Ever adaptable, the humble sneaker is no longer reserved purely for weekend rendezvous. It’s now acceptable to don a pair from casual corporate catch ups to Friday drinks—and everywhere in between. Exuding with a sense of effortless cool, a pair of fashion-forward sneakers is simply a must-have addition for everyone’s wardrobe this winter.

For a modern interpretation of an iconic retro classic, we recommend a classic high backed sneaker style. If you are looking to add a little height and embrace this season’s trending shoe silhouette, a chunky soled sneaker is a perfect choice.
