1 – superga.co.uk
Italian brand Superga was cladding men’s feet in clean trainer designs long before minimalism was a bona fide menswear movement. Named after the Basilica di Superga near the factory where it was founded in 1911, the firm is best known for its 2750 model, which is identifiable by its cotton canvas uppers and vulcanised rubber soles.
Of course, the eternal appeal of these trainers lies in their ability to filter out the fuss and focus on the core requirements that men need from a trusty pair of kicks: chiefly quality, comfort, and timeless visuals.

If minimalism could be distilled into a single one-stop shop, Cos would undoubtedly be it. While the Swedish retailer is happy to dabble with the odd experimental shape in its clothing range, the trainers on offer have their feet firmly planted in simpler design territory.
That’s not to say Cos kicks are boring, though. Quite the opposite. Clean lines, high-quality materials and simple design flourishes come together in a display of impeccable taste, all packaged in neat lace-up and slip-on styles.
So in conclusion whatever your style you can find some high quality footwear at reasonable prices to kick-start your spring collection.
