I'm after some decent white trainers that I can wear with jeans/dresses etc to see me through to boot season!
Converse are a definite no (too uncomfortable). I'm tall, slim and 39 so need to be age appropriate.

You can't go wrong with Adidas superstars, they're a design classic and go well with loads of different looks including dresses

Veja v10... I have three pairs and they go with everything. They are far less chunky
than other trainers

Another vote for the Adidas. I live in mine, and they go with everything. I wanted a pair of Vejas but I found them quite uncomfortable, and quite expensive.

Excellent thanks ladies! I've been looking at veja/Adidas/Nike so I think I need to try some on tomorrow.

I found Veja horribly uncomfortable (same with Converse). My white leather Supergas are a dream!

That's interesting @Oly4 as I find converse uncomfortable too.

Carvela/Kurt Geiger have lots of comfortable and pretty white trainers. I think they are better than sports brands to wear with dresses etc.

The only white trainers that I’ve found really comfortable are Nike Internationalist.

I think veja have changed their leather/design as mine are all super comfy with a soft tongue. I had heard really negative things but mine are the comfiest!

I'm old school and wear plain white lace up plimsolls.

The fact that they're less chunky and plainer than trainers means they go better when paired with a dress/skirt.

Love leather Superga

Nike Airforce are cute and the little bit of height is flattering. I know the kids wear them but there is nothing intrinsically young about them, they're preppy & simple. Golden goose if you're minted.

Lk bennet believe it or not. They do a few types. Pricey but worth it, they are lovely on and super comfy.

I like the Ugg ones, plains white leather

I got them for about £66 from an outlet shop

I've just bought some Supergas for the first time and I absolutely love them, they're so comfortable. I also love the fact they are an Italian brand.

This is really helpful, thanks so much. The ugg ones look lovely!
I'm going to head to bluewater and do some trying on!

Lace up plimsolls as has been said go with anything

stealthbanana Thu 10-Sep-20 13:29:08

Are the leather supergas as flat/unpadded as normal supergas?

Baxdream Thu 10-Sep-20 14:19:37

It's about an inch thick sole? They're comfortable!
