THE FUTURISTIC TRAINERS
Kick-start February in style with these super-modern hi-tops – a practical-yet-cool addition to your boy’s wardrobe, says kidswear editor Maggie Davis
It’s 30 years since cult film Back to the Future was released, and while hoverboards sadly aren’t an everyday mode of transport, certain predictions for 2015 were spot on. These metallic leather hi-top trainers with neon laces are the perfect case in point – and reminiscent of the ones Michael J Fox wore when he stepped into 2015. As well as accruing style points for their sharp good looks, they win marks for practicality too; with elasticated laces and rip-tape fastenings, they’re easy to put on and take off. Crucially, the sturdy rubber sole means they’re perfect for all kinds of adventures – a deal maker for kids everywhere.
