It can’t be denied that the anticipation for this summer’s fast approaching Olympic games is reaching fever pitch throughout the UK, so in homage to yet another Britain based event this year, we are picking our top five sports-inspired shoes from our favourite UK retailers. As if we need to get any more excited!
At £85 the Latitude Platform Heeled sandals are a great investment piece for summer. The Alexander Wang-inspired pair have sports luxe written all over them, and can easily help to channel that sporty Olympic vibe without losing the luxury of a leg defining heel.
Second place on our lust list is River Island's Black Mesh Peep Toe Wedges, available for a mere £55! Who'd have really thought that a wedge could look so sporty? They're proof that a wedge is way more versatile than just being used on your summer holidays or for pretending that you're a member of the Spice Girls.
In the lead up to the Olympic games, ASOS has added sportswear leader Nike's Blazer Low Pink Trainer £60 to its catalogue. They're great if you're the kind of girl who isn't scared of wearing a true sports shoe, and all the better for those of you who still want to look girly whilst dressed casually.
Vans' lace-up trainers have been a wardrobe staple amongst hipsters for many years, and how exciting that they have updated their classics to incorporate this summer's hot neon trend?! Vans Authentic Neon Tritone trainers are available for £45 and come in a cute mix of neon pink and orange.
ASOS has made it into our favourites list yet again by offering Nike's Fast Love Sky High Wedge trainers for £85. The perfect pair to create a street-inspired look.
