From the classics at Loro Piana, to the chunky “dad” sneakers at Roger Vivier, something floral at Valentino, or futuristic, (we’re looking at you Balenciaga) your sneakers should be fabulous enough to speak for themselves.

Consider Trips to the Shops a Breeze Thanks to Nike’s New “Hands-Free” Trainers

For those trips to the shops and walks around the park, there’s a new trainer in town and it’s here to spice things up a bit. Nike’s new GO FlyEase (£ 104.95, available from 15 February) is a “hands-free” trainer that means you no longer have to worry about tying up your shoelaces – rather, just slip on and go.

Aimed at anyone who lives an on-the-go lifestyle, the Go FlyEase also makes life a lot easier for everyone from expectant mothers in the late stages of pregnancy to those with disabilities: “For some, these shoes are simply easier to put on,” says Kathy Gomez, Nike vice president’s of NXT footwear. “But for others, they are the reason it’s possible.” David Wagner, a wheelchair tennis athlete, will be wearing the trainers to compete in the Australian Open later this month.
To create a shoe that genuinely doesn’t need to be pulled on or off (all you have to do is slip your foot in, and exit the shoe by using the opposite foot against the heel) Nike created a bi-stable hinge that “keeps the shoe securely open upon entry and exit and closed when in use”, explains Gomez. The beauty of it is that it works with human intuition, making getting your shoe on and off, using just your feet, a breeze.

Starting as little more than a Nike “internal competition” to find a completely hands-free shoe, the new trainer has been five years in the making, and its birth has uncovered technology that might well be used for high-performance trainers in future: “The initial winning prototype [of the competition] was a modified Nike Roshe [trainer] split down the middle, but it sparked a larger idea that a dedicated team of people has been working to refine ever since. Ultimately, this patent-pending shoe reinvents how you put on and take off your shoes, which is no small feat,” says Gomez.
As you might expect from a Nike trainer, they’re ultra comfortable too. With a “diving board” design, the footbed is cushiony soft and envelopes your foot when you slide into it. “We engineered pattern and materials to maintain a continuous footbed for comfort,” explains Gomez. “Our team were obsessed with comfort and convenience.”

Cardi B Just Launched Her Reebok Collaboration. Here’s Everything You Need To Know

Rapper Cardi B models her new Club C footwear for the Reebok x Cardi collaboration

American rapper Cardi B decided to celebrate her 28th birthday with her loyal fans by taking to Instagram to announce her first ever Reebok x Cardi footwear collection, dedicating the drop to her followers. “As my birthday gift to my loyal fans I’m dropping limited pairs TONIGHT at MIDNIGHT EST on Reebok.com,” revealed the global superstar.
The Reebok x Cardi B footwear collection, which officially launched on November 13, and is available to Middle East fans on Namshi, has been designed to inspire women through self-expression and remaining unapologetically true to oneself – something Cardi B is famous for.

The new collaboration sees the Grammy award-winning artist redesign the iconic Reebok Club C sneaker with two new silhouettes – the Club C Cardi (AED 475) and the Cardi Coated Club C Double (AED 399), both of which are available in women’s and children’s footwear sizing.
The Reebok x Cardi footwear is not for the fainthearted

While Cardi has been proudly modelling the collection across her social platforms, she is more than just a figurehead in the project. In fact, the musician and actor was hugely instrumental in the design process for the footwear, taking cues from some of her most recent iconic fashion moments. As a result the Reebok Club C shoe, which began its life in 1984 as a humble white tennis sneaker, has been revamped and transformed into a bold, show-stopping style statement. Not intended for wallflowers, the redesign by Cardi B comes in shades of black, white, or red, rendered in glossy finishes.
Cardi B in the new Reebok x Cardi campaign

“Through her new collaboration with Reebok, Cardi B will be headlining an all-new campaign titled B Unexplainable, celebrating her personal growth, passion for design, and equality,” explained a Reebok spokesperson. “Through the campaign Reebok and Cardi B aim to explore society’s expectations of women: how they are told to be perfect but humble, strong but caring; and when we have the nerve to get the balance wrong, we’re labeled as ‘too much,’ ‘too extra,’ ‘too dramatic,’ or ‘too vain.’ Instead of trying to do what we’re expected to do, let’s do what we’re entitled to do: move through the world without explanation. Just like Cardi.”
