UK plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel shares her favourite athletic and "athleisure" style DKNY trainers in this wish list post in collaboration with Daniel Footwear.
It took a quarter of a century for me to learn to appreciate trainers! That miiiiight have to do with getting a job in retail, but who can tell? I've finally learned to love sneakers, and that's that! I've been a bit more athletic recently and have been hitting the gym a couple times each week. Naturally, I've been daydreaming about upgrading my Primark trainers to a more durable, more fashionable pair. Whether hitting the gym or hitting the town, these DKNY trainers have got me drooling!
The trainers that I'm featuring are from Daniel Footwear. Not only do they have a wide selection of designer trainers, but they also offer bags, heels, and more! Plus they have LOADS of designers to choose from like Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and many more big names in the fashion world. You can find these designers online or in Daniel Footwear stores across the UK.
I can't decide if the Tilly trainers have more of a retro or a futuristic vibe, but either way I love them! Plus fashion always repeats itself, so it's probably both! I love the contrasting textures, and since I often go to the gym in the morning, I'm very into the convenient velcro straps! I would wear these with black leggings and an oversized stripe top for a weight training session.
These white and grey Jill sneakers have the monochromatic vibe which (duh) I'm all about. They have a super subtle glitter element, which adds a bit of sparkle to your workout gear. I would style these with black shorts and a white graphic tee while rocking the cardio machines.
The Betty trainers are definitely more for an "athleisure" look rather than for a gym sesh. I love the patent toe detail is pretty, but also practical in case the toes get scuffed. The quilted sides are just gorgeous. I would style these with with blue boyfriend jeans and a casual tee for a long shift on the shop floor at work.
Okay, these Cathy wedge sneakers are everything! I would absolutely rock my best Kanye West attitude in these bad boys. Obviously, I'd style these monochromatically. I would have to pick black distressed skinny jeans, a white button up top, and a black oversized coat. Huge black shades are also a must.
