Never ones to miss a trend, Singapore tastemakers have been capturing their sneaker moments for the past few seasons via Instagram, showing us how to work the ever-versatile and freshest kicks from the new collections. Our favourite high street and high-end brands are constantly reinventing these classic styles to keep us looking cool and comfortable on the way to work, through the day and even for after-hours cocktails! Shop the looks below:
#1 Velda Tan
Sleek and classic, these white Converse low-tops are perfect workwear on those days you need to run around! Jack Purcell x Converse are favoured by Singapore fashion darling Velda Tan of Collate The Label. She wears hers to walk the shop floor and stay grounded.
Canvas low tops, $139 by Jack Purcell x Converse (also available in leather)
#2 Rachel Lim
Co-Founder of Love, Bonito wears her slip-ons to a day of work meetings! She proves that you don’t need to be wearing skyscraper heels and a pencil skirt to be taken seriously. Even if you work in an office with a stricter dress code, tote these in your handbag for some relief en route to work or between each appointment.

#3 Andrea Chong
Perpetual wanderluster Andrea Chong is never without her Bensimon sneakers. From New York to Tokyo you can spot these trusty white tennis shoes on our Singapore girl. If they’re hardy enough for globe trotting, they can definitely withstand the commute, work day and after-hours fun!
Soft canvas and rubber tennis lace-ups, $55 Bensimon
#4 Viola Tan
The other half of Love, Bonito’s design duo, Viola shows us how sneakers can be worn literally anywhere. We love her dreamy take on these New Balance kicks, demonstrating the versatility of this humble shoe. Buy now, wear everywhere!

#5 Nadia Rahmat
We love the kittenish spirit of this Singaporean model a.k.a Skinny Katwoman! She shows us her unique take on sneakers with colour popping and pure black pairs often appearing on her feed. Our favourites are this psychedelic pair from Puma and this burgandy affair for everyday cool.
