A trusted pair of trainers are a wardrobe essential at any age. 

Wear with a casual summer dress, pop them on with jeans to do your errands, or wear them to work and save your feet stylishly. 

Right now there's one pair high on our radar, which promise to jazz up any outfit – the Elma Rainbow Stripe Leather Trainers from John Lewis & Partners

Why we rate it

These stylish sneakers are made from leather, and use underfoot foam cushioning for optimum comfort, which is just what we need for long summer days on our feet.

They feature a white leather main canvas, with a shimmering rainbow stripe on the side. 

The lace up trainers have a branded JLP stud, and a heel height of 3cm. 

They're available in UK shoe sizes three to eight, although the larger sizes are selling out fast. 

The best part, is they are currently on offer, and have been reduced by 20% as part of John Lewis' latest sale, from £75 to £60 – a fair price for fabulously versatile trainers. 

However you wear these gorgeous new shoes, this deal is not to be missed.
