Hold Up: There’s a Controversial New It Trainer in Town, and Celebs Are Already Hooked

Although they originally started as a functional sports shoe, trainers have solidified themselves as a staple in almost every fashion person’s wardrobe. Both comfortable and stylish, trainers have the ability to change the tone of your look in a way no other shoe can, and as someone who practically lives in them all year round, I’m always on the lookout for emerging trends, colours and styles to add to my collection. From Adidas’ cult Sambas to New Balance 530s, sporty trainers have become a key part of all my summer outfits. However, I never expected this particular trainer brand to win me over, let alone celebs and influencers.

Designed as a running shoe, On’s Cloud Mesh Sneakers have an interesting-looking sole made of ventilation holes intended to add cushion and support when you’re pounding the pavements or paths. This, in turn, makes them the perfect pick for those who love adding an elevated chunky trainer to their outfits. It seems many people are after just that, too, as the sneakers have been all over my Instagram feed recently, worn not only as typical sports gear but as a stylish option for casual looks too. Although I wasn’t fully convinced at first, the more I see these polarising sneakers on the fashion scene, I’m slowly becoming convinced that they just might be the playful touch my summer wardrobe needs.
