Gotta Have It

Some surprising women's fashion labels are turning out stylish trainers this season. Check out Muddy's pick of the bunch.

You know trainers have reached critical mass when even the genteel purveyor of ladies’ footwear LK Bennett is doing them. And haven’t they hit the jackpot with this new range? Chic enough to go with dresses and skirts, as well as jeans. Will the brand’s most famous customer, Kate Middleton, be swapping her nude courts for a cheeky pair of these on her public engagements? It can only be a matter of time.

Check out more high street trainers from fashion brands below.

L K Bennett

Our pick of the bunch are the green/leopardprint/red ones, but if you prefer something more understated, the ones with a flash of silver/gold (£150) will hit the spot.
