We start with an all-American icon, the Chuck Taylor All Star. Introduced in 1917, the Chuck is arguably the world's most recognised and copied trainer. This season the likes of Common Projects, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen have all produced refined versions of this classic style, making use of the finest leathers to pay homage to a true American classic.  shop CHUCK TAYLORS              LACING Unique lace patterns have been a feature of this season's trainers from many of our high end fashion brands. Ever innovative, Margiela have created high-tops where the laces pass under the surface of the trainer's upper, before looping back around the ankle. Meanwhile, Raf Simons has opted for a spider's web of black laces that echo his dark punk roots.  shop LACING                  OUTDOOR Although most trainers are designed for the running track, some styles have broken out and gone wild. Incorporating outdoor elements such as grippy soles, padded ankle supports, and d-ring lace fastenings, these styles have the outdoor credentials to tackle rough terrain but look equally at home on the far less challenging pavement of the highstreet.  shop OUTDOOR                  TECHNICAL Trainers have always been about maximising performance and even styles that we now consider vintage were once at the cutting edge of trainer technology. Today shock absorbing soles, advanced fabrics, and even sole units that mimic the experience of running barefoot are all commonplace, as these thoroughbred styles help you run faster and jump higher.  shop TECHNICAL                  RE-ISSUES Nostalgia is a powerful emotion, especially in the world of trainers, where certain styles can summon up a specific time and place. The Nike Air Flight, for example, screams of 1980s pomp and extravagance, while the Cortez is a style that could only have come from the 1970s. Today, re-issues breathe life into these little pieces of vulcanised history.  shop RE-ISSUES            TO ENSURE THAT OUR MESSAGES GET TO YOU AND DO NOT GO TO YOUR JUNK FOLDER PLEASE ADD ENQUIRIES@OKI-NI.COM TO YOUR ADDRESS BOOK.
