There aren't many fashion items that stand the test of time, but when it comes to footwear there is no question as to the longevity of the humble white trainer.
Originally introduced to the world as a sports shoe, these days you're just as likely to find one on the feet of a fashion week f'row-goer as you are on a tennis court.
Whether it's a chunky-soled number or a sleek sock-boot style, a colour-splashed pair by Stella or a knitted slip-on from COS, it's never not the right time to embrace a pair of box-fresh kicks.
Just take cues from Meghan Markle, who can't live without her Veja trainers. We love the French retailer because of its ethical stance; all of the brand's materials are sourced locally and organically with the protection for the environment as a priority. Yaas.
One of Net-A-Porter's best sellers across the site, their sales are currently +179% and Global Buying Director at the brand, Elizabeth Von Der Goltz, claims that the 'huge sale lifts' have been 'since [Meghan] wore them'.
