If you’ve been lookin’ for the perfect pair to set off your ’fall fits, look no further. These are the styles you’ll need to be lacing up in!
Air Force 1
In a class of its own, there’s not a more recognisable trainer than Nike’s Air Force 1, it’s a sneaker that really needs no introduction. Born in 1982 and designed to be hooped in, the AF1 is now worn for way more than just basketball.
This versatile crep has evolved from a b-ball essential to a style icon that blends perfectly with casual, sports-streetwear. If you’re someone who never got around to coppin’ a pair, now’s the perfect time. They’re built with a hard-wearing leather upper, which keeps you protected from the elements. It’s fact that no one has ever gone wrong with a pair of white on white Air Force 1s (unless someone steps on them), they literally go with anything!
No need to shiver at the thought of putting your Vans in storage now that Summer has ended, the Sk8-Hi can handle the hot Cali weather, as well as get through the incoming winter. Comfy, pretty much indestructible and bonus, they look better the more miles you put into them. Vans can be dressed up or down and are showing no signs of slowing down, making waves for a monumental half-century!
Whether you’re taking your board through the rain-soaked streets or on a dark, damp office commute, Vans give you the protection you need with fabric treatments and durable water-resistant soles. These Autumn-ready creps keep you looking fresh, minus the chill.
Styling tip: As with all high tops, these should always sit underneath your pants, and should be laced to the top.
adidas Originals Continental 80
For those of you who like to keep your crep collection low-key but still fresh AF, the adidas Continental brings ‘80s court vibes. The ‘80s era saw some of the freshest influential adidas releases of all time with endless styling options. Thanks to the Continentals simple yet statement design, it’s a perfect day-to-day sneaker for Autumn that has had a tough but flexible face lift, boasting comfort with Fred terry cotton, versatility and a price tag that won’t leave you needin’ to start a side hustle. Ideal. Keep adi’s sportswear-based roots peaking nicely with a Trefoil tee and comfy joggers to keep your casual look locked down all the way through the Autumn season.
You’re doing Autumn wrong if your trainers aren’t reaching sky-scrapin’ heights with exaggerated soles. Sneakers have been getting bigger and bulkier, continuing to don the streets with chunky “dad fashion” styles. Looking back to the ‘90s (the golden age of sportswear), Fila are known for bringing retro heat keeping you covered and supported.
You WILL feel like you’ll walking on those rain clouds when you rep these giant kicks in supreme comfort. Confidence is key when wearing the chunky Disruptors – you wanna wear the trainer not have it wear you! For a retro combo, team these kicks with a puffa jacket to top off your ‘fit in the unpredictable Autumnal weather.
New Balance 574/997H
Whether you’re looking for the perf technical sneaker, or you’re on the hunt for some chunky steez for Autumn, our collection from New Balance has a silhouette for every rotation. Wrap your feet in heavy-duty textiles and leathers with toe protection and you won’t have to worry about steppin’ to the streets this season. There’s no need to retire your sneaks to the shelves, with GCEVA and Revlite midsoles, you’ll stay gripped on any cold weather terrain.
Those seeking out a more eye-catching aesthetic opt for 997s, you’ll be itching to show them off. And for those of you who prefer to rep a low-key style go for a 574 – immediately noticeable, it’s an easy way to top off your look.
Trainer Tip: For the uninitiated, the general rule when buying New Balance is the higher the number, the more technology it’ll be decked out with, with some exceptions. The unwritten rule? If it looks dope, cop.
