Adidas SuperstarAs the second largest sportswear manufacturer in the world, it's natural that a pair of Adidas trainers made their way onto this list. The Adidas Superstar was released in 1969 and, like the majority of Adidas products, boasts the trademark three parallel lines. In the 1970s, this trainer became the official shoe of the NBA and has been given many nicknames such as "shelltoe" or "sea shells" due to the rubber shell on its toe. The Adidas Superstar trainer has been worn by many big names, beginning with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. In the years following, the trainer would be seen on the feet of Run-D.M.C., Andy Murray, David Beckham and, most recently, Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Their clean lines and various colours allow both men and women to rock this style and make it all their own. To really make your Adidas Superstar trainers stand out, throw any colour on with a pair chinos and a simple T-shirt.
Vans Slip-on PlimsollsIn 1966, four men, including the Van Doren brothers, opened up the Van Doren Rubber Company in Cypress, California. These shoes, now known as Vans, are some of the coolest trainers ever made and were immediately adopted into the skateboarding community and anyone who was a "real skateboarder" would be seen wearing Vans. The company even built its own skatepark in 2014 in Huntington Beach, California - a place for their fans to enjoy the shoes and the sport. The defining feature of these shoes, what puts them on the list of the coolest trainers, is that they do not have laces. Instead, they were designed with two sections of elastic so that the wearers can slip them on and go. Vans Slip-Ons also come in many colours and patterns, including the very well known black and white checked. The Van Doren brothers managed to create an extremely simple shoe that many have attempted to replicate, but nothing is as versatile and attractive as the original.
