Of late, trainers have been making a comeback into the world of fashion in a fresh new modern way, which gives us so many more comfortable stylish footwear options.

Trainers 

The latest range of fashion trainers is all about modern futuristic looks with sleek minimal accompanying fashion items. The off duty model look has evolved from denim jeans and a leather jacket to slim-fitting twin sets and chunky trainers. Complete the look with small lensed sunnies and you are off! However, this look is limited to those comfortable enough to pull it off and the rest of us are trying to move these new styled trainers into our lives - that revolve around jeans, dresses and work clothes. Typically used more for fitness and physical activities trainers are designed for ultimate comfort over style.

Sneakers 

In recent years sneakers have been sneaking (get it!) into our lives more and more. Whereas they may have formerly been seen only on the weekends or for very casual occasions, sneakers are now stepping into our work lives, our family occasions and our everyday. Gone are the days when a fresh crisp white sneaker would never be seen on a well-dressed woman. Having been around since the 1800’s with Keds being the first company to bring sneakers into our lives in a fashionable way. Sneakers can be the best style choice for a fun outfit or serious fashion statement.

Sneakers! Perfect for your everyday life, the persistence of the sneakers means that our feet are now happily wrapped in the comfort, style and versatility that is the sneaker. Wear your sneakers to work, on the weekends, to your kids after school activities, your yoga class, walking coffee catch-ups, to a night out with the girls. Literally, anywhere you can think of that you need to be wearing shoes you can grab your sneakers and feel comfortable and stylish. 

  • Style 

Being stylish is one of our number one priorities at Cammino. So when it came to designing a beautiful looking sneaker we took no shortcuts. We wanted to create a shoe that was easy to wear with classic styling so you get the most out of your stylish sneakers. The classic crisp white sneaker with a little flair is what makes the Cammino sneaker a great option. We use different colours and prints to add some flair and feminine edge to our sneakers to make sure we are ticking all the boxes when it comes to style. 

  • Comfort 

We know comfort like the Italians know high-end fashion! We take so much pride in our product development and getting the most comfortable outcome for your feet. Before starting Cammino our designer Katrina noticed herself, her friends and her family spent so much of their time wearing shoes that were stylish but uncomfortable. But she knew it didn’t have to be this way, so she launched Cammino with our foundation product  Ballet Flat Collection. Last year we expanded into sneakers with 6 gorgeous styles and on the design brief - comfort was on top of the list. 

  • Versatility 

Being able to grab a pair of sneakers out of your wardrobe to go with any outfit is such a plus when it comes to women and our busy lives. We want options when it comes to what we wear and the way we dress but wardrobe staples are a must for being able to pull this off. Sneakers are so versatile and can be worn with just about any outfit. Having a solid yet subtle sneaker (maybe with a touch of statement in the form of a colourful trim or lace detail!) is the best way to keep your wardrobe fresh yet minimal. There is no need for excess shoe options when you have your go-to sneakers that are so versatile they go with anything!
