“Turbo” trainers are taking over and we don’t know how to feel

If provocation is the main driving force in the fashion industry today, the “turbo” trainer is its latest shock tactic. Giving military footwear a streetstyle makeover is this season’s alleged It shoe. Complete with army-grade soles and rope for laces, the “turbo” trainer is apparently every bit as practical as it is fashionable… should we need to climb a mountain to get to work.

With their arguably desirable Terminator meets 1990s meets post-apocalyptic dystopian future aesthetic, these sneakers on steroids in all their globular glory have raised more than a few eyebrows - ours included. And so we ask, would you wear them?
