Three of the best - spring trainers

Aside from the seasonal lightening of the layers, spring is also known as the time to put the chunky boots into storage and bring out the lightweight trainers. And while the national trainer stereotype of Brits is that they're somewhat obsessed with white trainers, we thought we'd showcase some alternatives that are just as easy to wear.

1 Nike Zoom Match Classic
If you've never been a fan of the big swoosh, these are the Nikes for you. The minimal branding and clean design means you'll easily avoid the walking billboard effect that happens to people who wear overly branded goods. £38, www.crookedtongues.com

2 Converse First String Chuck Taylor
The standard Chuck Taylors are rather uncomfortable and, no matter how classic the design, we don't adhere to the no pain, no gain school of thought when it comes to footwear. Which is why we're fans of these First String Chuck Taylors, which have a padded insole to make it that bit more comfortable. £85, www.oipolloi.com

3 Seavees
Patterned trainers can often leave a bad taste, but these seersucker plimsolls from Seavees are tastefully done. Originally founded in the Sixties, Seavees re-opened in 2006 by new owners, who've been focused on spring ready footwear ever since. £72, www.tresbienshop.net
