The New Trainers to Know

Spring/summer 2018 is the season of the trainer, and with 130 options on offer, Kurt Geiger is the destination for your fashion trainer fix. To help you pick your new favourite pair, we’ve rounded up our trainer icons, and everything you need to know about them…

Linford - ‘Statement Tech Trainer’

The last word in sports luxe, Kurt Geiger 'Linford' fuses woven mesh, leather, lurex tweeds, vinyl padding and padded neoprene with an exclusive KGL branded two-part mould outsole. Choose from minimal black or white, deluxe tweed and vinyl or, later in the season, statement colour-drench styles. And don’t forget to check out the 'Linford Sock' trainer too.

Lamar - ‘Sleek Sports Luxe’

Sports luxe-inspired flexible neoprene creates a moveable trainer which perfectly fuses fashion and function. A best-seller since its launch, Carvela 'Lamar' is the ultimate easy-to-wear sneaker – style it with go-to denim or add a sporty edge to a printed midi skirt.

Leif - ‘Hidden Wedge Wonder’

From minimalist white to maximalist metallic, a hidden 35mm foam wedge gives 'Leif' the edge when it comes to 24/7 comfort. Our signature K motif in silver metallic or cool grey glitter amps up the essential white trainer, while gold and metallic pink add a pop of new season colour to off and on-duty looks alike. Look out for the perforated K version, Leif 2, coming soon.

Lustre - ‘On-Trend Embellished Trainer’

Combining on-trend crystal embellishment and sportswear-inspired stripes, the deluxe details on Carvela 'Lustre' elevate the go-to white sneaker for the new season. Choose from monochrome or pastel stripe panels, and wear AM to PM.

Lane - ‘Minimalist Masterpiece’

A minimalist masterpiece you can wear with everything in classic white, colour drench pink or soft navy nubuck, Kurt Geiger 'Lane' will slot seamlessly into your wardrobe. The pared-back aesthetic makes them smart enough for the office, so try with tailored trousers and an on the money blazer.

Limelight - ‘The Crystal Kicks’

Crystal embellishment and a comfortable hidden wedge make Carvela 'Limelight' the ultimate ‘on-duty’ trainer. If you want a sneaker that works for special occasions, this is it. Paired with a beautiful evening dress, comfortable has never looked so chic.

Ludo - ‘Deluxe Lace Up’

Comfort meets luxury in Kurt Geiger 'Ludo' thanks to a super-soft padded sock, plush quilting, and our signature jewelled eagle icon. Choose from classic white with red suede back, metallic silver tipped with blue or the ultra-luxe white and nude nubuck, embroidered with the KGL logo.

Lit - ‘Fashion Runner’

Crafted from in-house designed knitted fabric and with a super-flexible branded sole, Carvela 'Lit' feel light as air on your feet. Naturally, they make the perfect match for relaxed athleisure looks but also create an unexpectedly cool contrast when styled with beautiful dresses, as seen on the street style set.

Legacy - ‘The Polished Trainer’

Off-duty cool meets on-duty elegance in Carvela 'Legacy'. The padded collar and hidden wedge ensure AM to PM comfort, while the metallic leather panels give them a glossy finish. Try with cropped wide leg denim and a classic white shirt, and look out for the white woven version landing later in the season.

Linton - ‘Chic Dad Trainer’

A pumped-up sole, mesh panels and speed laces – Carvela 'Linton' is the chic way to do the ‘dad trainer’ trend that’s going nowhere soon. The multi-coloured version is extra ‘dad-like’, while the all-white pair trimmed with gold is a subtler take on the trend. When it comes to styling, go for wide-legged, side-stripe sporty trousers and a zip up top or juxtapose the dad vibes with a floral dress.

Lucinda - ‘Jewelled Retro Runner’

Plush suede and sparkling crystals juxtapose with the classic runner silhouette and springy EVA sole to create a trainer that’s as luxe as it is comfortable in Carvela 'Lucinda'. Wear with denim and a hoody by day, then team with ankle-grazing skirts and dresses for a fresh evening look.
