We know that Barrington’s watch winder owners are gentlemen of taste and style. That’s why we’re confident that you are a man who appreciates a fine piece of casual footwear. Whether you’re hitting the block or off to the pub, we’ve rounded up five of 2016’s hottest men’s trainers which you should include on your Christmas list – presuming you’ve been a good boy, of course.

1. Nike Flyknit Racer

With their original black model totally sold out, Nike are releasing this great-looking knit-effect trainer in a very compelling olive shade. We’re hooked on the textured style and the cosy feel of this seriously on-trend shoe.

2. Puma x UEG Court Play

An awesome collaboration which blends that classic streetwear Puma shape with a futuristic UEG upgrade, complete with a striking monochrome palette. Don’t mind if we do…

3. Common Projects Achilles Retro

With a low profile and immaculate finish, these trainers from US brand Common Projects take “less is more” to the next level. Their elegant simplicity and top notch calf leather make for a superior pair of sneakers ideal for any wardrobe.

4. Adidas x Rick Owens Mastodon

For trainers named after a dinosaur, these kicks certainly offer plenty of contemporary appeal. Ridiculously good-looking leathers with an on-trend textural element sit atop a chunky Rick Owens heel, creating a trainer you’ll want to splash out on.

5. Greats Royale Court

Beautiful craftsmanship, Italian manufacturing and immaculate design combine in Greats’ game changing footwear – and their Royale Court shoe is no exception to this rule. You’re going to want to make this your signature shoe – trust us.
