PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) - Nothing says laid-back American style like throwing on your favourite pair of trainers. And classic American style is here to stay this summer as online shoe shop Sarenza has noticed a surge in sales on their selection of American footwear brands.

At the start of the spring/summer 2011 season, Sarenza noticed that brands such as Converse Chuck Taylor, Skechers trainers and Ecko footwear had a huge rise in sales. Whether it is the hot sunny days or tabloids showing the bevy of LA starlets out jogging in the Hollywood sun – something about summer draws us to the perfect pair of all-American kicks.

With festival season fast approaching, many music-lovers are packing their wellies along with a pair of understated yet stylish American classic trainers. Nothing says festival chic like sporting rolled-up denim shorts and a pair of trainers. And the beauty behind these all-American classic trainers is that you can stroll in comfort – without compromising on style!

It is easy to find the perfect 'sneaker' for you. With many of these brands being celebrity favourites you can achieve an A-lister look on a budget.

Long established brand Converse Chuck is still proving to be a wardrobe essential and the signature Converse All Star is the go-to shoe for rockers and fashion queens alike. Converse All Stars have become as synonymous to USA style as the American flag itself!

New Jersey brand Ecko Footwear is a favourite with street style savvy celebs. The iconic rhino logo can be seen on the famous feet of urban artists – perfect for those who want a modern urban look without breaking the bank.

Skechers, another celebrity favourite, has been fronted by pop starlet Christina Aguilera in the past and most recently, reality queen and celebrity of the moment Kim Kardashian – further cementing Skechers Trainers as an American footwear favourite.
