies or cropped jeans so what would you go for?

I wear Stan smiths, Adidas gazelles (bright red), new balance I'm thinking about getting a new pair but not sure what. I'm 39 if that makes a difference.

New balance - I love mine, they're similar to this (although these are out of stock)

I think Nike Roshe look great with cropped/rolled up skinny jeans. I have Stan Smiths and Gazelles too, but find they work less well on me because they are so flat. I am not sure if that's just me though.

Thanks all. I'm 35 so trying to avoid looking like a trying to be a teenager!

I am leaning towards either some new balance or Stan smiths at the moment. I'd love some Golden Goose trainers but they're far too pricey for me!

Adidas flex, light and comfy

I like my Stans with dresses - mine are black.

I wear the hell out of my black Nike Tanjuns with cropped skinnies in summer but when it's spring/autumn I wear cropped straight leg or boyfriend jeans with white Adidas Superstars.
