The coolest trainers of the woven revolution

"Woven trainers?" we said with a vast dollop of scepticism back in 2014, upon hearing word of the high street surge in threadbare shoe designs. "It'll never catch on."

We're glad we were wrong.

Having revolutionised running shoes and football boots, the lightweight fabric technology is transforming trainer models - shedding stitched canvas for svelte designs and breathable releases, and inspiring a cut-up rush of leather pretenders.

Yet to be convinced? We've rounded up the best of the current crop of woven wonders for your perusal.
