Last month we were delighted to be featured on the Daily Mail website, in an article discussing how Millennials are choosing to ditch conventional bridal heels and are instead reaching for a comfortable pair of wedding trainers following the wedding of Serena Williams to Alexis Ohanian last November – for which Serena donned a pair of bespoke Nikes.
You will have been envisioning how your wedding day will pan out in the months of planning, you might even have been dreaming of it for years while you were waiting for that magical proposal. It is one of the biggest days of your life and likely to be the only day of your life that you will spend such a huge sum of money on. The very last thing you want to be doing is fussing with uncomfortable footwear or grimacing in your photographs because your shoes are hurting. Enter the wedding trainers… Popular for so many reasons; comfort, style and the fact that you can wear them again after the big day with your jeans, it’s easy to see why the trend of wearing bride trainers under your wedding dress is here to stay.
Opting for a glamorous gown with a sassy side split? Team it with a pair of converse, personalised with your new surname and embellished with Swarovski crystals across the toes. A tea-length gown is a fabulous way to show off that new pair of Nikes, in true rock and roll style. Or if you are going to make your entrance in a beautiful ball gown, look to Lily Allen’s style for trainer inspiration – think satin ribbon laces tied in big bows.
This fashion forward trend is not just for brides either, there are options for your groom to personalise his footwear for the big day too. Because couples that train-er together, stay together. So, whether you opt to wear cute converse or you follow Serena’s lead with a personalised pair of Nikes (matching with your groom of course) put your best foot forwards in a pretty pair of pumps.
