Whether you stuff a pair of smelly pumps into your gym bag each morning, or painstakingly clean your limited edition sneakers with a toothbrush, the trainer has a role in almost everyone's wardrobe. This exhibition (presented by shoe and handbag e-commerce site Javari.co.uk) looks at the influence of the sporty product on fashion, as well as fashion's influence on the humble trainer, transforming it from a functional form, to a striking style statement. Exhibits include Mo Farah's track shoes, Kanye West's Yeezys (which sold at auction for a staggering $90,000) and pumps from the private collections of the Gallagher brothers. Also expect trainers with heels, collectable classics and rare vintage trainers.
