The 22 coolest trainers of summer

It's time. 

Knock those woolly socks to the back of the drawer, hide the winter coat in the depths of the wardrobe and get rid of all evidence of novelty Christmas boxers. In fact, best just bin them.

Spring has pushed aside the drear of winter and emerged with a sun-soaked Bank Holiday, filling our horizon with weekends in beer gardens and evenings spent eating questionably pink meat from the barbecue.

All of which means you're going to need the right footwear for the occasion. This season is far from subtle, with new models keeping material to a minimal, and reworked classis given an absurd splash of colour.

Here are the best trainers and casual footwear to make the most of the (brief) summer ahead.
