A classic running style that you'll never run in, these 997's by New Balance have a cool sort of 'sky at night' aesthetic and are made out of soft, soft suede.
Also, there aren't enough trainers utilising gum soles in our opinion, so it's nice to see NB give them a chance.

Despite sounding a bit like a disease, Spalwart is actually a Swedish brand designing very nice trainers that are light enough for summer, but sturdy enough to last. Also, not everyone has them, which we all secretly (or not) care about.

A collaboration between adidas and Wood Wood, Copenhagen's trendiest label, these really quite wonderful, special edition Gazelles are in honour of the brand's 15th anniversary. They're made out of a rough, long-haired suede with just the right shade of off-white on the tongue, accents and midsole.
