GALLERY: Olympic trainers and shoes
The stated intention of the Olympics is to 'inspire a generation', and we've certainly seen that inspiration filtering through to our friends in the shoe designing community this summer! Olympic rings, torches, colours and flags are appearing all over all types of footwear from uber sporty trainers you could actually compete in - to the sort of heels that make walking into a world class feat in itself.
Many of our best-loved brands have come over a bit Olympic this season, from Aruna Seth to Nike (despite the question mark hanging over their goods being allowed in the arena) - and we've collected up the evidence here. Check out also some of the cool customisations that Olympic fans around the world have created.
