The hottest new party trainers that will save your feet this Christmas

No matter how hard we try, there always comes a point on a big night out when we simply can't hack wearing heels anymore. Many an evening has seen us victoriously pull off our stilletos in the middle of a dance floor or hobble in an ungainly manner towards the taxi rank, feet in agony, before the clock strikes midnight.

And if this sounds familiar, fear not, for both the high street and high end designers have released Autumn/Winter shoe collections that include our favourite new piece of footwear - the party sneaker.

Bedazzled, bejewelled or coated in glitter, the party sneaker is the beautiful (and comfortable) alternative to heels that will perfectly accessorise any outfit and leave you able to dance all night long.

Say hello to your Christmas party saviour.
