I’m a total sneakerhead, but ironically, also a total anti-sport person. Yes, that can be a thing. But for those of you who are actually into sport ie. people who expect their sneakers ‒ or runners if you will ‒ to do the job on a run or a workout here are three “fashion” sneakers that will not only look good, but also work too.


fashion sneakers you can actually exercise in ADIDAS STELLASPORT

Adidas has launched a new sports range by British designer Stella McCartney ‒ called StellaSport ‒ for a “younger” audience so it’s much more brightly coloured and very fashion-friendly. You can totally wear the entire collection to work (as long as you don’t work as a lawyer) and then run home without changing your shoes. The collection has everything from apparel and footwear (of course) to bags and it’s all made of materials based in performance technology so it will actually work in the gym too. We love the colourways of the sneakers (runners) which are perfectly on trend for SS15 so wear them out and wear them running. Prices range from $69 to $159, and are available from the adidas store at Suntec City and Royal Sporting House at Tanglin.


fashion sneakers you can actually exercise in NIKE ROSHE FLYKNIT

The Nike Roshe Flyknit is an actual “real” runner ‒ the new version is apparently even lighter than the original Flyknit ‒ with a one-piece midsole/outsole and the “knit” which holds your foot in place. What makes this shoe a “fashun” item is its minimal lines and on-trend colours ways, making it the latest streetstyle star shoe for all those fashionistas who are totally over New Balance. And of course, you can run to your heart’s content in it knowing that it’s been designed for performance first and fashion second. The single colourways are super stylish and again very on-trend for SS15; they’re currently available at Nike Shaw and Nike Paragon for $199.


fashion sneakers you can actually exercise in PUMA TX3 CNY Green

The Puma TX-3 is one of the brand’s most iconic pairs of sneakers. It was launched in the early 1980s as lightweight runners or jogging shoes and can still perform the same function despite being updated over the years in various materials and colourways. For 2015’s Year of the Sheep, Puma’s got two special new colourways ‒ Puma red and fern green – and the TX-3s are embellished with gold details including a cute sheep symbol on the tongue and tiny gold ingots to fasten the laces on the leather and mesh uppers. But, these are basically TX-3s, great basic joggers with a touch of bling to add a bit of “fashun”. The Puma  Year of the Sheep sneakers are available from the Puma stores at ION Orchard and VivoCity for $109.
