Top 10 Spring/Summer 2019 Men's Trainers

As the weather slowly creeps from sub-zero to tolerable and spring rears its head on the
not so distant horizon, you may find yourself allowing the pleasures of soft suede, plush
nubuck and, dare we say it, permeable mesh to fill your mind.
Whilst we feel in no way confident putting our money on a week without rain and don’t
suggest donning your box-fresh-best just yet, we do think it pays to be prepared. That’s
why we’ve put our minds together to create a list of some of the very best in latest Spring/Summer 2019 footwear arrivals that, in our opinion, will be this year’s go-to favourites among
beaches, parks and beer gardens alike.
From reimagined classics and fresh new silhouettes to swooshes and three stripes, we’re
sure there’s something to scratch everyone’s post-winter trainer itch and make the
inevitable breakup with your trusty cold weather boots, not so hard on the feet.

adidas Broomfield

Admirers of classically terrace styled trainers rejoice, the Broomfield is here. Keeping it
casual, the trainers stick to their guns with a low-profile, three stripe appearance
complete with all the trimmings. Lush suede, a lightweight rubber sole and t toe overlay
design complete with metallic gold branding to the lateral side. Very nice indeed.

 

adidas SC Premiere

Having been spotted on the feet of celebrities such as David Beckham and Jonah Hill, it
seems adidas’ newest model has already made quite the name for itself. Reimagining
classic tennis shoes for the streets of today, the SC Premiere boasts a super
contemporary, stripped back, multi-panelled design that adds depth and intrigue
without sacrificing on laidback appeal.
Crafted from premium leather with nubuck overlays atop a rubber midsole that hits
bang on the sweet spot of chunky but not too chunky, the trainer is an easy fit into
almost any wardrobe. So, whether you stick with trousers, opt for jeans or brave the
shorts the SC Premier will be on hand to support your decision, even if slightly
questionable in the current climate.

adidas LXCON

Appearing simultaneously vintage and futuristic at the same time, the LXCON is
another of adidas’ newer models freshly dreamt up for 2019. Inspired by a pair of
heritage runners from the ‘90s, the LXCON offers a lightweight EVA midsole,
adiPRENE heel cushioning and a padded knit mesh upper that hugs the foot whilst
maximising air flow.
Dressed in a muted beige that provides the perfect base layer to accentuate the pops of
bold colouring, the trainer features a translucent tube detail that not only adds structure
to the shape but brings some science fiction, see-it-to-believe-it charm. The word
timeless gets thrown around quite a bit but we think this one hits the nail on the head.

New Balance M991

Perhaps one of the true purveyors of the ‘dad style’ the New Balance M991 is as
effortlessly cool as they come. Putting to work a selection of suede panelling, that takes
on this season’s burnt orange colourway beautifully, the shoe gives way to a plethora of
underlaid mesh that gracefully catches the soft summer’s breeze.
Combine that with the motion flow midsole, visible Abzorb foam and gold reflective
details and, dad or not, you must admit they tick most, if not all the boxes when it comes
to your next new trainer purchase.

Nike Tailwind

If you’re looking for a timeless vintage runner then look no further than this latest
iteration of the Nike Tailwind. Staying nigh on identical to the 1978 original introduced
for the Honolulu Marathon, the trainer strikes the perfect balance between performance
enhancing qualities and modern minimal styling.
Featuring a multi textile upper that’s both comfortable and breathable, the trainer
comes dressed in hues of white giving it as much summertime appeal as a mid-evening
dip in the pool. Sat atop a lightweight air unit and waffle traction outsole, the Tailwind
boasts serious built-in support and grip, ideal for any and all of your urban escapades.

Comme x Spalwart Pitch

No stranger to a good old-fashioned collaboration, Comme des Garçons join forces with
artisanal footwear company Spalwart for a lesson in combining the worlds of athleticism
and luxury fashion. Taking the form of the tried and tested pitch sneaker, the pair opt to
keep details to a minimum using a mixture of mesh and suede uppers as well as a subtly
co-branded tongue and supportive leather footbed to create a modest silhouette that’s
bursting at the seams with quality craftsmanship.

Nike VaporMax Plus

Pairing a timeless silhouette with revolutionary footwear technology, the VaporMax Plus
is a true testament to the design team at Nike, showcasing their ability to take the
familiar and transform it into something that feels completely different. Displaying
iconic Tuned 1 multi-textile uppers including a caged off lacing design, embroidered
swoosh and heel pull tab, the sneaker is finished with a translucent VaporMax air unit
below for satisfaction guaranteed with every step.

Y-3 Raito Racer

When putting together a list of some of the best in Spring/Summer footwear it’s hard to
ignore the newest addition to the Y-3 lineup. Known for their often avant-garde
approach to footwear, the dynamic duo consisting of head designer Yohji Yamamoto
and sportswear giant adidas have once again knocked it out of the instant classic park.
Arguably made with summer in mind, the Raito Racer unapologetically shows off an
impressive CV consisting of lightweight mesh primeknit sock uppers, boost technology
midsole and some intricate topstitch detailing. For those not in the know, we’re talking
exceptional breathability, unparalleled lightweight comfort and some very impressive
looks.

DSquared2 Sneakers

Embedded with luxury, DSquared2 bring their usual opulent styling to a classic trainer
profile. With premium nubuck, calf and rubberised leather uppers, the sneakers utilise
multi-coloured overlays, perforated detailing and branding to the tongue and lace
dubrae for an abundance of visual appeal. An undeniable and well-deserved treat for the
feet after a long cold winter.

adidas Samba RM

First introduced in the ‘50s as an indoor training shoe, the Samba is as battle-hardened
as they come, earning its stripes throughout over 60 years in the footwear game. Keeping
things largely untouched on the top, apart from some subtle, modern streamlining to
the shape, this iteration of the Samba features boost technology all wrapped up in a
vintage-inspired gum midsole.
