Trainer mania: Liberty of London X NikeID and Comme des Garçons PLAY X Converse Pro Leather

Oh boy, I bet all those po-faced sportswear companies are sooooo glad they finally embraced the fashionisation of sportswear. Since they begrudgingly accepted that trainers and windcheaters have a place beyond the running track – ideally in the wildest and wackiest colour combos – there’s been no stopping them.

Nike has been particularly clever with its collabs and its old school classics realised in Liberty of London’s iconic print are eagerly anticipated and collected. This month it has done thing differently, launching the first Liberty of London x NIKEiD service. You can customise a number of classic Nikes with your own permutations of colours and Liberty print – the red hi-tops are my favourites. Shop Liberty of London X NikeID here

Meanwhile, I love the latest collab between Converse and Comme Des Garcons. June 1st sees the release of four new styles of the Converse Pro Leather basketball shoe smothered with Commes Des Garcons PLAY’s trademark heart motif. All styles will be available at Dover Street Market, 17-18 Dover Street, W1 (020 7518 0680) and (low tops are £95, hi-tops are £100). Any favourites?

    It is incredibly clever, I spot a pair of nike air max within a 1 meter radius, at all times when I’m out these days-suddenly EVERYONE is wearing trainers, even the girls that were once formally obsessed with heels and would sneer at the thought of going for something comfy. I am in love with the navy blue liberty print

  2. I already have two pairs of Liberty/Nike trainers – though I might design my own this year!
