Paris Fashion Chanel

If you picture back to the Chanel show last year for Spring/Summer 14, you will remember Cara Delevingne hitting Paris haute couture. What was she and the other 64 models wearing at the show?

Trainers, couture trainers as many have called it, Karl Lagerfeld made a radical statement.

No longer an ugly show only used for exercise, sport fashion is here and is as fashionable as it has ever been and possibly will ever be.

According to Karl as well these can even be worn with an evening dress, however I’ll let you decide on the opinion of that you don’t need to stick to his styling too literally.

Even Dior tried their hand at couture sport shoes with sparkles that glistened all through the show.

Trying to get your mits on these trainers can prove tricky especially if you want a decent pair for a fair price, you will have to do some investigating!

Fear not, some of the work has already been done for you here.
