    The time when sneakers were considered too casual or too sporty, and belonged almost exclusively to the gym are far gone now, and we’re so glad. The sneaker trend has grown to numerous different styles that have nothing to do with training: dad chunky trainers, sleek posh ones, all white… we could just go on and on.

    However to make your life easier and help you save some money, we’ve rounded up 12 great neutral gym trainers that you can actually wear outside and still rock your outfit in style. 2 in 1, what’s better than that?
