Looking for a summer serve? Whether it’s channelling the Challengers hype, finetuning your Wimbledon fit or simply making the most of the season, make sure you do it all with a pair of tennis shoes – aka, this season’s biggest city staple – on your feet.

Tennis Shoes Are Our New Summer Staple

With a heatwave now under our belt, we can safely say that summer is finally upon us – as is the season’s biggest dilemma: what to wear? While shorts, linen shirts, maxi skirts and tea dresses might be on the cards, the topic of footwear can be slightly trickier. British summer is infamously hot-and-cold, literally. With sandals and flipflops off the table – we’re putting our dogs well away when it comes to tube travel – there’s only one thing left to slip your feet into. We’re, of course, talking about the sleek white fashion trainer, which has undergone a recent rebranding as tennis shoes.

This style of trainer always tends to pick up speed during the summer, with sporting events like Wimbledon calling for casual chic alternatives to an open-toe shoe. Worn by players and audiences alike, the iconic white shoe is immediately synonymous with tennis – but it’s also a big hit with the city style set, who like to swap out their skorts and sundresses for light-wash denim and a dainty knit slung over their shoulder.

However you choose to wear them, tennis shoes will undoubtedly be a wardrobe staple for many a-social occasion this summer. Still need to grab yours? These are our top picks for SS24:
