SOS: Simple, sporty, but not flashy wedge trainers

Shoes

It took us a while, but we have finally embraced the trend for concealed wedge trainers. For a long time we didn’t know what to make of them, but after falling in love with our first pair of Nike Dunk Sky Highs, now we know they’re the fastest way to comfortable, cool street cred.

We received an SOS asking to find a pair of wedge trainers, in any colour, preferably black, that weren’t over the top flashy with too many velcro straps and the likes.

Here’s what we came up with…

PS – you’ll notice that most styles come in a variety of colours and patterns, so explore them all
