So, we’ve looked at the triple white trend – and yeah, you guessed it, it’s time to flip reverse it and look at our triple black selection. The two go hand in hand really. All black trainers continue to be the basic staple when it comes to sneakers. From simple black skate shoes to layered, textured and mixed materials – there’s an all black silhouette to suit every style.

We’ve chosen a few of our most-wanted all black styles for men and women from adidas, Nike, Puma, Reebok and Vans. Read on and choose your favourite.

adidas zx flux nps tech all black trainers schuh

 ZX Flux Tech NPS

If like your trainers techy and slick, the glossy finish on the ZX Flux Tech NPS is the one. Neoprene, the embossed three stripes and that signature moulded heel cage. Tech trainer heaven.

 Puma Aril Evolution all black trainers schuh

Puma Aril Evolution

The Puma Aril Evolution is an aptly named evolution of the popular 90s runner the R968. It’s a bit retro, a bit techy and a lot comfy. The layers of contrasting materials and finishes create a nice tone-on-tone black effect. It’s all mesh and TPU saddles (extra support bits for your foot) and special tread – oooh fancy.

Vans Old Skool all black trainers skate schuh

Vans Old Skool

If you prefer a less techy slant when it comes to footwear, the triple black Vans Old Skool may well be the one for you. Seriously cool, this is one of the easiest go-to trainers you can buy.

Reebok Classic Leather

Fans of a retro icon will love the Reebok Classic. This definitive 90s style is set to be huge for summer and is already big on the street style circuit. Soft black leather on a chunky sole – it makes a statement.

Nike Air Force 1 Low all black  trainers

Nike Air Force 1 Low

The Nike Air Force 1 Low is a trainer with attitude that’s made its way off the court and onto the feet of stylish people everywhere. The chunkier profile is adored by Rihanna who wears hers everywhere from the front row with a soft tailored trouser to a club with a sequin mini dress. RiRi knows.

The greatest thing about the all black or all white styles is that they are timeless, and so easy to wear. They’ll instantly become your go-to trainers.
