5 VANS OLD-SKOOL

Classic skate shoe from a classic skate-shoe brand. The clean lines of the Old-Skool make a refreshing change from most modern trainers, which are overdesigned and laden with pointless tech gimmicks. And you don’t have to be a skater to get away with wearing these, although it helps. BUY IT

4 NIKE AIR-FORCE 1

The Air-Force 1 was launched back in 1982 and it remains a hugely popular basketball/fashion trainer. Nelly even wrote a (not very good) song about the
shoes, the video for which you can watch here. ‘Give me two purrrs’ indeed. BUY IT

3 ONITSUKA TIGER MEXICO ’66

Thin-soled retro trainer from the fashion wing of running-shoe company Asics. Bruce Lee kicked ass wearing a pair of Tigers in Game of Death, his last film; Quentin Tarantino then kitted out Uma Thurman in a similar pair of yellow-and-black Tigers in Kill Bill. BUY IT

2 PUMA SUEDE PELE BRASIL

Pele liked to kick about in a pair of his own brand trainers, which were first introduced by Puma in 1972 – and why not? The green-yellow-and-blue colour scheme, synonomous with Brazilian football, is timeless. BUY IT

1 ADIDAS SUPERSTAR

We could have chosen any number of Adidas shoes for this Top 5, but in the end there can be only one, and that’s the Superstar, with its three simple stripes, leather upper and iconic shell-toe. The Superstar dates back to 1969, making it the oldest, most retro trainer on this list.
