Zara's Ballerina Trainers Are the Shoes You Never Knew You Needed

When it comes to mastering the next big trend, no fast-fashion brand gets it quite like Zara. But every so often, the retailer goes even further with its own take on the must-haves of the moment, creating something totally new and unexpected. Sure, we never knew we needed these new shoes before, but we are suddenly desperate to own them.

Zara's latest amalgamation takes two reader favourites, trainers and the ballet trend, and combines them into the next It footwear: ballerina sneakers. From the moment we spotted the lace-up trainers on Zara's website, we knew this design was going to fly off the shelves (both physical and digital). 

The lace-up trainers take the athleisure trend and adds a feminine twist. And while we wouldn't recommend heading out on a jog in the new design, they're great for the office or even weekend brunch. Style them with your favourite cropped jeans or a floral dress, and you're good to go.
