After their reincarnation earlier in the year, Duffer of St. George have added some new trainers to their collection of preppy sportswear – a hi-top and low-top, available in black or grey.
If, like us, you’re in fewer and fewer situations that call for basic, white trainers, opting for a pair of these low-top sneaks is a safe bet. They’re uncomplicated, but details like the leather pad at the back and the preppy Duffer logo on the side give it a bit of character.
The hi-tops, with a quilted panel on the side, cuffed ankle and patterned laces feel like a (perfectly normal) cross between street-smart trainers and hiking boots. They’re both, but neither, somehow. The metal Duffer tab is also a pretty cool touch.
These are smarter than your typical trainers, but they’re far from fussy, making them easy to adopt into your wardrobe. Wearing them with some dark jeans and a checked shirt is a great way to pull off the Duffer look.
Duffer of St .George Goldings Hi-Top £60, and Wallace Canvas £35, available from JD Sports.
