Technical trainers are nothing new, but they have only relatively recently snuck their way into fashion’s consciousness. Whereas previously only used for running or hiking, these chunky soled, mixed material shoes have been adopted by famed luxury houses the likes of Prada, Balenciaga and of course Stella McCartney.

If you don’t have a spare £500+ in the pocket to burn though, you won’t struggle to find a similar silhouette on the market, albeit one with not quite the same planet-hugging sensibilities. For a similar looking shoe complete with a built in sock and hard wearing overlapping cage, look no further than the Nike Air Huarache, the original cross runner.
