Katy Perry knows a thing or two about style. Check her out on any internet site you care to mention, and you’ll see her wearing something distinctive to match her musical style. And in the exclusive video interview above, she explains why her multi-coloured adidas high-top trainers turn her on.

The FHM cover-star explains that they fit with her unique aesthetic: a dedicated homage to pin-up girls from the 1940s. And Perry elaborates on why adidas trainer-maker Jeremy Scott is her favourite designer of all time. Which is handy, because the two of them can be seen having a ball at one of adidas’ 60th birthday parties, above.
