Originally created for basketball players, the shoe takes its name from none other than the world’s most famous airplane – the Air Force One of the President of the United States. Wear it during your training or in your free time, with sweatpants or jeans; the Air Force will always fit – guaranteed!

Style Suggestion: A pop of colour in pants, trousers, shorts or a skirt in contrast to the white sneaker will ensure your bold colour blocking statement really pops!

How cool can a sneaker be? The answer is quite clear: just as cool as the disruptor! Because the Disruptor by Fila is clearly an icon when it comes to brilliant sneakers. Its eye-catching exterior with the detailed silhouette and the extra thick sole make it your new must-have! With the Disruptor FILA took a few years back and got the sporty retro look out again. But that does not mean they doesn’t fit into today’s fashion – wear it simple with jeans or sweatpants, in your free time or at the gym. No matter what you decide on – the Disruptor should not be missed.

Style Suggestion: Creating an outfit with a larger sneaker shouldn’t be something to be afraid of! In fact it can actually elevate your outfit to create a bolder fashion statement and help you stand out against the crowd. A feminine dress partnered with these more masculine chunky shoes can balance out the bulkiness of the shoe to create a fun look!

4. Adidas Superstars – $140
