Forget Jimmy Choo - these are the shoes real mums need!

Slip-ons (£49, boden.co.uk)

Pink + pattern = the cheeriest of slip-ons for spring. Just add skinny jeans for an instant style makeover. 
Expand Image

Gold snake-effect plimsolls (£24, next.co.uk)

Up the glamour in these designer-look sneaks. The gold finish means you can (just about) get away with wearing them for a night out, too (if you ever have one...).

Soft 7 hi-tops (£120, shopeu.ecco.com)

Not cheap, but the signature Ecco comfort will have you sighing with relief when you’re pushing the pram around the park for hour number three. They come in white and black as well as this cheery coral.

Snake detail sneakers (£22, topshop.com)

In a faded vintage blue, these textured sneakers will look fresh for spring. Great with denim.
Expand Image

Flower trim plimsolls (£19.99, newlook.com)

When you want something a tiny bit dressier, these embellished trainers will fit the bill.
Expand Image

Hi-tops (£10, primark.com/en)

Hello, top bargain. They’ll go with everything, the sole’s super-springy and at that price you can splash out on more than one colour.
Expand Image

Floral lace-ups (£6, primark.com/en)

Summer IS coming, we promise, and these pretty floral sneakers will be perfect for holiday and fun family days out.
Expand Image

Glove Puppet silver slip-ons (£45, clarks.co.uk)

Squint a bit and these could be Prada or Dior. Clarks has come up trumps with a couture look and heavenly soles made with Cushion Soft technology. 
Expand Image

Metallic skater pumps (from £14, bhs.co.uk)

Wipe-clean and easy to match with everything in your wardrobe: two benefits for any busy mum.
Expand Image

Gold slip-ons (£10, matalan.co.uk)

The texture of these gives them a shimmer which will work well in summer with shorts or a maxi (and – oh, we can hope - a tan).
Expand Image

Floral hi-tops (£75, riverisland.co.uk)

If you like your hi-tops to look more stylish than sporty, then these statement lily print ones are for you. 
Expand Image

Perforated plimsolls (£18, tuclothing.sainsburys.co.uk)

Preppy white tennis shoes are a fashion perennial, and these mix good looks with a welcome low price. 

Great news mums! Welcome to the perfect ‘mum shoe’. Sneakers, hi-tops and skater slip-ons are your go-to this spring: comfortable, easy and bang on-trend. Perfect for running around after tiny tots, ideal for weekend adventures and blissful for those days when you’re on your feet from dusk ‘til dawn. Finally the time has come to put your heels at the back of the wardrobe, because this season’s all about the statement trainer.

The trend has been gaining momentum over the last few years, with high street must haves and old-school favourites making a come back. No longer reserved for gym visits or hectic commutes, you can now rock your get fit runners anywhere and everywhere.
