Too good for the gym: 14 of the most iconic trainers

Sure, we love a pair of heels when the moment's right, but from day-to-day, we can't help but keep turning to our old friends: trainers. 

Whether we're nipping to the pub in a pair of Levis 501s teamed with a bashed-up old trusty pair of Converse, or cracking out some box-fresh Stan Smiths to pair with sharp androgynous tailoring; trainers are our go-to footwear of choice. 

As more and more classics return to the shops (like the fash pack's recent out pouring of love for the Nike Cortez), and designers bringing out their own styles, we're almost spoilt for choice when it comes to trainers.

With that in mind, we've compiled 14 of the most iconic trainers of all time - so you know where to start.

It might be a little difficult to choose, though. Take a look below.
