As autumn approaches, the time to update your sneaker collection does too, and it can be a pretty big task. A new season means new styles and trends, and it can be difficult to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of fashionable footwear, but that's where we come in. Whether it's chunky platforms, colourful collaborations, or statement sneakers, we have the definitive list of this year's most stylish trends so that you don't miss out.
One trend in particular that doesn't seem to be going anywhere fast is designer collaborations, mostly thanks to the New Balance and Casablanca partnerships and Nike Sacai silhouettes that we're loving right now, but that's not all. We're also seeing comebacks from tried-and-tested classics like Nike Air Force 1s and Adidas Stan Smiths (basically the unsung heroes of the British summer), and as expected, the ugly-cool trainer trend is still very much alive and kicking.
Read on to find out more about the biggest sneaker trends for this year, and to shop our favourite selections.
