melissa-trainers.jpgToday's trainer du jour is a little different from what you might be used to pulling on before a session at the gym, but rather than go with the obvious New Year's resolution fitness shoe angle, we've decided to stick to our love of innovative style. And whatever you might think of this particular look, you have to admit it's original! 

Melissa's unique brand of rubber manipulation has resulted in a trainer that's almost 100% waterproof, lightweight and undoubtedly deliciously-scented, too. We love the nod to the fetish look, created here not so much by the rubber itself, but by the effect of rounded-off studs created by the molding. Genius! It's just gone on sale at Brandalley, where you can pick up the style for £32 rather than a usual £85.
