Give your feet a well deserved break from high heels by hopping on the sneaker bandwagon this season. To help you do just that, here are two beautiful collections from Adidas and New Balance.

Adidas Zx 700 contemp sneakers

The new ZX 700 Contemp sneaker, $135, in Electricity, Running white and Red zest

The bold colours, beautiful cut and the iconic three-stripe marks of the Adidas ZX family of sneakers make them a great choice for fashionistas looking to make a statement; the new ZX 700 Contemp shoes are a great case in point. With its reflective inserts and eye popping neon colourway, the ZX 700 Contemp sneaker will definitely get you some attention. 

New Balance Cherry Blossom 999 collection

The New Balance “Cherry Blossom” 999 collection, $169, will be available in two colours, pastel pink and mint green

In contrast, the new “Cherry Blossom” 999 collection from New Balance gives us a soft, girly look with its pastel pink and mint green accents. Whichever one you choose, both collections are a good way to enjoy the best of both worlds – comfort and style.

There’s just one problem. Hitting the streets in these sporty trainers is easy. Incorporating them into office-friendly outfits, on the other hand, not so much. Lucky for you, we’ve figured out three foolproof ways to rock the sneaker craze at work.

1. SUIT UP 

Suit Up Street Style Stars

Put a refreshing twist on the classic matching two-piece look by slipping on trainers like our street style stars. You’ll look smart enough for the office while still keeping a bit of fun in your wardrobe.

Blazers are the key pieces to getting this look right and we love both the Nineteen Eighty white one button oversized jacket and the Nina Nikicio blazer with print details pictured above. Top it all off with a colourful hat, like this Bento bucket hat (above) to give your ensemble that extra oomph.

2. KEEP IT SIMPLE

For a more sophisticated ensemble, go for the Fleamadonna champagne metallic skirt.  

3. PRINTED DRESSES
