With the whole world now on a fitness bender, sneakers have once again become everyone’s newest footwear obsession; not that they were ever out of fashion, as designers continually roll out new sneaker designs every season for all your lifestyle needs.

But in today’s context — where going to the supermarket is suddenly exciting and a chance to take your clothes out for a spin — we’re not surprised if sneakers have become your new go-to once again.

Here are some of this season’s best kicks for both him and her, so your footwear game as a couple is never off.

For Him

One of the key trends we’ve noticed in men’s sneakers this season is the rise of the chunky-soled sneaker, as evidenced by Versace‘s pristine white runners that promise a cushier step as you pound the pavement. Logomania also makes a strong return, whether it’s in Burberry‘s casual lace-ups or Fendi‘s eye-catching laser-cut tennis sneakers. And then there are Hermes‘ bright purple trainers, fit for the man who isn’t afraid to make a statement.

For Her

This season’s sneakers offer a variety for your changing style facets. There are bright and bold prints like Gucci‘s adorable cherry motif, or a fierce leopard-spotted sneaker from Roger Vivier. Then, in the other camp, classic kicks get a modern update, such as Christian Louboutin‘s red-trimmed tennis shoes or Alexander McQueen‘s new Tread Slicks that literally give you a raise. Our favourite? The Adidas x Stella McCartney collaboration: colourful and earth-friendly? Yes please!
