En Brogue: The Trainers Guide
Trainers are no longer just reserved for the gym. From the office to the catwalk (and even hidden under wedding dresses), trainers have become a must-have fashion staple for women of all ages.
Who better to chart the history of this most comfortable form of footwear than flat shoe expert and blogger Hannah Rochell of enbrogue.com?
Here Hannah picks over 40 styles of trainers – including your favourite iconic brands and some exciting collaborations – and shares her knowledge and style tips on how you can wear them and look great.
From Reebok Classics to designer Dior Fusion sneakers, and from limited edition Liberty print Nike Air Max to the ubiquitous Converse All Star, flat shoes have never been more comfortable… and trainers have never been more in style.
Reviews of En Brogue: The Trainers Guide
“Flat-shoe expert Hannah Rochell of enbrogue.com charts the history of the trainer in this beautifully illustrated book.”
“The New Shoe Bible. Remember when Raf Simons revealed his £740 Dior trainers last year? Whether you thought they were gorgeous or just plain gaudy, you’ll want to pick up Hannah Rochell’s second book, En Brogue: The Trainers Guide, which takes a look at the story behind those designer kicks and a whole lot more.”
