Golden Goose

An exclusive to Mr Porter, these classic tennis shoes with an on-trend chunky sole from Golden Goose are made out of untreated leather, allowing them to age and crease naturally, which is a good thing. Definitely a good thing.

New Balance

The definitive New Balance model, these navy leather 576s re crafted in the brand's Flimby factory (by a small trainer-making elf we imagine) and are finished off with subtle beige and grey detailing, as well as Union Jack stitched onto each tongue.

Filling Pieces

The latest output from Amsterdam-based Filling Pieces represents the brand's low-key luxe approach to trainers. These simple (but very well made, of course) black and white pair in pebble grain leather are a particular favourite.
