Having always been a bit of a tomboy at heart, I have owned a lot of trainers in my time.

Nike and Adidas have long been my favourite brands, (I was always partial to a pair of what we used to call “Shell Toes” aka Superstars), and I love the classic Stan Smiths.

Nike Air Force Ones and Airmax have also featured heavily in my collection over the years.

Unfortunately l have always found that Women’s trainers are usually a very poor second to their male counterparts. Girly pink colourways, and limited designs. So having small feet, I have always gone for boys trainers instead!

But there is now so much choice, its hard to know where to start. Nike and Adidas are still bringing out innovative, fresh designs and redesigning their classics for a new generation.

But names such as Stella McCartney and J Crew are collaborating with top brands to produce some great designs.

Here are some of my favourites…
